Lincoln Chafee Will Not Be President of the United States
by

Former Senator and Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee has mercifully put an end to his bid to for the Democratic Party’s nomination to become President of the United States.

Although Chafee is remembered fondly by some on the Left for his opposition to the War in Iraq when he was a Republican Senator, they did not accept him as of their own as they have with Bernie Sanders. And let’s face it, when one feels the need to suggest this country adopt the metric system isn’t going to exactly attract followers. His campaign barely moved an inch. Or should I say centimetre?

Chafee’s irrelevance became abundantly clear during the Democratic presidential debate earlier this month. After Chafee questioned Hillary’s credibility concerning her initial support for the Iraq War, Anderson Cooper asked her if she wished to reply. When Hillary said no, the audience erupted in cheers.

With Jim Webb withdrawing from the race earlier this week and Joe Biden declining to enter, this leaves only Sanders and Martin O’Malley competing with Hillary. The next scheduled Democratic debate is for November 6th in South Carolina. Will the field have thinned further by then? Even if it hasn’t, what will they talk about since Hillary’s character has been taken off the table as an issue by Sanders?
