    This whole thread is kind of played out, don't you think, now that Buttigieg is out of the race.

    Pretty much two candidates left.

    Hello darkness, my old friend
    Warren is technically still in the race. She's apparently taking a day to assess whether to stay in the race. As much as I like her as a candidate, she really can't claim much relevance in this election cycle after coming in third in her own state. At this point, she'd be better off wielding her influence as a senator.

    Agreed. Or potentially being part of the cabinet for Biden.

    One of Hillarys' biggest mistakes was her choice for VP. She should done everything to get Bernie as her VP. Kaine was about as exciting as a sneeze by a corpse.

    In retrospect, yes. Probably at the time she probably thought that she had the election in the bag, so she was free to choose someone she thought she wanted to work with, rather than the optimal electoral choice.

    I don't know that Bernie would have been the best choice, but Kaine was zero help.

    Lanny, hearing that he
    She would have never selected anyone that was a threat to her or she couldn't scream & cuss or simply push aside. Kaine fit her that bill!

    I don't think you know that, and it doesn't sound plausible to me. You are claiming she was more interested in bullying a VP candidate than she was in being President. Not very likely.

    I can think of one time Bill was "Fitted" and he didn't know about it. At least he claims it never happened anyway?

    Pete getting out of the race and endorsing Biden might just prove to be his method of beating Trump.

    What's to assess? Doesn't a third place finish in her home state tell her anything?
