13. The choice is finally clear, now


I was disappointed (though not surprised) that my preferred candidate (Jay Inslee) got no traction. The media ignored him, and so did almost everyone else. Talk about someone whose policies were loved, and whose person was ignored. If ever there was someone qualified to be Secretary of the Interior or EPA head, it's Jay, although at this point, he's probably content to be a really popular governor of Washington.

When the Texas primary rolled around, I pretty much flipped coins, as I was torn between 3 of the candidates left (Buttigieg, Klobuchar and Biden).

But now, it's between Biden and Trump. If that choice is not a no-brainer for a Democrat, then either you're not a Democrat or you have no brain. Those of us who had other preferences early on will just have to deal with it. It's preferable to dealing with another four years of the McConnell presidency.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
