Mayor Bernie Sanders on CSPAN, 1988

I have enjoyed going back and looking at Bernie's House and Senate speeches on YouTube. Here is the link to a CSPAN appearance by Bernie from 1988 when he was mayor of Burlington, VT. He was talking about the same issues then as he is now, but now the problems are much worse. He also gets into some of the things his administration was doing in Burlington to improve the lives of its citizens. I thought some others here might find it interesting and enjoyable.

He says he ran for mayor in 1980 at the urging of a friend, won by 14 votes initially and by only 10 votes after a recount. But for those 10 votes, we probably wouldn't be seeing him as a Presidential candidate today.

1. Awesome find!!!

Thanks for posting.

Also, for an example of how he has always been consistent, please jump to the 15 min mark to hear him talk about healthcare.
