Man. In just 1 month or so's time Pete Buttigieg has boomed in popularity to be challenging the two very old and tired "front runners" for the Democrat nomination. With this kind of momentum, the young and energetic Mayor Pete poised to move ahead of both of the 80 year olds. Two old guys good at supporting war, but never putting on the uniform to fight in them.

That's amazing when you consider that "beh toe", Harris, Pocahontas and Spartacus are all better known career establishment politicians.

Pete Buttigieg has gone from totally unknown to polling third in Iowa and New Hampshire

Another old guy good at supporting war, but never putting on the uniform to fight in them: Trump. Or his father (overbilled government for housing built for military during WWII) or his grandfather (tried to re-immigrate to Germany but was denied for being considered a draft-dodger). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frederick_Trump Thanks Bavaria.

There aren't any 80 year olds running. 3 in their 70s - including Trump. Trump is in the worst shape of the 3 of them. The other 2 are mentally and physically in much better shape than Trump.

A Democrat is still a Left-leaning Democrat; he has displayed no understanding of the necessity pf less government regulation, all-privatized education, a locally-administered and tightly-policed "safety net", a shrinking public sector, and lower taxes.

Kissing his partner like he did.. what’s up with that? I don’t want to see ANY politician ( or anybody else for that matter) using PDA’s.
What was the point of that? Pandering to the LGBT community?

Or being real in the moment and not fake. Or wanting to appear real and not afraid.

Bernie & Biden will both turn 80 in office should they be elected.

I understand that...and have no issue with it. I’ve just never seen another politician engage in a PDA during a rally or any other time to be honest. Why? Isn’t people knowing that they’re married enough?
When I used to try and wear a really short skirt.. my mom would say... people know you’re a girl, you don’t have to prove it.
