8. That's been the plan all along

 

Rather than allowing a few "king makers" decide behind closed doors at Party Central, every single candidate gets their 15 minutes of face-time before they drop out of the race. A few will last quite a bit longer than 15 minutes, but most will not.

The way it was done in the past, and I'm talking about the "behind closed doors" part, did not sit well with the Democratic factions. It led to the Bernie/Hillary split of 2016 which seriously damaged our Party and our chances to win the election.

I say let's give this a chance. We're still early in the process and everyone needs to be heard now. The winnowing will happen soon enough.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
