Bernie Sanders Campaign Your Thoughts?

At this stage, based on interviews  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/03/431891.shtml with Rep. Sanders himself, the delegate count and progress of campaign it appears that he will not be the Democrat Presidential nominee (while there's some ? chance he might be chosen for VP or some other post later on.... or ? be a Green Party/third party candidate).

Sanders' campaign has been successful in at least bringing nationwide awareness (even through corporate mass media obfuscation and ignorance) to a large population of some, though of course not all, of the issues raised by the Occupy movement several years ago. And, he insists that his campaign is an example of 'political revolution'  http://portland.indymedia.org/en/2016/02/431642.shtml

What are your thoughts about the effectiveness of his campaign message thus far, and what he might do (or be appointed for, if not chief executive) in office?

also the possible legacy of his 2016 election cycle campaign.
Please post your responses. Thanks.
