Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

I just saw a piece somewhere that said the Democrats had to nominate Sanders in order to beat Trump.  That's...insane.  It is precisely Clinton's "safety" that will be appealing to middle of the road voters if Trump continues his march to the nomination.

The possibility of Trump facing Sanders terrifies me.  Because there will almost certainly be a third party challenge that throws everything for a loop.

Sanders is not the guy to beat Trump.

Clinton most definitely is.
