What Kind of Democratic Candidate Is Most Likely to Beat Trump?
Two super-smart political observers I much admire are Robert Reich and Jennifer Rubin. Reich says that the only nominee who can beat Trump is one with a full-blown progressive agenda, namely Sanders or Warren. Rubin’s view is that the candidate most likely to win is one with a moderate realistic agenda.
I’m not sure who’s right, but I agree with a Huffington Post headline this morning stating that Pete Buttigieg (a leading moderate contender) was wrong to meet with super rich donors in a billionaire’s crystal wine cave, an event that, sickeningly, reminded me of Hillary Clinton’s highly paid speeches in private to Goldman Sachs executives.
Amy Klobuchar remains as my tentative choice for the Democratic nominee
