Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

I finally settled on someone to support.

I always said I'd wait until the debates to decide on someone. So I have. I've finally settled on supporting who I think is the best candidate - Mayor Pete. I know he's not likely to win the nomination. But there's no one else I feel I can support at this time. IMO, he's the best. I've consistently liked him from the beginning, and my admiration has only grown over time.

If he doesn't make it, he'll be dropping out. Then I'll have to decide again who to support. But for the time being, I'm going with the one I like for so many reasons.

(My second choice is Klobuchar, another dark horse.)

This is unusual for me. I usu. settle on someone who turns out to be the frontrunner. But this time there is no Pied Piper, no automatic (for me) candidate with everything...experience, charisma, intelligence, articulate, good sense of humor, fast on his feet. Pete has all these things except the great sense of humor. He's pleasant and sometimes humorous, but not the sense of humor of Obama or Bill Clinton. It could be because this big campaign is so new to him. Anyway, for me it's Pete. Phew. I finally decided!

1. I can understand your decision

 

I'm on the fence between Pete and Joe right now. My head says Joe, but my heart says Pete.

3. Honeycombe8, congrats on a stellar choice!

 

Pete shows so much promise and he'll surely deliver. If it's not 2020 (I'm still hopeful), we know he's going to be a big part of this party's future.

But let's see if he can beat the odds in the primary first. His trajectory has been very impressive so far.

4. We have some really great choices

 

I agree with your number one.

He makes me feel the same as President Barack Obama did.

He gives me much hope.

5. Welcome aboard the Buttigieg Express!

 

He raised a lot of cash last quarter, so hopefully can build out organisations on the ground and try and make some more impact after his rough couple of weeks with that tragic shooting in South Bend.

Woot woot

6. I can see the Buttigieg express gaining momentum.

 

Just to see Trump stumble trying to pronounce his name would be worth watching.

8. Oh, I hadn't thought of that. You're probably right!

 

It won't be so obvious that Trump can't deny it, but it'll be there. It's so obvious, I can't believe someone hadn't thought of it by now.
