Could Mayor Pete Secretly Be More Radical Than Bernie?

Roger L. Simon, The Epoch Times

Could Pete actually be as radical as Sanders or even further left? Bernie, even if he wins the nomination, would be too easily rejected with his fusty Eugene V. Debs style by the larger electorate, possibly disastrously. The Democrats know this, as most of us do, and so are preparing to select a leader of the moderate lane. As of now that’s between Bloomberg, Klobuchar and Mayor Pete, Biden having faded quickly. But no one seems to be asking seriously whether Buttigieg—who wrote an essay in praise of Sanders when Pete was still in high school— is indeed moderate, let alone whether he is a Gramscian like his dad. Someone ought to do it now to avoid some highly unpleasant surprises later.
