54. What is the alternative?
The Democrats mount a weak candidate against the most popular politician in the state simply because some people feel that the party should run a candidate. They put energy and money behind the guy who then goes on to get his ass kicked or worse, splits the liberal vote and puts the repuke into office.

Wouldn't it be better to put that money and energy where it would count?

Supporting Sanders makes sense. Third parties endorse major party candidates all the time. Why shouldn't a major party support a third party candidate provided there's some political compatability and clearly there is compatability with Sanders.

Personally I'd like to see more of this.
