The Coronation Is Off and Democrats are Restless

The 2016 presidential election cycle is upon us, and, up to now, the political media has devoted its focus to the human wrecking ball that is Donald Trump. The near myopic fixation of the press is understandable; they are in the eyeballs business, and Trump gets them – 24 million pairs of them, in fact, tuned into the last Republican presidential debate. But the race for the GOP nomination isn’t the only exciting presidential primary. The Democratic primary race that was once a sleepy coronation with a predetermined outcome has suddenly become not only competitive but also interesting and substantive. It is curious that the many in media have declined to give the contentious contest due notice.
