I like many of Bernie's talking points, but just can't warm to him, and I can't get over my feeling that all he wants is the discussion, not actually governing.
Warren is awesome. Her progressive policy chops cannot be questioned, and I have zero doubt she wants to get in the muck and actually execute policy.
Buttigieg appears to be cleaning up on the fundraising front as he has no reservations about taking large $ donations. Hey, whateves, fill the war chest, I'm seriously not judging. He looks headed for the squishy middle, maybe a young alternative to Biden? Or am I way off on that?
Agree with above. Harris has done nothing to make me want to support her.
I want no part of Biden as the nominee, but obviously would vote for him in the general.
Agree 100% on Bernie and Kamala. Love Mayor Pete, and I do have a feeling that he might govern better that he is at running for POTUS. It's like he's trying really hard to not get out on any ledge this early, which is pretty much what Barack did in 2008.
If we could wave a wand and elect any of the field, I'd choose Warren, but I just think she is the weakest poltician of the front runners. Even her interview on Crooked Media, which is about the friendliest of places to be asked questions, had plenty of cringe worthy moments. The DNA thing, the beer on YouTube, her bad jokes...I'm terrified that she would get trounced vs Trump.
One thing to remember is that if a Dem wins the White House, it means that there's an excellent chance they will have both houses of Congress. I'd take two years of Corey effing Booker with a Congress pushed Left by AOC and company and be pretty pleased.
