I'm starting to think that the four contenders are going to do something historic. They are going to attach themselves to the four highest positions after Super Tuesday on March 3rd and run a united campaign.

Running a near four way tie until June won't help matters much in winning the general election.

Bernie Sanders
Elizabeth Warren
Pete Buttigieg
Joe Biden

President
Vice President
Secretary of State
Secretary of the Treasury

It would not be particularly historic if the four contenders were ultimately to get those positions, but making the announcement as early as post Super Tuesday would be historic.

My best guess at this point would be:
President - Elizabeth Warren
Vice President - Bernie Sanders
Secretary of State - Joe Biden
Secretary of the Treasury - Pete Buttigieg

Question for the Dems here (specifically ams, rx, terp,...)

It's seems from an outsiders perspective that your side ain't too keen on the progs. Maybe I'm just being manipulated, but I see what I view as "left media" like CNN and MSNBC report stats and standings but omitting your own people. I remember seeing one that listed popularity or some such, basically which person was doing the best. And it was in order, top to bottom. Yet Yang was completely omitted from the list even though he was polling second or third in a list of, like, 7. And his lead over the bottom was far greater than his trailing of the leader. I've seen them do it to Uncle Bern, too. Like second most popular, yet completely omitted from the list.

Wtf? What is this s#$%? Am I crazy, or just not paying enough attention?
Be bold and risk defeat, or be cautious and encourage it.

Just the opposite bro, you're paying way to much attention.

The Nevada Caucus on Feb 22. I won't give names but I'm in a position of voting my heart or head. Current betting odds suggest my heart pick has a 2.5% chance of winning the primary. However, my second place pick has a 28.2% chance. Of course, things will changes depending on Iowa and NH, but let's say the odds are about the same.

All I will say is I won't vote for pro-reparations candidates or those apologetic about the bombing of the Iranian general (I'm too lazy to look up the spelling of his name).

What would you do in my shoes?

Vote for who you want to win regardless of odds.
That's how I have voted my whole life. For President, I've voted Dem, Republican and 3rd party. Who I want to be President has always gotten my vote.

Random.org, if you could assign a percentage desire to vote for to both, then use those percentages and pick one that way. If one is 60%, then he gets 1-60 and the other gets 61-100. Then, just have it pick the number!

Change my registration and support Trump!

OK, that is not what you meant. Here is the thing. Only Biden is not a total extremist on the Democrat ticket. Most of the rest want things that will outright destroy the economy. Reparations, UBI, Medicare for all, free college for all, free whatever for all. They are not living in a realistic world. Biden is not totally off the rails but he seems to be running because running is all he knows how to do.

Pick your poison. Nothing being proposed on the Democrat side is remotely doable.

None of these candidates alone has the personality to defeat Trump alone. I think all four of them will be publicly promised some position of power well before the election. That way the Democratic voters won't feel like their man or woman was completely cut out and sent to retirement (or in Pete's case to a media position).
