Senator Bernie Sanders to Run for President

Let's all cheer, independent Bernie Sanders is reportedly running for president.

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) will launch a campaign seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2016 on Thursday.

We think the Huffington Post must have part of the story wrong for Senator Sanders is a Democratic Socialist, not a Democrat and thus is not in the Democratic party.  We don't see how he could challenge Hillary in a primary, unless he plans on joining the Democratic party, which to date hasn't happened.  Sanders does caucus with the Democrats in the Senate, but he is officially an independent voice.

Regardless Sanders is one sharp guy for the people and to have him enter the race would finally give people at least some choice.

Update:  It seems Sanders is going to run as a Democrat and thus would be a direct primary challenge to Hillary.
