Who’s the Best Democratic Candidate?
Right now, things look more up in the air than ever. Bernie is showing exceptional polling strength, but he’s grouchy and he’s vulnerably to the left politically. And he’s the oldest of the old. Reports of Biden’s failings keep surfacing. Warren is still reeling from her clumsy handling of the Medicare for All business and wasn’t helped by initiating a spat with Bernie. Klobuchar appears to me to be the best candidate, but for some reason she’s way behind the leaders in the polls. Buttigieg strikes me as too young, too inexperienced, and talks too much like a computer program. Bloomberg is a force to be reckoned with –– Our billionaire can best your billionaire, a dispiriting thought.
Any of the above would be preferable to another four years of Trump by an astronomically wide margin.
