Boot Edge Edge!! My dark horse candidate. He's raised a ---- ton of capital and is expanding his staff when others, Kamala etc., are contracting their campaign forces. Smart guy. He'll totally eviscerate Trump in a one on one debate. He's a politician. He has flaws. Hell, I'd vote for him because he's "not Trump". But I think he's a viable candidate.

I said months ago that Biden-Buttigieg seems like the strongest ticket out of all the contenders on the Democrats' side to actually beat Trump. It still stands.

Buttigieg-Biden works too.

I posted this months ago - BootyJudge will not get black voters. They all screamed I was racist at the time. Sorry, just reporting on reality. You can see it back in the 2008 CA election - voted Barry 70% and then turned around and voted against gay marriage with the black voters being the main group to flip from Obama to banning gay marriage.

Here is a great article: - BootyJudge HAS ZERO BLACK SUPPORT
www.newsweek.com

I know the Dems are scrambling to find a centrist with everyone knowing Joe is already finished and Warren being equally unelectable - but BootyJudge is even worse. If he is truly the candidate, look for historically low black turn out and Trump getting 25%+ just as I have been saying. Look at any battleground state - the Dems can't win without high black turnout and 90% voting Dem - that is just a simple fact. This election is already over.

He's the best person running. I'm not sure if he's electable, but his values, his service, and his vision are all admirable.

I liked pete when he was saying dems should be bold and not worried about getting called socialist because repubs are going to call them that no matter what.

I stopped liking pete when he completely flipped and started saying dems shouldn't be bold and shouldnt pursue socialist policies.

I don't know what he actually stands for. Seems like he just says whatever he thinks will work best for him strategically.

And he seems to have no problem taking bribe money from plutocrats. Politicians serve their donors.

Maybe he should just change it like Drumph's daddy did for marketing purposes.

He is electable for any government position in NY or CA, that is about it. He wouldn't even come close to winning a Senate, Congressional, or Governor seat in Indiana.

I admire that he actually served in the military, but let's not blow this out of proportion. He was in the capital and worked mainly as a driver. He was not leading missions, he was not even training the local forces or anything that would expose him to any real danger. Also, he was only there for 7 months. My brother put in 14 months at Bagram and 14 months before that at Camp Taji in Iraq. His jobs was to recover disabled vehicles after roadside bombs, etc - so, they are the ones that knowingly go into probable ambushes. That is what most people think of when they describe military service. Mayor Pete's was more akin to advanced ROTC. While this is far superior to Trump's draft dodging, he is no a foreign policy or military expert after his very limited service. Frankly, Tulsi's service is about 100x better - and Hillary thinks she is a Russian agent.

#10 is my read on Pete as well. I'd obviously take him over Trump but he seems to care more about picking a winning lane than he does about advancing progressive causes.

"He wouldn't even come close to winning a Senate, Congressional, or Governor seat in Indiana. "

He won a mayoral office in Indiana.

"I admire that he actually served in the military, but let's not blow this out of proportion."

Yeah, it's not like he had bone spurs, or "misappropriated" millions donated for Veterans.

"He was not leading missions, he was not even training the local forces or anything that would expose him to any real danger."

Unlike your commander-in-chief, who was on the front lines on the wars on STDs, and won major skirmishes at the battles of Chlamydia and Syphilis.

Which neither Senator, Congressperson, or Governor...so, what is you point in responding?

I never said Trump was heroic in any sense of the world. In fact, I specifically wrote: "While this is far superior to Trump's draft dodging". Is your TDS to the point that you black out with any mention of Trump and missed this sentence? Maybe it is time for you to sign off for a bit and interact in the real world.

I dunno.

Outside of NY or CA, I think he may be electable for a government position in Indiana. Maybe even other places. ;)

Posts the guy who's claimed Trump will get 25% of the black vote.

In an actual debate? I think you are probably right.

In the stupid sound-bite fest that pose as presidential debates? Probably not.

Neither would a navy seal be a foreign policy expert.

Being a trained killer has nothing to do with leadership or intelligence. It's all about obedience and lack of morals.

Anyone who agreed to be a mercenary for bankers and oil companies is not a good or intelligent person and shouldnt be trusted in a position of leadership.
