    Bernie Sanders Is Serious About Running for President

    Vermont Independent Senator Bernie Sanders has lined up veteran Democratic campaign strategist Tad Devine for a prospective 2016 presidential campaign, theWashington Postreported on Tuesday morning. “I believe he could deliver an enormously powerful message the country is waiting to hear right now and do it in a way that succeeds,” Devine, a former senior adviser to the Kerry-Edwards and Gore-Lieberman campaigns, told the Post’s Robert Costa.Tapping Devine is the latest sign that Sanders is serious about exploring a run, and not averse to the attention that comes with being seen as a presidential contender. Over the past year, Sanders—the Senate’s only self-described socialist, who caucuses with Democrats—has been speaking in increasingly strong terms about his willingness to run, and about presumed frontrunner Hillary Clinton’s potential vulnerabilities. “The Clinton Administration worked arm in arm with Alan Greenspan—who is, on economic matters, obviously, an extreme right-wing libertarian—on deregulating Wall Street, and that was a total disaster,” Sanders toldthe New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza. “And then you had the welfare issue, trade policies. You had the Defense of Marriage Act.”

    I want to see Sanders vs Bachmann is the general election.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    I predict the MSM will give him an average of about 1.5 minutes speaking time per debate.
