But only one will get to run against President Donald Trump in November.POLITICO Magazine asked 15 experts, insiders, activists and political professionals to watch and tell us what this debate meant, in particular, for Sanders, who trails Biden in the delegate count and confronts, to put it mildly, an improbable path to the Democratic nomination.

Reflections on a Failed Democratic Revolution

Reflections on a Failed Democratic RevolutionBerniecrats, I know how you are feeling. I know how much that gut punch hurt. I know what it’s like to be convinced you’re about to upend the political order, only to be brutally informed on an election night that the rest of your own party doesn’t share your plans.How could I—a hack political pundit from the corporate media, who has been droning on for months about how the Democratic Party is more moderate than you think—be so empathetic to your plight?Because 16 years ago, at the spry age of 31, I was a wide-eyed liberal blogger who felt that my scribbles on LiberalOasis.com were playing a small part in changing American politics, only to find my mouth agape at the shellacking that my antiwar, anti-Democratic establishment candidate, Howard Dean, took in the Iowa caucuses.The Deaniac left recovered from that disorienting night. We stayed in…

What Is Trump Without His Crowds?

What Is Trump Without His Crowds?Suspended schedules. Darkened stages. Empty arenas.As the worsening spread of the coronavirus has forced shot callers in sports, entertainment and politics to nix games, parades, conventions, campaign pitstops and gatherings of almost every sort and size, Donald Trump over these last few dizzying days essentially and begrudgingly has made the same decision—even if he hasn’t made an official announcement.After holding more than 300 rallies during the 2016 campaign and nearly 100 more since he was elected—after going last month toIowa and New Hampshire and Nevada and South Carolina to “troll” Democrats in the run-ups to the primaries—the president was not in Michigan, Missouri or Mississippi this past week, and he won’t be in Ohio or Illinois or Florida or Arizona ahead of Tuesday’s votes. He has canceled events in Las Vegas, Denver and Milwaukee. And for the first time in a long, long time, Trump…
