Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

Starting to realize the NYT was right, Warren and Klobuchar are our best shots

I've come to this conclusion for many reasons, but mainly because the male candidates have either too little experience, too much baggage, or too many questions surrounding their ability to complete 8 years in office.

To save time and drama, we should choose between Elizabeth Warren and Amy Klobuchar.

primary today, I would vote for:

1. I'm warming up a bit to Klobuchar.

 

But I wonder if her polling will pose an issue for her. Not really sure how she can get her name out more and get a big boost.

8. Klobuchar needed to win Iowa. She came in 5th. She's done.

14. She's a huge underdog and the only candidate from a state that borders Iowa. Iowa was critical.

 

5th in Iowa is devastating. The chaos of Iowa threw Klobuchar a lifeline and maybe - just maybe - she can justify continuing beyond NH if she finishes a strong 3rd there, but her odds at this point are close to 0.

5. Either of them would be fine with me...

 

... it would be cool to see Crooked Donald defeated by a woman, for the second time - and for the woman to be elected, too!

6. I'm with Warren all the way.

 

But Amy is currently my #2.

They'd make a great team, IMO.

7. For me Warren is ideal to put US financial system in order. I've warmed to Amy

 

because she has a sharp mind when she’s on.She’s a strong 2 for me now.

I do feel she shows signs of stage fright at times. I had it, too, and it is a very uncomfortable thing, especially when you can’t control your shaking.

Hopefully I am wrong and it won’t be a factor.

9. I would happily support either of the two

 

in fact over this primary season I have.

When I compared Amy and Liz on GOVTRACK, Amy accomplished more overall...Bernie was the worst of all the democratic senators during for president, I looked at the most recent 5 years..so it wasn't a one year analysis.

10. Ok so if everybody doesn't want to rally around Biden since he's not 'good enough' then Bloomberg

 

will be the nominee. CAN EVERYBODY GET REAL HERE?

Stop and frisk. I've already had confirmation from 2 millennials that they will not vote for him. We need our entire coalition on board this November.

I suppose anything is possible, but I have a really tough time seeing Mike fucking Bloomberg winning the nomination.

16. The plus with Bloomberg is that black folks will vote for him and so will the rest of us, the young

 

people can just stay home then as usual if 'they will not vote for him'...then they can pick up the god damn pieces of what that will yield.

17. Maybe, but another issue is, will Bloomberg divest from his companies?

 

I actually don't have a problem with his wealth, but I have a problem with conflicts of interest.

20. I agree with you there, beating trump is the most important thing.

 

I'll vote for anything and anyone over trump.

However, maybe you should reconsider my OP, as I truly believe that the two women candidates are free of all the baggage and drama.

I really like Biden and have spent the past year defending him against frivolous attacks. But let's be real, we're all super nervous when he speaks. The alternative to Biden would be Amy.

Why the resistance? Do you truly believe they're unelectable?

21. I think Biden or Bloomberg will give us the best chance in the swing states and beyond.

 

I'm not saying they are unelectable...I really don't truly know but just what I believe and feel.

Also black folks are not feeling these other candidates.

22. 3 terms mayor in NYC is not lack of experience.

 

I am not on board with Bloomberg, but three terms as a mayor in such a huge city is experience.
