Report: Bernie Sanders Open To Presidential Run
« on: November 20, 2013, 08:26:10 PM »
He responds to the clamor of voice asking him to run.

Quote
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), the Senate’s most unabashedly progressive member, told the Burlington Free Press on Friday that he may run for President in 2016 if there is not a suitably liberal candidate.

Sanders, who identifies as a Democratic Socialist, cited the need for a candidate who can tamp down on Wall Street, oppose austerity cuts and tackle climate change.

“These are not normal times. The United States right now is in the middle of a severe crisis and you have to call it what it is,” Sanders told the paper.

Sanders joined the upper chamber in 2007. He grabbed headlines for a 8 hour and 30 minute speech in 2010 opposing the extension of the Bush era tax cuts.

Most "progressive" member? Well, yeah, he's a member all right, but I would not call collectivism of any kind "progressive".
