More than 65 years after the death of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, we have a leader who channels FDR’s spirit: Senator¬† Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont. After generations of liberal politicians sans cojones, here’s a guy who will stand up and send a powerful message to politicians across the spectrum, from right-wing nut jobs to wishy-washy liberals.¬† That consists of two short words, seven measly letters. OK, so he’s more diplomatic than that but it’s the same message.

I am 58 years old and until now, I have had one politician-hero in my life: Eugene McCarthy. Now I have two. My only question for Sen. Sanders: How can I support you?
