Sen. Sanders may run for president

Posted: Updated:

U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders is causing some national buzz. The independent from Vermont says he is seriously considering a run for President, and has granted several interviews with national publications about that possibility.

Sanders told the "nation" that Americans are disillusioned because Republicans and Democrats have not advocated for ordinary people. Sanders aligns himself with the Democrats in Congress and has not decided whether to run as an Independent or as a Democrat. On another front, Ralph Nader took aim at Sanders this week saying he is unwilling to network with civic groups and called Sanders a "lone ranger unable to form a core progressive force within the Senate."
