4. I would like that too, although Elizabeth Warren would be my first choice to run against Hillary.

I think that Bernie would make a great president.

As a candidate, he would bring out the pettiness in Hillary, and that just might save the country.

He has a strong, attractive agenda and is a wonderful, steady, calm thinker. If Elizabeth Warren does not throw her hat in, I hope Bernie Sanders runs. I am unaware of any scandals that could hurt him or be thrown in his face in a campaign.

Scandals and Hillary are a different question. It isn't that the Republican rumors and nastiness is true, but that she has never been able to disprove a lot of nonsensical charges thrown her way. That is unfair, but that is the way it is.

The biggest drawback with Hillary is, however, that she shows her anger in an unattractive way. That is the problem with most of the potential Republican candidates also. Chris Christie is the worst example of that. There is none of the Obama cool. People like the Obama cool. I like it too.

Sanders is closer to having Obama's cool, his steadiness when under attack or when meeting stress than any of the other potential candidates.
