Is anyone really surprised?
Another neo-liberal Democrat with a mixed bag of media love/hate relationships, the kind of politician who attracts some of that celebrity charisma by seeming to be eclectic and acting like a non-conformist while, in Congress, he was a card carrying member of the New Democrat Coalition, which is a group dedicated to corporate-friendly economics, kind of a Young Republican Boy Scout troop for young Democrats who embrace what they call “the Third Way” which is essentially Republican Lite.
Ted Cruz beat him in a run for the Senate and he wasn’t really doing much, so, hey… why not run for President? I mean, since 2016, the bar’s set pretty damned low anyway.
