Senator Bernie Sanders exits the stage after addressing the New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont delegation breakfast at the Democratic National Convention (DNC) on July 27, 2016 in Essington, Penn.

Our final segment of Also Rans looks at one of our most recent failed presidential candidates: Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. At the end of a long, tough primary fight, Sanders failed to achieve the Democratic nomination, but his 13 million votes gave him a great deal of influence in the party's platform and it's future.

Joining us to talk about his campaign and it's legacy is one of Sanders' early high-profile endorsers and surrogates, Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor in the Clinton Administration, Professor of Public Policy at UC Berkeley, and author of 14 books including Aftershock, The Work of Nations and, most recently, Saving Capitalism.
