    Note to Democrats: No One Is Inevitable

    Despite widespread talk of Hillary Clinton’s “inevitability” as the Democratic presidential nominee, there’s no such thing as a fait accompli this early in the electoral cycle. I don’t think Clinton was ever inevitable — no more so now than she was in 2008. It would be wise for Democrats to treat the primary as a crucible, and consider not just a plan B, but also plans C, D, E and F. After all, a robust primary widens the debates and forces candidates to more deeply articulate their visions, which ultimately makes for stronger nominees and a more informed electorate.
