Meaning it hasn’t changed the fact that Sanders is the front runner. And, stronger than ever

As @paulmitche11  told me: “someone might think they can dive into CA after SC, but it could be a very shallow pool after upwards of 40-45% of the state’s Dem voters have already returned their ballots."

So the DNC twisted itself in knots to appease Bernie camp (new caucus rules, new superdelegates rules) and, what’d ya know, it’s done nothing to ‘unify’ the party...

Lots of fireworks last night in Vegas but it didn't do anything to undermine Sanders' status as frontrunner.

In a Dem primary that has been obsessed w/ 'electability" the best way to prove you are a winner is to win. Sanders has been winning.

The cornovirus may cause economic pain as well. But, given that Trump's job approval rating has been averaging around 42-44% during a very good economy, what's to say that his job approval rating would budge that much in a slowdown?

I'm trying to imagine what Trump would have done had May come to US, sat down with NYT and said "I think Trump's doing the wrong thing on NAFTA' oh and "I really like that Hillary Clinton, she would have been a good president."

Still waiting for NFL to fine teams whose players commit domestic abuse.

Rs had a huge structural advantage going into 2018. The fact that Ds may net 40 seats is a rout. Period. This argument that it’s not as bad as Obama’s 63 seat loss in 2010 is laughable.

My neck is still sore from whiplash in watching Rs who attacked Obama as ‘leading from behind’ and not being tough enough on our enemies, now bend over backward to rationalize Russian election interference as no big deal.

Dear young aspiring journalists, the reason for the outpouring of sadness and love for Cokie Roberts isn’t just b/c she was smart and really good at what she did. Her humanity set her apart. She didn’t sacrifice it for her job.
