Yes, the GOP establishment is scared. Just like The Hillary and all her support is.

Bernie Sanders is so old that he thinks Hillary Clinton is a youngster.

Old people need to be flushed out of politics. There's a fine line between "got it" and "lost it", and with the elderly, it can happen at any moment.

Nope, he will not win because he doesn't have access to the billions of dollars it takes to buy an election. But he can change the dialogue of the campaign, which will be good.

Ted would have to make it through the primaries and win the nomination in order for him to meet Clinton in a debate, which isn't likely.

Bring it Bernie!
I certainly hope you are not putting Perry in the same catagory with Ssnders for heaven's sake. You may not like him or his views but he extreme to the right like Sanders is to the left. if anyone takes Bernie seriously I can't wait to hear the debates.

Are you serious? You really think all independents are liberal? You do realize the majority consider themselves conservative or somewhat conservative don't You?

Yeah. My experience has generally been that people who label themselves independents are center/right. They may in some cases think the GOP is too moderate. Most people who call themselves moderate I consider to be liberal.

Given her negatives, if no other Democratic candidate runs, I wouldnt count him out. People are begging for other options.
