It took the excitement generated by the political campaign of a self-described socialist, Bernie Sanders, to put into stark relief the extent to which the United States political system fails to reflect and respond to the aspirations of most Americans.

The presidency is not a corporate CEOship where authority is checked only by the board and internal political foes. However this all plays out, I admire Carly for her tenacity; as she has demonstrated great balls. We just have to collectively decide if they belong in the White House.

Every day a variation of this quote comes from Bernie Sanders' upstart presidential campaign. The trouble is, Bernie Sanders didn't say it. John Edwards did -- in his failed 2008 presidential bid. And there are some important lessons for the Sanders Campaign to heed from that race.

Rev. Al Sharpton

I can cite facts and figures all day long depicting the disparity in which different communities are policed, who gets stopped, who gets frisked, who gets arrested, who can afford an attorney and what actual crime rates are broken down by various categories including race and ethnicity. Bottom line is, our criminal justice system is unbalanced, broken and in need of immediate repair.

David Paul

When the Puerto Rico debt crisis burst into the news, Puerto Rico Governor Alejandro García Padilla pronounced that the Commonwealth's debt crisis "is not about politics."

Unlike Donald's politics of fear that appeals to our worst instinct, many New Yorkers see their undocumented neighbors as friends and family contributing to the state as opposed to an invading army of rapists.

Truth: Millennials don't vote in off-year elections. Conversely, in momentous elections -- like in 2008 -- get-out-the-vote campaigns aimed at youth voters are extremely effective. Which leads me to one question: how do we get my generation to turn out in local and off-year elections?

Generation Y and Millennials seem to have decided that the problem with modern politics is our leaders do not inspire us. It's not Hillary Clinton's job to illicit a warm inner glow in me every time she opens her mouth. It is clear liberal romantics are unmoved. What is less clear is why that matters?
