Was there ever a national candidate who was more of a “dark horse” than Bernie Sanders? Old, gruff, a political Seabiscuit, he pushed Hillary Clinton, the favorite of the establishment and Wall Street, into a match race for the ages. On the eve of announcing his candidacy in April 2015, polls had this Brooklyn-born Jewish socialist at 3 percent. Then this man who never ran for office as a Democrat until he ran as a Democrat for president, proceeded to win 18 primaries and caucuses, crafting a campaign not only historic but inspirational to millions, particularly the young.
