We paid as much attention to the second Debate, on Wednesday, as we did to the first, and “measured” everyone’s performance with our crude, but pragmatic, homemade gauge.
In comparing the two debates, we saw that Sanders and Warren stood well above their 18 counterparts, while Buttigieg rejoined the ranks of the other “good” candidates like Booker, Harris, Castro, Inslee and even DeBlasio. Sanders and Warren are energetic and passionate.
Because of his poor personal presentation, grumpy behavior and “socialist” branding, Bernie self-disqualifies, so that leaves us with Warren who stand the best chance to put the Donald back in its place.
There will be enough time for the Democratic Party to “re-tool” their message when Warren gets the nomination. She’ll get her pick of excellent Vice President and Secretary of State in the good, yet less brilliant group below her and Sanders.
