Another black eye for the Democratic Party as Bernie Sanders announces a huge change. As the Democratic National Convention is in full swing former candiate Bernie Sanders has confirmed to reporters that he will return to the United States Senate as an Independent. The Senator from Vermont has held the office since January 3, 2007.
OK. He wasn’t a Democrat before he ran for president. He only became a Democrat because he figured it was his best chance at winning. Third parties don’t have a good track record, and the dems are closer to socialists than anyone, so it was a logical choice. This isn’t really a black eye for the dems. Being that close to socialism should be.
