    While speaking at Harvard's Kennedy School of Government, the center-right Danish Prime Minister Lars Lokke Rasmussen said he was aware "that some people in the U.S. associate the Nordic model with some sort of socialism."

    "Therefore," he said, "I would like to make one thing clear. Denmark is far from a socialist planned economy. Denmark is a market economy."

    Rasmussen acknowledged that "the Nordic model is an expanded welfare state which provides a high level of security to its citizens," but he also noted that it is "a successful market economy with much freedom to pursue your dreams and live your life as you wish."

    Rasmussen isn't disagreeing with me OBP, he's disagreeing with you et al who think Sanders is a socialist because he points to Denmark as an example of democratic socialism. E. Warren has much the same perspective as Sanders, though she calls herself a capitalist. Democratic socialism ala Sanders/Warren is no less a market based economy than is Denmark. Rasmussen's remarks are pointed at you, not at me.

    Um, "more than anyone else" is the definition of majority.

    That could also be a plurality -- where someone has the majority of something but not 50% +1 of it (a true majority).

Then, of course, there's the super delegate problem for him to overcome which Bernie's campaign has admitted they don't have a strategy for.
    Please (re)acquaint yourself with the definitions of "majority" and "plurality."

    I seem to have gotten my terminology reversed.

    You are aware that there are, broadly, leftist and moderate wings of the Democrat party? If you're this ignorant on the state of things, perhaps you should consider not opining on them.

    Yes, I am, which makes your initial point even less relevant.

    No, it makes your apparent inability to follow my argument even more obvious. For some unfathomable reason, you read "leftist" as "popular" and ran with that, and are now doubling down on attempting to somehow make this MY fault. You goofed. Why not admit it and move on? You're not as stupid as your inane quest to redirect blame makes you look.

    Maybe you should instead not be so ambiguous in your posts, like I said. "Leftist" means democrats in my book. "Progressives" is distinct and means not moderate.

    Now you're making up definitions!
