Pete has "it"

he was really good in that clip.  he has a huge uphill battle to be taken seriously, but i'm not going to lump him in with the the tulsi gabbards of the world anymore.

:don'tcare:

arguably, it usefully contrasts bernie's 2020 situation v 2016 - in 2020, there's a stack of candidates in a similar ideological space and many of them are perceived to have more appealing personality traits.

On the one hand, I agree that most of the 2020 candidates have adopted some of Bernie's long time policy priorities like Medicare 4 All, but I think it is fool hardy to think that they will be anywhere near as committed to his ideology. Warren probably comes closest, but there is still a pretty big leap there.

this is really good, and i think it is also exactly where beto should position himself if/when he runs.  let the other crowd each other on health care - if he can own immigration all to himself while trump is out pushing the salience of the issue, i think he has a pretty easy way to stand out from the crowd.

i don't disagree, but what is the % of the electorate that is going to vote based on a sanders purity test?  i think he probably needs warren to fizzle out fairly early and a bunch of moderates or perceived moderates to hang around splitting the vote for a long while to have a viable path.

the sanders nightmare is if warren becomes perceived as the sensible/electable/realistic choice for his 2016 constituency.

Sanders should stay in to keep forcing the narrative to the left but Warren is pretty awful at campaigning

people who know a lot more than me think the field is going to narrow quickly (as the 'pubs did).  but looking at stuff like this, i don't understand why anyone with any realistic support would fold before super tuesday.

It's going to be a good 12 to 18 months of airing of the grievances.   Can't wait.

 :lol:  ge 'pubs put forth less than .001 of the total grievances in the pit, the grievance business is dominated by betas.
