It's tough to represent the hopes of Americans hurt by entrenched political interests when you've taken money from Donald Trump, or you've already run a campaign ad in 2008 that utilizes a "racist sub-message." For these reasons, Clinton's problem with white liberals, and Sanders's eventual appeal to minority voters, will enable Vermont's Senator to win the Democratic nomination.

A precedent exists of Clinton's name recognition and political prowess giving way to a relative unknown who electrifies the masses; Sanders is filling arenas for a reason, and it's a similar reason to what made Obama so unique in 2008.

Bernie Sanders doesn't need the money of billionaires, since most likely they'd be 'wasting' money on donating to his campaign. After all, Sanders is quoted in the Washington Post as saying things that no other politician in America would dare utter during an election cycle.

Future generations will look back at this election and either say that we defeated Citizens United by electing a man serious about defeating the Court's decision, or succumbed to the grip of corporations by voting against the interests of our democracy.

How many time have you heard the phrase, "I like Bernie Sanders, but he can't win," uttered by people who identify themselves as progressives?

If Democrats simply vote based on their value system, Bernie Sanders can easily win the presidency. If they nominate Hillary Clinton out of despair, thinking this is still 1999, then email scandals and an Iraq War vote could mitigate any advantages a Democratic challenger has over Jeb Bush or another Republican.

He doesn't go on and on about the woods and the rivers -- he goes on and on about working class Vermonters who can't afford health care and heating oil. His issue is inequality and unfairness, and it has been from the start. And for those of us who do work mostly on the environment, that's just the kind of ally we need.
