Quote of the Day

"If somebody like me—or me—became president, there is no chance in the world that anything significant could be accomplished without the active, unprecedented support of millions of people, who would be prepared to make a commitment—the likes of which we have not made! I know that I don't wanna be in the White House taking on the Koch brothers, who'll be running ads 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, trying to destroy me and my family and everything else that we believe in, and not have people getting involved. And I don't know whether that can happen. That's what I'm trying to figure out."—Socialist Senator from Vermont Bernie Sanders, sharing his current thoughts about whether he'll run for president in 2016.

He's absolutely right. He's a smart cookie, that one.
