When you look at Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders you see another old, white dude in a suit. The man could easily be seen on a penny or a political button. He's textbook Presidential candidate. But if you look closer, and really listen to him...you'll see he's one of us.
Presidential Candidate Bernie Sanders dropped some knowledge on MSNBC today regarding his campaign. Sanders is kind of a wild-card, in the eyes of the media and everyone else. People have their eyes on Trump and Hillary, but Sanders is the real one to watch. He's a snake in the grass, except this snake isn't full of venom like the others.
Sanders says he's running his campaign for the American people, and not against anyone. Now that may sound like a fool's errand to seasoned political analysts who largely subscribe to the idea of dog-eat-dog campaign debauchery, but I believe it's a good thing.
In the haze of Trump and Clinton, big names with big mouths, a quiet threat emerges in Sanders. I think it's because he talks like a person, not a robot, and isn't actually a national punchline. Senator Bernie Sanders is a renegade of sorts, running a clean campaign so far. He's avoiding personal attacks, smear commercials and is focusing soely on the issues.
Could he become president? Is the American political machine on the verge of a new era where people zero in on what America wants, rather than lining its own pockets?
Sanders seems to think so. In this interview he outlines that he is for the American people, and not against anyone, because in order for the government to work like our forefathers wanted...we've got to work together.
Sanders isn't a venomous predator. He may appear, to hardened politicians, as weak or politically inept. But to me...he's an agent of the people. This is something we haven't had as a president since...well..who the hell knows.
What do you think about Sanders' statements about his campaign? Do you think the can keep up the good attitude, focus on the issues and create a new kind of politician?
