A "disaster"?  Perhaps.  But, as we know already, Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren were looking ahead of NH.  So, the results aren't entirely unexpected.

 

I know Biden is hoping black people save him, but it looks like Bloomberg is going to screw him up there.  I don't know what can save Warren at this point.

Not necessarily.  We haven't exactly forgotten about stop-and-frisk.

 

I'm learning very quickly to expect the unexpected, so I'm not ready to count out Elizabeth Warren just yet.  But, yeah, she is having a rough time of it.  Perhaps, like with Biden, her chances will improve once the primary season moves out into the more racially and ethnically diverse parts of this country.

Saint Bernie is doing nowhere near as well as he should have. And where the hell are all those new voters who were supposed to swarm the polls for their dear leader??? 

 

I won't say it yet because they could both crash out now that we're heading to places that aren't whites only, where Biden may have more of a chance to recover, but if he doesn't, I wish Pete would drop out, endorse Amy, with the offer that he would have a high profile role in her administration (not VP). They are bleeding each other out and helping someone who is showing incredible weakness limp through.

At the VERY least, I'm hoping Biden will recover in other states and blow Pete and maybe Bernie out of the water.

As a victim of Stop and Frisk, I've moved passed it despite me not liking the policy, he admitted the policy was wrong, I'm good!

 

I'm good as well, but that's because I've learned that no candidate will ever have a clean record.

Lawd...Biden is one awful speaker.

Oh Amy you haven't beaten Bernie nor Mayor Pete. How in the hell are you going to beat Trump. Silly Amy....

 

I believe most Bernie candidates would have an easier time winning the general than the primary.

It ticks me off that a man who's only experience is being mayor of a small city (and a poor one at that) is able to be a top contender for president.  Lord knows if he were a woman he wouldn't be.

I think Pete Buttigieg's supporters are more enamored with the idea of making history than anything else.

 

I think there is also a certain vote for the idea of a calm, sensible person. It's interesting that he got a fair amount of Warren voters in NH, as she is often seen as a teacher type.

I've always kind of thought that if he were hetero he would have been out the race by now.  Vox and Salon would have crucified him by now.
