A former Bill Clinton aide said Tuesday that following a Hillary loss during the June 7th California Democratic primary, the Democrat establishment will panic and force “white knight” Vice President Joe Biden to “rescue the party.”
“Mr. Biden would be cast as the white knight rescuing the party, and the nation, from a possible Trump presidency,” Doug Schoen of The Wall Street Journal wrote in an editorial. “The inevitability behind Mrs. Clinton’s nomination will be in large measure eviscerated if she loses the June 7 California primary to Bernie Sanders. That could well happen.”
Hillary is currently limping to the finish line in the primary election with Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders. Her 268 pledged delegate lead over Sanders is not in jeopardy to be overtaken with only 908 delegates remaining, but the Secretary of State’s dwindling party influence following the Inspector General’s report, and the pending results from the FBI Criminal Investigation into her personal email server is causing some Democratic elites to look towards a “plan B” in Biden.
