    He seems the only trustworthy, honest politician in the ring so far. He'll have trouble selling Scandanavian Socialism, but it's an equitable system that still rewards those who work hard and smart. They just have to share a bit of that for the public good. Too many people in this country go to bed homeless. While I'll readily admit that for many it's their damned faults, there are still too many who fall through the nets. Bernie is principled. I Can't say that about any other candidate.

    I LOVE Bernie Sanders, but alas, he is unelectable, because he looks like a mad scientist!

    Bernie Sanders is hands down the best Presidential candidate.

    I just don't think that he can beat Hillary.

    I'll vote for Hillary or Bernie. I haven't decided which.

    The great thing about Bernie is that he will force Hillary to move to the left In some areas. For me, that is a good thing.

    The Republican clown bus will force the Republican candidates to move so far to the right that they will become unelectable in the general election. They have so many candidates that a reasonable candidate will have to become very shrill to be heard.

    This question, in particular, is KILLING them. They can't afford to answer it at all.

    Bernie is someone, like Warren, who appeals to the left base, but who is too off center to get a nomination. His debates with Hillary will be worth watching, while the GOP debates will be the only comedy show on TV I'll watch.
