Bernie Is More Credible and Electable Than Hillary

Bernie's platform isn't just good policy, it is hands down superior to every other presidential candidate's platform. Bernie supporters are not na´ve. The point of electing Bernie is not to get anything done. It is to stop all the corrupt, corporate, political forces from getting anything more done.


Now that the media is finally saying it's time to start taking Bernie Sanders seriously, we've seen a flurry of hit pieces from Paul Krugman, Ezra Klein, Paul Starr, and other supposed liberal/progressive champions arguing, ironically, that we still shouldn't take Bernie seriously.

They say: "Americans will never elect a socialist" -- "Bernie won't get anything done" -- "Bernie's plans are all puppies and rainbows."

Allow me to debunk this American mythology that liberal and progressive ideas aren't viable in the U.S.: Franklin and Theodore Roosevelt.
