Bernie would never in a million years choose Beto and will more than likely choose a woman as his running mate- my guess would be Nina Turner.
If he's gonna go with a black woman for a running mate why doesn't he go all out and just pick Stacey Abrams? I hear she's available now that she's no longer running for governor of GA...

Nina Turner.
She sounds familiar. Does she have an abusive husband named Mike?
Shes a former state senator and I'm sure shes never heard that joke.

What's the senate got to do, got to do with it?

He’s far better spoken and at least seemingly more genuine than anyone else running. He’s pretty good about not sucking dicks while speaking publicly, which is all you can ask, really. Haven’t heard any “grab ‘em by the willy” comments, although that would be more applicable to those vs pussies.
Looking forward to his assent. Couldn’t care less about his sexual proclivities. What a stupid fucking thing to care about.

I’ll go ahead and presume that you didn’t read the actual report linked in the article you’re selectively quoting, did you?
“Certain situations” include trannies in restrooms and gays in places of worship. Thanks for pointing out that Republicans and Bible Thumpers don’t like fags. We’re all shocked. Good thing Republicans are dying out.

“However, 79% of non-LGBTQ U.S. adults still agreed with the statement ‘I support equal rights for the LGBT community.”

Pete’s not even running yet and he’s polling highly.

Pete Buttigieg is a young guy. I figure he has a bright future. Here's my concern though: Is his future RIGHT NOW, in an upcoming election where it is the utmost goal to oust the most toxic fuckwad on the planet?

As with Hillary Clinton's gender in 2016 and how much we don't really know whether the fact that she was a woman tipped the scales (if only by the narrow deciding margin) in Trump's favor, the question we need to ask for THIS election is... do we really want to chance it that this country might not be as evolved as we want to give ourselves credit for?

It's been shown over and over again that online perception of issues like LGBTQ acceptance differs greatly from real world perception. There are still a lot of ass backward people out there who don't mind one little bit inflicting their ass backwardness upon all of us via their voting choices.

In the end what we will need to look at is not how a frontrunner nominee polls against other challengers, but how he polls against the incumbent. If we ignore that, we're setting ourselves up. On November 4th, 2020, the reckoning day after, nobody's going to care about this guy being gay or whether Biden should be hung from the highest tree for being oddly affectionate. They're going to care whether we have another four years of this fucking hell to live through.

Here's a question: Who thinks Ruth Bader Ginsberg will live till 2024? If you do, you should probably avoid gambling because you don't understand playing the odds. Guess who is circling like a buzzard over her and salivating at the chance to appoint a THIRD blue-blooded right winger to the supreme court during his tenure? Anybody here understand what that will do to the lives of our kids?

There is a LOT riding on this.

You can’t connect faith to science and reason. Faith is the proud denial of science and reason in order to preserve faith. It proudly exists without either.

“I’m even less enthused about Bernie going further.” You’re a retarded kitten chasing any laser pointer the idiots on the Left will wave around for you. Distracted by shiny objects instead of any legacy or platform.
“I want a woman!” “I want a cool, young Irish dude!” “I want a gay Bible thumper!” OMG, you’re like, so progressive. Couldn’t give a fuck less about policy or credibility, could you? No wonder the retard Left can’t get their fucking shit together. People like you are in it.
Lol your guy is Donald fucking Trump.

Mic. Drop.
Huh?
I think MS mistakenly took your rant against the idiotic movements currently happening in the Democratic party as being pro-Trump.. Which is wasn't, it pretty much painted what a lot of the radical Trump haters mentality in this..

Like DITD pointed out with the voters in 2016, 2020 is going to rely heavily on if the 47% who chose not to vote last election comes out and who they cast their vote for.. There are Republicans who despise Trump, would rather see another candidate from the right take the position away, then you have the drooling tards who believe Bonespurs is some sort of patriotic genius worthy of being the king of 'Murica for life who would dig up dead relatives to vote for him..

The left is running around trying to find someone as a worthy opponent for the White House and sadly Bernie keeps getting tagged by Faux News and the Trumptards with the "socialist!" moniker who wants to take all their welfare money and then the rest who have either announced or are debating on whether to run aren't impressive to many with their ideals. Not enough to win the election at least...

Personally I'd love to see Biden run with Obama as VP just to watch the fireworks from both sides...

You should work on his campaign and come up with slogans for him. You're really good at it.

Haven't kept much up on this guy, but did enjoy the snippet of his answer to the question of why the mayor of a mid sized city is ready to be president..

"I've got more years of experience in government than Trump, more years of executive experience than Vice President Mike Pence and more military experience than the two put together."

I love that you can't box him into any one category. Sure, people complain that he's just another white male, and okay, that may be true, but he's also a gay man and a military veteran. And if elected he would be the youngest POTUS ever. These are unique and compelling factors that speak to America's changing identities.

People complaining that he's getting too much media coverage over the other candidates can at least take some comfort that the debates will let everyone prove their ability to stand out. Buttigieg will still have to outperform his fellow contenders which, as sharp and deliberate as he seems to be, is not a foregone conclusion. But his campaign is definitely one to be taken seriously now. In fact his husband said that he wrote the bulk of his announcement speech this morning, hours before he gave it. That's pretty impressive.

The reality is that while he claims that he is running for President. He is being realistic with an eye on becoming Govenor of Indiana.

I agree with an earlier post...this guy has a bright future, but he’s saavy enough to know thats a big jump from Mayor to President.

But is it less likely than from uncouth reality TV star to President?

You sound like one of those Dems that are enamored by shiny objects..

First of all the right wing evangelicals will never back a gay man and they and Faux News will use his sexual leaning against him at every turn.. IT'S IN THE BIBLE!!1!!!11

Oh they're fine with backing a three time adulterer, who is vulgar, an admitted draft dodger who has a penchant for porn actresses, hush money payments to them, spanking, not an ounce of Christian values to his name and prefers lying and spewing childish insults to POWS and any political adversary every other time he opens his trap, but a gay man? No way..

Why not wait until he's a little more open with his immigration, employment, structure, foreign policies and economic plans before handing him the reigns to the country? The shiny objects shit got us into the mess we're in now..

Apparently Petes big on evasion when it comes to policy positions. He also opted to work for Mckinsey consultants after college. So questionable morals there, just like Gillibrand and Harris' and their past histories.
