Hello, I am typical midwestern American coybow, yee haa!

Who do you think would make Bernie's short list of VP picks? The most "obvious" might someone like AOC. But do you think her relative inexperience might hinder their chances on the national stage? To be honest it's tough (even if he would pick her). She might fire up young people to get out to vote, but at the same time, Bernie/AOC might be the Republican doomsday ticket that gets every conservative out to vote… some might even rise from their graves to do it.

Of course we have a long ways to go, IE the dem primaries, but it's something I'm curious about.

This morning on Meet The Press, DNC chairman Tom Perez said the comments made by Ilhan Omar were “wrong and divisive”. Well if it’s wrong to think that PACs have to much power in shaping our political agenda, than I don’t want to be right.

When do you think Bernie is gonna announce?

So we seen many articles in the past 2 weeks or so saying Bernie is getting ready to announce his campaign. I think timing for Bernie is important to get as much media attention as possible. Obviously Bernie is a lot more well know now than in 2015 when he first announced. But we the growing field being strategic is important. I think since Liz Warren just officially announced yesterday and most of the heavy contenders already officially announced Bernie might now have a open field to give it a go.

Is Bernie waiting for Biden? I highly think so.

I got to thinking today. Sanders might be waiting to see if Biden, a popular centrist, runs.

Why?

If Biden does not run. It's basically a progressive run off. Bernie, being the favorite against all of them, would have a high chance of winning. Even a Warren win would be great to his cause.

BUT!!

If Biden runs (who is polling high), the progressive vote is split between him and Warren (even some for kamala). DECREASING the chances of a big progressive win. Bernie having a second primary run LOSS against another centrist would be devastating to his cause. It would be seen that the voters as rejecting a progressive agenda. He would instead opt to back Warren and progressive policies.

You have to understand. A Biden and Bernie run, with Bernie or Warren losing to a centrist Biden, would send a bad message to democrats that voters don't want progressive agenda. He would not risk erasing any progress he's made since 2016

Anyone else think Trump has always gone light on Bernie?

Other than occasionally calling him "crazy Bernie", he's never really been specific on his attacks, or given him much attention. I understand a lot of this is because he's never been directly up against him as a candidate, but as much as Bernie calls him out on an almost daily basis, I'm surprised he hasn't attacked him more. Do you think it's because Bernie is one of the few who he's genuinely afraid of going against politically?

If she was 35, do you think Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would try to run for president in 2020 or maybe be Bernie’s VP?

I like her and I know she's very popular, but popular enough to become president? And if she didn't run, could she become Bernie's vice president? It'd be interesting to see that
