    become independents and along with Sanders - they'd wrest some power away from the old guard cabal.

        become indies and pull Sanders out with them to form a progressive caucus and all of a sudden the Senate Centrist Dems don't have the power they thought they had.  They think they can cut all the deals and leave the outer wings of the caucus to give nice speeches but vote the party line.  

        (no I don't think it will happen)
