Joe vs Beto. I say no. To vote against one is to implicitly endorse the other; while there are things I like about each of them, I’m afraid neither one of them is a helpful presence in this race. Abstain.
Gabbard vs Delaney. I found out that Delaney’s a banker and a “moderate.” Here’s a lesson I need to keep reminding myself of: Don’t vote for someone you know nothing about just because you dislike or distrust another choice. (Though of course, I do like Tulsi Gabbard.) Tulsi.
Sanders vs Booker. The one with the populist movement over the unpopular corporate guy, obviously. The is not hard, people. Bernie.
Amy Klobuchar vs Jay Inslee. I had to research Inslee a little. We have not gotten good presidents from governor’s mansions, but Inslee was in Congress for six terms, and he’s kind of an environmentalist, even if he’s a “New Democrat.” I would much rather nominate a woman, but Inslee, weakly.
Buttigieg vs Yang. If I understand the rumors, both seem sort of rooted in Silicon Valley venture capital, and neither are prepared to really do the job. That said: Yang wants to give me money, Pete wants to bulldoze my house. Policy! Yang.
Bullock vs Hickenlooper. Oh, who cares? Abstain.
Harris vs Warren. Warren, Harris can be Veep or something.
Kirsten Gillibrand vs Julián Castro. Gillibrand.
(On those last two, I do think it should be a woman, ideally, and I do think Warren is the best leader for the party. I don’t want to talk bad about Harris or Castro, who might be good VP candidates.)
