THE DEMS JUST KEEP
Events have proven the truth of my own misjudgment. As I wrote recently…
“Drawing conclusions from early primary elections is always risky, because states vary. A candidate who flops in one region can perform impressively in another part of the country. And in politics a couple of months is an eternity.
“A lot can change.”
That has certainly been shown to be true, and I should have stopped there. Instead, I wrote…
“Nevertheless, after Iowa and New Hampshire, things aren’t looking good for Joe Biden. There’s enough of a geographic spread between those two states to give the impression that ‘momentum’ — the elusive sense people impute to a politician’s progress on the campaign trail — has abandoned him.”
And, wouldn’t you know it, now “good old Joe from Scranton” is the front-runner.
