    Perfect storm:

    1) A front-runner, highly unlikable, quite possibly indicted or pardoned, considered untrustworthy by many even in her own party.

    2) A challenger who the party pros consider unelectable and will do everything to prevent him from getting the nomination.

    3) Supporters of the challenger who are clearly seeing the party has stacked things against them: http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/4179556/

    4) If front-runner indicted, party likely to name an an alternate, most likely Biden, and will change the rules if needed to put him in.

    5) If Sanders runs as an independent, write-in, not enough votes. Damages Democrat Party.

    6) If Sanders sits out, so will his supporters. Damages Democrat Party.

    7) Will the "blue dog" moderates pick-up the pieces after the progressives tank the party?

    Socal. You're no Bob Schieffer and had you bothered to watch the video, you'd have seen Schieffer speculates that both parties may be tearing themselves apart (though the lack of civility within the GOP is clearly far more marked).

    Nothing against Bob Schieffer in this case, but the one-sided title from the hidden, institutionalized RJ member.

    Nahhh... unlike the present republican party. Democrats always come back home to support the chosen candidate.
