Bernie Sanders deserves the Most Impressive Democrat award this week, because he threw his hat in the ring. No, he is not Elizabeth Warren. But, more importantly, he is running to become president, which she is not.
Sanders is not easy, not blow dried and not scripted. But in a populist moment, he is the real deal -- a full throated, unabashed, independent, uncorrupted, straight-talking populist. And that is a big deal.
Anthony "Tony" Podesta began lobbying in late 2013 on behalf of a company co-owned by ExxonMobil and Qatar Petroleum aiming to export liquefied natural gas (LNG) to the global market.
How might Sanders, a self-described democratic socialist, reflect on Hillary's Baltimore-soaked bravado?
Starts out with images from Congress finalizing the Iraq War Vote in 2002. Sound of Hillary saying "Yea."

By demonstrating good listening skills, you are showing another person that you think they matter, that you value their opinion, that you find them interesting, that you adore their pantsuit.
The fact that the Democratic Party's presumptive nominee for president chose the subject of mass incarceration as the focus of her first major policy address since she announced her candidacy is of great significance politically.
Attacks must hurt Hillary personally when her record in public life has never been shown to be anything but honest. She has made a career of speaking out for those who can't speak out for themselves and fighting for equality and the civil and human rights of those who have been oppressed.
He is a true progressive with an economic view that is considerably to the left of likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton. Sen. Sanders will undoubtedly discuss important economic issues from a left-wing angle throughout his campaign.

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?
