By Tamar Lapin. July 9, pm Updated July 9, pm. Bernie Sanders posted a tribute to self-made billionaire Ross Perot, who died Tuesday — and revealed the two-time, third-party presidential candidate once gifted him a bejeweled blade for his work on a veterans bill. Democratic socialist Sanders referenced the unusual gift from the Texas capitalist in a New York Times article.
The Democratic Party needs a nominee, but right now it has a train wreck instead. The front-runner seems too old for the job and is poised to lose the first two primary season contests. The woman who was supposed to become the front-runner on the basis of her policy chops is sliding in the polls after thoroughly botching her health care strategy. The candidate rising in her place is a year-old mayor of a tiny, not-obviously-thriving city.

We deserve a president who shops at Ross. The election of Donald Trump upended a lot of political conventional wisdom, including any notion of what a president could or should be. With Trump in office, we were forced to confront the simple truth that a president could be boorish, functionally illiterate, too online, a Patriots fan, an alleged rapist, etc. This, while bad and humiliating, also presents an opportunity. If the office of the president is no longer beholden to false notions of dignity or competence or having a comprehensible center of gravity, then what else is possible? Seriously how is he upright? We could have a president who thinks military intervention should be a last resort. A president who believes a profit-driven health care system is immoral.

Warren seems like the type that would be too bougie to be caught in a Macy's, never mind Ross Dress For Less. So let's get to taking out their command, one by one. Valus Ta'aurc. He's well protected, but with the right team, we can punch through those defenses, take this beast out, and break their grip on Freehold.
