Shifting Sands

Amy Klobuchar has been my tentative choice for the Democratic nominee for president but is no longer because, as Jennifer Rubin persuasively pointed out in one of her recent Washington Post columns, there is no longer any chance that Klobuchar can win the most delegates. Her remaining in the race increases the chances that Bernie will win, and I’m among those who believe that Bernie would  probably lose the election to Trump. I like Amy, but too many voters prefer someone else. And at this point Amy should too.

I wrote the above paragraph last night. Reading it over this morning, I’m not so sure I’m right that Bernie is as likely to lose as the punditocracy thinks. The future looks more murky than ever. Tonight’s debate will probably be the most contentious yet.
