Thoughts?

I think he's a good, principled guy, even though I think he's categorically wrong on quite a bit. I'm glad that he's willing to give Hillary Clinton a run for her money.

I should note that this article posits that he'll run as a Democrat; that's an interesting development since, though Sanders caucuses with the Dems, he's technically listed as an independent.

I hope he wins the Democratic nomination so Walker wins by a landslide!

I'm still waiting for Vermin Supreme to announce his candidacy for this election. Once that happens, Hillary is gonna get crushed by the power of unicorns and free dental plans.

Categorically wrong?

Also, while I have the same ideology as Sanders, I wouldn't vote for him to be president. I've been under the impression (correct me if I'm wrong in my impression) that the POTUS' actions are ultimately subservient to the rulings of Congress.

I feel that anything Congress would do as Sanders would be president would only become a useful weapon in the hands of anti-socialists.

Yeah, there are several arguments he makes -- be it on trade, taxes, the MW, or otherwise -- that are flat wrong. The argument he uses, that he probably took from Robert Reich, that because tax rates were higher under Eisenhower, in a *pre-globalization* world, they ought to be hire now fail even the most superficial smell test.
