If Pete was the head of the DNC, they probably would have a working communications team. They'd be running ads about every atrocity Trump commits. Instead, we have a weak DNC chair who does virtually nothing.
We have some woke journalists doing that now. But if the DNC did it, it would be unceasing and at some point the rubes in the voting public who are undecided would blame the messenger.

Beyond that, according to Rachel Bitecofer it's not the undecideds who determine these elections. It's base turnout.

It's difficult for me, a news junkie, to keep up with the firehose of daily atrocities committed by Trump. "The base," I suspect are even busier people who don't have time in their lives to keep up with it all. For them to turn out in numbers we need them to be informed. The DNC isn't in danger of being blamed for over-saturation of disseminated information, because they do NOTHING.
I love the poorly educated!!!

POC would like to have a place on the ticket. A place at the table is nice, but on the ticket is probably necessary. So, Biden/Harris or Warren/Booker are good pairings right now.

I really like Mayor Pete. I think he'll do great things in the future.

Maybe Liz will tap him as VP? :daydream:
Works for me!

Love me some Pete, and I expect him to have a long and excellent career in American politics, but that closer falls flat for me.

I've had it up to here with the "winning" trope.

I know what his point is, but still, aside from the tropiness, I have a long list of things more important than winning.
No matter where you go, there you are! :towel:

Thanks, :geezertowel: and Lani. I could see it, but it wouldn't play.

I think I may need a break from it all.

I took the statement, the full one (mebbe I should have quoted it), that who wins the nom isn't the important thing. He was talking about matters that were more important.

I kind of see Mayor Pete as Secretary of State rebuilding our trashed alliances and putting the Saudi's back in their place.

Buttigieg should probably be POTUS' Chief of Staff. Essentially the second highest position in Government, although generally unheralded. But that would put Mayor Pete in the main tent where the decisions are made.

The Hill
Buttigieg: Biden gave 'bad' debate answer on slavery's legacy

South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) on Sunday said his fellow Democratic presidential candidate gave a “bad answer” about slavery’s legacy effect on modern race relations.

“It was a well-intentioned answer, and it was a bad answer. The reason that we are seeing racial inequity in this country is that it was put into place on purpose,” Buttigieg told CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday.

“And I'm not just talking about slavery beginning 400 years ago. I'm talking about policy decisions that happened within living memory that excluded black Americans from everything from fully being able to access the G.I. Bill to labor protections. These have consequences,” he added.

Numerous debate viewers were mystified by an answer Biden gave in Thursday’s Democratic debate, which suggested “mak[ing] sure you have the record player on” could ensure children learned more words.

“I think he was trying to get at the issue of how many words infants hear as children. Interesting issue. There is a much bigger picture here. And it has to do with inheritance. It has to do with the wealth gap and the fact that, if you are black in this country, as a consequence of systemic racism, you start out with less,” Buttigieg said.

“In the same way that, if you save a dollar, it compounds over the years and becomes more and more, the same is true of a dollar stolen. And that has happened to black Americans through generations,” he added.

All of Joe's gaffes that relate to POC are not going to get Joe's opponents anywhere. POC love Joe. Joe was Barack Obama's Veep. Stop attacking Joe and stop attack President Obama!
