The senate and Bernie!

What a thrill to sit in the gallery above the United States Senate floor and listen to the action. I sketched as rapidly as I could, with so many people walking about with such hurried purpose and importance. 
Finally the action seemed to slow down a bit.  Important people like John McCain that even I (not being very politically involved) could recognize, left the room and a gentleman with a pink face and fluffy white hair stood up and began a long and impassioned speech.
He had me interested and leaning forward to get it all. And I didn't know who he was at first, as of last June he wasn't in the news all the time. Now he is!
