    Biden's campaign was running on fumes last week. No money, no presence on the ground in CA or many other large ST states. And no real vision of why he's running to inspire voters, other than a claim...

    That's not going to sound at all convincing given the fact that Biden has been tracking a few points lower against Trump than Sanders, both nationally and in rust belt states, and has bet on the...

    I assumed from the thread title this was a verdict on the Super Tuesday vote.

    Part of the reason I was wanting Sanders to win was the thought of the Clintons having to either endorse him or try...

    Not be Trump. But he's old, white, misogynistic, handsy, senile, and in bed with corporate interests. He wants to work with the Republicans (read: give them concessions but get nothing back)... So he...

    So SC appears to be the DNC's slingshot manoeuver (see Talledegah Nights). It's a clever play. Have the party hierarchy endorse the favored status quo candidate, knowing the SC voters are likely...

    I don't see a moderate/progressive ticket quite honestly. It didn't happen in 2016, nor was there any push for it from the media. But if a progressive is the top of the ticket in 2020, you'll get a...

    I'm anticipating a much narrower lead for Sanders than looked likely a week ago, before SC, and an increased likelihood of nobody winning the primary outright. The five-thiryeight model, adjusted...

    To misquote Homer, Donuts Tax Cuts, is there anything they don't solve?

    I'm willing to believe they would deflect a meteor at this point. Or possibly not. But we won't know until we try.

    If state level primary polls are to be believed, likely only Sanders, Biden and Bloomberg will be left standing after Tuesday.

    I think he could have stayed in and continued to announce winning in states before the vote counts proved otherwise. It’s hard to slow that kind of momentum.

    SC has claimed another candidate ... Buttigieg is quitting. And prior to Super Tuesday.

    Probably better news for Biden than Sanders.
