The State of the Race: Handicapping the Surviving Dems
Is this when it finally gets nasty?
The Democratic debates -- and there have been eight of them so far -- have been mostly staid affairs. There have been few fireworks between the candidates, and even those were premeditated hit jobs like the one Kamala Harris unleashed on Joe Biden last summer. It was a desperate move and did nothing to pique voter interest in Harris for more than a week.
Bernie Sanders has pulled enough punches -- actually a replay of his huge pulled punch against Hillary Clinton and her Email Server of Doom in 2016 -- that it made me wonder if he has the fire it takes to win the White House. (See the "Sanders Apologizes" link below.)
