    Call me cynical but if Sanders gets the nomination I think we'll start seeing op-eds that paint Schultz as the principled and pragmatic choice, or even as the "true Democratic" in the race. As horrible as Trump is he doesn't threaten to take the wealth of the 0.1% and that's a group that will fight as hard as they can to keep someone like Sanders out of office.

      This is exactly what would happen, and is in fact Schultz's objective. There are about three Republican columnists who would vote for him over Trump and he knows it. His all-but-stated goal in running would be to act as a spoiler by peeling off some of the conservative "centrist" Democrats who, like Donny Deutsch said on MSNBC yesterday morning, would vote for Donald Trump before they would vote for a socialist.

      "Many - not all, but many - in the Democratic party would rather lose to the right than win from the left."
