    That is kinda a moot point since McCain is going to beat Obama in a landslide. Romney too come to think of it...

    Perhaps true with the right-wing....but sorry....left-wing voters are going to cast their votes for Hillary in the GE because we recognize that we are never going to get much more than a left-leaning moderate. That is just political reality...something that the right-wing doesn't really understand as well. I think moderate Republican voters get it, but the radical right-wing wants to push the party further to the right which truly does end up losing voters.

    My heart says yes but my head says no.

    He has blown up all over social media far more than Hilary has, however. People I didn't even know were interested in politics have been bringing him up. I think he'll give Hilary a closer run for her money than people expect.

    Since Sanders is an Independent, not a democrat, he's not likely to be the democratic candidate. If he runs as an Independent, I'd sure take a look at him, but his chances of winning would be slim.

    he can certainly bring forth discussion on all the issues that Big Money does not want in the Media.
    He's a Democratic Socialist and that translates to somenone looking out for the interests of the
    people, not the CORPORATIONS. A friggin' breath of fresh, uncorrupted air stepping into a steaming
    cauldron of pig crap.
    Lol !!

    How does Socialism look out for the interest of the people ? By destroying economies ?

    Mismanaging what were once private run industries into bankruptcy ?

    By running up massive amounts of unsustainable debt and refusing to pay back creditors ?

    Bernie Sanders ideas are nothing new and its hard to believe people in this day and age buy into his rhetoric.

    His policies would pull the plug on a American economy thats already on life support.

    Sanders is widely liked in Vermont, but he's not National Primary material. Sorry, Bernie. I love ya, but it ain't gonna happen.

    Lessee now. The USA has saved from bankruptcy the auto industry, the banking industry, the steel
    industry, the home-building industry, and etc. That running up massive amounts of unsustainable
    debt sounds pretty familiar and pretty current ever since ol' GWBush nearly bankrupted the Nation.
    How is it you blame this crap on Bernie? He could not be worse economically compared to the morons
    we have suffered.
