An oligarch's opinion on why Sanders can't win
This article lays out what it takes to be President of the US. And why Senator Sanders is therefore not qualified. A successful candidate must be "a member of either major political party" and their "network of cronyism and backroom deals." One also needs to be "beholden to a major corporate interest or investment bank."Although the quoted author thinks that this "system works," because it eliminates the possibility for someone with integrity like Sanders from even having a chance. That's what "it works" means to the oligarchs. While the author is right that Sanders couldn't generate contributions from the billionaire class, he is so popular with the rest of us that I'd bet he'd generate plenty of money from millions of small contributions.
