I said the same thing about "people not being ready for a Black President" before Obama easily won.......

He won't win because he has no substantial experience.... (I said that about Trump, too....)

I think the real reason he won't win is he is just too far left for the moderate Democrats and Independents.
Obama was a phenomenon. Many people didn't vote for him because he is half black but all in all the country was ready for the right "black" president.

Gotta disagree. His whole campaign is about being the moderate alternative to Warren/Sanders (and the younger alternative to Biden). That's why he's been surging in Iowa.


Pretty clear some people are not paying attention.

We need generational change and Mayor Pete is the only candidate that represents that.

Another point we can agree to disagree on! I think we are doing just fine, and next November we shall see if America agrees with me. I am always for incremental positive change. That can happen under a Biden Presidency, a Klobuchar Presidency, a Clinton Presidency. Sanders/Warren/Buttigieg are too disruptive.

No he wasn't. He won because he
ran against asshat John Mccain
and media trashed Sarah Palin.
Even Hillary could have beaten
McCain, Mr Faux Republican.

Buttcrack won't be nominated
because he's too young, too
Gay, and too inexperienced.
And he's wayyyyy too Liberal.
And he has a 'husband'. I
don't care what face Americans
wear in public, how tolerant
they appear, Gay people make
them nervous, and rightly so.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.

Global warming
Homeless problem
Children getting massacred in our schools

Pocketbook... good... yes.
Healthcare system.... ROBUST..... new drugs, new treatment techniques,... good... yes.
Armed services crimes.... agree..... but truly a minor issue affecting an extremely small number of convicted men. I DO agree that as a concept it is very wrong.
The hate...? Escalated the second DJT was elected..... the left hates NO MATTER WHAT.... Trump could cure cancer and enact world peace and the left would not be happy....
Global warming.... complicated problem..... Not sure what we can actually do about it..... without styfling regulations.... that would only affect the US.... you think the next Democrat president will successfully rein in growth in China, Russia, Africa, etc...?
Homeless problem.... has existed since I was a child.... Republican and Democrat administrations have done what successfully?
Children getting massacred..... a small fraction of the gun problem.... the big problem is in Democrat controlled cities and states..... but I can't convince them to elect Republicans.... can you?
ects..... both Republican and Democrat leaders can benefit..... (Ok, it may have been a typo?)

Other than global warming, I see no advantage in a Democrat President, and I'm not even sure the solution to GW as proposed by Dems is worth all the negatives.

Anybody else see Senile Ol Joe stumbling
thru his opening statement last night?
Why would any Dem vote for this clown,
I don't get it. He's one step away from
a rest home.

Sadly I have to agree with Bob. Uncle Joe, as my wife refers to him, is clearly declining, as many late septuagenarians do. (She loves him) I think he politically is the best that the Democrats have to offer, but personally is failing. If the Republicans had a young, non controversial incumbent, Biden would not have a chance. The only reason he would even get a sniff of winning is the Repubs have DJT.

Watching him is like enduring ol
grandpa at Tgiving dinner getting
up and rambling on about nothing
every year. It's embarrassing.

Pete Buttcrack comes across as
the super smart guy who was
always running for something
in HS. No personality and boring.

Tom Steyer is so rich, you think he
could afford a personality. Talk
about a fish out of water. And he's
ugly as a board fence on top of
that.

80 year old Bernie, ranting and
raving about the same old crap.

Yang showing up with no necktie,
like it's casual Friday at Google.
Shows he's not serious about this
at all.

How does KamelToe Harris always
come off as so unlikable. She really
works at it.

Warren, every time I look at her all
I see is the invisible Indian headdress
she always wears.

Booker, why would anybody elect
this clown to anything. Totally
unlikable and shifty. Spartacus.
If you take a risk, you may lose. If you never take a risk, you will always lose.
