He'll likely win. I suppose the question of "How do you solve a problem like Bernie" perhaps sung to a Sound of Music tune, is foremost in the minds of the DNC. Having someone of an independent mindset however beneficial that might be is likely intolerable.

It'll be amusing if Sanders wins the nomination, because Trump obviously poured a lot of his energy into attacking Biden. I'm sure Trump will switch tactics, but he's probably kicking himself for wasting his Ukraine extortion attempts on a candidate that now might not get the nod.

And let's face it, Trump will have a harder time attacking Sanders (not that he won't try) due to the lack of baggage compared to Clinton or Biden. It's more a question of whether Trump can portray Sanders as a socialist boogeyman without getting blasted in return (Sanders can rightly point out to Trump wasting money on the rich and the military).

You know, it just occurred to me to wonder whether Sanders even plays golf. That could be a decent cost savings right there.

Can the OP start some conspiracy theories now, or do we have to wait for page 3 for the random Twitter posts?

Just how will Hillary and the Establishment screw Bernie this time?

Power outages?
Rigged voting machines?
Chemtrails seeding clouds for rainstorms to depress turnout?

Gawd. Bernie has lots of dirty rotten terrarist sympathizing Leftist! Leftist! Leftist! baggage. The GOP is salivating over the prospect of eating him alive. That's why they haven't really attacked him- yet. They've been cooking up a giant batch of extra special slime sauce for years in anticipation. So tangy.

I'm going with Obama's Kenyan voodoo time warp mind control. It only works on people who drink fluoridated water.

I don't really see how a candidate's amount of baggage is even relevant in today's climate. Trump and his followers don't care about truth anyways. They will just make up whatever shit they want about whoever the candidate is, throw everything possible, see what sticks, and then stick with that. Facts don't matter anymore.

The most effective lies have a plausibly true kernel to build the bullshit upon.

Then you had better get together with your fellows and the DNC to sabotage right now. In any case, it comes down to what the voters think, not you nor Trump. Bernie is not perfect but the anti-environmental people in the Dem party like lying dog-faced pony soldier man Biden may prevail. Biden hasn't the balls and most of the Dems either to tackle critical matters now, so we might "win" with one of those. I'll still go with Bernie but I think Warren could suffice.

I can't get over it...
The DNC is really trying to control this thing and pretty much wrangle who they want to win.
The DNC does not like Bloomberg, already crap is being tossed around about Bloomberg, his defending of stop and frisk, his defending of tossing blacks against the wall, and all that money. No, the DNC sure doesn't like Mike Bloomberg it appears.

And then Bernie. The DNC doesn't like Bernie either.
Probably a carry-over issue from 2016. I don't think the DNC considers Bernie Sanders as a democrat or as one of them.
If the voters keep choosing Bernie, one can only imagine the wrath of hell the DNC will rain down upon Bernies head. I can't watch.

It appears the DNC will tolerate only two of the group. Joe Biden first, and Elizabeth Warren second if they must. But they want Joe and they don't care that Donald Trump would tear Joe Biden apart one on one. And that Attorney General Barr will undoubtedly pull a Hillary Clinton on old Joe days before the election. Barr will announce with some urgent press conference that new evidence has emerged concerning Joe and son Hunter. New evidence setting off an entirely new investigation into the Biden's, Ukraine, and corruption. Then bye bye to Joe's chances.

No one knows who will win New Hampshire today, but it probably doesn't matter. The DNC knows what the eventual outcome will be, or what they will insist it to be, and that will probably be Joe. Or maybe Warren. But more likely Joe has it in the bag.
I bet Trump is Just loving this.....

Likely and the Dems lose to Trump and blame everyone else but no fault found in themselves. The only reason I'll vote Biden is he's not Trump, but then kiss the real problems of the environment as dead and buried until too late.

If you're talking about the audio, that was uncovered by Benjamin Dixon, a leftist Bernie supporter on Twitter and podcaster. Bloomberg is a fucking ghoul, he would absolutely be worse than Trump.

You guys have truly spun yourselves into crazy town. Bloomberg would be a vast, vast improvement over Trump.

I see you're already psyching yourself up to go back on your pledge to vote for the Democratic nominee if it isn't Sanders. This is not surprising.

Honestly if nothing else good comes of this, I hope some folks stumble onto Benjamin Dixon. I don't listed to his podcast anymore, and I don't agree with him on everything, but he's an extremely good dude, and he deserves a bigger audience.

Oh, puh-leeze. I expect Biden to drop out before too much longer. He isn't getting the funding or the support from the rank & file to prevail. It's not like there's much air between Bernie & the rest at this point. 26% is not some crushing victory. I doubt he can prevail w/o an honest majority (or close to it) of pledged delegates at the convention.

And, yes, I rather fancy Warren myself.
