How are you so sure of this? Bernie is a registered Independent that caucuses with the Democratic Party.
He has been in Congress for twenty-six years and has only succeeded at getting a whopping three pieces of his sponsored legislation passed into law and two of those three are renaming post offices in his home state!!
Please explain to me and everyone else how someone who has been in Congress for twenty-six years and has only managed to get one piece of legislation (that wasn't renaming a post office) passed into law will somehow be able to strong arm Congress to bend to his will?

Goodness gracious man. Get a room.
The white knight savior?! Someone has drank just a little too much white kool-aid.
No one man or woman can single-handedly waive a magic wand and rid the country and world of all strife and conflict.
What do you think the tens of millions of people who vehemently disagree with everything that Bernie Sanders stands for will do if he were somehow elected President? Bend over and worship him because he's your white knight in shining armor? Or do you think it's more likely that they would react in a way that would make their reactions to Obama's Presidency look like child's play?
Obama was a moderate who actually tried to work with the opposition party and they still made his life a living hell. Have you honestly convinced yourself that the Republicans would simply roll over and play dead if Bernie were somehow elected President?
This is why I think it's imperative that Americans understand basic civics. The Executive Branch is one third of the Federal Government. The other branches are co-equal branches that provide a check and balance among the other branches.
Then we get to state and local politics. That's where the vast majority of things that actually affect your day to day life take place. Yet only a tiny fraction of Americans actually participate in state and local elections. Ask anyone who their city councilman, state representative, or state senator is and I'll wager that 95% or more of respondents will give you a blank stare.
Donald's day to day actions are fodder for late-night comedians, but they pale in comparison to the decisions made by local school boards, your city council, and your state government.
