I thought about him, but discounted the idea. Whether you agree with him, or not, his policies\/agenda\/philosophy aren't all about him. He's certainly no left-wing analog of Trump. In fact, at this point in time, I don't see anyone on the left who would qualify. Whatever one's opinion of the "usual suspects" on the left - Sanders, Warren, AOC, etc.- they all talk about policy, not themselves. Bernie has his "Bernie bros", but they're a faint shadow of the Trumpistas.\n\nI should note, it's pretty clear that Trump doesn't have any particular political philosophy. It just that his shtick happened to appeal to people on the right\/far right.\n\nAgain, a Trump-like figure could arise who could appeal to the left. I just don't see one yet.\n\n\nI disagree. He's on just as much as power trip as Trump, it's just about government control. As for his Bernie Bros, well, exactly what has Bernie done to distance himself from those bullies and radicals? Nothing. I think he likes them. For one thing, his attacks on people who disagree with him remind me of Bernie Bro threats, and Trump. Two of a kind, just different ideologies for achieving and holding power.
