What if Hillary is indicted? Sanders might have a chance to win the Democrat nomination?
Sanders is not a good looking man. He has a bad comb-over. The nation will never vote for him. It's a shame we're so shallow, but it is what it is. Sanders is too socialist. O'Malley has a better shot. He has a good look, and presence.
I agree a third party could take away votes...absolutely. Just like Nader did in 2000. However, where you are wrong is in the first part of your post. Liberals are not the base of the Democratic party. I wish they were but we are not. The base of the party is the moderate/centrists. So it more like discussing cats and dogs.
Sorry, this actually was a trick question. Its a trick question because it is nearly impossible to tell us what Obama did to increase the debt, because he really didn't. OK you could tell us that Obama did not fix the debt infrastructure as he continued the wars and continued the tax cuts that let to much of the debt.
Obama blaming Bush was actually quite on target, because Bush actually did champion legislation that lead to deficit spending, including Medicare Part D, starting two wars and paying for those wars with tax cuts... You will remember, of course, that Bush began is term with an ostensibly balanced budget and ended it with huge deficits AND he actually had policies that effected the government spending (and receipt) infrastructure. He pretty much is holding the bag when the music stops...

The president of the United States answers your question as clear as he can. The thing is he did exactly what he accused Bush of doing, but far worse making him the most unpatriotic President ever. This is the president answering your question.
Liberals - Punish the Successful, Reward the Unsuccessful
Liberals - Tax, Borrow, Spend, and Give Free Stuff
Obama's legacy - President Donald Trump
Doubt he'll have a chance, probably a bit too left to get enough of the base interested. Not to mentioned the DNC will do everything it can to derail him as fast as possible, knowing if he somehow managed to win they'd be screwed in the general (GOP would just say the word socialist every 5 seconds and win in a landslide because...America).
While Hillary isn't my choice, neither is Sanders. I'm hoping more candidates enter the field.
The benefit to having Sanders run will be that he will expose rifts in the party that Hillary Clinton needs to address and champion,, such as the lack of funds to do basic things like fix our nations crumbling roads.
