The bird did not say whether it thought we need a political revolution in this country or whether he supported breaking up the big banks, but he did seem to understand the power of tweeting.

I saw this on Rachel tonight and my first thought was "this is a positive sign"! Take it how you want but for me it is all about hope and love...
It made me smile :)

Thanks Dandelion!

The bird looks like a female sparrow to me so I did a little search...
Just for the helluva it go to under "Sparrow Animal Totem Symbolism"-it is VERY interesting!

BTW-I love the photo of Bernie with the birdie; Bernie is such a GOOD, and KIND human being!

If that had happened at a Trump event, Trump would have tried to pound on the bird with his fist or get his security to "get that filthy thing out of here!"

Thanks Laura....I'll leave it here as it took me awhile to find it. Perhaps it was just me.

The sparrow symbolism are also a wonderful symbol of protection and communal involvement.

I think that is perfect symbol for the Democratic Socialist.

Hamid Dabashi, a professor of Iranian studies and comparative literature at Columbia, shared this explanation. He talked about old Persian legends about a bird landing on someone to declare them the next king. He said happily we are beyond Kings so we might consider this little bird as a messenger from all wise men and women of the ages around the world that this noble soul is the person to lead this Nation.

The sparrow = courage, passion but tranquility.
Only person with peaceful mind & open heart can atract little bird to stay :)
Thank you, Dandelion.

His eye is on the sparrow. I agree with the above comments. As Bernie said, the little bird symbolizes the dove and wishes for world peace---so, he cheered Bernie's heart and let us know that this pure soul should be the next leader of this land.

Noted. Thanks, Dandelion.
I first saw it on Rachel Maddow, too. Then here and at Raw Story, I eyes tearing every time.
So I was surprised to find myself with tears again. No politician has ever brought me to tears---other than "angry" tears.

TY Sheryl, I saw this live and adore the look on Bernie's face. I donated quickly to his campaign to get the wonderful campaign sticker you posted. Noted and shared.
