And he’s liberal enough so that he can get at least a plurality of primary votes. In this very crowded field, if Biden continues to poll around 30 percent, he’ll win the nomination. Like I said earlier, only Bernie can compete with him.”

Seriously, if this is true and Schultz actually runs as an independent, you can […]
