I think he did pretty well personally.

He's going nowhere if Beto jumps in, all his donors will flock in that direction, but he presents himself very well, and he postures himself and sounds exactly like Obama. As for being competitive with the way things are stacking up, its probably not likely.

Klobuchar/Buttigieg 2020

18-year-old American with too much time on his hands and not enough motivation to waste it properly. Republican, if that even means anything anymore. Token Racial Minority. Token Gay Guy. Texan. 80's Pop Czar. Candy Corn/Disco Apologist and Aspiring Diplomat. Booker Antagonist, Goldwater Shill. Role Models include many dead people nobody cares about but who kinda did some cool stuff I guess.

Huh. Neat. Everybody’s jumping in, itll be interesting to watch.

Now the Democrats will have their own 16-17-20 person debates. That’s going to get ugly real fast. It might be better to have fewer debates and spread them out.

Their current vague plan is to randomly halve them rather than going undercard/overcard

I think we need a tournment style debate, with a series of 1 on 1 matchups where people vote on who won and should advance to the next round. Have different leagues like the "Old white guy league" or regionally like the "Midwestern league".

Williams has warmed considerably to Reed after the Rossi nomination convinced him the Reed admin is willing to nominate individuals that would roll back civil rights. If Reed signs the Ending Honoring the Confederacy Act, the hostilities will flare up again

I think we should put all the major candidates into a giant coliseum and scatter melee weapons throught the area, letting them know that only two are coming out alive, and whichever one kills more of the opposition gets the top spot on the ticket

The latter might be better in that with the former, you might have an issue with a category for “minority candidates” or “working class candidates”, and then it might be a bit subjective with people arguing this or that candidate is not x because of y or something

Regions/geography is a lot more clear cut in my opinion

I believe after Clearwater will work best, for continuity and timing. After Virginia, D.C. is her next intended destination.
