    No but he will move trust worthy Hillery to the left.

    Not sure she crashed and burned as much as obama literally ignited.

    Not necessarily. A depressed base = fewer votes.

    I do not see Clinton moving leftward, no matter who else runs for the democratic nomination. She is too well defined now for the most part and any such move would look phoney anyway. Most likely, she does not need to move leftward, and especially not because of Sanders who likely will get a small portion of the vote.

    I don't see anybody coming close to Hillary. Though, it would be nice to see at least a little competition there. I enjoy Primary debates. Always the best gaffes.

    :raises eyebrow: did you miss the paeans to Warren, the decision to emphasize income inequality, the barfed-up attempt to produce a soundbite against "trickle down economics", etc? She's also done the full 180 from her couple-of-years-ago position on marriage, and is pushing the SSM message pretty solidly. Hillary's been trying to secure her left flank for a couple of months now.

    Nah. There have only been three gaffe's in primary debate history:

    1. Obama denouncing Hillary's individual health insurance mandate as too punitive
    2. um.....Ron Paul fan hollering "let him die"....
    3. Um..... um..... uh......

    Warren is unlikely to be a serious challenge, and while income inequality is more of a new framing of an issue, like the stance on trickle down economics, has been part of her stance for pretty much ever. Her position on SSM, I do not know why or even if she really changed it.

    Unless Democrats can pull a big one over the rest of us and somehow convince us he's just a liberal, no.

    Of course he can't win it. However, I'm also being snarky toward the Warren wing calling anyone moderate a conservative and anyone liberal a moderate.
