    I voted for Creepy Joe. He's a damn weirdo but he's like 90% less crazy than the rest of that mess.

    Another great source for in-depth candidate interviews is Pod Save America at the Crooked Media YT channel.

    I support Bernie. That being said, I’ll get behind Joe if he wins the primary.

    The think Elizabeth Warren would probably be best at doing the job of President, but I just don’t know if America is ready to vote for an intellectual female.

    Warren


    Buttigieg
    Sanders
    Biden

    Klobuchar
    Booker
    Harris


    Only 7 I'm considering. Top 3 hasn't changed in a long time, but Biden is giving me enough confidence to take him as the top spot among candidates I don't want to win.

    Beat Trump in 2020 or we’re permafucked. We’re already fairly fucked.

    Biden is your nominee. Work around that angle. As for riots and “we’re fucked” now is the time to take some deep breaths and relax.

    Trump has invaded no countries, kept the economy doing well (My investments, especially in the S&P 500 are doing great) and is going to bully your candidates on stage.

    Does anyone think there might be someone waiting in the wings that will announce at the last possible moment? I still find it hard to believe this is the best the DNC can come up with....

    It’d be an interesting strategy. Wait til the field narrows and jump in. The debates seem to have some strong criteria on donations. Despite the network Steyer had, he still wasn’t able to meet the donor criteria. It also seems like it’s important to campaign in Iowa early. I’d be surprised if someone could jump in without a campaign on the ground at this point and win Iowa or New Hampshire.

    She’s too smart for us voters just like Hillary.


    “I can’t help but wonder in retrospect if Hillary Clinton was really too smart to lead given the state of the current U.S. political ecosystem”
