Buttigieg: Biden supported the worst foreign policy decision in my lifetime


Seems Pete is trying to find a way to compensate for his own lack of experience on the national stage.

I am not sure this approach of denigrating "Washington experience" will work for him.

Which Democratic voters are potentially the most disloyal?


Soooo, Warren supporters are the MOST LOYAL Democrats.


Joe Biden Says He'd Defy Subpoena to Testify in Trump's Senate Trial

Joe Biden Says He’d Defy Subpoena to Testify in Trump’s Senate Trial

Returning to the campaign trail after Christmas, former Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. on Friday stood by his comments that he would not comply with a subpoena to testify at President Trump’s impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a meeting with the editorial board of The Des Moines Register, whose endorsement in the Iowa caucuses is coveted by presidential hopefuls, Mr. Biden argued that complying with a subpoena and testifying would essentially allow Mr. Trump to succeed in shifting attention onto Mr. Biden and away from the president’s own actions.

“The reason I wouldn’t is because it’s all designed to deal with Trump doing what he’s done his whole life: trying to take the focus off him,” Mr. Biden told the newspaper. “The issue is not what I did.”
“This is all about a diversion,” Mr. Biden added. “And we play his game all the time. He’s done it his whole career.”


Isn't Biden undercutting the 2nd Article of Impeachment against Trump, Obstruction of Congress for ignoring Congressional supoenas?


Just saw on CNN the hosts making this very point, why can Biden say he will ignore a supoena when Trump is being impeached in part for doing that himself?

This seems like an unforced error on Biden's part, handing the Republicans a gift of an excuse for not voting to remove Trump from office. Why did Joe even bring this up now?

Personal Prediction: Bloomberg will be our Democratic Nominee

Money talks. And right now the money has talked Bloomberg into a virtual 4th place tie with Pete Buttigieg according to The Economist's polling model:

Biden 26%
Sanders 17%
Warren 16%
Buttigieg 8%
Bloomberg 7%


RCP POLLS also shows Bloomberg moving up fast on Buttigieg:

Michael Bloomberg has committed to spending AT LEAST $100,000,000.00 of his own money in his presidential bid, some reports say he is prepared to spend up to a BILLION dollars!

His add blitz has already moved him into 5th place, and he is closing in on the 4th slot.

Let's face it, when all is said and done, his massive high dollar media blitz will ensure him the nomination.
As a Warren supporter, I find it very difficult to have to, in Jill Biden's words, "swallow" this reality, but face it... Bloomberg is inevitable.


Well, I will support the Democratic nominee, no matter who it is. Even a billionaire.

Sanders Outperforms Biden in Head to Head versus Trump

Bernie Sanders Outperforms Joe Biden in Head to Head Matchup with Donald Trump, New Poll Finds

In a recent survey by Ipsos/Reuters, slightly more respondents said they would vote for Senator Bernie Sanders than former Vice President Joe Biden in the 2020 election against President Donald Trump.

Though the difference is within the margin of error (3.4 percentage points) 39 percent of the 1,108 adults surveyed between December 18 and 19 preferred Sanders over Trump, compared to 37 percent who preferred Biden.

Biden has maintained a steady lead in national polls over other top candidates for several weeks, but primary voters have far from made up their minds. Recent surveys note growing indecision among Democratic voters and even declining favorability overall for candidates as the field has yet to coalesce around one or even two likely party nominees.

Though Sanders and Warren may be appealing to the same base of young, progressive voters, Sanders began to eclipse the Massachusetts senator after the fourth Democratic debate, when multiple candidates attacked Warren on how she would fund her health care plan.

Sanders' health care plan is no less ambitious, but recent surveys have determined the Vermont senator claims a plurality of support among Latino voters and young people between 18 and 29 years old, demographics likely fueling his late-stage surge to the top of the Democratic field.

In another measure of electability, however, the Sanders-Trump comparison compels more people to vote at the end of the day, according to the survey. Only 20 percent of respondents say they wouldn't vote if the election were held between Sanders and Trump. That's compared to 23 percent and 21 percent who said the same of Biden and Warren versus Trump, respectively.
