This is a slightly old article but an interesting one given current events. Bernie Sanders, Chess Master? Written just before he decided to run for United States President, it shows Sanders participating in a simul in his home state of Vermont. Although the article did not say how ell he played, he did last over an hour, and at least the picture in the article doesn't show anything too stupid.
Given his background and history, I would be a little surprised if he did not play chess, but I also assume that pesky things like politics and public service were a priority. Nonetheless, it would be nice to have a semi-serious chess player in the White House.
