Will Bernie Run as an Independent


People are wondering if Bernie would go independent. I'm sure his folks would LOVE that, but sadly he's not going there.

Bernie confirmed his stance with Chuck Todd on Monday. He said:
"To run as an independent, you need — you could be a billionaire," he said. "If you're a billionaire, you can do that. I'm not a billionaire. So the structure of American politics today is such that I thought the right ethic was to run within the Democratic Party."
He's right, it comes down to money and support. Without the Dems' support, Bernie would toast. He doesn't have a Super PAC, let alone visible members in Congress out here fighting for him. Using the Dems is his best bet, and so far, it's not paying off.
