    So Beto O'Rourke and Justin Trudeau are political bimbos? Along with being the more usual sort of male bimbo?

    He's only running as a Dem to get on the same stage as the Dems, which is honestly fine by me if that's what the rules are. He is literally the only one to make the connection about pre-Trump liberal centrism being an important enabling condition of Trump himself, and the only one who seems to remember that the current lineup of progressives were yesterday's homophobes, warmongers, authoritarians, and literal Republicans
    What people were in the past doesn't bother me in the least. In fact, were you not earlier a capitalist pig like myself? I may be wrong but I think that you became a socialist in the last 6 months or so. In fact, I don't trust people who have never had the introspection to make major changes in their life.

    I'm not running for President though, and my radicalization didn't miraculously coincide with announcing my candidacy. For every big policy mistake the United States has made, there were people at the time who were forward-thinking enough to realize they were mistakes. I think we should cherish those people, and favor them over the ones who only changed their tune when the zeitgeist started to move. And I'm definitely not a member of the first category by any stretch, but I sure as he'll want a President who is.

    MSNBC is reporting that Biden is about to announce and that he may have already chosen Stacy Abrams as his running mate.
