8. Had been sick over the weekend

 

Even canceled some fundraisers in FL because of it.

Dunno, I'm just speculating as to why he wasn't on the stage tonight.

16. He was. He said that Pete reminded him of his son Beau

 

Which for Joe is the highest possible praise.so it was a kind of mutual endorsement.Pete endorsed Joe, but Joe also endorsed Pete. I found it a touching moment.

3. He gave a speech endorsing Biden in some small venue....

 

... somewhere I heard it was a restaurant. Biden mentioned Pete having "endorsed me earlier."

Very strange. Possibly a Klobuchar/Buttigieg conflict?

12. could be, they do not like each other much, I am pretty sure of

 

Her falsely saying Pete would rather turn off the TV and watch cartoons (which was the exact opposite of what he said, and he was talking about potential voters, NOT himself) was a really tension point and made me drop her down my list, along with a few other things that are in the past now.

13. Honestly

 

those are all pretty small things. Pete got a full day of of press for his dropping out, and was praised by Biden. They may well be meeting off camera. I thin it's more of just letting her have her moment

11. Maybe they thought if they gave Klobuchar the spotlight, it would help...

 

... Biden in Minnesota.

15. Mayor Pete Spoke near the end of..

 

Chris Matthew's "Hardball" show (which runs from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM EST) on MSNBC, right before Chris Hayes' "All In Show" (which runs from 8:00 PM to 9:00 PM EST). Mayor Pete was with Joe Biden at some chicken restaurant when they spoke, and this endorsement happened before the big rally later that night where Amy Klobuchar spoke.

Things were weird on "Hardball" because apparently Chris Matthews was force retired tonight. He spoke just until the first commercial break, saying that he had spoken with upper management and they had spoken about going younger. When the commercial break was over, we had Steve Kornacki doing the rest of the show. My guess is, that things like Chris Matthews going off on Bernie Sanders kind of pushed things to the brink.
