" 'Democratic political professionals believe that nominating a self-proclaimed democratic socialist is a recipe for disaster for their side.' The reality is that on the non-zero chance that he might win [the presidency], it would be a recipe for disaster for everyone, not just for Democrats." #QotD


'There are lots and lots of longtime Democratic political professionals who believe that nominating a self-proclaimed democratic socialist is a recipe for disaster for their side.' What these political professionals are worried about is that Sanders may end up losing in a landslide and then lose the House and the Senate at the same time because there is still a toxic phobic reaction to socialism. The reality is that on the non-zero chance that he might win, it would be a recipe for disaster for everyone, not just for Democrats. A catastrophe both economically and politically."
