Mike’s Musings

Random thoughts, opinions, ideas and prognostications on the day's events.

As I write this, Joe Biden is in fifth place in New Hampshire. That is not good news for the Biden campaign nor the Democratic Party. No one expected the former Vice President to win Bernie Sander’s home state but a fifth-place finish? He is already having trouble raising cash. After this performance, Sleepy Joe might have difficulty raising dust. The media has already been writing Biden’s political epitaph, and they are just waiting for his doomed campaign to give up the ghost. 

Mayor Pete and Amy Klobuchar are the flavors of the week coming out of New Hampshire. Of the two, Amy is by far the more palatable, but her staying power will depend on whether she can distinguish herself going forward as well as she did in the debate. Senator Klobuchar tentatively raised her hand to be the lone candidate to say that she did indeed have a problem with a Socialist heading the Democratic ticket. That gesture represented what many in her party are thinking but are too afraid of the far-left base to say. Her surge came right after the debate and that one small action was a big part of that, in my opinion. 

The real winner last night, however, was not even on the ballot. He was not on the debate stage last week. Michael Bloomberg could not have had a better night. With no clear front-runner now the Democrats are looking at the very real possibility of a brokered convention. With moderates feeling disenfranchised and the far left feeling cheated once again by the DNC’s most significant problem might not be Donald Trump, but rather their voter turnout.
