Havt: Bernie Sanders one of the ‘most powerful’ politicians in the world

Havt’s new book profiles Sanders’ life on the road during the 2020 presidential election cycle, when Havt served as Sanders’ campaign manager. The book also goes into Sanders’ highly guarded private life.
“Very few people have profiled him in a real way,” Havt said while appearing on Hill.TV’s “Rising.” “Very few people know who he is what he’s about and I feel like I had a unique view on history I had this real privilege of being at his side for three years traveling to 35 states being with on picket lines, and in restaurants, and in cars and on planes.”
“I wanted to give people that picture because he is such a significant figure in history,” Havt added.
Havt said despite rising to fame late in his life and career, Sanders is as authentic on camera as he is behind it.

Does he use that power?!

And he did show just how quickly a broad-based, populist political movement can form. So yeah, he made a positive contribution.
Unfortunately, he lost all credibility with me when he capitulated to Biden and the Democratic establishment in 2020. I should have stopped supporting him altogether after 2016 when he shilled for Hillary, but I made the mistake of giving him another chance because I saw no other options.
I still don’t. I’ve just abandoned all hope of solving our problems through voting.
But Bernie is definitely not one of the most powerful politicians in the world because he refuses to use that power for what he says he believes in. IMHO and all that.
