    I think a lot of candidates run for president for reasons other than becoming president. Even Bill Clinton, according to Hillary, ran for president in 1992 never thinking he would win the nomination, let alone the White House. He was simply building a national following and name recognition for a run in 1996. I seriously doubt Al Sharpton thought he would get elected. Some people run to create a warm market for their book they plan to write, develop stature as a speaker, get their own tv talk show or simply get the issues they care about discussed and considered.

    To me he's like Bachmann running in 2012. Someone with nearly no shot, but possibly has the chance to steer the field a bit more to their ideological direction

    Not a bad comparison. Bachmann wasn't very successful in that however.

    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.

    LOL You didn't even look at that chart. Obama did not cause the deficits...he warned us that what Bush was doing would result in them. Obama has cut the Bush deficits in half.

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

    Right now it looks like Democrats have two choices, Hillary and all her "issues" or the self confessed Democratic Socialist Bernie Sanders.

    Now there is the former Governor of Maryland, Martin J. O'Malley who was governor January 17, 2007 to January 21, 2015. Eight years of his leadership and look what all those Democratic polices have produced for Maryland? Over 20% of folks who live in Baltimore are on the government payroll. Not to mention the up rises of Hell we have seen across our T.V. screens unfold where police were told to stand down while folks destroyed dozens upon dozens of businesses and left the place in shambles. Oh how I do hope he throws his hat into the ring as he helped build what Baltimore is today......

    And then there is talk of Al Gore running again. Yes Al Gore who claimed all the polar bears would have perished by now and in just 266 days from his original prediction the coastlines of our country would disappear.

    Oh please God, let them all throw their hat in because every one of them is the epitome of what is wrong with this country. One can only hope it is a dream come true.

    Admit it! You still can't answer the question. Even when you pray out to the Lord, you still come up short.

    There is NOTHING in that video that explains what Obama did (or Bush did, for the matter) to specifically drive up the debt (Now my previous post actually shows the actions of Bush, in terms of championing legislation, that affected the debt). All the video did is show Obama accusing Bush of running up the credit card.... nice campaign rhetoric, but it explains nothing.

    As to the matter of what Obama specifically did, when challenged multiple times, Born Free could not explain himself. His continued inability to show us what Obama specifically did is a de facto concession that he does not know. Without evidence to the contrary, we are left with the conclusion that Obama did nothing (or comparatively very little, see my previous post).

    It's simple debate theory, pal. Lick your wounds and move on.

    True enough.

Hilary will have no problems appealing to the base of the party and liberals will come out and hold their nose and vote for her because they know what the altervative is.
    Yeah, but that's not sexy. Why not be sure to it that through the primary process that somebody without Hillary's stench is nominated so that no one has to hold their noses in order to vote for a president!??

    One thing though, if elected, he'll be facing an uphill battle trying to get corporate America to get onto his boat, I'm sure they despise him already.
    What this country needs is more like him, to balance things out between wage disparity and equality.
