Bernie Sanders has tied Hillary Clinton in Iowa and trounced her in New Hampshire, making his chances for a Democratic nomination stronger every day. What would a Sanders nomination mean for the future of the Democratic party? Locally, Kshama Sawant has shown that electing a socialist is possible, but is America ready for a democratic socialist president? Political cartoonist and cultural commentator Ted Rall (Snowden, Billionaires & Ballot Bandits), who once called Sanders “the other great liberal hope,” brings his trademark insight to Town Hall for an exploration of Sanders’ history, his liberal platforms, and what left-leaning tendencies he would bring to the White House. Rall will also offer a glimpse at his new graphic novel Bernie and “what his campaign means to you.”
