I had never heard of him but saw an interview with him this morning. The article isn't particularly flattering, but it is interesting.

Massachusetts?


He'd never survive the Democrat primary in most of the USA. They'll eat him alive in the South.

And he might as well be Elizabeth Warren; because his votes on immigration mirror her votes. This is just another puppet for the leadership!

I like him!



Heard of him before but haven't been paying much attention to potential candidates just waiting on the next election cycle.



I do think he is in the direction he Dems need and those who have commented thus far are not Democrats and so you cannot speak on their leans. I'm also not a Democrat but don't have some sort of red/negative view of them and do feel that this guy is representative of a lot of what is going on in the Democratic party today.


ETA: I especially like that he is a veteran. IMO it is a good idea for a potential and actual president to have some military experience due to him/her not being as apt to send our country's soldiers into harm's way for an unnecessary reason without intimately knowing the risks.

I like the fact that he's young and a veteran and appears to speak his mind.

That's a long article with virtually zero on his policy positions.

A long article to note little more than he was in the military.

OK, that's fine but certainly not enough to support him. The article is greatly lacking in what he stands for.

Seth Moulton is a Decent candidate , but thats about it.


The article is based on the premise that Moulton carried his district because he is a moderate and the Current(at the time) dem was more liberal.

Thats a lie in and of itself. Tierney had held the District since 1997 and routinely gotten around 70% of the vote.

Being liberal wasnt the problem,Being "liberal" was as the Republican ran to the left of him. All Seth Moulton did was publicly state his opinion which lined up directly with Tierney.

Its how corporate media likes it. Dont focus on the issues. Dont focus on who their big donors are. Focus on personality, life stories, anything other than what matters.

The more socialists running, the better. They'd lose handily.
