Desperate Democrats

Ever get the feeling that this field of Democrats running for the 2020 nomination just isn't that strong? Turns out, you're not alone.

It seems even Democratic leaders themselves, who once lauded this group's diversity and depth, are starting to see the glaring weaknesses in the leading candidates. Reports are that party leaders are concerned over Joe Biden's less-than-impressive debate performances and having to put out fires over his son's dealings in Ukraine. They are also worried that socialist candidates Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren are too radical to win.

I guess this is what happens when your main party platform is "We hate Trump."
