Joe Biden versus Bernie Sanders?

Joe Biden

It’s all happening faster than I expected. I had expected Super Tuesday (tomorrow) to provide the final impetus to push some so-called “moderate” candidates out of the race. Instead, they’re dropping out and endorsing Joe Biden now and it appears that Biden, after all, will be the anti-Bernie Sanders.[1] Of that camp, only Michael Bloomberg, who runs pretty much on money and hubris alone, and whom I’ve already discussed,[2] remains. Chris Cillizza predicts that unless he does very well tomorrow (unlikely), he, too, will come under extreme pressure to withdraw and support Biden.[3] There is, of course, the matter of Elizabeth Warren but she, too, might well endorse Biden.[4] I can’t imagine Biden prevailing except through entirely predictable Democratic National Committee chicanery,[5] in which case, he’ll surely lose the general election.
