For John, BLUF: I know our Democrat neighbor here in Lowell are enamored of Senator E Warren, but I don't think she goes the distance, nor does former Vice President Joe Biden. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Althouse Blog, by Professor Ann Althouse, 24 September 2019.
Professor Althouse talks about an article in The Washington Examiner, "New Hillary listening tour: ‘I’d like to hear what you're thinking'". And, she talks about a question, her Son John asked on Facebook.
Here is the key paragraph:
I certainly think Donald Trump is by far the most likely to win the election. That's easy to say because his party is pretty much adapted to him. That fight is over. What Trump did to the GOP has played out and (mostly) resolved. The Democratic Party is currently going through some kind of crack-up or evolution. It's fractured and chaotic, and there are — what? — 20 candidates and not one of them is much good. None seems equipped to go head-to-head with Trump.Here is the penultimate paragraph, with the question Democrats should be asking themselves.
News from the future: The Democrats beat Donald Trump in the 2020 election. It was nothing in particular that he did. He stayed the same. And nothing changed in the economy or foreign affairs or domestic violence or anything like that. It's all about the performance of the Democratic candidate. Now: Who was Democratic candidate?The nomination of Mrs Clinton is not a totally unlikely outcome. While I may not be quite as harsh as the Professor, each of them is flawed in some way, some more than others. The best of the lot is Representative Tulsi Gabbard, Democrat from the Great State of Hawaii.
Hat tip to Ann Althouse.
To be inclusive, my wife thinks the Democratic Convention will deadlock and the compromise candidate will be Ms Donna Brazile, who rescued the DNC in 2016, when it was imploding under the leadership of Representative Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
