      Sanders would have to petition in all 50 states, collect millions of signatures, jump through hoops of fire to make a credible run.
      I think he's smarter than that.

      If I ran this circus, things would be DIFFERENT!

      took advantage of whatever fringe party was already on the ballot and ran from various parties, such as the Greens. I don't think Sanders would do that.

      He is an egotistical traitor of the worst kind, and his supporters are just as bad.  I put the blame of every bad Supreme Court decision directly on his shoulders; Citizens United, gutting the Medicaid expansion, Hobby Lobby, giving police absolute immunity, the potential end of public unions following the decision in Harris v Illinois, etc.

      If you refuse to vote for the Democrat in a Presidential general election, then I hold you personally responsible for any right-wing Supreme Court decision.
