Bernie Sanders: "I Am Prepared to Run for President of the United States"
Mar 10, 2014 — Sanders told the Nation magazine he is prepared to run. When asked about running inside or outside the Democratic Party, he said this:
"I haven’t reached a conclusion on that yet. Clearly, there are things to be said on both sides of that important question. Number one: there is today more and more alienation from the Republican and Democratic parties than we have seen in the modern history of this country. In fact, most people now consider themselves to be 'independent,' whatever that may mean. And the number of people who identify as Democrats or Republicans is at a historically low point. In that sense, running outside the two-party system can be a positive politically."
But he also addressed the counter-position of running inside the Democratic Party, and that can be read at the URL:
