Joe Biden just won the South Carolina primary decisively on Saturday.
Pete Buttigieg dropped out on Sunday and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) dropped out today. Both have said they will be endorsing Biden. You know that there was some arm twisting happening with them behind the scenes, with both likely being promised by the establishment things for getting out now and maximizing Biden’s numbers on Super Tuesday to try to block out Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
But it remains to be seen as to whether that will be enough. While Buttigieg has a bit of a constituency, Klobuchar’s numbers weren’t much and she was actually competing with Sanders for delegates in Minnesota. This might mean more there for Sanders.
But Biden still may have an uphill battle, given Sanders’ lead in places like California.
Plus Joe is still Joe and these folks who were battling him but just endorsed him must just be saying to themselves, “what the heck” when they see him gaffe up a storm.
Today, Joe took on the Declaration of Independence. He lost. Badly.
He started off alright but then it went downhill.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, all men and women created by the go you know the, you know the thing.”
Yikes. How do you forget the Declaration of Independence and more specifically the basic concept that all men are created equal?
Imagine this guy in a debate on prime time TV with Donald Trump.

But this is the guy they’ve placed their hopes on, not only to beat Bernie but to try to beat Trump.

The Democratic establishment is in deep doo right now.
