Progressive Sen. Bernie Sanders is readying a potential 2016 presidential primary challenge to Hillary Clinton, claiming that the “same old same old … Clinton type of politics” won’t solve the problems of the nation.
“I am prepared to run for president of the United States. I don’t believe that I am the only person out there who can fight this fight, but I am certainly prepared to look seriously at that race,” he told The Nation’s John Nichols.
Oh…goody. He won’t beat her in the primary, but he might go third party if he loses.
If he peels the Socialist Democrats away from Hillary in the general, she might well finish third.
