And then there were three. On the heels of Joe Biden’s announcement, Lincoln Chafee has followed Jim Webb out the door. A small herd is further thinned. A few questions:
- What was he thinking?
- Can Martin O’Malley unite the Webb and Chafee voters?
- If so, could he pop all the way to . . . two points?
- Might O’Malley also win some Biden voters? He is now the last non-socialist male in the race, and the only one who’s been a governor. Does that count for anything in the Democratic Primary?
- With Clinton, Sanders, and O’Malley as the only three remaining candidates of a tiny field, might this induce another Democrat to make a late entry?
Late edit: I forgot about Larry Lessig! Four candidates left. Kind of.
