Derek Cressman

Lessig has said he would run as a Democrat and would choose someone like Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders as his vice president. That person would take over and run the country once the reform agenda had passed. And that is precisely why his plan won't work, even if he miraculously was elected.
