Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Thu Feb 20, 2020, 12:29 AM

 

WOW! I was already going to caucus for Senator Warren on Saturday, but after tonite I have one Q:

How is any other Democrat not 100 percent on the Liz train?

She was so obviously the person on stage who would make the best candidate and the best chief executive.

INMHO: It is not even close.

2. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a comeback. It makes me sad she hasn't caught on

 

It's like you have Michael Jordan in the NBA draft and they are taking players who just can't match him. In this case her.

9. I wonder if someone coached her to not be herself for the last month or two.

 

But she is definitely back to the Warren that was shooting to the top of the pack last fall. Maybe some campaign consultant or something tried to get her to be more poll-tested or whatever. She was amazing tonight.

39. You got it wrong. She isn't wired to attack team members. She excels at

 

targeting the power and corruption.

It isnít rhetoric to her, itís who she is.

She took down the powerful Bloomberg with precision.

She will be more lethal aiming at the corrupt Trump.

Corruption. Structural change.

It covers all levels of what will improve government and the country when we kick that Nazi out the door.

4. She handled Bloomberg like a champ.

 

But she also threw pot shots at everyone on stage. If people only remember her interactions with Bloomberg then she'll be fine, but there's a chance her attacks on all of the other candidates will backfire.

16. +++++++++++++

 

She's head and shoulders above the other candidates, in my opinion.

Corporate media sidelining her + misogyny + ignorant or deliberate mischaracterization of her policies as "radical"--when they are really just a return to good governance--are why she isn't miles ahead.

She would do the most to help the most people.

Iím all in for Liz. I have no second choice. As far as Iím concerned, thereís Warren and then thereís everybody else.

17. There's something really weird going on.

 

Democrats, hear me out:

It makes sense to look at people's performance in the swing states while jostling about in the primaries, but if there's a candidate that we like, shouldn't we ask this:

What can we do as the majority party, as the brighter, more conscientious oarty, to bridge the gap between who we like and swing state Democrats and fence sitters? Hasn't it simply been a matter of getting real, fact-based information to Americans? This is one of the most uninformed, politically clueless countries on Earth. Send out massive numbers of Democratic diplomats to help the South in particular conceptualize how they have been voting against their own interests for decades.

We should be leading this process, not letting the lowest common denominator scare us into cowardice and settling for second or third best candidates.

21. I supported her for the longest time...

 

...back when she was competitive with Biden in the polls, but then she got knocked for not being to answer questions about Sanders's Medicare for All plan and yet has clung closely to Sanders this entire time, even though he basically operates in the same lane as her. She should have shown some of that fire against Sanders at some point, but she didn't, and now is left picking up scraps while the candidate she defends almost as much as herself is now the projected frontrunner. I understand not wanting to piss off those unhinged Sanders supporters out there, but what has embracing Sanders gotten her? A lot of snake emojis on social media?

26. My wallet has been on the Liz train from the very start of her campaign

 

She was great tonight. I mean, she always is. One of Bidenís speeches early on brought me to tears, and I do trust him. Then Beto entered, and I knew the phenomenon he was for Texas. I was pretty torn up when he exited.

Biden and Warren have been my top candidates the whole time. I have stood by Biden while he was getting dragged down by the criminal in the WH, because I do think he knows where all the levers and switches are to turn all the lights back on in the Oval Office.

Warren, though? Clearly, she can take care of herself.

I know that many - men and women - do not like the nicknames that others use.

I remember in 1996, Elizabeth Dole literally shut out Lesley Stahl because the tried to refer to her as Liddy..

32. She is a sharp debater. Very bright. An expert in her area and champion for average Americans, but

 

all that has nothing much to do with qualifications or experience related to the duties of chief
executive, leader of the free world, commander in Chief, international leader etc. Her lack of
experience in world affairs is problematic. These are perilous times.

Hilary Clinton had more of the background needed and I feel a woman candidate will have to be the
best qualified because of not hatred towards women, but lack of familiarity with women in the, highest office, nation leaders. I think we did elect a woman, but consider that Hilaryís related background was extensive.

she helped put us in this situation by misinforming people on trade while bashing Obama/Clinton right up until 2016 election, etc. Really that simple.
