Bernie was destined to lose and now he stands no chance of winning the nomination. The best thing he can do for his supporters is become the speaker of the house, claiming the power he was never going to earn through a presidency.
College inaction leads to club chaos and new advisor
Pasadena City College for Bernie (PCCFB), a student-run campus club without official affiliation to the Sanders campaign, has found an advisor halfway through the semester, after the previous advisor’s involvement was rejected by the Office of Student Life (OSL) citing her off-campus sabbatical.
Ageism can stay out of the presidential debate
The idea of how old a candidate should be when running for president became a topic of concern when presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, 78, was sent to the hospital for chest pains. He suffered a heart attack and received two stents to open a blocked artery.

Sanders’ campaign, or as I like to call it, “The Little Revolution That Wasn’t,” was a textbook guide for what not to do when running for the nomination of the Democratic Party.
U.S. should join the rest of the West
In 2008, Democrats nominated the then-Senator Barack Obama as their presidential candidate for the election on the campaign promise of universal healthcare. He would later go on to be elected president, carrying the message that the time for Medicare for all was now.
Sanders’ socialism will suffocate the U.S.

There has never been a more widely accepted lie than the false promises of socialism in the history of the world. The theory of socialism came about during the first French Revolution when monarchs ruled with almost absolute power and the most of the wealth of the country was held by the church and rich aristocrats, who had been deemed tax exempt.
