TIME FOR A RE-PETE?
What’s so great about fourth place?

If you are in South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg, quite a lot actually.

Readers no doubt have, observed Elizabeth Warren‘s steady wins against top rider Joe Biden in the past few weeks. It is now only 2.4 points behind Biden in our Democratic 2020 Power Ranking. As Biden continues to fight for improved control on his family to make money facilitated by Biden, the proximity to power, we expect his difficulties.

While the Democrats are not publicly agree with President trump, the facts of the Trump likely to charge to reinforce Biden strongest negative: he has been too long and too much of a swamp monster.

We know Biden Fans prepare to support the millions of to spend, the former Delaware senator in his third presidential quest, but it is hard to imagine that Biden could remain long on the second place.

Not to keep if electability is your cri de coeur, it is difficult for the voters, if they do not look so electable.

This is good news for Warren, no doubt. But you had better be afraid, that there are good news coming soon. As Biden is currently experiencing is not the top tab is all the Aviator sunglasses and waffle cone.

Warren has long enjoyed kid-glove treatment from the press, with relatively little control over, you have a very ambitious policy proposals It also has, in the meantime, a couple of mulligans on the biographical boo-boos. This will not be the last time she gets in front. The steady diet of opposition research to fill the reporters ‘ inboxes will see.

So you throw your eyes at the bottom of the list. You can skip over the arms of Bernie Sanders , who is fighting not only with his own health problems, but with the tragic loss of his daughter-in-law. The Vermont senator says he will back his campaign, and is already 10 points behind Warren and fall.

Buttigieg, though, was climbing. Maybe is the recipient of the unraveling of California, Sr., Kamala Harris‘ misbegotten campaign or maybe some of Biden skeptics defecting, Buttigieg is a man in motion.

Surely Sens. Cory Booker and Amy Klobuchar hope that you would see their boats lifted by the melting of Biden the iceberg, but Buttigieg is the best case to make.

His fundraising haul in the third quarter, says that he has the resources to go the distance, and his moderate-sounding appeal to the voters, good for him to pick-up the business-friendly democratic donors who have a fear of either a Warren defeat or victory would position.

Whether Buttigieg can benefit you to depend on the possibility of his ability to walk toe-to-toe with Warren. In the first Buttigieg cry, he was not able to translate, interest in hardware support. In a second go-around, he would have to play forever.

SANDERS BACK CAMPAIGN TO HEART SURGERY
WaPo: “[Bernie Sanders] went to a cardiologist Tuesday morning, and when he came back, he told reporters, ” We’re gonna change the nature of the campaign a bit.’ ‘Not likely to do four rallies of the day,” said Sanders, who had plan adopted an angry campaign, as many of his much younger opponent. Sanders, has committed to the release of his medical records, before the first primary votes, has but is not done yet, said on Tuesday that he would provide information in the appropriate time.” The former Vice-President Joe Biden and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) fellow septuagenarians, the Sanders at the top of most polls — have also committed to the sharing of their medical records.”

Daughter-in-law, 46, killed by a rare cancer – USA Today: The daughter-in-law of democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders died shortly after he was diagnosed with cancer. Rainè Riggs was 46. The Lee & Martin funeral home in Burgettstown, Pennsylvania, says Riggs died on Saturday, the day, and Sanders returned to Vermont, after suffering a heart attack. Her obituary said she was diagnosed with neuro-endocrine cancer. Riggs, a neuro-psychologist, married to Levi Sanders, who ran unsuccessfully for a New Hampshire congressional seat in 2018. Riggs’ obituary says, she met Levi Sanders , while the other two worked on emergency food, shelter, Vermont. In an obituary Riggs said, was the Director of behavioral medicine at the Dartmouth Medical School for several years, and she started the Palliative Care Department at the Dartmouth Medical Center. They also owned Riggs geriatric psychology in Windsor, Vermont. Riggs and Sanders had three children.”

Dianne Feinstein supports Biden, reported Philippe mathonnet Harris – Fox News: “sen Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., announced Tuesday they advocate, former Vice-President, Joe Biden, in the year 2020 Democratic presidential primary — the election of your former long-time Senate colleague on Kamala Harris, her fellow California democratic senator. Feinstein’s endorsement, the first major democratic confirmation of a Supreme legislature this campaign season, comes as Biden was losing ground in the polls in the Wake of the impeachment inquiry in President Trump and a number of high-profile slip-up, while on the stump. But the longtime California senator praised the former Vice President for his long tenure in Washington and his work on weapons possession. “I have closely with Vice-President Biden and I have seen first-Hand, its lawmakers said skills, its state of the art, and, above all, his moral steadfastness,’ Feinstein said in a statement.”

“I think it can be considered as a position justified by the history of mankind that she finds IN THE USUAL progress OF THINGS the NECESSITIES of THE NATION, IN EVERY STAGE of ITS EXISTENCE, at LEAST in the amount of ITS RESOURCES.” – Alexander Hamilton, Federalist No. 30

TIME OUT: ‘YESTERDAY’ CAME SUDDENLY
On this day in 1965, The Beatles’ “Yesterday” began the month-long time as the top single in the US, is the song, the Paul McCartney‘s masterpiece, began as a dream. The Telegraph [UK]: “As McCartney explained in 1980: “I woke up with a beautiful melody in my head. I thought, ‘This is great, I wonder, what is it?’ It was a piano next to me, right next to the bed by the window. I got out of bed, sat at the piano, G found, found F sharp minor 7.–, and leads you through then to B to E minor and finally back to E. It leads forward logically. I liked the melody a lot, but since I’d dreamed of, I couldn’t believe it, I would have written it. I thought, ‘no, I’ve never written like this before.’ But I had the melody most of the magical beings.’ McCartney lived in Wimpole Street, London, at the time, to the house of the family of Jane Asher, who he was Dating at the time.”

No nuance or apology — not a hint of it. Rotate the leader of the investigation (in this case, house-Intelligence-Chairman Adam Schiff) in a conservative media villain. Trump’s enemies condemn in the most incendiary and exaggerated language (treason, traitor, coup, etc.). In comparison to the Müller-examination, the Ukraine call appears to have more resonance with the General public.

When confronted with the accusation of a threat of a West Wing staff is that Trump has been neutralized to a large extent. Aide-de-camp were to the left guessing about who is coming and going, much less what they actually say about the allegations that Trump pressured Ukraine to feel dirt on his potential 2020 rival Joe Biden. In the two weeks since the whistleblower complaint was published, not eroding, the White house articulated a clear legal, policy, communication, strategy necessary to resist by impeachment and Trump hold the Republican support.”

FROM THE STANDS
“I guess Ellen DeGeneres‘ statement about her friendship with the former President George W. Bush. How have we reached this point where we can’t be friends, or at least polite, those who have a different point of view? … The father of Christian Rock, Larry Norman, once told a joke about a witness to the people, and the ‘religious’ terms, often used. In the history of the Christian frustrated at the end of a conversation, in which he was to be with a friend, because the friend does not understand the concepts of justification, sanctification, or stored. In frustration, he yells, ‘I’m trying to tell, the Good news!’ His friend asks, ” What is this?’ The Christian responds: ‘You go to hell!” His friend replied, “Well, what’s the bad news?’ The point of the narrative is to say that, if we hold firm belief, that’s fine, but we need to communicate in a loving and respectful way. Our actions speak louder than our words. If we are not mindful, we run the risk of the against the person, or worse still, lose the opportunity for dialogue, we’re looking for, with the other person. I believe that in matters of faith especially, that would be a bad thing. As always, I wish you and your family God’s rich blessings!” – Paul Schnier, Shoreham, NY

[Ed. Note: Amen, Mr. Schnier! This applies to politics, too. Persuasion leading to consensus leads to sustainable reforms. Division of labor leads to a government lurching from plurality, which leads to. Blessings to you and yours also.]

“I understand your point today about the legal (someone shoot on 5th Ave”) and political differences (‘posting TS documents to IG’) for the display of the Congress vested powers to accuse a sitting President. Hopefully the third time is a charm. What is with this [contributions and donations by foreign nationals.] I think this is what your colleague, judge [Andrew Napolitano] was on his argument in the last article, and TV shows. … The difference between this and the Miller/Russia was not the case, that borders on bribery in bribery, high crimes and misdemeanors.’ Müller’s case was weak and borders on emotion. This is Not a stronger case with a self-a crime admitted,? An independent voter perspective.” – Jai Suresh, Fremont, Calif.

[Ed. Note: I hear you, Mr. Suresh. But, no matter which side you take here, the question of the charge is still above the law. The question is political, or at best, moral. It is what the members of the house (and the components they represent) say it is. Efforts to specific criminal charges miss the point of the endeavor.]
