    I wonder where her supporters will go? Sanders? Or Biden?

    I'd guess mostly to Sanders.

    James Carville in Louisiana pulled the moderates together to unite behind Biden in spite of his shortcomings in order to stop the expensive primary battle and in order to stop the far-left drift of the Democrat Party towards the communism of Sanders. The set-up of the Democrat Party may be old-fashioned in that there are still many at-large or uncommitted delegates made up of elected officials and party stalwarts. They automatically go to the convention and they are unbound but I forget exactly what the Democrats call them. Another feature of the Democrats system is that if you win over 15% of a state vote you get a portion of the delegates depending upon the percentage of the vote that you won. The Republicans have a winner take all system. The Democrats by keeping the party bosses have saved their party from the nomination of a communist who is not even a Democrat so maybe it is the GOP that should revise their rules to reinstate their party bosses as automatic delegates. Republicans are noted for nominating the front runner and for cutting the primaries short because of the huge costs of the elections.

    I think that the entire country will owe Carville a thank-you if indeed Sanders is denied the nomination in Milwaukee this summer.

    As for Warren, her life-long string of lies undid her. After she lied her way into Harvard, she was a consultant to the Democrats on revising the federal bankruptcy laws. After the law was written, she made millions consulting with companies telling them how to circumvent the law by telling them that she wrote it and therefore could guide them safely around the legal traps.

    President trump is getting his re election on a silver platter, as either one who wins, the supporters of the other one will not turn out in national election!

    She will probably ask to be their VP pick to get her support!

    Biden mentally seems to be losing it, have you noticed?
    Another BIG unknown, old people who get covid-19 tend to die at high rates or are seriously incapacitated. Imagine if some candidates start dying off or are too sick to campaign.

    As if any of this even matters.... With the Superdelegate system the party leaders choose who they want as their nominee, not the people.

    Its different this year. Superdelegates are only important on second ballot.

    If any candidate is positive, that is the end of their campaign, they wont let them out in public, especially to expose other old politicians. Since old people are very susceptible, all these old politicians would be dying like flies.

    Modern medicine artificially extends natural lifespans, without it, life expectancy would be much lower. I can easily imagine both senate and the house becoming infected with this virus. Imagine that.

    No, the Dems should refuse to debate this year because Grandpa Joe could not hang for 2 hours. It would be a shame to humiliate an elderly person with early dementia on national television. Trump has nothing to debate with in Biden. In the case of Sanders, he should be denounced as the no-good communist that he is.

    Except there should be a debate as it is part of the vetting process. People wont want a POTUS who is not all there. They need to see that to make an informed choice. Biden never fails to speak out, he will want to debate.

    Poor debating ruined Bloomberg's chances.

    Just think that President trump should avoid ALL bad comments on Joe, and just recite real facts on just how bad we would be under Biden watch!

    I think Biden has serious corruption issues with the Ukrainian stuff. Him boasting about getting the prosecutor fired who began to investigate the company his unqualified son sat on that gas company board. Lots of US tax money was involved. Could be US tax dollars was funneled back to the Bidens in a type of money and influence peddling scheme.
