in SC for the last few weeks, especially targeting AA voters, but it didn't seem to pan out as well as it could have for him.

If he does respectably in California, Minnesota, Maine, and Massachusetts (with the possibility of doing OK in Vermont) then he's got a basis to stay in this.

Wednesday is going to be a day of reckoning for at least half of those still in the running.

One big way in which Pete is underrated is in his political acumen, which in my opinion exceeds that of any other candidate in the race. Ditto his emotional strength and the depth of his character. Not to mention his fresh vision. (My big beef with the 3 Late-Septuagenarians is that each of them is fundamentally backward-looking, at a time when we urgently need to be looking forward). He is a class act all the way. Please may Pete and his vision for the country prevail.
(PS There are plenty of surprises ahead in this race. Anyone who thinks it's now down to Sanders and Biden will be proved wrong).
