    Bingo. Which is why I am willing to elect a moderate democrat despite my own political views and preferences for a true liberal.

It isn't like if he wasn't running we would just vote for Hillary.

    In short, I think Hillary has just as much chance of winning the nomination with Bernie in it as she has without him. I am still glad he is in it, though. It will make the primary debates more interesting and he will at least try to keep Clinton honest.
    Clinton honest, you have to joking. If Sanders takes even one vote from her in the primary..........It will be worth it.

    I think people are really tired of Hillary....He might not win but he could take a big part of her vote away.

    He has a chance but he won't be the candidate on the ballot in 2015.

    can he win the nomination?... no... he can't

    Vegas has 100/1 odds on him.... they have 75/1 on Rick Perry.


    think about that for a minute.....

    The only place where he could take votes away from Hillary is in the primary elections. There is no way he could conceivably become the nominee of the Democratic Party.

    Why? Those people will end up voting for Clinton in the GE. It gains you nothing. Sorry.

    Re: Can Senator Sanders win the democratic nomination for president?

    I'm torn whether Sanders helps Hillary, by making her appear to be a moderate Democrat, or hurts her by forcing her to move leftward without capturing the energy of the base.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."
