Barack Obama expressed hope Wednesday that Bernie Sanders in "the next couple of weeks" will finally concede having lost the Democratic presidential nomination to Hillary Clinton, despite having vowed to fight on through the party's convention next month.Speaking to late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon, Obama said that on balance, Sanders's candidacy in the hardfought Democratic campaign was a positive.Obama, however, has a meeting planned with Sanders Thursday, at which he is expected to urge him to formally wrap up his campaign so that the divided party can reconcile and focus its energies on defeating Republican Donald Trump.He has yet to make a formal endorsement in the presidential race, although it is widely believed that his sympathies lie with Clinton, his former secretary of state, whom he vanquished in the battle for the Democratic nomination in 2008 .
