"Is There Anybody Else?:" Democrats Panicking Over Weak and Vulnerable (and Socialist!) Candidates;
Hillary Clinton Telling Friends She Might Join The Race, If She Thinks She Can Win

Didn't she already win in 2016? Isn't she actually the President?

She keeps claiming that, I thought.

The New York Times reports on fear and desperation for a candidate who isn't an ancient socialist with a decaying mind.

So who do you turn to? Why, Hillary Clinton of course.

I mean, obviously.

I understand she's popular with the NeverTrump set.

When a half-dozen Democratic donors gathered at the Whitby Hotel in Manhattan last week, the dinner began with a discussion of which presidential candidates the contributors liked. But as conversations among influential Democrats often go these days, the meeting quickly evolved into a discussion of who was not in the race -- but could be lured in.

...

"Since the last debate, just anecdotally, I've had five or six people ask me: 'Is there anybody else?'" said Leah Daughtry, a longtime Democrat who has run two of the party's recent conventions.

[D]emocratic leaders are engaging in a familiar rite: fretting about who is in the race and longing for a white knight to enter the contest at the last minute.

OMG I can't even with the racism

...

"There's more anxiety than ever," said Connie Schultz, a journalist who is married to Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio, another Democrat who some in the party would like to see join the race. "We're both getting the calls. I've been surprised by some who've called me."

One caller? A man doing a bad French accent identifying himself as Pierre Delecto and asking, "Does Sherrod think my wife is attractive? Would it bring him the delight to sex her?"

...

Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Bloomberg have both told people privately in recent weeks that if they thought they could win, they would consider entering the primary -- but that they were skeptical there would be an opening, according to Democrats who have spoken with them.

Former Secretary of State John F. Kerry, who associates say has wondered aloud about whether he should have run and has found it hard to watch Mr. Biden's missteps, has also been urged to get in.....

Another Obama administration official who weighed a campaign at the start of the year, former Attorney General Eric Holder, is considering a last-minute entry but has conceded it may be too late, according to a Democrat familiar with his thinking.

...

Democrats who have recently spoken with Mrs. Clinton say she shares the same concerns other party elites have about the field -- worried about Mr. Biden's durability, Ms. Warren's liberal politics and unsure of who else can emerge to take on Mr. Trump. But these people, who spoke anonymously to discuss private conversations, say she enjoys the freedom that comes with not being on the ballot.

The article says that those close to Clinton and Bloomberg -- presumably those authorized to leak to the press on their behalf -- say that they would only get into the race if Biden was badly weakened.

He's not badly weakened already?

Have you seen him? Motherfucker's eye is pissing blood and he's eating his own teeth.

Deval Patrick -- Knock-Off Obama From Another Mama -- is also hinting that he might run.

Below, the New York Times' archprog Frank Bruni says the panic is all too real.
