1. A long, strong marriage, w/ mutual respect & TRUST

Good, in-depth piece showing the quality of their long marriage. I'm glad for Bernie that he has a supportive spouse who is by his side as he fights the good fight for us. Liked all the pictures of her & Bernie at different times in their marriage. Caption on 1 photo: Jane Sanders serves as an advisor to her husband, presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders.

When asked about her husband's ability to compete against the fundraising power of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Democratic front-funner, Sanders seemed undaunted.
"We've been outspent many, many, many times," she said.

She noted that her husband's campaign has taken off faster than either of them expected.
She said one marked moment occurred as they arrived in Minneapolis with field director, Phil Fiermonte. She described seeing blocks of people lined up to enter the campaign event on May 31, less than a week after the campaign kicked off.

She recalled her husband saying, "Whoa! Are we competing with something Phil?" and Fiermonte's reply, "I think that's you, Bern."

An estimated 5,000 people showed up for that event, a number that would be dwarfed by the turnout for his latest West Coast rallies.
