    I did hear some really awesome things about Sanders today, in a Michael Moore interview on MSNBC of all places. He talked about Bernie as the person he's known for like 3 decades and it really did a lot to show me that he does have that softer, personal, caring side to him. Honestly angry grandpa and his one grandkid that's a bully (but only one of many grandkids) is the side I'm used to seeing and it was actually very comforting to know that he's not the campaign Sanders all the time.

    A hypothetical thought exercise I keep coming back to is - say Sanders didn't win the nomination. Is there a VP pick that would 100% say to folks "this is the silver medal because Sanders personally hand-picked this running mate to be a clear signal to his supporters that he 100% is on board for this candidacy." ? Like, a VP candidate that would allow Sanders to "sell" the Dem ticket to those noisiest pockets of his base?

    Additionally, what happens if a brokered convention puts Sanders, Warren, Klobuchar, Buttigieg, and Biden in a room trying to sort it out? and what if that conference results in Sanders running with Amy or Pete as his running mate? (My logic here is that Warren is too close to him politically to be a compromise pick, and Biden would be 'two old white dudes' so they don't wanna do that).

    Would Buttigieg as a running mate be seen as Sanders compromising his values or selling out too much?

    buttigieg would be an incredible compromise

    in a world where the republicans are not white supremacy + homophobia, buttigieg would be a republican, he does not represent sanders' values in any way

    broadly speaking people like to speculate about other presidential candidates becoming VP picks but it's more common to see a VP pick from elsewhere in the party, or at least someone from much earlier in the campaign cycle

    As a Sanders supporter in NW Indiana let me tell you that the little rat fuck who fired South Bend's first black chief of police and did everything he could to cover up the department's racism can run for VP of the fucking Phantom Zone.

    an alarming amount of people who like Talking About Politics are addicted to decorum, calm rationality is fetishized as a sign of intellect while emotions are viewed as for a stupid person - it's part of why they're sexist, too! because women are viewed as Emotional rather than Smart

    everyone here remembers the adoring op-eds who sucked off richard spencer because he was dressed like an intellectual and politely said that we should create a white ethnostate. the addiction to decorum allows ideas like that to thrive.

    Pete's an empty suit.

    The moment the health insurance companies gave him a bunch of money he became very concerned with M4A 'taking away real American's choices' or however the hell he put it.

    No trust me I 100% get that completely, it's just that I've really only ever seen Campaign-mode Sanders and so it was reassuring to be able to remember that he is a normal human and has other sides to him.

    Because angry forever is not good!

    But like, outside of the cable media narrative campaign Sanders isn't just angry. He's also that dude who rushes off stage to help people who faint, who is constantly personally consoling people struggling to get by, who birds love for some reason known only to him and Disney Princesses.

    I have lots of sympathy for Warren voters because she is definitely getting a raw deal in coverage

    But I think Nevada has been a deal breaker for me even if I wasn't already gonna vote for bernard

    Vote Bernie cause hes the only candidate even close to leftist enough to make positive changes and literally all the others will only do Obama style half measures while continuing to throw us under the bus.

    If you support Bloomber please kindly go jump off a cliff.

    Buttigieg is a cheating rat fuck suckin down corporate cash and trying to use his identity as a tool to guilt LGBT+ folk into supporting him.

    Is Bernie Sanders considered a pizza or an open faced panini?

    I'm still excited because I'm in Iowa and caucused for Bernie and next month I'm one of the delegates that goes to the next level of caucuses. I get to be politically involved wooo go me. Also I enjoyed reading the thread other than people being mean to each other so I'm glad this is back because it's how I keep up with politics since I'm a terrible millennial.
