Is Max the answer?
Max Keiser is gearing up to run for Congress in North Carolina where his mother lives. He spent most of his adult life in NYC and London, so he may have a carpetbagger problem.
Basically he wants to pull the Dem party away from Bush and back toward left-populism. Admirable goal but I don't think Max is the right man for the job. His solutions are abstract and bankerish, focusing on monetary policy instead of manufacturing. He understands the economic problems of the working class numerically
but has no empathy and no understanding of SKILLS and USEFULNESS. His wife Stacy may be able to fill in the gaps, as she does increasingly on their RT show. That won't be enough.
Bernie had no direct experience of working-class life but he has loads of empathy. He can look at the numbers and accurately imagine
how those people live. Max can't.
RT is going to be a giant obstacle since the current DNC structure is solely built on starting a nuclear war with Russia. Anything and anyone tainted by Russia, yea unto the 7th times 7th generation, is nuke-worthy.

Irrelevant sidenote: At this stage of life Max is a dead ringer
for the Egyptian movie actor Adel Emam,
who was big in the '60s and '70s. Could be identical twins. Looks the same, moves the same.
