    Not sure if I'll make this one, but it should be pretty fiery after the dust-up between Sanders and Warren, and with Buttigieg getting a little desperate and Steyer begging for attention. Klobuchar is just kind of there. The only main player seemingly not under pressure is Biden.

    Less heroic and more bespectacled candle-fire pondering. Buttigieg would be my guy but he's not the best choice for top leadership. He needed to be out front and less calculating to convince me he's totally ready for the most important executive role in da erf. Warren has nearly excused herself, and Biden has some mental problems and a rough history of being on the wrong side of almost everything, at least until he was in his 70s.

    I'm glad for it, but being facetious in that I'm not really that surprised. I don't recall you, JVS, @Gandhi or @kpt018 even endorsing Biden as your #1 at any point of the process, and I've defended you guys from the purity test leftists in at least a couple of threads a while back. That's a daily war I'd rather not get involved in though. <45>

    This line up looks like a KKK rally. Bunch of white people telling Black and Brown people how they should think.

    Not really surprising. I've had that view since the 2020 primary season began. Would have had a different view in 2016, though if Biden had actually campaigned then, he might have lost me. Among the top four, Bernie is probably second for me (behind Buttigieg). I'd take Klobuchar first at this point, probably, but she's looking dead.

    One day, people will look back and say, "I marched with Bernie."

    It would be smart for Sanders to target him and shrug off Warren, but I can't see how it's in Warren's best interest to attack Biden. Buttigieg and Steyer should always be going after him. Klobuchar has had no discernible valid strategy.

    Warren's whole ace up the sleeve was supposed to be her history with Biden: that she can point to his putrid record on consumer finance, his sponsorship of the bankruptcy bill, and how his condescending handling of her as a bankruptcy expert pushed her into politics.

    She's most likely dead in the water, but that was always supposed to be her ticket.

    In a 1v1 that would make sense, but she would have had to have gotten into second place and put Bernie where she is right now. Biden voters and Warren voters don't cross over as much as Warren and Sanders voters, and those are what she needs. Bernie has a good silver medal hedge in that his second choice voters are split between Biden and Warren, so he is in a really good position to siphon from her and lose to Biden with some honor.

    Can't wait. Got some beer ready to go along with it. Will be nice to see how Pocahontas deals with her allegations against Bernie. This is going to be a good one.

    That's definitely the narrative today, the talking heads are crying about all of the "white people" that will be on stage tonight.
