Wow! This guy really does want to run to the left of the Dems. The voters screwed up big time in that primary.
“There’s no more passing the buck,” he said. “The party in power is responsible for everything that goes wrong, as well as everything that goes right. Now, nobody is responsible, really.”
The US Constitution was intentionally written to prevent exactly such a concentration of power. It's worked pretty well for 225 years.

There were no viable candidates running and the primary got very little press or attention.

I've lived under a parliamentary government, in Turkey. Because I was on my county Central Committee at home, I paid a lot of attention to Turkish politics. Because Members of Parliament were elected on Party slates instead of being elected as individuals, their loyalty was to the Party boss who put them on the ballot, not to the people in their district. They were completely unresponsive to the needs and wants of their supposed constituents. A parliamentary system is a real disaster. I'm amazed the Brits have made it work as well as they have for all these years.
