Bernie has ignited the political process!
More than five things occurred to Bernie Sanders the moment he announced his candidacy for the democratic nomination for US president. People began to organize in stunning numbers. I was at a protest against the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) at Nike headquarters when a strange woman came up to me and asked me if I was from the neighborhood. She was one of three people from that neighborhood organizing their middle class neighbors for two things; Bernie Sanders, and any candidate other than Ron Wyden for the US senate. None of them had done political work before.
Wyden is up for reelection next year. I met two other middle class house wives doing the same thing within the span of one hour. I made it a point to introduce them to each other. There’s a swelling grass roots against supporters of the TPP, and for Bernie.
