I believe 90+ percent of the people in here want the Democrat, If we have to nominate a moderate, so be it. Go Joe, but my heart says a bunch of them will beat him.

Even more people thought that it was a fact that a dumpster fire like Trump could never win. You may be right that Pete won't win. But I wouldn't be surprised if you were wrong. Facts ain't facts until they happen."Absolutely, Barack Obama was such a lovely surprise, even when he was in Illinois and wasn't interested in the job. He won for many reasons, and we had eight incredible years with him. And I agree, no one thought Trump would win, which is why we fell asleep at the wheel in November 2016 and didn't bother voting. The swing states, which were so damn important, had such a low voter turn out. In my opinion, it's because both were very unlikeable (I love Hillary deeply but she is cold), but what I didn't think of was the incredible turnout by racist, sexist, and radical Republicans. Hate crimes went up overnight when he was elected. We failed and it gave us years of anxiety, terror, anger, and completely divided country. I think everyone has been deeply affected negatively by this monster, and we want him OUT. That is the only objective for next year. I know that is a low bar, but we need the person who can beat this jerk off. We need a candidate who excites voters enough to go out and vote, especially young people and POC. It's sad that it's come to that, but that is what we need. I am thinking of the good of the party. I like Pete a lot, he is calm, incredibly intelligent, and has some excellent plans. But, I think he's too green and I don't want this to be true, of course, but a lot of people simply won't vote for a gay man to be POTUS.I guess it's Joe, for now, which is fine. I have no idea who Obama will endorse, but it will go a long way with black folks. I just want Trump out, like everyone here I believe, and we need a moderate candidate with name recognition to do so.
Why is Michael Bloomberg in the race??? Last night's debate was nearly perfect. Amy Klobuchar captured my heart, mind, and credit card. But, Iowa is do or die for her.
As was evident by last night's debate, if Joe Biden just stays the course, the Democratic Presidential nod will be his. Slow and steady.
Amy caught your credit card and that's good, she'd beat him like a drum.
I'm really starting to favor a Biden-Klobuchar 2020 ticket.
Tonight is the final Democratic Debate before the Iowa Caucuses on February 3. The lineup on stage, left to right, is (I think): Steyer, Warren, Biden, Sanders, Buttigieg, Klobuchar.
Since even before he announced his candidacy, I have believed that Joe Biden offers our country the best opportunity to return to normalcy, and decency and basic goodness. Tonight's debate reaffirms my opinion.
What can we expect from a Biden presidency in terms of drone murders, imprisonment for life without trial, NSA spying on Americans, persecuting whistleblowers, and other various evil deeds in the name of national security? The Obama administration was absolutely awful on these things; has Biden given any assurances that he’d put a stop to them?
