I really want him to do well. He’s the only Hispanic running and he’s got a good variety of experience. I doubt he’ll be the nominee but I would love to see him involved on the ticket somehow or in the next administration. Been a fan since the 2012 DNC.

Just got off the phone with my older sister. She asked if I was watching the debates and she was pretty excited that Amy Klobuchar was there. She’s usually a lot less into politics than I am so it was cool that she’s into it tonight.

Not totally yet, but I’m this close to going all in for Elizabeth Warren.

Like I said a week ago, I want to get a bumper sticker that says “I really like Elizabeth Warren, but I will crawl through fire and broken glass to vote for whoever becomes the democratic candidate for president”, and I don’t care how small the font has to be.

I’ll vote for Bernie if he’s the guy, but fuck the fire and glass part.

He (Mayor Pete) is what I was afraid of…not much substance for those who aren’t middle or upper class and white. He has a great way of making white middle class voters seen…and that might be an important quality in a candidate, but that doesn’t make the grade for me.

Seriously. I have never seen that guy actually happy. My brother tells me he’s seen Ben make fun of how his daughter runs who is around the same age as my niece and my brother just thought it was absurd. I really like how my niece isn’t being told by him that she can’t do certain things because she’s a girl. She has some somewhat traditional female interests like song and dance but then she’ll show a tomboy side and be a climber.

She believed a family legend that turned out to have some truth to it. I do understand completely why the Native American community was upset with her but whtie wingnuts? They can fuck off. They would just find some other reason to hate her. You’ll note that they don’t care that Trump lied about his grandfather’s ethnic background for years and that was something he or certainly his father would have known.

Yeah. I understand why POC communities are not the top priority for a lot of people. But they are for ME. And the way your policies affect the folks on the lowest rungs of the ladder is a very valid litmus test to hold for candidates. It’s an uncomfortable truth, but lifting up the lowest class while not giving as much to the upper classes does more for the country as a whole.

Yeah I hear ya. And man Bernie is so fucking typical. I think he’s fading though big time.

Conservative humor always goes back to how ignorant, racist, and stupid they are. That joke says a lot more about Todd than it does Beto. BTW Todd, you support the guy who partied at Studio 54. Maybe you should get Trump’s coke off your mouth before you shit on Beto for doing what normal people indulge in as a vice.

Since you want to go on about this…

Why did Hillary lose?

It was nothing she did in 2016. Nor in 2015.

The right wing spend thirty years attacking her.

So no, when you’re running for President you don’t start campaigning for the general election the year of the election. Instead, one starts years before, as indeed many of the current candidates are aware as they’ve been positioning themselves for years, some more successfully than others.

I don’t understand Spanish and it makes me feel dumb. I know French, German and Hebrew but I never studied Spanish.

Well, the reverse is true for me. (Plus I speak Portuguese.)

However if someone was speaking French, German, or Hebrew around me I wouldn’t lose my freakin’ top like so many ‘Muricans.

I did feel pretty dumb when we were in Poland and my vocabulary was about ten words. Fortunately my wife was there to bail me out.

DeBlasio correct about need to start hitting GOP in their own states.

Morning Consult’s state polling in Nebraska shows Trump’s steady decline since he was elected here.

On Election Day, he won by +25.

Now he polls at +1.

Hey Democrats, would you like our five electoral votes? (Well four, because my House district would vote for R-Destroyer of Worlds first.)

That was another thing for me. I like to know what the people who know you best think of you. Hearing how South Bendians of color viewed Pete’s performance as their mayor, yeah it soured me. It also was one of the first reasons I got stink eye on Sanders since I read about what Vermont PoC and women had to say about how he viewed their important isues.

He soured on me long before, when he came here to Omaha and praised Mike Pence as a fundamentally good guy.

The same Mike Pence who would jail him for his marriage.

Remember that five electoral votes I mentioned up above? Buttigieg is the only Democrat to show up in this state so far.

My rating for closing statements/best to worst.

Warren
Castro/Booker
Klobuchar
Inslee
O’Roarke
Gabbard

and tied for last
Delaney/Ryan/DeBlasio

YMMV

Looking forward to tomorrow night. If Harris is as good as she was at our convention, it will be something to see. And Gillebrand said she is WILDLY looking forward to the debate.

Booker, Warren and Castro clear winners. Gabbard will fold. De Blasio was the only one of the older white guy contingent who made any impression. Beto stumbled, recovered a bit with strong closing speech. Needs to look at Governor or something. Klobuchar was ignored, which was a shame because she is wicked smart.

Desegregation of the military

Fought for the MLK holiday

Nominated the first AA candidate for President

Rank and file is full of AAs

Passed voting rights act- an act weakened by Republican judges.

Don’t have friends like you do that think the Nazis were great until Hitler invaded Poland.
