    What is it you like about Pete?
    Is there a set of policies, or just he's the guy that might beat Trump?

    I understand what you are saying.
    It's like when Trump won.
    He seized the opportunity when it was there.
    He saw how the demos were moving and he found his niche and pushed in all his chips.
    That's how analytics are best used.
    Its what the A's do.
    And what Pat Riley does.
    Pete may not know exactly but he probably has the instincts to follow the opening and get the first down.

    It's policy and personality. He supports all the major Democratic policies but he's a little less extreme than Bernie and Warren, but more innovative than Biden. He genuinely seems thoughtful and interested about policy, so I don't think he will push an agenda for the wrong reasons. He's the only candidate who has given much time to democratic reform: ideas to depoliticize the Supreme Court, getting rid of the Senate filibuster and the electoral college... I like his idea for expanding accessibility to government grants in exchange for kids working in under-serviced areas to help their communities, that's just one example of him looking for different ways to solve issues.

    As far as electability, that's not really the reason I like him. No one can really define electability, but it is a positive sign to see some of the polls. I would support the candidate I believe in the most regardless. That said, I do like his message of inclusiveness, he is the only Democratic candidate who is vocal about trying to get support from "Trump voters", and he is the only Democratic candidate who has been willing to go on FOX News.

    The policies are for electability.
    They change in office.
    Its about beating trump.
    Which is how Trump won.
    But if your thing is that you don't like Trump then why would you like to win like him?
    That's why I like Tulsi and Yang.
    Its not about beating Trump.
    Its about being better than Trump.
    Not being better in a holier than though way. But in a real way.
    Yangible in people's deeper emotions instead of the shallower ones that are easier to manipulate.
    They have to be better.
    In the ways that Trump can't help himself and be worse.

    She'd be our first Hindu vegan POTUS. She might drive beef prices up though. But Slurpees would be cheap & available to all.

    I can get behind that. But then, apparently, I'm a racist, according to really fucking ignorant cocksuckers anyway.

    Yeah ... I could live with Tulsi in the oval office.

    Biden cancels New Hampshire primary party appearance. He's calling voters names every day...
    Warren is losing traction. She'll be out after Super Tuesday...
    Very timely release of Bloomberg's "stop & frisk" comments...
    Buttigieg will fade in the south

    All of this tells me that the delegates will be split. No one will take a commanding lead...

    Brokered convention = Hillary

    The possibility is always out there but I'm sure with this much at stake they will be very very cautious.
