  • Sanders could put great pressure on Clinton now by coming to an agreement with Ralph Nader (or Jill Stein, or…?) to run as his vice president, as well as Sanders’ naming of his cabinet, then holding press conferences to introduce them all to Americans. Bernie needs to consider acting upon his own suggestion: “think outside the box”.

    • That would be a great move! And I’m glad you didn’t mention Elizabeth Warren for Bernie’s VP. I still love her, but I think she missed the boat by not endorsing him.

  • What a pity Goodman declined to give Nader this kind of coverage when he was a candidate for president (in 1996, 2000, 2004 and 2008). Nader was also packing stadiums with thousands and thousands of young people but Democracy Now was pretty much silent regarding the phenomenal support he enjoyed. If you can’t turn to alternative media to cover mass grassroots movements, who can you turn to?
