Dear America, you sure love your old white men.

Elizabeth Warren was BORN in Oklahoma and appears to be coming in FOURTH place there.

I wish I was surprised.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden

Liz came very late to reaching out to AA communities and leaders. Her thing has been domestic economic policy to almost the exclusion of other issues.

And she’s an old white woman, so?

She’s not a blamer though and I am sure will bow out gracefully on her own timeline.

Or stopping him. The media has been telling us that for weeks. Warren serves neither of those purposes. It doesn’t have anything to do with her really. I wish she would have caught fire at the right time. I thought she was a great candidate.

Women have been elected in many countries around the world and even by some tribes in the US, since ages ago, but getting a woman anywhere near the presidency in the US (outside of Native American tribes), might take another 100 years or more, if ever. Americans just do not want women in charge of anything, except fetching beer and sandwiches and cleaning up. STILL.

3 out of 4 of the last presidential campaigns Democrats did not pick old white guys and in the 3 races that finished America chose them.

But carry on, why let facts get in the way.

I would have been happy with Warren as nominee and hope Klobuchar is the VP, but them being women had nothing to do with liking them.
