Alan Howe is running in the Democrat primary for the 2020 US Presidential election. Do you know who Alan Howe is? Neither do I. (I wrote this entire blog post and published it with his name as Adam Howe. I'm legitimately only 90% sure that the photo to the left is actually Alan Howe, the … Continue reading Alan Howe: I can’t even.
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
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
