Vermont Congressman Bernie Sanders

Vermont Congressman Bernie Sanders (I), who’s <$NoAd$> running for Senate next year, just started his Table for One guest-blogging stint at TPMCafe.

In his first post he says he’ll be reading your comments throughout the day and following up with responses where possible.

Here’s the last paragraph of his first post to give you a flavor …

The political stakes in America have never been higher. If we lose, if the grass roots of America don’t speak out, if we do not turn back the radical Bush Administration, we will for the first time in our nation’s history see the next generation both less free and less economical prosperous than we are. What an incredible challenge we face. That is why I think it is so important for all of us to be involved in the political process and why I’m so glad to be communicating with you through TPMCafe today. I know I’ve touched on a lot of topics in a short space but my hope is to spark some interesting and informative exchanges. So pull up a chair to the Table for One and let’s get started.
