The meme tweets and posts here, there, the idea that Mr Sanders could join an All-Outsider-Trump-Ticket. While it's highly unlikely that Mr Trump/his base would want a man on the ticket Mr Trump has said is "a communist", another question would be whether or not Mr Sanders/his people could stomach Mr Trump. Yet for Mr Sanders the issue would be well more critical than, say, a decision to withhold his enthusiastic endorsement and ongoing fall support for Mrs Clinton. The issue would be Mr Sanders' credibility as a man, as a rational voice, as a serious figure in progressive national politics moving forward, not allowing himself, undermining his considerable gifts and potential for giving more, to become the cynical crank his more extreme caricaturists say he is. I cannot imagine his agreeing to such a move no matter that a segment of his supporters can see it and, perhaps, hope for it.
