12. Sorry, it was not. It was twisting facts in a discriminatory way and he just did it again in

 

post debate interview. He says Sanders is operating as if itís the Ď60s, because of the discussion about Cuba... Pete said in the interview itís because times have changed now. Hello, Sanders did not bring up the issue, he was responding to the question put to him about it. Thatís just bad-faith ageist stereotyping on Peteís part.

I thought the comment summarized the discussion accurately.

But I am a Pete fan. You apparently aren't.

tonight. I have doubts he can get the nomination (I would be fine with that), but he will certainly be a candidate for a cabinet job.

8. I agree but ....

 

Talking over everyone made his look really bad. My wife liked him before, can't stand him now. "Typical male bluster". He listened to too many people saying he needed to show passion, and came across rude, which isn't normally him.

I really like him, and have sent him a significant amount of cash, and I want him to stay in the public arena, but this probably cost him the candidacy.

10. Not sure how to formulate this without offending

 

Heís sort of my ďvanityĒ favorite.... if I could vote for a candidate that may not have a chance of winning it all... and vote for someone when I didnít have to worry about the hellfire of Trumpism for four more years... Pete would be my favorite. But gotta go with who has the best chance of beating Trump.

20. On understood.

 

As a gay man I was wondering. Iíve heard they expressed and understand the viewpoint. I do find it interesting that it hasnít been sort of reflexively criticized as a viewpoint.

supportive statement about his husbands education background. Really hope that our country is coming closer to choosing someone for any office based on qualifications.

22. So hard to choose

 

For me it was Pete, Amy, Elizabeth. Bloomberg is out. Bernie is out. Steyer has a chance, but for tonight, although he did well, he's out. For me, it's between Pete and Amy.

And, I don't know if they can win, but these are the two that I am responding to best. Pete is very smart, has a military background, good family man, and he makes sense. I don't care that he's gay (let's face it, that is problematical), and I don't care that he is younger. Both he and Amy focused on what I am very worried about: beating Trump. That's what makes the choice agonizing.

I won't cry over any of them, and I am going to support whichever one of them gets the nomination.

Steyer is right, and he did start months ago to run ads against Trump. That's very much in his favor. And, he said he is scared of Trump winning. This shows he knows how much is at stake. He came right out and said very emotionally that the country is at stake.

On a totally irrelevant note, I would love to say, "President Pete."

28. He is my candidate, for all the reasons in your thread!

 

So sharp, the way he organizes his thoughts and then expresses them; the calm intelligent demeanor, and on and on.

I too would love to be able to call him President Pete.
