Maybe Hillary Clinton and the corporate Democrats can survive Bernie Sanders until mid March and the Illinois primary.
When she gets to Illinois she will have to make a decision. She will have to ask herself, “Do I want to have a photo-op with the most hated mayor in America?”
Will she even come to Chicago?
It was only a couple of years ago that the Mayor was floating his name as a possible presidential candidate.
Looking back, it is hard to even imagine.
A few months ago I was thinking that if Hillary got elected they would give Rahm a cabinet seat to get him out of town.
Now, Hillary can’t even afford to be seen with him.
Frankly, if the national Democrats are going to avoid this dilemma they need to push the guy off the stage pretty damn soon.
It’s true. It can’t be a surprise that I will be voting for my friends running as Sanders’ delegates.
Sanders has made it clear he has no use for Rahm Emanuel.
But the odds still favor Hillary getting the nomination. Of course, the odds have been wrong before.
And then there is November.
Do the Democrats really want to run nationally as the party of Rahm Emanuel?
