And so we ask . . .
WILL TONIGHT'S FIERY DEBATE WEAKEN DEMOCRATIC PARTY RESOLVE AND DAMAGE THE 2020 CONTENDER IN MUCH THE SAME WAY BERNIE BROS HOBBLED HILLARY IN 2016?!?!
Of course Prez Trump has his problems but to deny his enduring popularity is to ignore American political reality and write-off at least half of all voters.
As we look on tonight, let's not forget that Kansas City exists as a Democratic Party stronghold in the middle of two very "red" states and that might skew some perceptions. Nevertheless, as progressives now make inroads into Johnson County, there's hope to build upon the "Blue Wave" in the Midterm election. There's also a very obvious concern that no real Democratic Party leader has emerged to challenge the President and all of these fringe candidates might only hurt the chances of the eventual 2020 Democratic Party Presidential nominee.
