Kshama Sawant, the leader of Socialist Alternative, has launched the #Movement4Bernie. In doing so Sawant wrote that she is “urging Bernie – if he is blocked in the rigged primary process – to run as an independent, or as a Green on the ticket with Jill Stein.”
With the likelihood of Bernie Sanders losing to Hillary Clinton increasing, the idea that Bernie would endorse Hillary has to be a painful one for many Bernie supporters. Bernie has accused the Clinton campaign of finance law violations, suggested that she is not qualified to be President because of her judgment to align with Super-PAC’s.
Additionally, it is clear that DNC and the MSM have been openly biased in favor of Hillary.
For Bernie to endorse Endorsing Hillary now would seem absurd. And in that absurdity – let’s call it the #AfterBern- an opportunity presents itself for the Jill Stein campaign.
In this interview I ask Dr. Stein if she would accept a VP slot if Bernie were to seek the Presidential nomination of the Green Party. We also touch on a wide range of issues including: how to attract more millennial to the Green Party, whether or not we should be working to end capitalism, how the Jill Stein campaign has prepared for the moment Bernie would be forced out of the race and whether or no it was a mistake to launch her 2016 campaign so early.
