Salon on the progressive third party

This article starts by saying that Sanders cannot run as a third party at this point. And that he would not have received as much support as he did if he'd done that from the beginning. But now that he has got the attention of millions of people, many of them young, after the election it might well be the time to organize such a progressive third party.

Many if not most of Sanders supporters have been disillusioned by the Democratic Party and no longer believe it represents them, just the corporate oligarchs. Rather than wasting time trying to reform the Democratic Party from the inside it's time to start from scratch with a Party that holds true to the values and policies the Sanders' agenda articulated. Hence it would garner massive momentum from the start if Sanders himself were to light the fire in this direction.
