    I would vote for Weld over Biden.

    Only in the negative sense.

    What I hear is the dems refused to use more current polls, instead using older ones where Yang doesn’t qualify.

    I don’t really like not trust either party anymore.

    There is no reason to trust them. Impeachment trials are now, that means the Senators can't campaign. It's being tilted in Bidens favor, by design or not. They are throwing the election, quite probably to Trump.

    I don't care about the impeachment I care about getting someone better in there as soon as possible (yea realistically that's Jan).
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I see Bernie raised four million dollars in the days since the he-said/she-said contretemps.

    Given that the two major progressive wing candidates will be stuck in the impeachment rituals for some unspecified length of time, does that give the moderates a great advantage in fundraising and campaigning? I understand the hearings will be mainly in the afternoon, so I suppose they could still get to the hustings if they’re willing to burn a lot of jet fuel. Or try to recruit some proxies.

    Interesting about the fund-raising.

    Regarding the impeachment impact on the senators, I was saying to DH, somewhat facetiously, that the DNC/Pelosi probably submitted the articles of impeachment at this particular time to take the two progressives off the Iowa campaign trail and give the advantage to Biden and Buttegieg.

    Bernie held his own while people piled up on Buttigieg last night. The best line was when Klobuchar pointed out while the Senators were dealing with impeachment he was complaining about it and said he'd rather be watching cartoons.

    Steyer is going for the minority vote, advocating reparations and attacking Biden who lived up to Trump's nickname for him Sleepy Joe. Buttigieg would not attack Joe or Hunter.

    Warren stuck to message and Yang did too but he didn't get a lot of time to speak.
