Shut up, he explained.
A reality-based explanation of reality from The Democratic Strategist...
Magellan Strategies polled over 1000 likely 2012 Democratic presidential primary voters, and didn't find much in the way of an uprising, at least as measured by hypothetical primary matchups. You may recall that Hillary Clinton won NH in 2008. She's not about to challenge Obama in 2012, but according to Magellan, if she did, she'd be trailing 59-28. There's been talk of Howard Dean taking on the president; he trails Obama in the poll 78-10. How's about Bernie Sanders, who filibustered the tax deal that upset progressive elites so badly? He'd be in even worse shape in NH, down 79-8 to the president.Clear? Crystal.
I get the frustration. Heck, I thought Ted Kennedy sounded like a pretty good idea in 1980. Making the same mistake twice, though, however well intentioned, has never made anything better.
Enough primary talk already.
