Mister Sanders, Send Us A Dream...

I don't get Bernie. He's making the hearts of many palpati...flutter...with excitement concerning his campaign.
The point that he is an alternative to Hillary Clinton has been driven into the ground, the cold hard ground of New Hampshire. But it's true.
I've gotten the past few elections AND the Superbowl wrong, but here's my uneducated guesswork concerning this alleged 'race'.
If you own a vehicle, eventually you have to buy tires. So you go to the tire store.
The cheapest ones on the sale floor are brutally UGLY. They aren't actually for sale-their ugliness makes the more expensive tires look like a more viable option. You leave feeling smarter, having made a wise decision.
I think that the Clintons and the DNC "drafted" Bernie to be the ugly tire candidate of 2016.
Next to Socialist nutty not Ned Sanders, Hillary looks downright moderate. Like the more viable option.
Call it Campaign Karma-Hillary is so unlikable that the ugly tire candidate has become 'viable'!
Dem voters feel smarter, as if they have made a wise decision.
Bernie can Win!
In the Democrat ranks.
Running against Hillary. But:
Independents will not swoon at Bernie's call for REVOLUTION.
Some might note that he's been calling for that revolution since before they were born-eventually you have to throw in the towel and admit that it just won't happen. No matter how hard you clap for Tink. 
Some wiser that I have suggested that Trump will win over the "Obama voters". I don't know about that, but I do think that he has a better chance of winning than Hillary or Bernie.
See you down the road.

I have resisted the political, but this is fun.
If the Clinton campaign survives to the Convention...naw.
I think Holy Joe Biden is about to swoop in. Unless the Clinton check clears.
