The 3rd Way is code for centrists who can pull in Wall Street money while tossing crumbs to the electorate. On the color code scale they are pure purple, along with the old school Repubs The 3rd Way is not a solution, it is the Problem!
I believe the term you're looking for is "window dressing".
No publicity is bad publicity in the final analysis. Which Democratic candidate is getting the most exposure by the MSM, Hillary or Bernie? In the political campaign game the kiss of death is no exposure. The minor, unprovable scandals keep Hillary in the public eye. In time I expect to see these same "scandals" used to paint her as a independent underdog, fighting against the system for the American workers (cue inspirational music).
Bernie is running a political campaign geared at actually presenting issues. Everybody else is running a long term marketing campaign. You see we no longer elect people based on issues in this country. We elect the salesman, preselected by moneyed interests, who has the best sales pitch and can build the largest cult of personality.
38 posts and only one dealing with Senator Sanders
Senator Sanders has the power structures worried on both sides.
His plan to represent 99% is a new thing to the 1% currently attempting to purchase the presidency.
The excitement among the 99% is palatable.
You can see it in the vast network of volunteers around the nation working for his election.
You can see it in the ongoing and consistent and large turn out of people coming out to see him, even on work days.
What's important to him is not the hairstyles of his opponents or who is ahead in the polls.
What's important to him are the things that matter to working people, he is not distracted by the race but focused on the issues.
That's why his support keeps growing.
That's why when people hear him.
Instead of the talking heads spouting about this or that concerning Senator Sanders.
But when people listen to Senator Sanders, they support him.
Because he supports us and represent us and what is important to us.
You hear that every time he speaks.
He is not a distraction like the many posts on this thread are.
He is and will be, during the rest of his campaign, focused on what is important and that is why he can and will win the Presidency of the United States
