You have such tiny vision, Cid.

 

He's healthy as a horse. 

 

George Burns lived to be over 100.

 

As long as he can bellow out his vision for a better America and sign his name - and as long as he chooses a real good running mate for Vice - there's nothing to stop him from being the President in 2020.

 

The people are with him.

 

I realize that you probably can't get used to the idea of a 79 year old President. It's happening.

 

You're saying Sanders will run for the Dem party nomination in 2020 and win it?       Sorry I don't think that will happen.   Not because  Sanders would be too old but because the Dem establishment will do what it takes to ensure that doesn't happen.    I.e. the crooks in the DNC will think up new schemes,  as well as using some of the olds they used in 2016, to ensure Sanders is marginalized.

Bernie Sanders will be 79 in Nov. 2020.  While he has contributions to make, his role is not to be a candidate for president.  It that is what Dark is advocating.

As regards what percentage of the Democratic Party may or may not like Sanders, it is irrelevant as far as winning back the local, state and national offices that the Republicans now have a lock upon.

The Democrats must win over the independent voters.

They may like Bernie (heck I like Bernie), but that is not the issue that faces them.

If you cannot win over the independent voters and perhaps some moderate Republicans, the party will never win control at any level.

As opposed to Trump and most Republicans who get super rich off screwing the little guys, middle class and small businesses out of their money.  And don't forget, we know what Pres. Obama is getting, but Trump and others hide it from us.

 

The Democrats are the ones who have screwed over the little guys, middle class, poor and businesses. They have continuously raised taxes on them, regulated them, and destroyed them for years. Hillary makes Trump look like Honest Abe by comparison.

Obama to be paid $400,000 for Cantor Fitzgerald speech

At the White House Correspondents' Dinner a year ago, President Barack Obama teased Hillary Clinton over her six-figure speeches to Wall Street banks. "If this material goes well, I'll use it at Goldman Sachs next year," he said. "Earn me some serious Tubmans."

Less than 100 days after leaving office, Mr Obama has followed through: accepting a $400,000 speaking fee from Cantor Fitzgerald, the mid-sized investment bank.

On Tuesday a person familiar with the arrangement confirmed that Mr Obama had agreed to appear as the keynote speaker at Cantor's annual healthcare conference in September. The person declined to comment on what the former president might do with his fee, which is nearly twice the $225,000 price commanded by Mrs Clinton during three speeches to Goldman in 2013.

********************************************

Obama has turned out to be just like Hillary and Sanders, getting rich off of speeches and books. I'm sure he will use all the tax loopholes he helped to create too.

Why would anybody buy a book written by a politician?

 

What, they don't get enough lies during regular hours?

I have no idea, but some people apparently do buy books by pols.

Presidents and former presidents do well, but below that they

often end up at the two dollar table. Despite that, they keep

churning them out.
