10. I (just myself) would frame it this way

 

Buttigieg has 8 years as an executive overseeing a far larger group of employees and staff and a larger budget than any Senator or Representative does. South Bend has a strong mayor system so the buck really did stop with him. He also had massive interfacing with the Federal and State governments as well, plus dealt with multivariate social, economic and public relations issues. Pete can scale it up just fine, and the POTUS also has a truly massive (literally thousands at primary, secondary, and tertiary levels) amount of support staff, so it is the big picture that matters, and he is so, so gifted in the big picture department.

I try to avoid saying absolute statements like 'outshines in every category' as that is far too broad and subjective and a bit harsh, but that is just me.


If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Pete Buttigieg
