    Good quotes in there from Beto, sounding quite reasonable.

    I like this one about implementing a Medicare for all system without wholesale overnight disruption:

    And I think people might be surprised how many companies happily throw in on this and simply get rid of their employee health plans. I'd wager the migration to single-payer might actually be quite rapid (and more importantly, voluntary).

    Mariko just saw a photo of Bernie Sanders in my news feed. (I happen to be wearing my Hindsight is 2020 Bernie shirt, too.)

    Her comment: “Is he still alive?”

    :D

    I had a similar reaction just now.

    First presidential campaign I ever donated too, WAY back in 2008.

    I’m curious to see how big the Dem base, voter and donor, really is if the centrists are pushed aside.

    "Someone Else" is beating CO.

    I think I approve of Warren being at the top of the list, not that I'm fully aware of her policies, but at least she's not older than dirt.

    Debatable. IIRC she just turned 70. That said, I'm not a believer that age itself is a disqualifier. Pretty sure she is still younger than trump, Bernie, or Biden

    I would be equally happy with Warren or Bernie.

    While I do genuinely admire Warren, her nomination would only ensure another win for Herr Twitler. She has an uncanny ability to galvanize conservative women against her.

    Correct, just a few days ago, didn't realize she was now 70's but the extra ~7 years the others have on her is noticeable.

    :stupid:

    I like Warren because she is wonky and nuanced, which is why she makes a horrible candidate in a country determined to celebrate ignorance. Last weekend Maher called her a "Three syllable candidate in a one syllable country". I think that's pretty accurate.
