"Bernie" Sanders, the Brooklyn-Vermont "democratic socialist" who takes the debate stage Thursday night as one of the three leading candidates to become the Democratic Party's presidential nominee.
Sanders is at a disadvantage. He's not the Establishment Favorite - that would be Joe Biden - and he's not the Surging Insurgent, Elizabeth Warren.
He is, instead, The Exact Same Guy He Was Last Time - a fiery leftist who has a substantial, if not primary-majority-size, base of committed supporters who believe in his ambitious plans to bring justice to a "rigged" society by sticking it to the damn fat cats.
A Sanders presidency would, guaranteed, involve an attempt to raise taxes on top earners in order to institute single-payer universal health coverage and make college free.
