    Bruh I think you're gonna have to switch that ticket. My man Pete has surged well past her recent polls. Plus the last thing Dems need right now is a presidential candidate from an "elitist" blue state.

    Pretty much.

    And I feel like so many Democrats are missing a simple fact that should be completely obvious to anybody who knows basic history.

    People do not want to vote for a member of Congress for President.

    The only two members of Congress to become President in my lifetime were HW and Obama.

    HW was in Congress for only four years. Then was UN Ambassador and head of the CIA and Republican primary runner up before he was VP.

    Obama was a Senator for a few months before he declared his candidacy. Then he beat six more experienced senators (Gravel, Dodd, Biden, Edwards, Hillary, McCain) to become President.

    Senators just donít win so I donít know why people especially Democrats keep trying to force it.

    The best thing that can happen for Democrats is for being mayor to be a legitimate path to the Presidency. That would greatly expand the pool to satisfy voters who tend to want someone with demonstrated competency yet who is new.

    If this happens with either on top, I want the Xanax, Zoloft and Valium concessions in the south and Midwest. I doubt they will be able to produce enough of the RX if it happens.

    But she won't take VP with him.

    One more point. If Kamala isnít President or VP of a brokered ticket, sheís probably the AG pick of the next Dem President.

    Yeah. I think there will be pressure on the President to find cabinet positions for candidates who want them. Kamala just doesn't seem like someone who would be happy spending 20+ years in the Senate. Wouldn't be surprised if Gilibrand ended up in the cabinet either.

    I get your point as to senators being elected president. It is rare throughout our history. And I agree with Harris as AG - natural fit, and you wouldn't lose a senate seat. But if Buttigieg is the nominee, I would like to think he'd have a running mate with considerable DC experience. Same reason an inexperienced Obama picked Joe. To me, Klobuchar makes a lot of sense. Good geography, and we wouldn't likely lose that senate seat.

    But I still gotta ask is Murca ready for a gay president, and is he electable in the general? I had thought America was ready for a mixed race president in Obama, but judging from the backlash, I believe I was mistaken. I say this as someone who likes Buttigieg and finds him refreshing. But whenever I think of nominating someone, I don't just think about who I like. I also think about who is most electable in a general. And while Buttigieg is rising in Dem polls, he still fares toward the bottom of the Dems vis-a-vis Trump. Sure, part of that is he's not well known. But how much of it is too many folks won't vote for someone who is gay or lesbian? I don't know.

    And don't say we've already had a gay president. Sure, we've had a gay president and a lesbian 1st lady, but it's not exactly like voters realized either of those things at those times.

    America will never be ďreadyĒ for any non-heteronormative President, including a female President. Electability is bullshit, we learned that in 2016. Being gay, being black, being a woman, none of that shit matters, the only question should be is whether or not a candidate can perform the duties of the office appropriately, ethically, and impartially.

    So, it appears over a quarter of Sanders supporters are still trash.
