    OK, Trump will welcome all of his class or even of higher class. Trump loves to deal with such types.

    I have no idea what you're trying to say nor why you've taken three posts not to say it.

    See Social security was designed to be an old age insurance / pension plan, not a progressively structured anti-poverty program like WIC or SNAP so it was more like an insurance contract, than a government run program. That how they got buy in from upper middle class districts. Trust me, when we start running out of money they will try to find ways to introduce some means testing in it. Eventually the rich boys won't be getting as much in the way of Inflation adjustments etc.

    When you come down, think about it. There are reasons why high and cars don't mix.

    Biden toyed & trifled with Ryan it was the biggest beat down I ever saw in a VP debate, moreso than Benson over Quayle.
    Benson embarrassed Quayle with a oneliner while Biden torched Ryan from beginning to end.

    That's why I thought Biden would be good candidate this time around. What happened to Biden? I guess 8 years of
    aging matters a lot. He's just not up to the task any more & it's been obvious since his 2020 campaign began!

I think I just don't like him in a visceral way. I never liked Warren, she recovered my esteem last week, just to lose it again this week. I find her pretty annoying.

    I'm a bit troubled with the fact that Bernie didn't handle well the pressure and the attacks. This doesn't bode well for the continuation because he'll be attacked more and more, and then, if he wins the nomination, he will be brutally attacked by Trump and the right wing.

    Bloomberg came across to me as competent, a big contrast with him coming across as an asshole last time.

    Steyer had some great moments but he is irrelevant to the race.

    Amy also did well but again, she has always polled in the single digits, she has no chance.

    Biden efficiently pandered to his crowd, trying to solidify his AA support.

    I think this race may very well become one between Bloomberg, Sanders, and Biden.

    I can't see how Buttigieg, Klobuchar, Warren, and Steyer would be able to win the nomination.

    If Biden recovers hugely, wins SC, and does well on ST he will be back and the race will remain a 3-way one. If he loses SC he is toast since the lack of any momentum will hurt him on ST too, and the race will be only between Bloomberg and Sanders.

    As of now I think Sanders is still the most likely one to win the nomination, followed by Bloomberg, then Biden, and all others have zero chance.
    Pete and Warren were dreadul tonight. They talked out of turn, overran their time and interrupted the others. I don't think
    those idiots realize that when we watch that we know that their thinking is that rules are for others and that is how they
    will govern. Bloomberg, Bernie and Steyer played by the rules and they conducted themselves like leaders.

    Klobuchar would be a good VP due to being a decent senator. Not to mention she is female and most importantly from Minnesota. This election is all about 4 states, Florida, Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania. I think everyone can see Florida is getting redder and Pennsylvania is getter bluer. So the real battle ground Michigan and Wisconsin. Klobuchar could pull Wisconsin to whoever the democrat President nominee is.

    edit: Also any senator pick for VP plays well in holding Virginia blue.

    Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical, liberal, fanatical, criminal.
