  1. I think Biden or Warren will leave soon because their campaigns are burning through a lot of cash. I doubt they can fundraise like they did before.

  2. I heard a talker saying that neither Steyer nor Bloomberg expect to win, and that they only became candidates to circumvent campaign spending rules.

    Will this work for them past the primaries?  Will the fact that they ran as candidates in Democrat primaries allow them to spend as much as they want during the general?

  3. Paul Steinhauser, in an article for Fox, predicted that fresh money will flow into the Amy Klobuchar campaign following her strong finish in New Hampshire.

    Is she going to draw all the support that has been supporting Biden and Warren?

    Are they going to steal the nomination from Bernie and give it to Amy?

    You know they know they cannot win with Pete.

    Hey 10 Cents, as reluctant as we might be, we are going to have to learn how to spell Beaut-edge-edge.

    “Buttigieg”

    Thanks, I checked and thought I got it right but had an extra g.

    Guys it’s Booty-Grab. That’s a soft “a” there in the end.

    Very unfortunate for an openly gay candidate to have the word Butt in their name.

    Quite the opposite. It’s hilarious. If someone put that in a novel it would be considered ridiculous: too on the nose. Instead, it’s our reality. (Or maybe it’s a simulation.)

    This is shaping up to be the most fun political year ever. And it’s only February.

  8. Our local radio host says, watch for an avalanche of reps, senators, celebs endorsing Bloomberg in the next few weeks, courtesy of the arm-twisting funding branch of the DNC. If that’s their strategy I think it’ll backfire because the Pete-Amy fans will get angry that they’re being scammed as badly as the Bern. Could be a full-out Animal House Food Fight.

    One can hope.

    I doubt the glitterati will rally ‘round Bloomie; they’re more likely to get behind Pete. (See what I did there?)

    Lefty is stuck. I’m thinking there will be no clear winner by convention time. That’s when the real fun begins.

  10. Do you think they know it’s hopeless? (I know I shouldn’t get presumptuous, but it’s getting comical how the size of Trump”s rallies in these primary states are orders of magnitude larger than the biggest Dem gatherings.) Maybe the party bosses are letting the presidential melee build because they are secretly putting all their effort into D Senate races. Because if it’s a forgone conclusion that Trump will win, but they control the Senate, they can impeach AND remove him in his second term.
