Bernie Sanders is a registered independent senator from Vermont. That's right — he's refreshingly neither Democrat nor Republican. He's also a socialist. Yes, the true definition of that word. The last time a socialist ran for president was over 100 years ago, when Eugene V. Debs did so, winning 6% of the popular vote. Even the very idea of the third-party candidate is so foreign to American politics, this could get ... interesting.
What might a third-party candidate talk about? Hmmm ... things like this?
(Yes, Teddy was a Republican, but Bernie's staff posted this on his wall recently, and it echoes what folks like Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders have been talking about for a long time ... and traditional politicians from both parties refuse to mention.)
