Maybe We’ll Have a Trump-Sanders Unity Ticket in 2016?


Kathleen Hennessey of the LA Times on what Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders have in common:

Both Trump, the real estate tycoon, and Sanders, the independent senator from Vermont, are tapping into anti-establishment, pro-outsider sentiment that is emerging as a potent force early in the campaign cycle. Years of dissatisfaction with Washington leaders, along with a thirst for authenticity in politics, is leading voters to at least contemplate something different this year — dramatically different.

I guess I’m going to have to keep count of how many reporters write this exact same story. At least there’s no mention in this one of the evergreen voter “anger” that we hear about every four years. I’ll take my victories where I can get them.
