Bernie Sanders, the man America has been clamoring for.
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) won’t rule out a presidential bid if no other liberal candidate steps up to run — but suggested Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) could fit the bill.
Sanders tells the Burlington Free Press that he’d prefer not to run, but if no one else steps up to challenge the “establishment politicians” in 2016 he may feel compelled to.
“We need a sense of urgency and I don’t see that in establishment politicians and I don’t see that in the establishment media,” he says. “There are people in this world who, ever since they were 12 years of age, they decided they wanted to be president of the United States. That is honestly not me… Anyone who really, really wants to be president is slightly crazy because this is an unbelievably difficult job given the crises that this country faces today.”
He indicated Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) might earn his backing if she ran, however.
“I like Elizabeth Warren very much,” he said. “Her beauty is that she is very smart. She speaks English. She can explain economics in a way that everybody can understand.”
She speaks English? Nominate that woman now!
