Neither are going to win the primary of their party, but it would be interesting.

What about Rick Perry vs Jim Webb

Rick Perry might have trouble running a campaign from his prison cell.

Ron Paul would be way better than Rand Paul, too bad he isn't running anymore.

@TBR - Not with that attitude! I'm not saying that you said this, but I see many people being brainwashed by the media saying "Bernie Sanders won't win", so they think their vote will be a waste if they vote for him, even if they support him, so they'll be voting for Hillary Clinton instead. (Best run-on ever). Most ridiculous logic I have ever seen, next to GOP logic. Come on guys, of course he won't win without your vote.

I have no doubt I will vote in the PRIMARY'S for Bernie. I am also sure he will NOT get the nomination, and if he did, would be a very uphill battle in the general.

Him coming in is GREAT for Hillary. All she has to so to show how "not left" she is - is point at him.

I think Rand could win the nomination. He's polling extremely well for a libertarian Republican. Sanders can't beat Hillary
