K. of Washington State writes in to Irregular Times with a request:
Could you possibly offer a Robert Reich in 2016 bumper sticker?
(It’s one way of encouraging him to run. We need a good candidate with a major party affiliation. Independents like Bernard Sanders do not get elected, and he’s too old.)
Fact check: Senator Bernie Sanders is 72, but Robert Reich is just 5 years younger at the age of 67. Does Robert Reich’s “Just for Men” look, compared to Sanders’ white mop-top, really make the age difference seem so much wider? Can we allow a president with white hair? Must there be speckles?
More seriously, it’s becoming increasingly clear that Bernie Sanders will be running for President, and he’s always been outside the Democratic Party. But what do you think of someone like Robert Reich running from within the Democratic Party? Could you support a Robert Reich run?
