Things have greatly improved for Sen. Bernard Sanders, who has recovered from a heart attack on the campaign trail and returned to public life — appearing Saturday at a major rally in New York City where he earned the ready endorsement of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. The Vermont independent and New York Democrat then celebrated progressive values and socialism before an enthusiastic crowd of 25,000.
But wait. Let’s suppose Mr. Sanders and Ms. Ocasio-Cortez joined forces and she became his running mate in the 2020 presidential race. Can you imagine the glowing press, the giddy commentary the endless photo-ops of the brave septuagenarian and the 30-something who could in theory shake up the political world?
At 30, Ms. Ocasio-Cortez is not old enough to take the vice presidential office. Like the presidential candidate, a vice presidential hopeful must be at least 35, as stipulated by the Constitution.
But wait again. There’s also filmmaker Michael Moore waiting in the wings. He also endorsed Mr. Sanders, and, at 65, is old enough to be a veep.
So you never know. Maybe we’ll see SANDERS/MOORE 2020 on a bumper sticker somewhere, After all, one of the bestselling bumper stickers at the moment is one which reads “ANY FUNCTIONING ADULT 2020.”
