I have a former professor that taught in Mayor Pete's back yard. Says Pete is 100% the real deal

said he was wise beyond his years and totally selfless.

Said he was getting his bumper stickers this week.

said if he still lived there, he would be taking a leave and campaign for Mayor Pete

2. I can't help but think he's a longshot

 

Mayor Pete is so young and unknown at this point, it seems he must realize the very high odds. On the other hand, time is on his side. A good showing now will certainly help him on future presidential bids. Mayor Pete would be higher on everyone's list next time, and who knows, maybe by then he'll be Governor Pete or Senator Pete.

3. Ah, can you say Barack Obama???

 

Both hard names to pronounce and lived up to their potential. The man could win.

5. A lot of people said the same of Obama as well as Trump and look what happened with both.

 

Mind you I am still on the fence and will remain so because to me the one I will support come hell or high water is whoever wins the nomination because the most important thing is making sure Trump does not see a 2nd term.

7. When you stop to think about it,

 

both had very little experience politically.

The party wanted Obama and did everything in their power to promote him. I don't know how the Dems feel about Mayor Pete on a national level. He does have the support of the party faithful in the Midwest.

6. If Mayor Pete doesn't get nominated this election, he's definitely in the future lineup.

 

He's probably more ready than Beto, who I think should season and do a lot of good in Congress first.

My feeling at the moment is I want to see Warren/Harris first, or possibly Harris/Buttigieg with Warren as Attorney General.

4. We keep getting good, honest people for candidates.

 

While the Republicans keep getting slimy, horrible, stupid ones.

The difference is vast but half the country still wants Republicans.
