TO PRESS BERNIE BOWS TO MATH, BUT VOWS BIDEN ON THE ISSUES
Credits: “Bernie Sanders says that he came forward with his Democratic presidential campaign. He told reporters in Burlington on Wednesday that he will not leave, in spite of key primary losses Joe Biden the night before. The Vermont senator’s path to the presidency narrowed nomination clear, the layers to be a crucial low to Biden in Michigan, Missouri and Mississippi. Sanders acknowledged, ‘we lose the debate about electability’ of a candidate many Democrats believe has a better chance to defeat President Donald Trump in the autumn. But he said he will force wants to Biden with issues of economic inequality and other issues important to Sanders’ backers. He said he was planning to do that in the scheduled debate with Biden on Sunday. Sanders did not address supporters publicly Tuesday evening. The pressure to grow, to unite him to end his presidential candidacy and to work, and the party against Trump.”

Chait: How Dems’ read out in 2016, created the Bernie bubble – NY Mag: “The second, Sanders’ campaign has shown, conclusively, how badly the left misread the voters to win. It is not only that Sanders inspire you failed, so something like the upswing in the youth turnout, he promised, or that he has not run a meaningful progress with black voters. The working class and the rural voters and white swung strongly against him. In Missouri and Michigan, those voters States that he was closely fought four years turned into routes for his opponents. Some rural counties swung 30 points from Sanders in 2016, Biden 2020. The candidates in the race, which has forged a transracial working-class coalition Biden is, in fact, Joe.”

Clyburn: Shut it down – Fox News: “house majority whip Jim Clyburn, D-S. C., appeared ready to get out of the Democratic primary race Tuesday night, and explain, former Vice-President, Joe Biden, the victor. In a conversation with NPR as the results came in, Clyburn – who has already endorsed Biden said that, to sweep if Biden were the six competitions, it would be best for the party put an end to the primary race, debates and all. “I think, when the night is over, Joe Biden, is the prohibitive favorite in the race for the democratic nomination, and quite honestly, if the night ends as it began, I think it is time for us to drive the primary down, it is to cancel time for us, the rest of these debates,’ Clyburn said, ‘because you do everything, but himself in trouble, if you continue in this competition, if it is obvious, the numbers do not shake for you.'”

The largest 2020 surprise? A no-drama nomination for the NYT: “unlike in 2016, if Mr. Sanders extends his race against Hillary Clinton with a series of victories in group meetings, a format in which he has surpassed this year’s calendar has many more traditional primaries, provides fewer chances for Mr. Sanders to drive up profit margins and keep the delegate tally close. The result is implausible, as it seemed last month, when Mr indulged Biden swayed so heavily in Iowa and New Hampshire, the establishment Democrats to stop fantasizing about a controversial Convention, Mr. Sanders is a race that could end before its functional.”

Bernie’s wasted week – WaPo: “After the receipt of harmful losses in the March 3 Super Tuesday contests, sen Bernie Sanders had a critical week to grow his support, change the action and revive his campaign. Instead, he spent largely in a struggle against the party he hopes to lead. He accused the former rivals to bow to operation-Biden printing with the approval of Joe. Some donors, including a top surrogate, made unsubstantiated claims that Biden will be forfeited and spiritually. And Sanders abruptly scrapped a speech said his team would be an important statement on racial justice. … Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), a prominent Sanders supporters-who, with him, took issue with Sanders supporters who have attacked Warren. To not support Warren’s decision in Sanders, after you mocked out of the race, to criticize while Sanders for his allies” online, was a huge rebuke from ideological ally.”

Alberta: reason for GOP in Michigan, results – Politico: “[The] big take-away from today’s great price, Michigan, is not that Biden is a spectacular candidate. The big takeaway is that he doesn’t need to be. Two things happened on Tuesday in Michigan. First, Democratic voter turnout exploded. Second, Biden performed much better with key demographic groups than Clinton four years ago. If any of these things happened in November, Trump to win a difficult time, the state. If both happen, the President kiss Michigan’s 16 electoral votes good—bye-and with them, more than likely, that the electoral votes of Wisconsin and Pennsylvania.”

THE RULES: IMPROVEMENT OF THE ODDS AGAINST THE TYRANNY
“If the representatives of the people betray their constituents, then there is no resource left but in the exertion of that original right of self-defense which is paramount to all positive forms of government, and which against the usurpations of the national rulers, may be exerted with infinitely better prospect of success than with those of the rulers of an individual state.” – Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 28

TIME OUT: THE ‘KNAPSACK PROBLEM’
Smithsonian: “imagine you’re a thief robs a museum exhibit of delicious jewelry, Druze, and rare gems. You’re new to this, so that you only brought a single backpack. To maximize … how to select the objects you their prey? … This hypothetical dilemma, the ‘knapsack problem’ belongs to a class of mathematical problems, famous for the boundaries of the data processing. And the knapsack-problem is more than a thought experiment. “A lot of the problems we face in life be it economy, Finance, including logistics, container ship, loading, plane, loading all of the are knapsack problems,” says Carsten Murawski, a professor at the University of Melbourne in Australia. To create … researchers and has the advantage that the problem of the complexity of computer security systems, but these can now be cracked, since the problem investigated as well.

As Dr. Fauci and other posters, do not shake the advice to the General public, the hands showed, Mr. Pence, which was to explain the pain, why the President to do so. … And as Mr Trump emerged from the lunch break, talks with Senate Republicans, his assessment was positive. ‘Just stay calm — it will go”, he said, but there is no scientific assessment that up.”

President Donald Trump presents Republican senators with a number of possible actions that the Congress could be so lawmakers look to avert catastrophic economic impacts from the virus — but he did not offer a specific legislative package during their one-hour lunch session on Tuesday, according to several participants.

Georgia county stirs controversy by holding a pseudo-Senate-election – Fox News: “A lonely county in the North-West of Georgia, is the attempt to play kingmaker in the disputed Senate race between GOP Sen. Kelly Loeffler and GOP Rep. Doug Collins to the annoyance of some Republicans. Floyd County, about an hour North of Atlanta, is taking the unusual step of asking GOP primary voters during the may-to get 19 election of their favorite candidate for the U.S. Senate in an effort to measure the support of Loeffler and Collins. The result of a poll by ballot is not official, but more. The County GOP officials in the case that the one who can always win, in red, Floyd County, the momentum is better and emerge as the winner of the GOP candidates in the November election. … The state of Georgia is not the primary choice for the U.S. Senate seat, but rather a wild ‘jungle’ – elections in November, where all of the Republican and Democratic candidates are on the ballot. The two first-placed – probably a Republican and a Democrat – then choice the head to a runoff.”
