#1 Plugs, somewhat like the late John McCain, is a throw away, notional candidate. The dems know they don't have a snowball's chance in hell. Unable to get anything to stick on the Orange Man, why waste a good leftest candidate on a losing race.

#2 Here's a thought - most Antifa types are Bernie Bros, right? What's preventing them from not only voting for Trump (which, now that I think about it for two seconds, I don't believe at all) but going to DNC events, protesting, raising hell and kicking the crap out of other Democrats?

#4 I think #5 mis spelled UNREALISM, but the spelling he chose said a lot anyway...

Beo,

You might be on to something here. What if the thinking at the very, very top is to concede that none of their candidates is going to make it, especially if the economy keeps going great guns? Let Trump have it...because in 2024, Mike Pence is likely to be the candidate. By their way of thinking, an old Christian white man with no record would be a lot easier to defame and beat.

#7 I'm really not a Pence fan, but by 2024 the dems may need someone who makes Butt-edge-edge look like Ward Cleaver. It could be interesting.

#8 It's hard to imagine AOC fans feeling the fierce moral urgency of electing Joe Biden. I would recommend that she form a third party.

#10 Lessons learned:
1. Don't believe the polls.
2. Remember this is early and the Dem candidate is probably not even in the mix yet, hence Obama...
3. Don't believe the media.
The Dems have a long way to go, they will see what they have to offer right now will not win. They will find someone that comes in near the end to start a popularity wave. Someone like Opra...

#11 #9 Alan's, you might be correct. Hillary has been making noises in NH. HRC at Dartmouth.

#12 someone who makes Butt-edge-edge look like Ward Cleaver. It could be interesting.

The other night one of the late night comedians, or perhaps it was Saturday Night Live — I really wasn’t paying attention — played the entire bit President Trump did at the Florida rally about Sleepy Joe Biden and Butt-edge-edge, et al... The audience laughed, but that’s gong to stick in people’s minds.

#13 If any of you have the idea that the Democrats have even the slightest idea of allowing a free and fair election, you're crazy.

It's going to be rigged, rigged, rigged from day 1. In their minds Trump is enough of a threat to disable democracy.

#14 I'm in my fifth decade of watching the American political scene, and every decade has shown that the center, as the overall electorate sees is, has shifted leftwards almost steadily. There were stutters like Reagan, but this moments also saw fierce leftist vehemence to claw back the drift. Nothing, ever, in my lifetime has been as vicious, ruthless, dishonest or wicked as the assault on Trump and his policies. The velocity of the drift under Champ was rapidly accelerating, and the importation of vast millions of low wage, entitlement-expecting foreigners coupled with really ignorant youth from our propaganda mills educational system, produced their expected omno-party moment. Unfortunately, their candidate was a vile, grifting plutocrat who couldn't win even with every advantage. SO now, what are they to do? The energy on their side is from the communist/socialists/social justice tribes, and the media almost exclusively carries ridiculous ad hominem attacks over actual news 24/7. SO they will keep making Trump seem some kind of dangerous monster, absent actual facts, and keep tacking left to get polling datum and let the horde suckup money, then if Biden can't get out of his own way, the Wookie, Oprah, or another "moderate will ride to the rescue. The center left of today's Democrat party was pure socialism in the 1960's, but few know that anymore...and we are increasingly dismissed as haters and unworthy of holding a genuine opinion...

#15 if Biden can't get out of his own way, the Wookie, Oprah, or another "moderate will ride to the rescue.

Michelle Obama is even a worse campaigner than Hillary Clinton, and openly loathes politics and politicians (and the common run of voter) besides. And Oprah, though incredibly rich, has been losing viewers for years since she moved to her own channel on cable — and her viewers are female, not a mixed audience.

#16 Dems will lie cheat gerrymander and keep losing until they go kinetic. Then all bets and gloves are off. It won’t be pretty. They are putting themselves in a corner.
