Pete Buttigieg...

Bonus Quote of the Day
February 22, 2019 at 5:02 pm EST By Taegan Goddard


“Look, you could be a senior senator and have never managed more than a hundred people in your life. I not only have more years of government experience than the president of the United States, but I have more years of executive experience than the vice president of the United States, and more wartime experience than anybody who arrived in the office since George H.W. Bush.”

— South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg, quoted by the Washington Post, on his experience to be president despite being 37 years old.

11. I made Biden my avatar but I just as easily could be Undecided because that's truly where I am now.

 

Biden's not officially in the race and he may not run. Even if he does, he may not do well. So, I officially like him and he's my early fave, but I like others as well, including Buttieg. I am very much looking forward to the primaries and the debates. Bring it on!

17. I had a good first gut feeling about Julio Castro, too.

 

I'm just not ready to decide yet. I do have my 'definitely not' list down however, but I'll just keep those details to myself. I'm like you though, lark. Bring it on! ❤

7. He is a good candidate but be CAREFUL.. when he doesnt get he nomination.. dont go vote

 

He is a good candidate but be CAREFUL.. if he doesnt get the nomination.. dont go vote for the green party candidate or just dont show up.

In order to kick TRUMP out of office. We all have to vote for the DEM candidate period. NO MATTER WHAT.

Dont let petty ideology get in the way.

that you have to worry about when it comes to voting for a third party and it isn't Buttigieg supporters.

9. I heard him on the radio a couple of days ago

 

On 1A with Joshua Johnson. I liked him. I particularly liked how he said, "Well, I've got the gay millennial midwestern Iraq war vet vote sewn up". I could see him going the distance.

situation changes. I really do think we will hear more from Mayor Pete in the near future.

I have no doubt his fan base will continue to grow as he gets more exposure.

There are so many great dems that it’s an embarrassment of riches from which to choose.

Buttigeg is going places and I do believe he will be our president one day.

25. Right, and right again!

 

I hope you're right on the latter point, anyway.

On the former, there is no doubt. I also love Beto O'Rourke. I think Kamala Harris (your pick, whom I also respect) is fully capable of becoming president. Andrew Yang brings many intriguing ideas to the table. Warren, Brown, Booker, any of them would be fine, IMO.

I love Joe Biden too, but I am concerned about a president who would be 80 at the end of his term. I know that's "ageist." Maybe it's because so many of my extended family members suffered serious physical and/or mental decline in their 70s.

16. Remember our last 3 Democratic Presidents...

 

'76 Carter - outsider, virtual unknown
'92 Clinton - outsider, virtual unknown
'08 Obama - outsider, virtual unknown

There is precedent for successful Democratic candidates coming out of nowhere and winning it all!

Go Mayor Pete!!

"elder statesmen/women", despite their great records of accomplishments and qualifications.

34. As I've pointed out before, the average age of our last 5 Democratic presidents was...

 

...48 when taking office.

But I think Buttigieg is going to have to wait another couple cycles. In the meantime, he has other options besides the presidency. He clearly has a very bright future.

to know the minute I say Pete has no chance, he might win it all.

Don't write this fella off. He is the smartest guy in almost any room he enters.

Opponents underestimate him at their political peril.

However it's much too early for me to commit. I'm not going to decide on anyone before I've seen a couple debates.

I was really impressed with him during that nomination process.
Can't remember the date - the last one where Perez got voted in. No time to go down the google rabbit hole - but it must be out there!

pronouncing it, but can't find tape.

Kamala (sp) made hers easy by saying comma,la. wish we had a reminder like that for Mayor Pete.
