Mind blowing, intelligent discourse between Pete Buttigieg and Rachel Maddow. WOW.

I'm nearly overwhelmed. For a man so fresh into national politics, Mayor Pete is beyond impressive.

No doubt there will be video of her show on her portion of the MSNBC web site. It's a refreshing watch, after such a sad and horrible day.

9. I had to look up the word "bifurcate"

 

The vocabulary alone is impressive, lol. I thought I was reasonably well read, had an above average vocabulary, then I watch these two. Time to start reading The New Yorker again...

I love hearing intelligent people have a discussion without trying to one-up each other. The way they make coming up with clear and succinct explanations look easy is so graceful.

12. I think Mayor Pete could give that guy, James, on Jeopardy a run for his money.

 

Mayor Pete isn't just intelligent & incredibly knowledgeable. He is very people smart as well, and it shows.

At first, I thought her question was a bit indelicate. Essentially, it was, "I came out earlier so what took you so long?" But he was GREAT!

Yes, he's beyond impressive!

15. No, that wasn't her question AT ALL

 

Rachel's question was much more nuanced and personal: "I came out early because I couldn't bear NOT being out. How did you bear waiting so long?"

It's a very insightful question.

14. Only one bad reply for the Mayor

 

When asked about his foreign policy ideas, he gave a very mediocre reply. What I was hoping for? Rehire all of the career diplomats that the Cheeto Tweeter fired, and ask for their guidance going forward

He probably hasn't hired a foreign policy advisor yet.

21. That's fair, he's definitely a smart cookie

 

He knows 7 languages, Rhodes Scolar... Intellect - something that is lacking in the White House right now.

18. Agreed, & yet ... you're supporting Biden?

 

Please understand, I mean that as good-natured teasing! No offense intended.



Give Mayor Pete a serious look, he made me change my candidate preference.

One reason why:

23. I am supporting Biden, but have a VERY open mind

 

My main reason is, I think we need someone with a minimal learning curve, to take over in 2020. Someone already respected, despite any 'flaws', by much of the world and knows the ins and out of who we're dealing with, and how to deal with them. Ideally I'd love to see a Biden/Harris or Biden/Warren so that the 2nd in command already has a good grasp of the ins and outs of Washington DC. In normal times, this wouldn't be such an issue, but we are most definitely NOT living in normal times.

I really, really like Mayor Pete. I haven't been this impressed by a young politician since I saw Barack Obama speaking at the Democratic Convention, in 2004. My only hesitation, at this point, is his lack of national political experience. He's young and in a cabinet position, he'd gain that experience, in no time. It is going to be fascinating to watch his career develop.

As an FYI, in 2020, I was a big Bernie supporter who whole heartedly supported Hillary. I'd still gladly support him as the candidate, but my gut tells me that his time has passed. I could be wrong - I often am.

The top portion of my list is like a traffic jam, with very few "I sure hope not" candidate and a couple "Hmmm. Must learn more about this one" candidates.

I actually see many of the people running, on our ticket, to be fantastic candidates for cabinet posts.

19. That conversation was so refreshing.

 

I don't think either of them used the same adjective twice. Such a welcome change from Bonespurs' stultifyingly dull and repetitious vocabulary.

22. He is the exact opposite

 

of that person in the white house.

People who mention his age...have not seen him
People who mention is lifestyle...have not seen him

He is the real deal and speaks so much truth to power, he is scary smart.

I can't wait to see th media try to beat this guy up, I have a feeling he is sharp enough to shame reporters and the media who try to pigeon hole him.

Bring it, Pete can handle it.
