Bernie and Goliath

Written by Rob Rogers on .

Senator Bernie Sanders, a progressive democrat from Vermont, is jumping into the presidential race against Hillary. He has little or no chance of winning, but I love his politics and he'll be a breath of fresh air in a campaign dominated by big money and wealthy corporate donors.
