Senator Booker is an incredibly smart, accomplished guy - Stanford, Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar, and Yale Law. He was a community activist, a mayor, and now a US Senator. He understands the need for criminal justice reform and reform to close the gap on income inequality. And he seems to be an incredibly nice … Continue reading Cory Booker: My opinion is irrational
I don’t really understand why Wayne Messum is running for President. There are several “underdog” candidates who are ostensibly running because they believe they have a very unique or urgent message that they want to get out there. Yang wants to talk about the impact of automation, Stalwell is focused on gun control, and Williamson … Continue reading Wayne Messum: I’m a No.
I love Senator Elizabeth Warren. If I am identifying my personal role models, she definitely makes the list. Her personal story is one of a woman who did not let anyone tell her that she couldn’t have it all. Senator Warren has spent her political career taking on big business – financial institutions and for-profit … Continue reading Elizabeth Warren: My Favorite Bad-Ass
I have been preparing for this moment for a year, but I am not prepared. Today I said goodbye to my sweet boy.
My opinion on Beto O’Rourke is less than fully informed, but not from lack of trying. And that might be the biggest problem that I have with O’Rourke’s candidacy right now. I’ve done a lot of reading, but other than learning that O’Rourke is generally a moderate Democrat who was a teenage hacker in a … Continue reading Beto O’Rourke: Sure.
This blog post picks on Senator Gillibrand, but only as an example of a bad habit that so many political candidates can't seem to shake. There happens to be a perfect (and current) visual example in Gillibrand, but so many campaigns suffer from a similar disease. Here are some screenshots of a video that Senator … Continue reading I – disease.
If Joe Biden and Al Gore had a really boring baby...
My write-up on Tulsi Gabbard will be pretty short, because even after listening to her talk, I'm not sure what she's all about. (I'm basing this on a few articles and a few recent interviews - including her CNN Town Hall.) At this point in the race, most of the candidates believe in essentially the … Continue reading Tulsi Gabbard: Evasive AF
So far, I've been able to form a pretty solid opinion on the candidates that I've taken the time to get to know. Senator Amy Klobuchar remains a bit of a wild card for me. I want to get behind her really straight forward approach. Like Buttigieg, who is almost certainly my candidate until he's … Continue reading Amy Klobuchar: I want to want to back her
I've gotten way behind on posting my thoughts on the candidates - and if you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, it's probably clear that I've essentially settled on my Buttigieg as my frontrunner. But I do still want to be fair to the others and try to explain why I've landed where I've landed. … Continue reading Kirsten Gillibrand: I guess, maybe
