    Sanders, who represents a state where 95% of the population is white, didn't attract very many black voters in 2016. He will need their support if he expects to win in 2020. Will they "feel the Bern," as his slogan says, or will Sanders just wind up getting burned again?

    Can Bernie Sanders re-create the magic? Vermont Senator launches Presidential bid.

    In 2002, investigative reporter Greg Palast wrote a book titled The Best Democracy Money Can Buy, which dealt in part with the 2000 Presidential election. It does seem that in most elections the winner is the candidate who spent the most money campaigning. Look who this year's early money-raising champion is:

    The NBC News site just posted an essay by a former aide to Hillary Clinton. We can call this a Negative Bernie Critique.

    Bernie Sanders' 2020 presidential campaign will face the scrutiny Clinton got in 2016. Here's what voters missed.
    The media didn't consider him a real contender the last time, so what press he got was largely positive. That's about to change.

    Who says we voters don't have a choice? We do. The favored Democratic candidates right now are a 76-year-old white man and a 77-year-old white man. Oh, wait.......

    Here is an analysis by CNN's Jeff Zeleny and Kaitlan Collins:

    Donald Trump's plan for 2020 Democrats: Cause chaos and sow division

    https://www.cnn.com/2019/02/22/polit...ary/index.html

    "Cause chaos and sow confusion." In other words, Trump wants the Democratic party to be just like the Republican party.

    The Washington Post just released its newest quarterly ranking of the top 15 Democratic Presidential candidates -- even though only ten have announced their candidacy. The top three: Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg isn't on the list. I'm shocked. Shocked, I tell you!

    Yes, Sanders is raising a lot of money -- but I don't think a majority of voters will view the 77-year-old white man as the best candidate for the Democratic party in 2020.

    Bigger is not better. Small dollars online are gold for Democrats taking on Trump.
    Bernie Sanders has a head start on the rest of the 2020 primary field. They'll have to catch up quick.

    Bernie Sanders needs to move left
    He no longer stands out now that Democrats have all embraced his ideas.

    CNN's Wolf Blitzer today hosted a televised Town Hall meeting with Bernie Sanders. Blitzer asked, "If you're the Democratic Presidential nominee and you're on the debate stage with President Trump, how will you engage with him?" Sanders' response drew laughter and then applause: "Well, we'll bring a lie detector along. That will be the first thing." Trump's non-stop lying would probably cause the machine to overheat and explode, though.

    I think this makes 11 Democratic candidates so far. Maybe 12. I'm not really sure. I think I've lost count.

    Today in his home town, Bernie Sanders held the first rally of his second Presidential campaign. His next rally will be in Chicago. He predicts he will win the Democratic nomination and then the White House. The election is only 611 days, 12 hours and 45 minutes away. Wow!

    Back in Brooklyn, Sanders predicts White House win in 2020
