Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said Hillary Clinton is not the Democratic candidate to lead the political revolution he envisions sweeping millions more people into the political process.
In an interview with Time magazine published Wednesday, Sanders said he would make a better president that the former secretary of State.
“I don’t know what her political future is, whether she’s going to run,” he said, adding that he liked her and considered her to be intelligent.
“I don’t know what she’s going to say. But I think, you know, if you talk about the need for a political revolution in America, I think it’s fair to say that Secretary Clinton probably will not be one of the more active people.”
He’ll be seeing quite a revolution at the ballot box in November, but that’s only becasue of the vil Koch brothers.
Sanders has made similar statements before and has even floated the idea that he could run for president if another liberal candidate does not step up.
But in past interviews, even he has admitted the odds of that happening are about 1 percent.
Sanders also took aim at a familiar punching bag for Democrats, the Koch brothers and unlimited political spending.
“So you have a situation now where one could argue that the Koch brothers and Sheldon Adelson and the other billionaires now—as a result of this disastrous Citizens United decision—now have more political influence than either the Democratic or Republican Party,” he said.
Well, he’s right if you count the 59th largest political contributors as having the greatest influence.
