Larry Wines: Over the loud piped-in strains of a song that represents just about everything he flippantly decries, The Donald just announced he is running for the Republican nomination for president. But don’t say, “Yeah, like, who isn’t?”
Larry Wines: If Jeb-exclamation-point’s big war chest and establishment Republican connections, and Hillary’s presumption of inevitability both prove enough to carry the day and make them the opposing nominees, bring on the No-Doz.
Michael T. Hertz: If MoveOn supports Sanders, that will be a big step. It will, in effect, take away from Hillary Clinton’s contention that she is a progressive and will give a big boost to Sanders’ campaign.

Ted Vaill: The results are extremely interesting, as the “clown show” is now beginning in earnest.
Peter Dreier and Pierre Clavel: In his eight years as mayor of Burlington, Vermont, Bernie Sanders revitalized the economy and solidified support for progressive municipal policies.

Michael Hertz: In the past few days, I’ve run into two Republicans who said that they want Bernie Sanders for President. Republicans for a avowed democratic socialist. How did that happen?
Denis Campbell: It was a brilliant political strategy. The Tories (like US Republicans) know FEAR of extremism of any kind, in relatively good economic times, can be a powerful motivator. Find the right mantra, ride it to victory.
Tina Dupuy: Jeb has repeatedly said George W. will be the person he listens to on Mideast issues.
Michael Hertz: Jeb has told us what he is: a bald-faced liar, ready to say anything that will help him get elected. And his words will come back to haunt him.
