Nightmare Vision

So, seeking wisdom, I took myself into the desert on a vision quest. (That explains the lack of posts.) And, after several days of starvation, I saw a nightmare vision . . . the Democrats' primary schedule.

Because, if Tuesday isn't decisive for the Democratic nomination, and it's becoming increasingly likely that it won't be . . . then this thing could go on for quite a while. Like on to the Pennsylvania primary , on April 22. Can you imagine if the race is still going on then? The pundits will be reduced to babbling . . . "Experience . . . inspiring . . . experience . . . help us! help us!"

And there are May, even June primaries.

If that happens, then a national primary becomes much more likely. Because no one wants to be discussing this in May. I know that the pundits think they want a "brokered convention." But that means we're still talking about the Democratic nomination in July!

Oh, why can't I have a happy vision?

Perhaps the scariest part of the schedule is the solid month between Mississippi's primary on 3/10 and the Pennsylvania primary on 4/22.

Pennsylvania has a lot of delegates. If it's still competitive at that stage, it will be month-long trench warfare in that one state.

And will poor Democratic donors have any money left to contribute for the general election?

You are freaking me out. Let's hope that Tuesday is decisive one way or the other. You have described the worst case scenario.

Obviously you've been spending a lot of time with Saint Frances of Mississippi...
