Is the Primary Over Yet?

Is there anyone out there who still doesn’t think that the two major candidates for president have now been picked?

Not that I want anyone to drop out. I’m more than happy to have Sanders remain in the race, if for no other reason than for the sake of the Democratic Party platform. As for the other side, I’m still hoping for a bit of a ruckus and mudslinging at the GOP convention.

For now, my biggest fear is that the Democrats will not take Trump seriously enough, or that they will overplay their hand. Either would be disastrous. Even if Trump doesn’t become president, he will have changed our politics dramatically for the worse unless his campaign is completely repudiated at the polls. Otherwise, expect more anger, racism, intolerance, lies, bullying, and penis references in the future.

    “Electability and favorables” of the DNC presumptive nominee is what should be troubling you. Many people are really very, very tired of the politics of the lesser evil.

    Clinton is already rounding on Trump as her path to the nomination becomes clearer and clearer. But as Sqeaky Wheel writes, Democratic motivation will be an issue. The Editorial Board at the NY Times has it right, and they’re no fans of Sanders’.

    “The Democratic Party has also been caught by surprise by the anger of middle-class voters it thought it could rely on, even while failing to move meaningful legislation on college affordability, gun control, the minimum wage and better care for veterans.”
