    Because she probably wouldn't have asked for forgiveness.

    It’s funny because my ex and I agreed on nothing but politics. My husband and I agree on everything but politics. But my ex married a Republican but even she didn’t vote for trump. We laugh that we each have our own Republicans)

    I thought last night’s debate was pretty pedestrian. Rich people lecturing less-rich people about the corrosive nature of money. Much of the talk made it sound like we are in the depths of an economic depression. Wishful thinking, I guess. A half dozen white people talking about the necessity for our politics to become less white, although I didn’t see any of them offer up their seat on the bus. I think I might consider Klobachar over Trump in November.

    How many more of these things before Iowa?

    Sanders was very strong hitting it hard on climate change, Warren did well. I like Steyer, he may be few people's top choice, but I wouldn't mind him as Prez. The rest did ok. I was asked who did least well, uh I don't know maybe Pete or Yang - really noone did that badly that I could recall, they all did ok (Klobuchar did well - but it's hard to sell you are the one who can win against Trump - which was her whole pitch - when you can't even poll much among Dems). But then I was reminded Biden was on stage. Oh. I forgot he was on stage entirely! I guess that's doing bad, when you can't even remember they are on on stage.

    Yang missed his big line on what to give people as a gift: should have been: $1000 a month ... for everyone on this stage

    Even when the question was unrelated to climate change.

    It was good to see the field whittled down to get a better idea of things. My ranking of favorites has changed some, but I pretty much decided that any of them could be a competent president. I did not feel that way about Hillary and pretty much held my nose while voting. Other than Biden, I thought the older candidates all seemed vital, current and fresh. Joe is at the bottom of my choices because he falls into the good old boy school. I also did not get the impression of strong commitment and sincerity on the climate crisis issues. The wealth tax that some propose is a wild card as are some of the give away programs, but I suspect there will come to be a middle ground reality and idealism with meet. In that respect, none are perfect.

    I'm over old throwbacks and has-beens--old thinkers in general. I'll vote for Biden only if I'm backed into a corner.

    I might vote Green or Libertarian if it were Biden vs Trump.
