At Politico Ryan Lizza has some words of encouragement for the Democrats. Sort of. Your field is so screwed up that even Joe Biden could ultimately prevail:
Democrats don’t have an obvious candidate who they can rally around. Indecision is the most common theme I encountered among voters at more than a dozen events in New Hampshire since Friday. (Perhaps this should have been more obvious when even The New York Times editorial board couldn’t pick a single candidate.) There’s no reason to think the choice will get easier after Tuesday.
What’s driving the indecision is not a plethora of great choices, but the fact that there are seven candidates in the mix, each of whom has at least one very serious flaw.
There is no candidate who can deliver the kind of knockout punch that defined some previous Democratic primary races, such as Al Gore’s 2000 win and John Kerry’s 2004 win, when they each won Iowa and New Hampshire and never looked back. There’s some chance the race could gradually narrow to a two-person fight, as happened in 2008 (Obama vs. Clinton) and 2016 (Sanders vs. Clinton), but New Hampshire is unlikely to clarify who those two candidates are.
After sketching just what some of those flaws are he concludes:
And so Biden will get a second chance if he passes the one 2020 test he set for himself long ago: winning South Carolina. Plausible!
He’s actually making the argument for a convention in which the party leadership discards the primary results and selects the party’s presidential candidate. Plan C!
Under Plan C the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate wouldn’t even need to be someone who actually ran in any primaries. It could be but it wouldn’t need to be. It could be Hillary Clinton. It could be Oprah. It could be practically anybody.
