ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). STORY: A warm welcome for Democratic Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders in Vermont Wednesday (June 8), a day after after rival Hillary Clinton clinched the Democratic Party's nomination in a last round of state nominating contests on Tuesday. Clinton called Sanders on Tuesday night, and during a celebratory rally in Brooklyn she praised his candidacy, saying their "vigorous debate" during the nominating contest had been good for the Democratic Party. Democrats in both camps said they expect to see more specific olive branches offered to Sanders in the weeks ahead, including compromises on the issues platform to be adopted at the party's July nominating convention and reforms in a Democratic primary process that Sanders criticized as rigged to favor the establishment. U.S. President Barack Obama will meet with him on Thursday at Sanders' request, White House spokesman Josh Earnest said.
