The owners of this country want you to see Bernie Sanders as a hopeless, crotchety loon. As Donald Trump without the combover. And while it would be a "uuuuuuge" mistake to consider Bernie Sanders the answer to any prayer, Bernie knows one big thing.

It's hard not to #FeelTheBern these days, that is the Bernie Sanders energy that is storming the nation. Just last week Sanders had the largest turnout of any presidential candidate so far in this primary race with nearly 10,000 people attending his speech in Madison, Wis.

The Times Doctrine on Bernie Sanders

David Bromwich | Posted 07.05.2015 | Politics
David Bromwich

The attitude that Lyall adopts toward Senator Sanders is, instead, mildly and cheerfully disparaging -- affectionate, but at the proper distance of condescension; ironically agreeable, as you are allowed to be in dealing with a second cousin or an eccentric uncle who is a bit of a blowhard. Hers is not the first such article to appear on Sanders in the Times.

Why Hillary Clinton Must Back a LGBT Full Civil Rights Law for Her Own Sake

Michelangelo Signorile | Posted 06.06.2015 | Gay Voices
Michelangelo Signorile

At a time when Clinton's Democratic rivals are exploiting a dip in her approval numbers, Clinton should be going on the offensive as the candidate fighting for full equality during a civil rights movement of our time. That would not only energize progressives in the party, it would speak to younger voters, including independents.

So far there haven't been very many progressives willing to stick their head out there and say they're willing to take on Team Hillary. I understand that the Washington media is saying that she can't be beat. That's hilarious. Isn't that exactly what they said in 2008?

Run, Zephyr, Run -- Teachout Should Challenge Hillary for the Democratic Presidential Nomination

Miles Mogulescu | Posted 11.11.2014 | Politics
Miles Mogulescu

Teachout might not be able to defeat Clinton, Inc. -- with its bevy of rich and well-connected donors -- for the nomination, but my bet is that she could collect a slew of delegates and have a big impact on the national debate. The Democratic wing of the Democratic Party deserves a strong warrior in the primaries, not just a Clinton coronation.
