I don't see him as a populist actually, just a Dem with some sack.
I hope he eventually runs for the WH.
Trouble is, I wish he'd run in 2020.
Trump and any other Repub would be toast.
We've seen that play Jeff.
I doubt very much that the corporate wing of the party would let him. If recent history is a guide they would certainly put the fix in on the fight.
Possibly but I think it also depends on whether they want to chalk up another loss.
2010 - 2014 - 2016...
2018? 2020? Can a party actually sustain five major losses of that magnitude?
Like was said, keeping their staterooms while going down with the ship. But sometimes seeing the water line actually traverse the portholes in your stateroom provides impetus in the right direction for a change, especially when you start to realize that the other guys already took all the lifeboats.
