Publisher to print 300,000 copies in a strong showing of faith the Vermont senator's admirers still ‘Feel the Bern'

A week after Election Day, there will be a second popular vote. Bernie Sanders's admirers will have an opportunity to show whether their affection for the senator from Vermont was a flirtation or something more serious.

On Nov. 15, Sen. Sanders's memoir, "Our Revolution," will hit bookstores. Thomas Dunne Books, an imprint of St. Martin's Press, is printing 300,000 hardcover copies in a strong showing of faith. The hardcover edition is priced at $27, which Sen. Sanders has said was the size of his average campaign contribution.

"The campaign itself is a significant part of the book," says Thomas Dunne, a veteran publisher. "I'm hoping everybody who voted for him or donated money to the campaign will have to have the book."

"He wrote it himself," added Mr. Goldfarb, who sold the book without going to auction. "He didn't want a ghost writer." Terms weren't disclosed. A spokesman for the senator said he was unavailable for comment.

Sen. Sanders will promote his book on tour, including a stop at the Miami Book Fair on Nov. 19. Lissette Mendez, the fair's director of programming, says she expects his appearance will fill 1,000 seats at Miami Dade College's Chapman Conference Center in downtown Miami and that the fair plans to live-stream the event to nearby locations on campus.

If it were right wing drivel (Coulter, Hannity, Rand) it would be free everywhere and they'd call it a best seller.

"-The hardcover edition is priced at $27"

But it's free for poor people, right? And he'll donate any incomes to the poor...so as to not contribute to income inequality?

Should've named his memoir, Too Fast, But Not Fast Enough - How to Knuckle Under in Today's Tumultuous Political Environment, a Butt Hurt Screed by Bernie Sanders"

At least Bernie realized he couldn't name his memoir: Hardball, How the Game is Played by One Who Knows the Game (H/t Chris Matthews). Bernie played softball in the DNC debates like a straight woman lost among the -----.

Bernie might could have won this particular election as an Indie, though the chances are he would have crippled the Dem vote and united the GOP with Trump against, "The Red Menace!".

His campaign as a Dem, though, according to his managers, started out as a protest campaign meant to drive the Dem candidate left publically, which it did. In doing so, he staked out extreme positions with vague substantive backing not meant to be for a general election candidacy.

As an Indie candidate, his positions would be closer to what Clinton's are now after she moved left in policy to accommodate him. And he wouldn't have people complaining that he is really a capitalist, which he has been all along, albeit a socially conscious one. He did pretty well out of this financially; a new summer home, maybe some book sales, a more powerful place in the Senate.

And he allowed Hillary to stay close enough to the middle to be elected, while being able to support left leaning policy which has always been pretty much acceptable to her, if not to the middle-right.
