A Corkboard Candidacy
U.S. Senator Bernard Sanders is considered a possible candidate for President in 2016, but months have passed since his name was proposed by liberal activists, and still we don’t know what Sanders means to do. He hasn’t agreed to run, but he has pointedly refused to say he won’t run, either.
How much support would a Sanders for President campaign enjoy? There are no nationwide polls that address this question, but I came across one important sign of genuine grassroots enthusiasm this afternoon. The individually printed picture of Sanders that you see here, with a hand-written message framing it, was posted just this week in on a corkboard at a neighborhood grocery store in my village.
In a little town of just 1,500 people, there’s at least one other person agitating for a Sanders candidacy. A network of similar people across the country just might get something started. Stay tuned for news on a bulletin board near you.
