Dear Senator Sanders,

I'm a fan. You're great on the radio and you're right (that is, I agree with you) about many things. I'm glad you're a Senator and hope you keep your job as long as you want it.

That being said, you're not a member of my political party, and the business of nominating our presidential candidate is, therefore, none of your business. We can create all the trouble we can handle internally. Please don't feed the trolls.

Thanks,

Upper Left

Running against the president as an antiwar candidate, forcing his hand on Afghanistan, really might not be a bad idea. Just consider the effect it has on the number one issue in the mind of most Americans: the economy.

Of course, you make a good point, considering the last time such a serie of events unfolded against a sitting Democratic president, we ended up with Richard Nixon. Nixon might have been evil, but at least he was intelligent - admittedly, a dangerous combination. We can thank a security man at the old Watergate hotel for ending our long national nightmare.

Looking at some of the dim bulbs running on the GOP side of the ledger, this time, things could get worse - much worse.

I would LOVE a real progressive to primary Obama. He needs to be dragged back toward the left... and I don't see many other likely tools (other than a primary) to make that happen.
Additionally... wouldn't it be FAR BETTER to have a true progressive get beat by Obama in a primary (but get progressive issues on the table) than have a Nader/Green candidate in the general slurping up 4% of the vote?
