A STAR IS BORN
I have been closely following Pete Buttegieg and the more I watch his interviews, follow his career, notice his articulation, thoughtfulness and overall how resonates with watchers, listeners from all political leanings, I think Pete Buttegieg is going to be a serious contender in 2020.
Not only will he run a brilliant, innovative campaign with his highly motivated millenials, raise strong funds but he will win in every single debate opportunity that he will get. He is certainly winning people over with every radio, TV and print interview everywhere. I watched Obama early on in 2004 and I want to say that Pete comes across a notch better.
What impresses me about Buttegieg the most though is how much he contrasts not only to Trump but also to the large democratic candidate field. He does not use the campaign cliches that I am so tired of such as ..."I want to bring people together and not divide them" or... I am a uniter, not a divider.".... W T F !!!
First I was a fan of Beto but now I am of Pete. Trump will have to be very very careful of being brutal in debates with Pete. That will be Trump's ultimate self destruction move but Pete will also raise everybody in the debate hall to their feet with a big and long applause. The country is already has a fatigue of Trump's arrogance, irrational talk and action, extremism, lying, law breaking, and super narcissist persona and behavior that Pete will prove to be a perfect weapon to cut Trump down to size.
Buttegieg has made it clear that he understands the audacity of running this young, as gay for the highest office in the land. I am convinced that his team has a good assessment of the obstacles and a plan of how to get there. He is all gold but unfortunately is the conservative nation like the U.S.A. ready for a gay president is the question. Ireland which is a more conservative nation already has achieved 2 admirable milestones with Leo Varadkar - openly gay and a son of an immigrant.
