Is he going to write a new speech?

New rule - you have to be a member in good standing of a party to run as candidate for that party…

I am disappointed but not surprised. It seems almost impossible for any dedicated longtime politician to make way for a new generation.

Pray NOT as an independent. That could absolutely assure a Trump reelection by splitting the progressive and left-of center vote.

If Bernie wants to join the crowd of candidates for the Democratic nomination, so be it. He will add to the debate, but I doubt that he will succeed. The field has a lot of good, progressive talent, most of whom also share youth.

I can already see a vast amount of the people who were screaming about how Nancy Pelosi was a decrepit old fogey who needed to be replaced by someone young and vibrant and dynamic saying that BERNIE IS THE WAY! Such youth! Such vibrancy! Such dynamism! And a wife who uses Republican talking points against a fellow Democratic candidate, too!

Gee, I haven’t been this excited since they announced they were making another sequel to “Fifty Shades Of Grey”.
Someone calm me down before I soil my panties.

I have a feeling this won’t go well for him.

He has a perpective that can’t hurt the debate. We have to be enraged and engaged. He helps that.

A person wishing to Save this Republic would

  • go through the same processes that Booker, Klobuchar, Harris, Gillibrand, Warren et al have

  • VIGOROUSLY support the Democratic Nominee should he/she lose the Nomination

That is WHY, when Booker and Harris and Klobuchar joined the race, there was mild curiosity, coupled with various types of interest… there were not the sorts of swoons I now see on this thread

Which tells me that this man is a Zealot and Spoiler until he shows otherwise
