    This ought to really piss off a lot of Bernie voters. A major split the Dims don’t need and can’t afford. Now let’s see if GOP candidates speak up about it. It should help a lot in the 2018 midterms.

    The Democratic National Committee adopted a new rule Friday aimed at preventing non-Democrats, such as independent U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont, from seeking the party’s 2020 presidential nomination, reports said.

    The rule change, adopted at a DNC meeting in Providence, R.I., requires all candidates for the party’s nomination to “run and serve” as Democrats, Yahoo News reported.

    Bernie Sanders is not a Democrat. He's never been a Democrat. He doesn't support Democrat candidates. He doesn't raise money for Democrats.

    Why can't he run as a Republican?

    Why doesn’t Sanders just run as an independent?

    Because:

    They don't want him.
    His views align better with the democrats.
    He's already run as a democrat. His biggest sin was exposing the Hillary corruption at the heart of the DNC.
    It's fun to watch the democrats scramble to keep him out and tick off his supporters.

    That's why.
