In November I will vote for a Democrat for president because I sincerely believe what is left of our democracy is in great peril.

    In a larger view our fecked up two party system is tantamount to having a two team professional sports league that is controlled by the owners. The system virtually guarantees both teams that they will always be in the playoffs. Both teams are assured of making big money no matter who wins or who comes in second place. Both teams are guaranteed that they will always share the power, sometimes more and sometimes less. Both teams make the rules. And while the fans watch and cheer or jeer the fans have no power whatsoever even though they pay and pay and pay to support the two team league.
    And yet, with all that power and all those guarantees and 20+ candidates... the current Democrat frontrunner is not really a Democrat at all. Unless he wins. Then he gets to say.

    I really don't see what a third party or a fourth would really add or change.

    I would never fail one - guaranteed.

    Now there's an idea: Let's have a section just for people who are old enough to vote but too young to drink.

    Not until the end of April, but Buttigieg will be on the ballot even if he drops out before then.

    There will be neither smoking nor anything that looks like smoking in UTOPIA.

    This was long ago decided by your betters.

    It isn't Russia that is his biggest problem. It is Bloomberg. Looking at RCP if Bloomberg wasn't in the race Biden could easily take out Sanders in California and Texas overwhelmingly. Two states that are delegate rich.

    Buttigieg came in a distant 3rd and with over 80% of the votes counted in the second round he has not earned any delegates. However his campaign is complaining about irregularities asking for recounts of votes.

    The non-progressives (i.e. most of the Democrat party) are clamouring for a sensible candidate. Democrats are finally realizing - way too late - that Biden is way past his "sell-by" date. He sucked all of the air out of the room, and most of the more moderate, sensible candidates were forced to exit early. Bloomberg is the only alternative, but from what I've seen in ads and debate, it's hard to imagine them doubling down on old white guy.

    I'm really at a loss to explain how Democrats can balance what they claim is one of the most important "must win" elections in years with what is certainly the weakest field of Democrat candidates in my lifetime.
