Bernie Sanders can’t win. Literally and figuratively. (That’s not a bad thing, necessarily, if you ask me).
Political insiders say that Sanders’ relatively gracious approach so far hasn’t worked. But they also say he faces significant risks if he goes too negative against Mrs. Clinton. Joe Trippi, a Democratic strategist, states that “It doesn’t seem to me that there’s any winning strategy in the debate for Bernie Sanders. If he beats the living daylights out of her, I don’t see him taking votes away from her.”
This, for Bernie, must be mindful of the old Woody Allen line: “Mankind is at a crossroads. One road leads to hopelessness and despair…the other to utter destruction. Let us hope we have the wisdom to choose correctly.”
The Sanders campaign is right as regards one thing. The Clinton Coronation is a fait accompli.
