    just watched Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar on with MNSBC's Rachel Maddow - who seems to be a big fan.

    I've mentioned her here before, and she was solid. She got a little bit of a break in that two conflicting storylines have come out in the past few days since she announced.

    One is that she is "Minnesota Nice," so some of her constituents are saying she can't survive the cruel world of Presidential politics.
    The other is that she grinds up aides and spits them out, even allegedly tossing an item or two across a room or berating them.

    well, that works out great - pick your concern about her, and the flip side helps even the score.

    She and Harris seem to have the best very early footing so far.

    Still, don't know enough about her, but I've made a point to watch her speak a few times now--she seems genuine and likeable.

    Klobuchar is pretty well liked here in Minnesota. Many conservative voters like her. She is a moderate, and IMO, that's the road Democrats need to take to beat Trump. If they bring out someone seen as too progressive/liberal, I think that is a losing proposition.

    As someone who doesn't usually vote for the major parties. Klobuchar will get my vote. not like she won't carry MN anyway, but she is someone from a major party I can get behind.

    i have epiphanies like that all the time. for example i was watching a basketball game today and realized pom poms are like a pair of tits. there's 2 of them. they're round. they shake. women play with them. thus instead of having two, cheerleaders have four boobs.

    I am a liberal Democrat but would rather have a moderate win than a more left candidate lose
    so
    If you don't mind - Who have you voted for in the past presidential elections? Trying to see who would sway your vote.

    I have voted Libertarian Party the past four elections.

    2016 - I would never vote for either Trump or Clinton. If Kasich had been nominated I would have voted major party in 2016.

    I voted for Bush the first time, and I voted for Bill Clinton twice.

    To give you some other perspective. I've voted for Klobuchar numerous times for Senate. I voted for Jesse Ventura for Governor years ago.

    Democrats would easily win the 2020 Presidential Election with a moderate. They'll be in a battle if the go too far left.

    Just for clarity sake - ITC and I have never discussed who we "should" or "do" vote for.
    It is wrong and ultimately self-defeating for a nation of immigrants to permit the kind of abuse of our immigration laws we have seen in recent years and we must stop it.

    I think it's less about how liberal they go and more about whether their candidate has the charisma and political skill to outshine Trump and engage the voters. Obviously to some degree experience and policy positions matter, too, but if the Democrats lose to Trump, it's not going to be in those categories.
