My pick continues to be Senator Klobuchar. My politics are with Senator Warren, but I'm driving in the center lane this election because repudiating Trump is more important than anything else.

I love Senator Warren. But she's made two arguments that will be general election albatrosses that will sink the Democrats.

1. You cannot successfully tell the American people you're going to take away their private insurance and give them something better. No one with any fucking sense is going to believe that. The transition to universal healthcare requires a proving period.

2. You will not win a general election telling the American people you're going to decriminalize illegal border crossings. The argument this is the only/best way to counteract Trump border policies is super stupid.

I want to win, so in the center lane I drive. Vice President Biden is the mack truck currently controlling that lane, but I think that mack truck has bad wheels, and the signs are showing. My hope, wish, prediction is that Senator Klobuchar will fill that lane and take the nomination.

Waaaaaayyyyyyyy out on a limb, but I'm out here y'all.

I'd really like to Sen. Kamala Harris win the Dem nomination, Biden as you said is the dominate front runner but Harris has started to pivot a little more center and I think she would be able to reform that Obama voter coalition and bring in suburban/independent voters that are with Biden atm as well

I would not rule out a Biden/Harris Dem ticket either
would appeal to progressives and centrists alike
