I'm getting increasingly concerned that the Dems are blowing this and we're going to get 4 more years of this noxious clown show. Obama was right when he warned of the dangers of a circular firing squad.It feels like every day I read about someone announcing that they are running.At this rate it will soon be easier to name the Dems in the Senate who aren't running.
Forget by who, but I saw the point made recently that the last 2 successful Democratic presidential candidates, both of whom also won re-election bids, were both seen as challenges to the status quo and appealing to more centrist voters. I thought it was a good observation, but nobody in the current field jumps out at me as fitting that description.
The other important point not to lose sight of is this:this is not really a national election.It will come down the results in a small number of battleground states, maybe 5 or 6. You already know which way the other 40+ are going to go.Don't worry about those.
Sadly, having lost 3 very winnable presidential elections in the last 5, it's hard to have faith that the Dems will get this one right.
