72. I'm waiting on Bernie Sanders, since so many here support him over the Democrat.
Don't get me wrong, I love Bernie and wish there were more like him in the Senate. But the bottom line is that there isn't.

And the irony here is: Bernie Sanders has consistently supported Barack Obama. That fact should make heads explode here.
