ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Bernie Sanders, a self-described socialist U.S. senator who has launched a bid for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, said on Sunday that the problems facing the country require strong and bold leadership to solve and that he has those traits. "I would ask people to take a look at the role I've been playing for the past 25 years standing up for working families, and I have had a record, which is taking on the billionaire class, taking on Wall Street and taking on drug companies," Sanders told "Face the Nation" on CBS when asked why he would be better than fellow 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. When asked what makes Clinton vulnerable, Sanders pointed to the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade agreement that he opposes and Clinton's vote for the Iraq war. Sanders faces long odds against Clinton's fund-raising might, and his views might help position the former Secretary of State and First Lady more as a moderate and buttress her efforts to attract money from banks' deep pockets.
