The primaries are now in full swing and even though the Republican field has the more entertaining candidates, the Democrats have the more interesting race.
Hillary Clinton, the expected front-runner, has encountered a major hurdle in the form of a fiery ole democratic socialist from Vermont by the name of Bernie Sanders. The guy has managed to close a 50-point gap and give Clinton a run for her Wall Street-backed money. He's also motivated the millennials and raised millions in private donations, which Goldman-Sachs was probably not expecting. Sanders has not only won several states, but has managed to make Clinton look like the only sane conservative running for president. During the last couple of debates, Hillary's best strategy in defeating Bernie has been to say the same thing he said months earlier. Although, he is still behind her in the polls, he's maintained a close enough distance to keep the Clinton campaign awake at night — so much so, that they finally agreed to appear in a debate hosted by Fox News. Sanders had agreed to do it way before her all on his own, but after he took Kansas, Maine, and Nebraska she had a sudden change of heart about the whole Fox thing, or maybe she just had a bit of "heart Bern."
