While I’d love to think that Bernie’s campaign is disrupting corporate influence in the political process, let me remind you that he’s not favored to win another upcoming primary, save Vermont. What began as a flaming beacon of hope for independents and progressives will soon simmer into a bad case of #HeartBern because, well, America just can’t digest him. The real race to watch is the one with best chance of extravagant political theater, which is of course, the upcoming Hillary/Trump media epoch. How will Independents (43% according to Gallup) and additional disenfranchised citizens respond to being eclipsed by presidential politics once again? I don’t know, but buckle up boys and girls, things are just getting started.
