Why the Democrats Are So Desperate

The conventional wisdom is that Joe Biden is considering a presidential run because Hillary Clinton’s campaign is scandal-plagued, mostly over the handling of classified emails. But the prospect of Bernie Sanders winning the Democratic presidential nomination has to be regarded as even more of a serious problem for Democrats. Sanders is so loony and far-left that he could easily be portrayed by the opposition as not just a “democratic socialist,” which he claims to be, but a hard-core communist with a bizarre spiritual adviser.

On a left-wing website called Reader Supported News, writer Steve Weissman frets that Sanders will be the target of a “red-baiting campaign,” in the same way that Jeremy Corbyn has been exposed in Britain. Corbyn, a socialist, is hoping to lead Britain’s Labor Party. He refuses to deny being a Marxist and has the support of communists. Weissman wants Corbyn and Sanders to stand up for “twenty-first century socialism” and take on their critics.
