Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders vowed Tuesday to wrestle back America from the hands of billionaires, formally launching a populist grass roots White House bid that threatens to tug Democratic frontrunner Hillary Clinton towards the liberal left.


The Senator has every right to run on his convictions, and certainly the facts that he’s stating are true. Inequality is at it’s highest and something is very wrong with that.

I’m happy to see him get in the race. His move as an Independent to get into the Democratic Party was smart. It’s going to get him into the headlines where otherwise he would have been ignored.

He’s becoming the people’s candidate. He’s appealing to the middle class and below. Which isn’t going to make him popular with the upper class and the media. But he’s fighting for the Average Joe and we'll have to wait and see if they respond.
