All 2020 Democrats Are Cool with Having Democratic Socialist at the Top of the Ticket
It was a very telling moment during the New Hampshire debate when George Stephanopoulos asked all the candidates on stage if they were concerned about having a Democratic Socialist at the top of the Democratic ticket in November, and everyone appeared to hesitate to raise their hand.
That is, until Bernie Sanders raised his hand to say: "I'm not."
Amy Klobuchar raised her hand after a few seconds, but quickly put it down.
And why would they? As PJM's managing editor Paula Bolyard noted on Twitter, "2020 Dems have sold their souls to the socialist wing of the party, refusing to lay a finger on Bernie. Stephanopoulos (a party man if there ever was one) is giving them every opportunity to disavow socialism and to a man (and woman) they've all taken a hard pass."
