I could see a Trump/Palin or a Trump/Christie, but I think even those are long shots. Heck maybe it will be Trump/Carson.
Trump and Sanders have similar issue with trade. Trump has already said what his remedies are but Sanders hasn't. He just complains about it. I am curious what his solution is. Now even Hillary is threatening companies that want to move out. Can you say Trump-effect? Problem is she will drop it the day after she is elected.

Interesting thought, unlikely, but interesting.

That ticket would easily win the election, no questions asked! That would be an outsider ticket on roids!

You're right btw, Sanders absolutely smoked Hillary in the debate tonight. I was shocked. Go Bernie, Go!

I think this is actually true. And I honestly believe that Bernie would be appalled to hear himself linked to Trump as a running mate.

But I am also appalled by the number of people saying they would vote for Trump over Hillary even though they are ardent Sanders supporters. I can only hope that if he loses the nomination and supports Hillary as he has indicated he would, he will be able to convince his supporters that letting Trump or another Republican take the presidency is the last thing he wants.

Ridonkulous

I've always thought Bernie's stances on trade were more substantive than Trump's but I'm a Bernie supporter and you a Trump supporter. To me, Trump is not too substantive on anything. Of course he has his "people" draw up anything that takes some scholarly explanation --yes, I know, I know, even though I realize that Trump is a "really smart person"-- so explanations on his website are much more professionally presented than how he speaks about them.

This.

This would be a common place assumption from my perspective. Sanders is a bit left of Clinton who is left of all the republicans. John Kasich is the most moderate and all the rest are more on the right, with Trump being the least and Cruz is probably the most on the right. The way i see it.

Having similar opinions on one issue is not enough. Sanders has put out plans on taxes, health insurance, prison/justice reform, college education, Wall Street reform. More vague plans on military spending and trade.

Hillary is in the pockets of Wall Street, everyone knows that, no matter what she tries to say, just look at the pacs supporting her and where that money comes from.

How about President Sanders appoints Donald Trump as the White House Spokesman?
