Do y’all think last night’s debate changed anyone’s mind? I don’t. But it occurred to me that both the Clinton and Sanders campaigns are a tribute to President Obama in their own ways.
Perhaps learning the lesson that eluded Al Gore in 2000, the Clinton camp has no intention of running away from a popular (within his own party) two-term president and packages Hillary Clinton as the git-er-done guardian of the Obama administration’s accomplishments.
Team Bernie is hope and change redux, offering a political revolution to overcome the stalemate in DC but with money in politics the target this time rather than the partisan divide as in 2008.
I looked at some of the pundit hot takes this morning, and many are giving the edge to Sanders. I thought it was pretty even. Will it make a difference?
