I asked sort of the same question last week about the GOP contest. But this week it feels even more appropriate.
The Democratic primary is so low-energy that I’d be surprised if I get comments exceeding single digits on this post.
We know, or think we know, it’s going to be relatively low turnout.
Bernie is blowing SC off, and Bernie has been the only source of excitement on the Democratic side.
The campaign has seemed relatively invisible — probably because the one candidate actually running here can only be so many places at once. But it may also be because I’m a white guy who voted last week — if you’re not a black Democrat, that Hillary isn’t trying to seek you out.
Those black Democrats aren’t going to get as excited as they did in 2008, no matter what she says or does.
In fact, probably the one person who has any adrenaline going at all is Hillary Clinton herself, who has to win big here, or else. And that adrenaline probably isn’t all that great, since it seems that is going to happen. Although she might occasionally wake up in the middle of the night, filled with unreasoning fear that it won’t happen.
Anyway, is anyone else seeing this differently?
