A typical article of progressive inertia (the inability of progressives to believe that a progressive can actually win) establishing defeatism posing as optimism.
In short what a crock. This article leaves you thinking this >>> Bernie made a great run but we know he really can't win the race.
Bullsh...um... bullshush (? whatever but you know that kind of works...lol) BULLSHUSH I think Bernie is winning fast as can be... Amazingly fast in fact this early in the race.
Bernie has not been given a fair shake by the media after his initial surge in popularity made editors and media big wigs send down the word that reporting on Bernie's growing popularity and big crowds was only making things worse.
So now the media report on Trump's big crowds but no equal time for Bernie. Know why? It's because the media expects Trump to fade in popularity over the next few months as his big mouth shoots himself in the foot and people figure out that he is fun but too nutty to be trusted as president.
On the other hand the media figures that Bernie will only keep growing in popularity and if they don't watch out, the Bern will end up running in an obvious shut out. So as yet they help Hillary survive till the nomination run off anyway.
Obviously the dems figure Hillary won't pull it out and brought up Biden to make the contest less obvious as Hillary's numbers plummet and Bernie's continue to soar. Imagine a party old guard mainstay, the VP nobody remembers is still VP, as competition for Bernie? The dems are desperate and it is looking like they are jumping ship on Hillary a bit.
No matter. This article reflects the mainstream view that a true progressive can't actually be a real candidate. This article is suggesting that Bernie will lose in the end but the facts show otherwise.
Progressive inertia... they just can't imagine a progressive can actually win.
Go Bernie... ya' got em babbling pap.
I'm keeping the Bullshush expletive btw...lol
