NBC’s Chuck Todd Friday morning noted that the Democratic base, while it will vote for Hillary, doesn’t particularly adore her.
This is important because it means that she can’t win the election in the way President Obama did – by grabbing the Democratic Party on the left side and squeezing out every vote possible.
But it also provides room for two people who are talking about getting in, Joe Biden and Al Gore, to jump into the primaries.
I know you think they are clowns, but they both have the ability to get lefty Democrats to the polls. And their ideas aren’t as far out of the mainstream as those of Socialist Bernie Sanders. And that could be more dangerous for Republicans than many think.
