fucking day since Watergate. I have met every living president except Jimmy Carter, as well as the likes of Ann Richards and I had dinner with Bill and Hillary before most anyone outside of Arkansas ever heard of them. I have learned from DU a lot longer than I have been a member. I have watched nearly all of Bernie Sanders career. I admire Bernie Sanders and always did. He is not a Democrat, by the way.

Bernie Sanders being fed up is going to be about as effective in getting anything done with regard to SCOTUS' decision on McCutcheon as it was for John Conyers "strongly-worder letters" to all manner of shrubco henchmen, including darth cheney and antonio gonzalez. Yes, he called for GOTV. No duh.

I watch the hearings. I watch the Congress. I can name nearly every member of the Senate and many Reps and where they're from nearly as easy as I can name the drivers in Nascar and their sponsors.

Haha, you thinking you know how informed I am. And, yet, I would be willing to concede that maybe you have an experience or two over me. But don't go thinking you can judge my experience by one fecetious comment given in the same spirit that criticisms of Conyers' SWLs were during the bush criminal term and think you can declare me clueless or ignorant. I've been around the block a time or two, sister.

Considering his age and lack of a national organization, I will be surprised if he runs. pnwmom Apr 2014 #23
