Sanders actually could mathematically get back in and win enough delegates between now and the convention to actually secure the nomination.
Not sure about the math, wouldn't he need Biden to give him his delegates at the convention? Again forget about Sanders he is toast. The party knows he blows everything up and quite frankly I think Dems would rather have 4 more years of Trump because at least there will be an economy in 2024 and they can start fresh with Newsom and Cuomo and stop with the communism stuff.
There are still 1389 delegates that have not been awarded yet. Bernie has 984 so he would need 1007 of those delegates. Again, not mathematically impossible.
I still think that Old Joe Biden is the proverbial "crash car" in the race and might not yet be a lock for the nomination. And Biden has done his job well, helping get Trump impeached and forcing him to waste too much of his best "campaign ammo" way too early in the election cycle to be effective for convincing undecided voters come November. But Old Joe is pretty much "damaged goods" due to having too many "Clintonian-era" ties for my comfort. The bizzare & ancient sexual harrassment claim against Old Joe (which would not stand up in a court of law) just illustrates Biden's Clintonian tendancies. IMHO, the further the Democratic Party distances themselves from the Clintons, the better and that means moving on from Biden.
However, Bernie getting the nomination would unleash a torrent of Wall Street funding for Trump's campaign because Bernie scares the daylights out of those in the financial community ("He'll tax us to death! He'll nationalize everything!"). The Street has been uncommonly kind to Trump because he, Ryan and McConnell handed them billions of dollars in tax breaks in exchange for keeping the "gravity-defying" Bull Market going, even with 30+ million unemployed, post-COVID-19.
I think Kluchobar or Harris would make better candidates to take down Trump.
Truthfully Wall Street is kind to who ever looks after their interests. Biden certainly fits in this camp, which is why so many on the left feel they have no choice this election. And its no better on the right either. Harris and Klobuchar are cut from the same mold as well, other than they are women. My issue with Klobuchar on top of her corporatist neoliberal leanings, is that she does not treat her staff well. If this translates into the Oval Office, it will make Trump's White House look like a well oiled machine. I don't think Harris is right either. Harris to me would strike me as a future Attorney General. I don't see her as president. Wall Street would be fine with either though, and the Democratic Establishment will not let someone get the nomination without the blessing of Wall Street. One other issue is that to take down Trump, the democrats are going to need the Liberal Base to turnout, but at the moment, all the democratic party does to Liberals is give them the finger.
Except Republicans have NOT been silent on this issue. They keep bringing it up as "proof" that Biden is unfit for office. Republicans are not silent on this issue because they are applauding and pointing to their state media interview with Reade as proof that Biden is unfit for office. Calls for Biden to drop out are coming from Republicans. Republicans are far from silent on this issue.
I still have not seen any tit-for-tat that many of us have been asking about. These "silent" Republicans want Biden gone because of this one alleged sexual assault but refuse to remove their leader because of his many sexual assault allegations. Multiple. Not just one sketchy one. When you guys drop your sexual assaulter, we can talk about dropping ours. This seems to be an important factor for running the country. If it is as important as you all say it is, go on. Nominate someone with character. Who has zero sexual assault allegations against him.
Go on. We'll wait
You are kidding me right? Rich McHugh who produced this interview and Megyn Kelly are not state media. For you to even suggest that is dishonest. And you keep saying republicans have called for Biden to drop out? Which republicans are they? Can you name them? Can you provide sources? The people calling for Biden to drop out are on the left. Cenk Unger, Lyz Lenz (who was a Warren Supporter), Kyle Kulinski, Ana Kasparian, and Steven Putrow are a few of the names calling for Biden to withdraw. NONE of them are Republicans and almost all of them are figures on the Left.
Seb my conclusion is that you think Progressives and Republicans are the same people. Because everytime progressives do something that I factually point out, you claim republicans do it without providing facts. And if this is what you believe, good luck in ever getting progressive policies enacted.
