Sorry, I believe Bernie's time is long past.

I sure would like Liz Warren to run, but she has clearly stated many times she has no desire to run.

Fresh new blood, is what is needed - maybe another women; Ladda Tammy Duckworth(Senator Duckworth is not a natural born citizen, darn) or Gabrielle Giffords.

edited to reflect Sen. Duckworth's Presidential viability - born in Thailand to an American father, Thai-Chinese mother

Bernie never had a chance, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz made sure of it because it was "Hillary's turn." All of the Election 2016 polls show that Bernie would have beaten Trump. But the DNC stuck with a woman with a very unlikability factor who did win 3m more votes, but lost the electoral college because she decided not to campaign in the three states because "she had the election in the bag."

Go figure. coffee

Too old and too damaged, and he STILL refuses to believe that he has to join the Democratic Party in order to get party support.
I LOVE Bernie Sanders, but his window has passed, and he made those TWO VERY GRAVE mistakes which cost him his chances.

We need a young, good looking Bernie Sanders. Someone like that Canadian fellow Trudeau.
But I suppose that's too much to ask for.

But it's exactly what to ask for.

I keep telling you all: George Clooney

He's still pretty young as Presidents go, good looking, women LOVE him, men want to BE him, and he's progressive. (And though the list of hot women and stars he has dated is as long as your arm, he now has a smokin' hot wife, who he actually loves since she gave birth to twins on June 6.)

He's got charisma, talent, very good popularity from all his movie roles and ER. Old folks can identify because he's Rosemary Clooney's nephew. And now he even has Presidential hair!

Seriously though, he has way more humanitarian and business success history than Trump:

Quote:
In 2009, Clooney was included in Time's annual Time 100 as one of the "Most Influential People in the World".[4] He is also noted for his political and economic activism, and has served as one of the United Nations Messengers of Peace since January 31, 2008.[5][6][7] His humanitarian work includes his advocacy of finding a resolution for the Darfur conflict, raising funds for the 2010 Haiti earthquake, Armenian Genocide recognition, 2004 tsunami, and 9/11 victims, and creating documentaries such as Sand and Sorrow to raise awareness about international crises. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.[8]
In 2013, Clooney co-founded Casamigos Tequila with Rande Gerber and Michael Meldman.[9] In June 2017, it was sold to Diageo for $700 million, with an additional $300 million possible depending on the company's performance over the next ten years.
