Indeed. I've been hanging out in a twitch political channel and discord lately, that tends to lean pretty far left. Ok, really far left. The discourse I see there, and the social media they often reference indicates that.. yeah, snapping defeat from jaws of victory could easily be a *thing* if the voices I hear there happen to be representative of a large bloc of the party. Anecdotal evidence I see on a regular basis, such as the Politico article thus referenced, indicates that may be the case.

I hope it isn't. At this point, I'd just like to get a flawed president that doesn't do anything terribly stupid and appoints a reasonably competent cabinet. Some days it feels like too much to ask for.

Had been expecting that. We'll see how it goes, I guess. He should suck all the air out of Harris at least, which is probably good as the idea of a Californian winning over enough heartland to beat Trump seemed iffy to me. I'm a bit shaky on Bernie this time as well, though I think he could have won 2016, each race is different. I'm disappointed that Warren's campaign thus far seems to lack any dynamism, as she has by far the most robust policy platform. Of course, people often don't get elected that way, which is a pity because Warren has at least demonstrated a solid grasp of understanding complex issues.

Is it wishful thinking that return to normality in politics might happen?

I watched some of Dem's primary debates... it was a collective political suicide pact. Even Biden jumped off the bridge.

This looks better and better for Trump.
