Happyclam -- Welcome to the Democratic Hub. You make an excellent point about Bernie Sanders, that if he is elected, his many "promises" would be thwarted by the Tea Partiers. This is exactly what happened to President Obama. I wrote about it in my blog post:
Democratic Hub: The Strategy behind the “Party of No” to obstruct job growth
I reference this article in Time:
Time Magazine, August 23, 2012: The Party of No: New Details on the GOP Plot to Obstruct Obama
The bottom line is that the Republicans were counting on Americans to pay little attention to what was going on in the halls of Congress, and when job growth was slowed because of the obstructionism, they blamed Obama for everything. Fox News led the charge.
They will do the same thing to a "President Bernie Sanders" or a "President Hillary Clinton"...or a "President Joe Biden". They don't give a shit about America...only that they are in power and that their rich oligarch benefactors continue to reap the benefits from their largess in campaign contributions.
Of course, President Obama has been able to succeed in many areas despite their sabotage, but his presidency could have been so much more successful in terms of jobs growth if it wasn't for the saboteurs.
