What a Difference a Day Makes

It was only a couple of weeks ago when people were telling Joe Biden quietly how he could end his campaign with dignity. He lost to a gay guy, a devout communist, and a fake Indian. Hang in and win South Carolina, and if Super Tuesday went against him, bow out gracefully.

Behind the curtain, the Democrats were working hard to get Mayor Pete Buttigieg and Senator Amy Klobuchar to exit by Super Tuesday so Biden would take their votes. They agreed and endorsed Biden. That boosted Biden’s fortunes. Ms. Warren would have no part of that for she saw herself as a viable contender. Bloomberg seems to be on an authoritative ego trip. Bloomberg flailed on the debate stage when he actually had to step out from behind the reputational facade. All the bogus advertisements endorsing the Green Agenda failed with his 2-litre bottle of soda ban. He assumed he could just buy the White House. Thank God his ego got the best of him. So the Billionaire Bloomberg on Wednesday dropped out of the Democratic presidential race and plans to endorse former Vice President Joseph R. Biden. Only when he began to see his reputation was being destroyed did he change his mind.

And many in the party are beside themselves with Sanders on the ticket. The best way to stop Bernie was to push Biden up but they are not happy with him either. They still look to the rules that if Biden can stop Bernie on a first ballot, then everyone is free to vote for Hillary. This plan may be the final straw that breaks the back of the Democratic Party. Nevertheless, the best plans of mice and men some time do work out. Are they also playing Biden for the fool on the hill?
