Note to *way*-early 2020 boomlets: GILLIBRAND and oh-Jed-ah (o-HEAD-ah)

It's WAY early and my WAY early picks are Eric GARCETTI and Kamala HARRIS, but the early declarers are pushing me to give them a note (like MY notes matter!1 ) :

To Senator GILLIBRAND: No. I love you as I love all authentic Dems and love all the correct Dem things you say, yet NO.

As for today's flurry about Richard OJEDA: Today is when I heard about you first, and did my diligent Googling (which anybody should do because I'm not the Summary Monkey) and have settled as my issue on your chosen pronunciation of your surname, which is your entire right to choose: The video below from the Young Turks and you at the 4:00 mark are clear that you pronounce it "o-Jed-ah" or as the media sound it "o-Jed-uh". You probably know (from your father) that the Spanish/Mexican pronunciation is not "j" with a hard "j" but rather (American sound: ) "h" so it's: o-HEAD-ah. But everybody's got a right to their name as they want it. I understand you're from the Midwest and then W. VA, so fine. That's a real good LBJ dialect, too, so that might help, certainly with me for the sound but not for your '16 vote for SHITLER. Here's the sound of your pronunciation from YouTube, from the Turks throughout and yours at the 4:00 mark:

2. I agree. And why would anyone favor Gillibrand over Harris?

3. 💙 Harris/Swalwell

 

Swalwell said just the other day, he is on board for 2020.
I like him too.

Maybe its time for a West Coast Ticket !

Harris is a definate yes for me.

4. I saw her on The View today, really the first time at little length, & she says the correct things

but I got just coldness, no relatability/feeling. It's the difference between a laundry list of "issues" and the personal connection. It's too early but I'm drawn to: Eric GARCETTI, Kamala HARRIS, and Sherrod BROWN. It's spectacular all the wonderful Dems we *always* have!

7. I saw her and said to hubby she has

Political speak down perfectly. Nothing sounded authentic. She was more when she first started, its like the power has gone to her head like many.

After Al though I would never support her in primary.

5. I've been saying for a long time...

.... Gillibrand is an opportunist. First, she sells out the Clintons. Then she throws Al Franken under the bus for her next opportunity, and there are a lot of in-between in there that I'm not mentioning.



Gillibrand said during her re-election bid this year that she would serve out her six-year term as New York's junior senator.

After easily winning re-election Tuesday, U.S. Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand said Thursday night she will give "a long, hard thought of consideration" to running for president in 2020.
