Weimerica Weekly - Hunt For The Beige Bernie

New Weimerica Weekly is up at Social matter. I cover the desperate hunt on the Left for Bernie policies coming out of the mouth of a beige puppet. Obama is their model but how many Obamas are there?

I remember in stories from 2005, they made it seem like it was a done deal that Barack Obama was going to be a presidential candidate. I think they even made it in 2004 because I remember him quipping "Let me win my senate election first!" I did not see any of that for Kamala Harris. I still think the DNC and the media will push Harris hard eventually but while it seemed like Obama was being considered almost right away, Harris not so much. As you point out, people are still looking to Obama, Clinton, and Sanders, not Harris. That time will come though when Obama drags her along to events and starts hinting that she could be the one.

Another thing to note is that the luster of voting for the first minority candidate won't be there in 2020. It can't just be another clean cut black man; they need to increase the intersectionality. Cory Booker's time has come and gone. The DNC is still going to want to push a woman candidate but preferably a non-white woman candidate. Harris seems to fit the profile of where the DNC is heading after the 2016 loss.
