And you get to run for President!

2. I can't fathom why that last guy jumped in

 

The governor of Montana. Really? He's a relative unknown entering this crowded field, which already has some real luminaries. And he's really late to the party. Not sure what makes him think he has a snowball's chance in hell.

3. He's not even the best-positioned Montana Democrat to run

 

Tester would be an actual realistic candidate, if we didn't need that Senate seat so badly.

5. i think..i heard.. that a lot of them know they arent going to win but they have a message...

 

...they want to get out..maybe a book deal or a speaking gig..or a contributor to some news media. Its a way of getting some pretty good exposure for awhile. Im liking the idea we are getting to know a lot of these candidates that have been a bit obscured.

6. Yes, with this many candidates

 

some are likely out for the greater good while others may have more self-serving purposes. But there are a lot of very promising individuals. It bodes well for the future of the Dems.

7. Do we really

 

want the repubs to do the clown car attacks? I personally think there are way too many folks running. I wish the number could be limited to however many can be on a one night debate stage. As is there will be two nights of debates. I'm watching the one Biden will be on. I'm also sorry that Harris doesn't like being asked about running with Biden as VP. I think it would be a great ticket. We have never had a woman VP. She would then be positioned to be President. Americans are still way behind other countries when it comes to electing women in leadership positions.
