I Wish He'd Run for President

I would actively work on Bernie Sanders' campaign if he decided to run for president. Of course, if Hillary Clinton wants the Democratic Party nomination, she will get it and likely be the first woman ever elected president of the United States, something that should have happened 30 or 40 years ago.

That's despite all of the email bullshit "scandal" and the media hyped return of washed-up Bill Clinton groupie Monica Lewinsky, who should have changed her name and lived in obscurity instead of exploiting her long-ago 15 minutes of notoriety.

She's not just a has-been--she is a NEVER WAS.

Sanders would be a far better choice because he tells the truth and tells things like they really are without fear. I would even prefer him being running as an independent or third-party because he would keep the other candidates honest.

The fact someone like Sanders or Elizabeth Warren are considered possibilities for president--not that they aren't qualified--shows just how utterly divided the Democratic Party continues to be.

We have the Rubenite-type neoliberals who have polluted the party for thirty years versus everybody else.

They are going to be very difficult to fumigate out of the party.

Likewise the PNAC crowd that controls the GOP. No matter who gets the nod there, the person will not have a chance against Hillary Clinton (unless it's Jeb Bush, who we know is a crook who will not be above committing fraud in order to win). That person will still be beholden to the PNAC bunch.

Stay tuned.
