Did Buttigieg or Klobuchar ever really have a shot at the nomination? Nah.
B and K stayed in until just before Super Tuesday to extract maximum advantage from whoever the likely nominee, not named Sanders, might be. After South Carolina, Biden became the presumptive nominee, and the treaties were signed and endorsements exchanged.
Bloomberg is still around and plotting a comeback. And considering Biden’s talent for spouting gibberish, corruption, and behaving inappropriately, he might get it. And waste it. Meanwhile, Warren is staying in the race in the hope that Bernie will implode.
But the race effectively narrows down to three elderly men.
The Democrats have rallied behind a confused senile crook in the hope that he can stop a confused socialist crook.
No wonder they’re betting all they have on the coronavirus.
