Bernie Saunders is an interesting guy. I even met him once briefly a long time ago.

Not yet decided who gets my vote or support, if I bother to vote or give support at all, but I like when campaigns give opportunities for some different perspectives to be heard.

Bernie is the Ron Paul of the Dems. He won't win the nomination, but he'll get a loyal following.

It's one thing to talk about a left wing agenda, it's quite another to convince independents to vote for it.Demographically they are the kingmakers.Actually his candidacy bodes well for the GOP because he's bound to siphon some votes from the Democratic candidate.

Bernie Sanders is too weak to win. As mentioned by someone above, he's the democrat version of Ron Paul. That means he has some good ideas and his followers are very loyal, but he's too passive when fighting against a corrupt establishment. The only thing going for him right now is the fact that a lot of democrats don't trust Hillary.

He won't even come close to winning the nomination.

At least his presence energizes the more progressive wing of the Democratic party, and might even be enough to help lure some Green Party or left-leaning independents to pay attention to the Democratic primaries; which would be an opportunity for Hilary to get her message to some ears that have long been shut to her.

Well it is never to early to build a movement that is how they work you build them. If you think he doesn't have a change then you have bought the bullshit. No really Hillary isn't a sure thing just like last time, which by the way if everyone remembers Hillary is going to win in 2008 no one can beat her. So where is President Clinton now he is running his charity we don't have two of them. So yeah it isn't a sure thing especially if Bernie can get the grassroots out and build a better campaign on the ground for the primaries which is what he is doing. So get out there and caucus for the man or vote for him if you don't have caucuses.

As for those of you that believe he is a the Rand or Ron Paul of the left you are sadly mistaken. While the Paul's ideas are for the most part bunk yes they have a couple of ideas that would be good for the country the rest are crap when it comes to economics. Take a damn course on it learn how your government works and how it is needed to actually makes an economy work. For crying out loud it isn't hard to understand contracts don't work unless you have a third party enforcing them.

If you actually look at Bernie history you will see he was already there for most of the good things. Yes he has some dark spots when it comes to gun control but I'm willing to actually look at the whole picture and the context of what was being done. But he has been right on health-care, education, criminal justice, equal right, economics, jobs, business, military power, and privacy for longer then any of the other candidates.

As for feeling the Bern yeah man I feel the Bern. Now if he wins and I'm not saying it is going to be an easy fight but if we want real change we have to fight for it we can' let our politicians have a free leash we have to fight for him and then hold him accountable. So who is willing to fight for the Democratic Socialist? No really support him if you like him that is how the system works you want to see it work be part of it don't sit here and do nothing.

Passive snicker really sigh some people don't understand that just because it is liberal doesn't mean we are passive little cowards nope we pick our fights and we we bring it we bring it for bear.
