In case the Democrats need any extra advice on how to defeat President Trump in November, they should always remember that the Washington Post’s Max Boot is always there to help:
Please, Democrats, do the smart thing and coalesce quickly around one of the three moderates—Pete Buttigieg, Amy Klobuchar, or Michael Bloomberg—who are still standing after the first two contests. The future of our democracy may depend on it.https://t.co/C1v8r2m9n4

lolololol the absolute hubris to jump to another team and then demand that team reorganize itself to conform to your own preferences. https://t.co/ezquksKCJF

None of the people you listed are moderates. https://t.co/tOBIZrLicN

Wow, Max. So a day may come when you find yourself voting for someone you know is very bad in many ways because the thought of what comes instead scares you even more? Does that sound familiar? https://t.co/rcAetXMHOY

How might Democrats be receiving Boot’s advice?
Watching Max get kicked around in the comments by the Democrats he's been pandering to is excellent. https://t.co/ZbZ6iu0mqx

Boot might be politically homeless at this point, because the Left doesn’t want to hear it either:
yes, we must protect our democracy by rallying around the [squints at cue card in the distance] billionaire plutocrat trying to buy his way into power https://t.co/JrLRZhYZSS

the guy who spent the last few decades cheering for one disastrous idea after another, including the iraq war, wants the democratic party to nominate as he demands. https://t.co/WHxAvXePfZ
