    Is Bernie done after the second "Super Tuesday"?

    To mirror our "Is Biden Toast" post, here's the question now- is Bernie done?

    Will he continue to fight it out until the convention, or will he take a seat?

    PJ Media's Stephen Green, on his 2nd Super Tuesday liveblog, wrote the following:

    I have two big takeaways.
    The first is that Sanders just doesn't have the fire to win his party's nomination. He squandered some impressive early wins by failing to go after his chief rivals by name. That, more than any one thing, might have brought Biden's campaign back from the grave.
    The second is a question: Given how poorly Sanders has done by all metrics in the last three weeks, how much of his massive 2016 support was really nothing more than anti-Hillary sentiment?
    Truth is, Bernie is really not a candidate with broad appeal. He has his loyal core of fans, but that's pretty much it.

    Shapiro pointed out that only one person who ran against Hillary didn't do very, very well. Including Bernie in 2016.

    It also seems that The Squad- AOC especially, is far more popular with pundits & social media influencers than they are with voters.

    I wonder what the effects of AOC, Omar, et al throwing in with Bernie are going to be?

    The Dems are left with two unelectable candidates: an old socialist/communist and an old, senile (and increasingly embarrassing) swamp creature. If I'm a Dem, I might be hoping for a yet unannounced candidate to jump into the fray, perhaps at the convention.

    If that unannounced candidate is, say, Michelle Obama, it would dramatically improve the Dem's odds of winning the white house. Do you suppose the DNC will just sit back and let the two old white dudes sink their chances in November?

    Yes, Bernie is done. He was done a while ago, when the Powers That Be in the DNC determined it'd be a complete non-starter to run a Communist for office, AOC and her ilk be damned. He will not form a split party, he will not fight his corner, he will not go after Joe.

    He will meekly endorse him at the convention and attempt to rally his supporters to vote for Biden at the convention and after and then go back to Vermont smug in the knowledge that he is Still Right even though he is a loser.

    He was done before he even got started.

    The king makers and the ones with real power in the democratic party doesn't want a socialist, the vast majority of Americans don't want a socialist, and the ones who do (young brainwashed kids) either don't show up to vote or are to young to vote.

    That and Bernie simply doesn't have an aggressive enough nature to win elections.

    I came here to make this comment (also heard Shapiro), apparently NOBODY likes her.

    The idea that there are some people sitting plush offices in D.C. deciding who's going to run for president, in either party, is risible.

    Evidently the youth vote was busy sleeping in this year. I don't know if it was here or somewhere else, but the current joke is that #ohwasthattoday ??? is really trending.

    I'm not buying the Michelle Obama, "Democratic Party Savior" routine. I just don't see it.

    (Maybe because I don't want to see it. What's next? Ellen? Rosie? Arsenio Hall?)
