8. He said something nice about a Republican.

 

I guess the real standard is if you like a politician, then they can say nice things about Republicans.

If you don’t like them, then they can’t say nice things about Republicans.

13. You were put upon about Hagel and Biden liking

 

one another.

You had an OP yesterday about some Republican appointees to Obama’s administration being the same as 3rd party voters voting for Stein.

You don’t have to answer because your first post already cleared it up for me—you like Pete, so it’s okay for him to say nice things about Republicans.

26. If you think I ever implied anything else ever, you thoroughly

 

misunderstood me. I apologize for the confusion. Obama was a great pesident who appointed Republicans in his cabinet, and that was a wonderful thing. Having people in your campaign or administration who disagree with you or might identify with another party only helps strengthen our side.

3rd party making Democrats stronger, which makes no sense.

But thanks for agreeing that saying something nice about a Republican doesn’t mean you aren’t progressive.

20. You put in writing what I felt..

 

about Mayor Pete. Regardless of how he does - and I hope he makes it all the way to the White House - it is comforting to know that there is a politician out there like him. It gives me hope.

In days gone by, our political leaders were often referred to as statesmen. Not so much anymore, right?

Pete is a statesman.

19. Totally agree that...

 

No other candidate, thus far declared, can deliver decisive blows so diplomatically, without the bitterness and anger of our current politicians.

I really think Pete is special, and is just what our country needs to crawl out from under the burdens trump has put us under.

Obama was like that (the standard by which I judge all candidates). Calm, cool, and collected.

Velvet Steamroller. I love it. Some folks are concerned that Pete would be too soft to go up against trump. I don't think so. If you saw him on CNN's town hall, he was nice, extremely knowledgeable, and very tactful. But he delivered some blows as well. And when he did, it was very effective because he backed it up with real facts.

41. I have to wonder how tRump will handle Pete as a candidate

 

He has to know that if he goes after Pete for being gay, even in the slightest, his re-election is toast. The Maga crowd will eat it up , though. I don't think tRump will be able to resist. Look what happened with Dr. Ford. He had to rip her in front of his followers. He just can't contain himself.
