At the very least he would get the independents to 5% in votes, which supposedly gives them better funding in the next election.

Not to mention taking votes away from the "other" democratic option.

It would be the best thing that could happen for the Republican party.

According to Bernies philosophy, sometimes you need to go backwards to move forwards. If he thinks Trump being elected is going backwards, but could possibly help elections in the future. Then he should do what he preaches, run as an independent and stop supporting the party that keeps screwing him. With the hope that future elections could possibly get better because of it.

Would be nice, but I am not sure that sort of self sacrifice exists in DC. Otherwise, term limits would have happened long ago.

Iowa boondoggle aftermath.

Jeff Weaver, senior adviser to Bernie Sanders’ campaign:
“the whole process has been a fraud for 100 years.”

Dirty birdies?


I saw a comment from Chris Matthews over the weekend:
"Democrats better go find someone who can beat Trump"
"Bernie Sanders will never be President"

Hey?

'The Bernie Sanders campaign spent just under $1.2 million on private jet travel last quarter, outpacing the entire 2020 Democratic presidential primary field.

The most recent filing from Sanders reveals $1,199,579 in spending during the final three months of 2019 to Apollo Jets, LLC, a "luxury private jet charter service." The campaign spent an additional $23,941 for transportation to Virginia-based Advanced Aviation Team.'

Keeping it green.

Bernie hates America.

I'm thinking more in the Deblasio vein. Ruin as fast as possible is his motto too.

Other than she would probably like to punch him in the face, no problemo I guess.

I don't think Tulsi wants anything to do with a Castro praising Marxist.

Did anyone see the 60 minutes interview by Anderson Cooper with Bernie? Anderson is a staunch dem and was asking tough questions. What I took from the interview is that I think the Dems are scared shitless that this guy is going to get the nomination. He just seemed in disbelief as to what Bernie was saying. Many liberals will not be on board with his policies.

Think again, Gonzo. Tulsi was an outspoken supporter of Bernie in 2016. She went to war with the DNC over how they treated him. They have similar positions on many issues. I think iconoclast is onto something.

Yep, you're right. I swooshed right over her past endorsement.

What I haven't seen is her embrace his policies. If someone can post that, then I'm with Iconos train of thought.
She's antiwar, so she sure wasn't endorsing Hill.

All I hear is No War Bernie.


I just can't see him picking a more moderate VP just to please people. I'm sticking with a far lefter.

same here but what choice does he have? he can't run as any other party so he has to go with it.
the likes of Bernie & AOC are why years ago the CPUSA stopped nominating their own candidates on the grounds that it would be redundant.
