    They need to focus more on why they would make good presidents than try to nitpick the Democratic party.

    That's the point.

    I would recommend that all 23-24 candidates get in a “smoke filled, back room,” and exit behind the best candidate and work toward getting that candidate elected.

    Yep, otherwise too much precious funding and air time gets wasted on the (far too) many "also rans". The more time that they waste on proclaiming how "not Trump-like" they are then the less time they have left (pun intended) to outdo each other's promises to expand the federal government's power and expense to previously unimaginable levels.

    Not unlike a certain current president who has a hard on to invade Iran.

    Isn't that pretty much how we the sheeple got offered Hillary vs. Bernie in the DNC 2016 primary race?

    Is your point that only the party elites should do the winnowing of the field of primary candidates and that having even two "frontrunners" is one too many?

    Two dozen choices at this stage of the game is too many; what a waste of resources. Money should not matter in politics, but that is where we are and have been for...ever. We the sheeple are too worried with crapola, like how big Kim Kardashian's butt is. Congress has ceded power/authority for to long and are spineless to take it back.

    If you have to resort to insults, name calling, ad hominem attacks, straw men, red herrings, appeals to authority, and other dirty debate tactics, the veracity of you argument is questionable.
