Why Bernie Sanders Will Become the Democratic Nominee and Defeat Any Republican in 2016

Why the Planet Is Happy That Bernie Sanders Is Running for President

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.
