Catch Bernie’s Campaign Kick-Off on C-SPAN

Watch Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign kick-off on C-SPAN. During the intro, Ben Cohen said a few words…

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the long-shot candidate… Vermont’s adopted son, the next President of the United States, Sen. Bernie Sanders! ~ Ben Cohen

When Bernie came to the podium, he spoke vigorously about a new Agenda for America.

This campaign is about the needs of the American people… Let me give you… a brief outline of an Agenda for America. The agenda begins with job, jobs, jobs […] ~ Sen. Bernie Sanders
