United States Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont

By Thom Hartmann

Ann Coulter knows who she wants to be the Democratic nominee for president, and who that person is, well, it may surprise you.

She wants Hillary Clinton to be the nominee, and thinks that if Bernie gets the nod, he’ll beat whoever the Republicans come up with to run against him.

You won’t hear me say this often, but Ann Coulter is right.

If Bernie Sanders ends up being the Democratic nominee for president, and it looks more and more every day like he will be, his Republican opponent is going to have a very hard time beating him.

And that’s because of all the Democratic candidates running, Bernie Sanders has the best chance of capturing Republican votes.

  1. I have this unsettling feeling that Wallstreet will go after Bernie and the GOP will go after Hilary. It would be wonderful if they both ended up in the White House.

    Personally, the more I find out about Bernie, the more I like him as the next American President.

    I am so tired of the GOP’s lack of ethics, I do not want to ever see them take control of the WH ever again.

    1. Hello, Gen. You know it. The Kochs, Sheldon and the Wall Street gang will put unprecedented amounts of money into this next presidential election. But they have a small problem that no amount of money can fix: they don’t have any serious, electable candidates.

      Like Roosevelt before him, Sanders welcomes, indeed, embraces their hostility toward him and what he represents. Because he is the only candidate who is prepared to address directly those economic issues of greatest concern to the majority of Americans. His views are those of the majority of American voters. That’s a big problem for his opponents, who by and large represent the status quo.

      1. I never thought about Sanders like a 2016 Roosevelt but it does fit. Just like your answer – this is a win – win for Bernie. I am ready for the bern:-)
