6. I hate to bring up the obvious, but ...

... "Nobody is better positioned to take on Donald Trump. Sanders has name recognition and widespread popularity. He knows how to campaign well, has a network of organizers, and can pack stadiums. He does well at town halls and in debates against Republicans."

That's exactly what we heard in 2016 - and yet he never came close to winning the primary.

Apparently the majority of Democratic voters want something more substantive than a candidate who can "pack stadiums" - a skill that never translated into actual votes.

Just sayin' is all.
