I gotta say—I have incredible respect for Tulsi. She’s going up against the military industrial complex and the same major industries as Bernie. The establishment is trying to shut her out, and doing a pretty good job of it.
Warren is torture to watch and listen to. She used to be the truth teller a lot of people were attracted to, but she lost that cache. I used to think she’d be the first woman president. She can’t seem to get any traction.
There’s a local article about Gillibrand going to a church in Spartanburg and addressing the congregation with the familiar pastor-type oratory cadence. “Inauthentic,” a congregant said. Since S.C. is the first major hurdle for the candidates, I’ll be hanging out in some black churches, listening to some liars and asking them questions and videoing their lies. (Biased much?? Haha.)
I hear you about the running mate question. With old guys like Bernie and
Biden, that question — and answer— is crucial. Committing to a Veep this early opens the Veep prospect to deeper investigation (longer) and leaves lots of time for them to verbalize uncoordinated takes on random news issues. Still, it might work to come out with a super popular character (a black chick would definitely spice up one of the old white guys’ chances), and some are saying Biden might boost his chances by committing to one term.
What you think so far?
