Bernie's platform isn't just good policy, it is hands down superior to every other presidential candidate's platform. Bernie supporters are not naïve. The point of electing Bernie is not to get anything done. It is to stop all the corrupt, corporate, political forces from getting anything more done.

This Election Needs Michael Bloomberg (Like a Fish Needs a Bicycle)

Robert Kuttner | Posted 01.24.2016 | Politics
Robert Kuttner

As you have doubtless read or seen, Michael Bloomberg, former Mayor of New York, has put out the word that his minions are testing the waters for an independent candidacy. Bloomberg is supposedly the sensible moderate that the county needs, the one that political polarization has kept from the ballot of either party. But that's not an obstacle that a few billion dollars from the candidate's own fortune can't fix. Here's the problem. Bloomberg is center-right on economics and finance, and liberal on social issues and gun control. There is no clamoring for such a combination, except among fellow rich people. But if the Republicans nominate Trump, Bloomberg might capture a good slice of the moderate suburban vote -- even more so if Democrats choose Sanders. Don't we need just such a moderate? No, we don't.

Trump and Palin: Mad as Hell and Not Going to Take It Anymore

Richard Brodsky | Posted 01.21.2016 | Politics

For months, the pundits have gotten it wrong by focusing on the candidates. It is the electorate, the Republican primary voters, who are driving this train. Trump is leading an existing movement, not creating one.
