Senior editor for “The Root,” Jason Johnson, concluded that the biggest loser of the Democratic debate in Las Vegas Wednesday was Michael Bloomberg, but not merely because of his debate performance.
“The big new name was going to be Michael Bloomberg,” he said. “This was probably the most expensive night in Vegas I’ve ever seen. He lost everything. This guy has spent $320 million. He had the opportunity to stand on stage, and appear to be an equal, and he looked bored. He looked disenchanted. He stumbled over obvious questions that anybody would have anticipated about sexual harassment and stop and frisk. I thought it was a bad night for him.”
He went on to say that he anticipated Bloomberg would probably be doubling the salaries of any staffers in the post-debate spin-room to defend him after the night he had.
“The most critical question tonight was when the moderator asked if someone has the delegates but doesn’t hit the threshold, does that make them the nominee? Everybody said no, but Bernie Sanders.”

Expert delivers sobering warning to Dems: ‘Traitor ‘ Trump will cheat and Russia will help — ignore it and focus on winning
Political science and foreign policy expert David Rothkopf is out with another sobering but insightful piece of advice for Democrats who want to see President Donald Trump kicked out of office in November. Ignore Trump.
In a lengthy Twitter thread Rothkopf, who is the CEO of The Rothkopf Group and a visiting scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, among other endeavors, is warning Democrats that their outrage and upset over Trump may be their undoing, because they take focus away from the goal right now: figuring out how to win.
"Get votes. Get more votes. Win more electoral votes. Don't count on history. Don't count on swing votes. Don't count on anything but hard work, donations, grass roots efforts, groundwork. Don't focus on him. Focus on how to win," Rothkopf tweets.
