|Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Democratic presidential candidate|
I predict the May Pete Buttigieg will be the next Democratic presidential candidate.
I also predict that Mayor Pete will be the next president.
Now of course my second statement is perhaps more wishful thinking that what is actually going to happen but I can dream can't I?
Just imagine a fresh new face as president of the United States?
Joe Biden? Even though I am a resident of Uncle Joe's home state of Delaware and was born in the same state, Pennsylvania, a Biden, I cannot support him. Why? Because he's too old. Yes, he's as old as I am. A more important reason is that he is . . . . . boring. He just doesn't excite. Sure, maybe he is the candidate that has the best chance of defeating Trump for the presidency, assuming Trump isn't impeached and removed from the presidency before next year which, remote as the possibility seems, could happen if the Senate Republicans decide to do the right thing by the country and obey their Constitutional oath of office rather than their own political interests.
Elizabeth Warren? I like her and think she would make a great president but there is still a load of misogyny in this country. Other countries can elect a woman president but not our country. Remember, there is a hard core forty percent who will support Trump no matter what even if he does shoot someone in broad daylight on Fifth Avenue (they would blame Obama or Hillary).
The other Democratic presidential candidates (Harris, Castro, Klobuchar, Steyer (who?), Bennett, Yang and Corey Booker (those eyes!), it's not working folks. Save your money and withdraw like Beto O'Rourke did today.
I've heard rumors that Hillary is considering a run. Oh please!
I can see it now, Mayor Pete at a G-7 summit with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and French president Emmanuel Macron. What a refreshing change from that corrupt orange faced criminal that now occupies the office of the president of the United States.
One can hope.
