Ok, here goes:
Bernie Sanders. No. Ok, if he wins he will get my vote, but my guess is that we will get blown out, nationwide.
Elizabeth Warren. No. Yes, she is a smart, accomplished, hard working lady. Yes, she understands policy very well. But, in my opinion, she lacks political aptitude; she is awful from the podium and isn’t even popular in her own state.
Yes, I prefer Warren to Sanders if those are my choices. She is a doer; he yells. I sure hope those aren’t my choices.
Mike Bloomberg: are you in or out? If you are in, I’ll give you a look. I think that he is too late, but I love his attacks on Trump.
Pete Buttigieg: I really like him..seriously, I do. He has talent, brains and charisma. Experience: well, his resume is way too thin..so we’d be taking a huge chance. Ultimately: is he the best one to beat Trump?
Joe Biden Great experience, but he has lost a few steps; he isn’t what he once was. But even in this condition: is he the best one to beat Trump? Note: he is throwing elbows at Mayor Pete.
Amy Klobuchar I like her the best of the bunch. But is she surging fast enough to stop Sanders’ momentum? It appears to me that she isn’t.
So for me, there are three big questions:
1. Who is the best D to beat Sanders?
2. Which D has the best chance of beating Trump?
3. Are the answers in 1 and 2 the same candidate?
I am still giving to Amy…..but is it time to invest in Pete or give a bit more to Joe?
So for me:
2. Biden (for now)
5. Anyone still standing who isn’t Sanders
Though Bloomberg getting serious might change my rankings a bit.
And yes, the Democratic nominee has my vote, even if it is Sanders.
