10. Interesting Points

 

Can't argue against any of the points made above.

I will say I am more surprised by the surge Elizabeth Warren is getting. She isn't as gifted a politician as Mayor Pete who seems to say just the right thing at the right time; truly a gift. Also he has that likability that you cannot teach or buy. Helps that he's young and happy.

That said, Elizabeth Warren is more of a policy wonk. She seems to have a plan for just about everything....in a good way. I just didn't think the public would latch onto that. But it seems to be working for her. Also, she is authentic. She probably makes a terrible poker player - when some topic angers her, like the Hyde Amendment, there is no mistaking her anger and conviction that the poor and under-represented women are the ones who suffer. Win or loose the Democrats are better off with her having run.

Finally, I agree, these two seem to use scripture in a good way. I can't say remember any Democrat being as effective.

Wonder if they would be as effective if the Orange Thing wasn't POTUS.

Cheers!
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
