Bernie for Vice President, Insist on It!

Bernie as a VP candidate would help keep new voters involved. However, if Hillary asks for Bernie as VP, defense contractors would start mistrusting Hillary, but not if some enthusiastic voter and delegates clamored for Bernie as VP. In Pennsylvania voters select their Presidential choice plus delegates from their Congressional District. If at least one Hillary or Bernie delegate in one's District praises the idea of pushing for a Bernie VP, let's split our vote toward those who admire the idea of a Bernie VP. In 1980 Ed Rendell, who is also a super-delegate today, received 28 votes for Vice President.

Running against Bernie makes Hillary a better. more progressive candidate. Even if she ends up backing trade agreements, she will be less pushy with a VP who contradicts her

Hillary never calls Bernie's ideas dangerous, or bad for business, or a threat to Defense jobs, thus endangering the economy. She just accuses him of being “pie in the sky.” Nader and significant progressive third party candidates endured. Thank you Bernie for a better Hillary and thank you Hillary for not discrediting Bernie's goals.

If in part due to Hillary's unwitting help Bernie gets the Presidential spot then picks Elizabeth Warren VP he will face more hysteria then Nader did, or any third party progressive candidate with clout. Socialist Eugene Debs ran for President from a prison cell. However. with a Hillary-ite, Obama-ite as Bernie's VP I think he could still win against Trump even more than could Hillary by herself, Since Americans now like glamor Michelle Obama a perfect VP for Bernie. Oprah would be perfect for both Hillary and Bernie. Infatuation with glamor engulfs the entire spectrum of Americana. President JFK and his glamorous wife inspired decades of longing for Camelot. The heroic glamor of actor, football star, activist Paul Robeson was erased for awhile from our history books by the Joe McCarthy witch-hunts.

Trump is a chameleon, not a fascist, he was articulate and emphatic in the 1970 Reform Party race against Pat Buchanan’s dividing and polarizing people. In NY he is suddenly more liberal than Cruz. For even-handedness in the Middle East. then spoke hysterically against Iran at the AIPAC Convention. Fined for hiring illegals, as soon as he needs immigrant new American votes he will discover al Qaeda is killing translators, and we need more, and that if illegals got their minimum back wages, and hospital bills that Medicare should have paid, as well as transportation back, with employers forced to pay for it, the Hispanic vote would become mixed. A likely Trump-Carson ticket would stop blacks from being terrified of him. Established Democratic leaders and radical reformers need to work together to stop Trump.

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

In the 1970 Reform Party race Trump stood up to Buchanan's polarizing and dividing the nation. Before condemning illegal immigrants he was fined for hieing them. Urged even-handedness in the Middle East then before an AIPAC meeting condemned Iran.

Still to come: Suddenly discovering that Al Qaeda is killing translators and there is a desperate need for more to come to America, If workers got their back minimum wage as employers were charged for fairs back to Mexico economic immigration would die down. Ben Carson becomes VP as blacks yawn.

NY Times and Washington Post get new names New York Trump and Washington Trump and gets referred to as Dear Leader:

I do not support Sanders for Vice-President. He will be able to accomplish much more in the Senate. As VP he would be shuffled into a dead-end by Clinton.

Besides, how can he primary Clinton in 2020 if he's the VP?

In 1980 Thomas Eagleton the VP candidatge dropped in favor of Mondale.

Tricky Dicky dirty tricked his way into a landslidein both elections.

Hillary could drop out if it looks like she will be smeared into being another McGovern
