Democratic leaders are urging Bernie Sanders to drop out of the race fearing he is undermining Hillary Clinton’s chance to defeat Donald Trump
Democratic leaders are starting to get a little bit worried because that pesky little socialist Senator from Vermont is hanging on in the race to dethrone the pre-primary presumptive nominee Hillary Clinton. With Donald Trump all but securing the Republican nomination some Democratic leaders are now urging Bernie Sanders to drop out of the race fearing that by continuing in the race he is undermining the party leaders’ chosen one to defeat the billionaire businessman.
Here is more:
Democratic Party leaders are upping the pressure on Bernie Sanders to drop his presidential campaign, alarmed that his continued presence is undermining efforts to beat the presumptive Republican nominee, Donald Trump, and again win the White House.
“I don’t think they think of the downside of this,” said Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., a supporter of front-runner Hillary Clinton and broker of the post-primary peace between Clinton and then-Illinois Sen. Barack Obama in 2008.
“It’s actually harmful because she can’t make that general-election pivot the way she should,” Feinstein said. “Trump has made that pivot.”
Donald Trump has now made the pivot to the general election while Hillary Clinton cannot make the pivot because she continues to struggle to throw off a challenge which was unexpected when the primary season opened.
What I find the most interesting about this whole scenario is that this is not the way it was supposed to happen, at least according to the mainstream media and the political pundits–but I repeat myself.
According to those people supposedly in the know the huge Republican field was supposed to create chaos within the Republican party which would destroy the party and hand an easy victory to Hillary Clinton. Meanwhile the Democratic primary was supposed to be the coronation of Hillary Clinton as the first woman to be nominated by a major party.
But is has turned out to be the exact opposite: while the Republican party might still split over the nomination of Donald Trump the signs are beginning to appear that make it look as if this will not happen. The party leaders are beginning to coalesce around the presumptive nominee while it is the Democratic party which is facing a revolt with its membership.
If there is any good to come from this race it might be the fact that most of the American people are waking up to the fact that the mainstream media is not in the business of reporting the news but rather is in the business of shaping the news and public opinion. If the mainstream media’s agenda had been met we would already have nominated Jeb Bush and Hillary Clinton but we are seeing what could amount to the final dissolution of the mainstream media’s influence in American politics.
