Jill Stein, the current candidate for the Green Party has offered to step aside if Bernie Sanders wants the party’s nomination. If Bernie starts showing interest in running, look for democrats to go into full panic mode. More likely though is that Bernie’s wife will suddenly become a high paid consultant for the Clinton Foundation. The liberals would pull out all stops to keep him from jumping ship
You see, Bernie taking the Green Party nomination would not just affect the 2016 election, because if the party gets 10% of the vote, they will have an automatic spot in future elections in all 50 states and the money they currently spend on getting their candidate eligible, will now be spent in the general election and almost surely will guaranty the Green Party candidate’s eligibility to participate in all of the debates. The same holds true with all of the Cruzbots voting for Gary Johnson. If Johnson gets 10% of the vote, republicans will never win another presidential election. If Bernie gets 10% for the Green Party, the democrats will suffer the same fate.
Jill Stein said:
“I’ve invited Bernie to sit down explore collaboration – everything is on the table. If he saw that you can’t have a revolutionary campaign in a counter-revolutionary party, he’d be welcomed to the Green party. He could lead the ticket and build a political movement.”
“If he continues to declare his full faith in the Democratic party, it will leave many of his supporters very disappointed, That political movement is going to go on – it isn’t going to bury itself in the graveyard alongside Hillary Clinton.”
Let the bidding begin.
