The Democratic Debate: Houston Has Problems, Plans, and Candidates for President

With the “Warren vs Biden” matchup not really happening as advertised, and Bernie being Bernie but with a scratchy throat, the sizzle reels for the talking head shows are going to need something to cover other than Biden’s gaffes and word salad.

Mayor Pete

Symposium: I think a Buttigieg presidency would be incredibly boring. And frankly, I could use a bit of boring right now. Vote for Mayor Pete. And maybe, if we’re lucky, we can occasionally forget that he’s President.
