Nobody owns Bernie Sanders. He has made this very clear. He told the corporations that he does not want their support and advised the 1% to not vote for him because it would be against their own self-interest. The audacity the bravery the honesty!

While I wouldn't mind a female president, that's not Hillary for me. Bernie has the courage, the determination, and the knowledge to be a great president - one that is not owned by big corporations. Be Brave with Bernie!

Thanks Dandelion. I was surprised when Sanders decided to run, because I never expected to see anyone run whose views on so many issues are based on the needs of The People rather than the corporations and banks. The presidency of this country is hardly an enviable job. I don't know how much any president (especially a Socialist one) can get done, considering the toxic, divisive atmosphere in Washington now. Sanders has the correct attitude, as Nader did, of being a public servant. I am cautiously optimistic, after being so badly burned by Obama. Choosing between the lesser of the evils is not a good way for women or other voters to use their hard-won right to vote.

My feeling behind this Judy is that Bernie has a long track record, he has years of where he has stood on many issues; Obama had a short track record.

Also I realize he alone isn't going to be able to do much if Congress doesn't play and there is corporate bought on both sides of the Parties. However, what he CAN do, is stay on message! He is OUR mouthpiece. He can call it as he sees it. He speaks in clear simple language that even those who are not well educated or don't or can't have the time to delve deeply into issues can understand. People do tune into the President in this Nation whether they like him or not, people do listen when a President speaks. Otherwise they only sort of pay some attention to their Representative or Senator.

I've placed many article on Arild about Bernie, but as Hillary, a woman is running, I'm trying to find articles also about how women are thinking and who they are gearing towards. Bernie seems to be doing very well with the men, look in his audiences where he speaks, a lot of men there, and he seems to be drawing all ages too.

I'd never vote for someone based on gender. Bernie is a breath of healing in the toxic political air. It's called truth. He speaks from his soul for "We The People" and his splash of Socialism would renew the spirit of 1776 true democracy. Even battling against Congressional blocks, this country would attain renewed hope, spirits, empathy, ethics, a more balanced sharing of resources, and something very important for the unenlightened and for the evil---undeniable exposure of negative, destructive, toxic, unfairness, illegalities and other governmental atrocities, with insistence that they be addressed. The 1% now know just how disgruntled, disillusioned, disrespectful, disappointed "We The People" are, the world over. So, whether Bernie gets in or not, he's already made a positive difference in the world's atmosphere. He's the only candidate who would be the saving grace for not only his own country, but for Earth and all that lives, proving once again that truth is beauty. Thanks Dandelion--can't wait for my bumper sticker--"Go Bernie"!!

Great article, Dandelion, thanks.

Go Bernie Go...with the ladies etc behind you. Hilary, it is going to take more than wearing a skirt.

A terrifying conglomeration of Republicans are sowing a minefield ahead.......Go Bernie Go.

Will post to Facebook and forward on twitter.

Even if people vote for him I am afraid the 1% = military is going to undermine him. Presidents cannot always do what they would like to if the rest of the government does not agree.

Great article and refreshing to see somebody turning down money so as to not sell their soul to lobbies.

I was feeling much like the writer.....and then Bernie came along! He is already having a great impact---and I'm so happy to see this happen.

Arielle's "Be Brave with Bernie" is a good slogan. I'm glad to see the women here are not so swayed by the hem of a skirt as they are by the meaningful views of one Bernie Sanders. I'd love to see a woman President, too, but Hillary is not the one for my vote. Bernie is just too true to himself and to US to turn down now. As others have said here, no matter whether he wins or not, he has made America understand what is really going on in the country. That's something that no other candidate is doing (since Elizabeth Warren & Alan Grayson aren't running for the Presidency right now). This was a lovely article and such a gentle reminder about our civic responsibilities and how to go about them. Thanks again, Dandelion.

Shared on facebook, Google+ and twittersphere.

Women have had to fight every step of the way for so many things, it's extraordinary in a way, that they're still treated as commodities and chattel in a lot of societies and cultures.

I reckon Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren would be a powerful combination, but if there's a strong black candidate, or lesbian candidate, then why not.
