While Bernie Sanders, the Vermont socialist running for the Democratic Party presidential nomination, was speaking at a rally in Portland, Oregon, a little bird landed on the podium, prompting cheers of adulation from the crowd.
Sanders called it symbolic and said the bird “is really a dove asking us for world peace. No more wars!”
