Who do you support?
I'm not really a big fan of any of the leading Dems. I'd vote for any one of them before Trump but I'm not feeling the enthusiasm. I think Biden would beat him, otherwise it starts to get shaky fast - and even Biden could easily lose, he himself is sounding very shaky. I do feel positive about Warren, Biden, but not enthusiastic.
Kamala Harris is kind of a disappointing candidate for me, I wanted to support her but she hasn't done well and from what I've caught of it I don't like her campaign much. I think she has a kind of natural 'gravitas' that she isn't utilizing well. Also a potentially fantastic speaker... a lot of talent that isn't being used right.
Sherrod Brown is someone I would have liked to have seen run, maybe I'd like him? And I think he would have beaten Trump. I would have liked Andrew Cuomo to run too, it sure would have been entertaining.
But really I'm not enthusiastic about any of these people. I was for Bill Clinton, and Obama. And Hillary. I have a framed picture of Obama up on the wall at the place where I work, in the Oval Office talking on the phone during (I think) his first week in office.
I could be wrong, but Buttigieg seems a bit too calculated and contrived to me. I feel like I have no sense of who he is when I hear him speak. He could be very genuine and I just haven't heard him enough, but at this point I really have no read on him.
Are there any US politicians that you support besides Trump? It seems that you respect Warren?
