I don't disagree that Bernie has made a number of errors. I was just pointing out one in particular that was critical to the votes on Super Tuesday. Sanders could have stopped Joe this week if Bernie had blunted Joe's momentum coming out of South Carolina. It was a serious tactical error.

Prior to South Carolina, the speculation was that Sanders was going to run away with Super Tuesday. The overwhelming Biden win in South Carolina showed that Joe can win, and win big. It gave his campaign a shot in the arm at just the right moment. And it changed the psychology of the election. Bernie could have prevented this by putting more resources into South Carolina. I think it was a critical tactical error on the part of Sanders. Anyway, I do not disagree with any of your other points.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
