The field narrows to two viable candidates.
Former hopeful plays an awkward race card.
Black voters overwhelmingly vote for Biden on Super Tuesday.
Obama maintains his silence.
(NewsReady.com) – The most fitting analogy one can make to the presidential primary election process is the Civil War. Republican or Democrat, they insult each other, attack their opponents’ prior political careers and generally try to find any way possible to the top of the heap. As the race continues, other politicians decide which side of the line in the sand they’ll stand on.
A Woman Who’s Worn Many Hats
The former First Lady/Senator (D-NY)/Secretary of State/Democratic Party Presidential Candidate Hillary Clinton (that has to be hard to fit on a business card!) has claimed she was remaining neutral in the faceoff between former Vice President Joe Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders (D-VT). However, her definition of that word might not align perfectly with the dictionary.
During an appearance on The Tonight Show post-Super Tuesday, she was complimenting Biden pretty exclusively for a woman who’s not taking sides. Describing him as a “deeply decent person” and someone who does not take “cheap shots” in an effort to build himself up by tearing another down. Obviously she was implying those were tactics she felt Sanders used against her in the 2016 Democratic primaries.
Those who watch Jimmy Fallon’s show are familiar with his penchant for playing some kind of game with his primary guest. In this version, he had her drawing the names of past and present candidates for president and commenting on them. One card she immediately threw away and the only names left unspoken were Sanders and Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI).
The Mayor of The US Metropolis
New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio added his two-cents worth during television appearance on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. In a controversial statement, he said the sole reason Biden dominated among black voters was because of his connection to Barack Obama. He went on to describe how that demographic is ignorant of Biden’s body of work as a politician. The idea that black voters wouldn’t research candidates before casting their ballot was decried as demeaning and insulting on social media.
As this process winds its way to the July convention in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, more politicians are going to throw in with one or the other, just as all the recently departed hopefuls have endorsed Biden, save only Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) who has declined to back either man. The loudest affirmation heard above all others is the complete silence coming from the Obamas.
