The machine don't like him. Joe Biden wins the SC primary and cruises to victory. SC......really....they decided our democratic nominee? This is only my opinion.

Yeah, I guess you could ignore all of the other states Biden won.

He really struggled to get the African-American vote while Biden had a lock on it.

Simple as that.

D@mned minorities voting against your guy who is the only obvious choice they should me making again, amirite? What a pain, if only THEY would do what you want them to do in the voting booth.

Better luck next time.

At what point has the MO of the Republican Party NOT been to find a way to make something not work and garner such outrage that privatizing it doesn't become a viable option?

I still don't think Americans are ready to have a gay man in the White House. It may be fine for those liberals in Colorado to have a gay governor, but it might be too much nationally.

That being said, he recently became a Michigan resident, and I think his experience as the Secretary of Transportation could be a big selling point if he ever wanted to run for governor after Big Gretch. Again, there may be people who won't want an openly gay governor in a state with some deep red pockets. But he would get a huge boost from the auto companies.

Would still be better than someone who thinks a government works like a corporation.  News flash: "government" and "corporation" (and "business" etc. etc.) are different words in the dictionary for a reason.

I distinctly remember wondering why Pete got relegated to transportation when he clearly has the talent and skill to be much greater.

I can't think of a single clip/conference/presser over the last ~2 years that made me think second guess that assessment.

Yeah, they STOLE votes by people with whom they had no contact voting for someone other than Bernie.

People didn't vote for Bernie. Deal with the fact that there are people who have values, ideas, perspectives, and judgments different from you.

Polis would be a better choice for president than Pete.  Pete's a do nothing centerist.  He'd do the same thing Obama did. Start negotiations in the middle and work to the right.  America is already waaaaay too far to the right now.

McKinsey & Co. does not hire dreamers, they hire problem solvers. That's exactly what he is.

He ticks all the boxes for me. I want him to have a shot. I'll live with it if he f*cks up.

HoveringFungus: why Pete got relegated to transportation


Well, a couple of things. With an annual budget of $87 billion and nearly 60,000 employees under his leadership, Secretary of Transportation is hardly a relegation.

Secondly, he was a midwestern mayor and is only 40 years old.

Remember, Adorable Smackbottom is the one who said, "I'm not sure Biden is any better than Trump."

SC is truly a window into the heart of the American electorate. My point went right by you.

I like Mayor Pete.  The political stars were not aligned for him in 2020, but I absolutely would consider him for future elections.  This is before the added incentive that I can't think of a GOP option who wouldn't be completely horrid.
 
2022-09-26 9:45:49 AM  
I would like to see a battle of wits between Buttigieg and DeSantis but that would be a murder.
