Biden Team Insists That Super Tuesday Was a ‘Win’ – But That’s Not The Whole Story

Biden is celebrating prematurely, but that’s all by design.

Former Vice President Joe Biden needed a big showing on Super Tuesday in order to help the Democratic Party stave off the nigh-inevitable rise of Bernie Sanders, and he is certainly spinning what occurred last night as just that.  In reality, however, he’s telling only half of the story.

The results from last night had Biden feeling reinvigorated.

Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke to supporters in Los Angeles on Tuesday, following a string of early Super Tuesday victories in states including Massachusetts, Minnesota, Virginia and North Carolina.

Biden hailed House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.), whose endorsement of Biden proved instrumental to the former vice president’s landslide victory in the South Carolina primary over the weekend.

His staggering victory in the Southern state could be what has given Biden the burst of momentum seen in the early Super Tuesday nominating contests.

“I was proud to be endorsed by Jim Clyburn, man, he is something else,” Biden said. “Our campaign reflects the diversity of this party and this nation, because we need to bring everybody along. We want a nominee who will keep Nancy Pelosi the Speaker of the House and win back the United States Senate.”

For political observers with any modicum of historical primary knowledge, however, Biden’s celebration should appear wholly premature.

Biden was always predicted to do well in the south, with a majority of the contests favoring him occurring on Super Tuesday.  What we see today is posturing by the former Vice President, as he attempts to convince the nation that he now has momentum.  It’s a game of perception, really, as the remaining primary elections are set to favor Bernie Sanders by a long shot.
