Shouldn't this count as Chuck Schumer? Or does the exact text have to match/alternate spellings are allowed but you at least have to remember his name?
Chuck Schumer is the old guy who's currently the minority leader. (At least, he is in the context of the senate. In the context of the house the old guy who is currently minority leader is Kevin Mccarthy)
Who said that?
Chamber. It's all a conspiracy.

When going for a person I ruled you do have to get the specific name. On non-person questions there's a bit more leeway as demonstrated here:

5) If Donald Trump retains the presidency and the Republicans take back control of both the House and Senate, this will be the first bill Trump signs into law, in one to three words.

Sorry guys, this is either wishful thinking or trying to draft on others' wishful thinking. Maybe I'm just bitter about the loss of 10 points here though.

Yes. Yes it was. I 100% agree, Sanders would not have become the nominee. I'm not sure who would have, possibly Warren, possibly Pete, but I think they were both more likely than Sanders. But:
1) There are plenty of people who do think Sanders would have won. Also plenty of these people think that everyone thinks like they do so they'll pick Sanders. And even if they don't exist, plenty of people think they do and will pick Sanders.
2) If we're trying to go for the realistic outcome, there are several different options all with different complicated supporting arguments. If we just pick the "Famous guy who was the last to drop out", there's only one of those. With no communication it's impossible to unify around one non-Sanders option. Even though I agree with you that it's not Sanders, I would probably have picked Pete if Sanders weren't an option.
Who said that?
Chamber. It's all a conspiracy.
