Dick Morris, former Bill Clinton adviser says that Michael Bloomberg and Hillary Clinton are conspiring to keep Bernie Sanders from winning the Democratic nomination for president. The idea is for Bloomberg and other candidates stopping Bernie from winning the nomination in the first round. That puts the Super Delegates into play and since they are 771 establishment delegates, it gives Hilary a huge advantage.
Then Bloomberg and other candidates can instruct their delegates to vote for Hillary and she steals the nomination in a brokered convention. But it could backfire on the Democrats big time if neither candidate is able to reach the magic number and you have a stalemate. I am unaware of any mechanism to prevent such a scenario.
Democrats will decide that Hillary is the only candidate with a chance against President Trump. But, if she could not beat Trump who was running on promises, how can she hope to beat him now he can run on accomplishments. But that might not even be the goal. Democrats are scared that Bernie could damage the Democrats down ticket and could cost the Democrats the House by huge numbers.
Morris went on to explain:
Nobody will be nominated on the first ballot, and it'll go to a second ballot. Now, the problem is that the party establishment doesn't have a candidate. They can't do Bloomberg because he got killed in the debate. ... Can't do [Joe] Biden because he's already lost the frontrunner status. … [Pete] Buttigieg looks like a high school kid at the Model UN, and he's not gonna be able to have it, certainly not against [President Donald] Trump. [Elizabeth] Warren is third, but she's pretty far to the left, and people are not gonna want to— they're not going to want to trust her.
And when you put it together, it will go to a second ballot and then I think Hillary Clinton enters the race. And the superdelegates will all leave who they are for and go to Hillary.
