All political parties and candidates have bad days. But the new progressive Democratic Party had four of its worst days in recent memory in a single week in February. On Feb. 3, the Iowa Caucuses imploded for the first time in their history. The new app-driven counting melted down, discrediting the very idea of caucusing in general. The winner – Pete Buttigieg by two delegates over Bernie Sanders – was not known for days. The mess was ironic in a number of ways.
