Why are the Democrats even bothering with a primary? Many old line Democrats are asking this without ever having met, heard or read about Cathy Myers.
Is this the same scenario that unfolded in the Clinton/Sanders Democratic presidential primary? We know how that failed. They seem to be stuck with the same "choose early, gather a big campaign treasury and rely on an intense propaganda program" strategy, that they hope is better than the Republicans.
In the end they could very well feel like the wide-eyed kid in the ice cream store who excitedly ordered vanilla, only to later regret passing on the Rocky Road.
