You are not going to find too many people around here that are of the type to be waving a flag of support for one Bernie Sanders. To put it lightly, he’s not exactly our favorite person.
However, as conservatives we are a group of people that like things to be as fair and square as possible so if someone loses against us they have nothing to complain about and if we lose we have nothing to complain about.
The 2016 Democratic nomination process was all decided before one vote was ever cast in one primary. The DNC had decided way at the start of everything that Hillary Clinton was going to be the horse that they backed no matter what people wanted.
Now, I am no Bernie Sanders fan by any means. You won’t see me at any of his speeches and you won’t see me donating any money to the main. However, with all things being completely fair I will admit to the fact that he got given the shaft as far as the DNC goes. By all rights if it was a fair system he would have been the Democratic nominee. Sure, the result would have been the same but the right person would have won the Democratic nomination if you were looking at it objectively.
Now, with people getting dangerously close to deciding their future as far as the 2020 election season goes you have people sitting down and deciding what they are going to do in the upcoming election people like Bernie Sanders are weighing the options.
All anyone can say as far as Bernie goes is that if he thought it was an uphill battle in 2016, he has no idea what he’d be in store for in 2020
From Daily Caller:
Independent Sen. Bernie Sanders revealed on Monday that he will “probably” launch a bid for president if another candidate does not emerge who is more likely to beat President Donald Trump in 2020.
“If there’s somebody else who appears who can, for whatever reason, do a better job than me, I’ll work my ass off to elect him or her,” Sanders said in an interview with New York Magazine. “If it turns out that I am the best candidate to beat Donald Trump, then I will probably run.”
Sanders, who unsuccessfully ran a 2016 presidential campaign as a Democrat, asserted that while he does not particularly desire to hold the position, the ideas he espouses are best for the country.
“I’m not one of those sons of multimillionaires whose parents told them they were going to become president of the United States,” Sanders continued. “I don’t wake up in the morning with any burning desire that I have to be president.”
