I doubt they will exist for Democrats past this election cycle. They just aren't democratic, and as the party will continue to look to appease the more progressive side of the party they will get the boot.

Mmmm ok I'm a bit confused on some of your stances as they seem not super thought out but I will try to remain as impartial as possible. On healthcare, you probably would prefer Biden, Buttigieg or Klobuchar considering you seem very hung up on how things would be paid for. Can't guarantee it would .....

Apparently after the last debate, she commented that she needed to be more aggressive and speak more. Guess she is following up those convictions.

He has been the best at hurting Bernie so far. Mainly because he's the most prepared to sling shit and get dirty in the process.

Pete knows that Amy holds another 10% of the vote that he can try and win. Not sure attacking her like this is the way of winning that vote though.

Re: 2020 Democratic Primary

Biden's best debate so far. His stutter never helps him, but he seems fired up for once which is something that hasn't been his strong point. Still needs to make much better arguments for why his positions are better than Sanders though, when he pretty much only says it costs too much.

Re: 2020 Democratic Primary

Why did Bloomberg try and get on this stage? Surely he is better off going into Super Tuesday without being on this stage. Once the stage only has 2 or 3 people on it, he would stand a better chance as he can't get so ganged up on.
