28. Bernie Sanders on the Mark

11 Oct

The best political interview I have heard recently, is Bernie Sanders appearance (Oct 11, 2015) on Meet the Press. He made real and intelligent answers to the questions, rather than the typical avoidant “speech”.  He has a long history of supporting legislation that advances the economic goals of the American non-rich. His arguments are clear and sound — and reflect the views of most Americans. The long history of consistent viewpoints proves his sincerity.

He would be a shoe-in for the nomination if he looked a little more “presidential”, and was a little younger. I think all of the major Democratic contenders would make good presidents. But maybe a relative newcomer like O’Malley would be more likely elected, because he has the right “look” and voice. When Sanders became a candidate, I thought he would be popular, but could not be elected. But given the polling, perhaps he has a chance. If actually elected he might be more likely to succeed in his “progressive” agenda; than the others. I was wrong before: I instantly liked Obama, but at first thought he could never achieve the office.

    He’s the one who’s “telling it like it is.” Period.
