Oh joy, the Democrat Party might be reaching into the geriatric ward for presidential candidates. They really don’t have any leaders when you consider who the prominent people are, Donna Brazile, Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.
Bernie Sanders, the 75-year old Vermont Socialist Senator, might run in 2020. He won’t rule it out. He’d be 83 years of age before his first term ended. Can’t they find someone a little younger? There is always that 67 year old youngster Elizabeth Warren. She’d only be 71 years, a mere youngster and probably not experiencing dementia.
“Four years is a long time from now,” he said, noting that he faces re-election to the Senate in 2018. But he added: “We’ll take one thing at a time, but I’m not ruling out anything.”
He alone could make the case for term limits.
Bernie and Sen. Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts leftist, think Hillary Clinton lost because she didn’t talk enough about economic inequality and toughening up Wall Street regulations.
The two Socialists are jockeying for power.
“The final results may have divided us — but the entire electorate embraced deep, fundamental reform of our economic system and our political system,” Warren told the AFL-CIO on Thursday. “Working families across this country are deeply frustrated about an economy and a government that doesn’t work for them.”
“We will fight back against attacks on Latinos, African Americans, women, Muslims, immigrants, disabled Americans — on anyone. Whether Donald Trump sits in a glass tower or sits in the White House, we will not give an inch on this, not now, not ever,” she said.
Both senators support a no deportation policy.
Bernie has called for a political revolution to overturn our Capitalist system.
Sanders is backing the horrid Minnesota Rep. Keith Ellison.
Sanders said that millions of working-class voters’ decision to back Trump was “an embarrassment” to the party and they would have to make a stronger case.
“You cannot be a party which, on one hand, says we’re in favor of working people, we’re in favor of the needs of young people, but we don’t quite have the courage to take on Wall Street and the billionaire class. People do not believe that. You’ve got to decide which side you’re on.”
This is the best the party has.
