I'm an Amy supporter, and will remain so.

However, she was not in the same league as Elizabeth Warren tonight. Warren was on point. I thought Bernie reverted to ranting too much also.

One potential positive to a Bloomberg candidacy is

donations. I've got a max donation sitting here waiting for our nominee (while making smaller contributions during the primaries). And no, I'm not wealthy but my wife and i have decided we're going to stretch financially to do whatever we can to defeat that rotten bastard in the white house. If Bloomberg is the nominee, I'll likely divide that contribution among several Senate candidates, and i imagine the same would be true of all democratic donors, large and small, nationwide. Think of the dollars available to the DNC, DCCC, DSCC, and individual candidates!
Let me also say that i hate writing that paragraph, but we must accept for now that that's the world we live in. And i don't support the mayor now, but would in a general election of course. Just an interesting thought.

Amy won the debate.

Hands down. Not close. Wish she could get more traction.

I'm prepared to go all-out for any nominee,

from Sanders to Bloomberg and all points in between. This man must never be allowed to return to the people's white house. It's an atrocity on a scale I believe even worse than any of us could have imagined. I'll be maxing out to whomever our candidate is, unless it's Bloomberg in which case I'll be sending money to several Senate candidates. I hope most agree with me. That's all, had to get that out after that shit show in the east room today.

I just sent money to 4 people.

Sara gideon, mark Kelly, Theresa Greenfield and John Hickenlooper. I'll be sending some into north Carolina as well once that primary is decided. These 4 represent excellent pickup chances, and while tossing trump from office would provide me great joy, putting the mcturtle prick back in the minority would be just as sweet.

Watching the CBS special on separated migrant children.

Fucking trump. He should be thrown from office for that alone. The pure evil it requires to DESIGN a policy of family separation is beyond what people can even comprehend, I think. He and that vapid fucking succubus Nielsen should fry for the distress they've inflicted on those children.

We must defend our party and its representatives.

They've done what the constitution required them to do. The onslaught will be vicious. But we're in the right, and ultimately I believe the majority of the country will be with us.

I believe it's a 3- candidate race.

Unless and until some seismic shift can change the dynamic, our candidate is likely to be Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders. Of those 3, Warren has the best and most well-articulated plans on ag/ rural issues, so I've switched my support to her. If Biden is the nominee i think that's great as well, the country and our party would be in excellent hands with Joe pop at the wheel. Bernie doesn't really do it for me, but I'd gladly vote for him in a general too. My candidate from the beginning has been Harris, but i think she botched her handling of health care. I'd love to see her on the ticket, but I'm on team Elizabeth!

The biggest misfortune tonight, IMO,

is that John Hickenlooper, Marianne Williamson, Andrew Yang, and Eric Swalwell were on the stage and Steve Bullock wasn't. He won't be the nominee, either, but would/ will add more than any of those folks to a dem debate.

On healthcare, I wonder if the MFA-ACA improvement

Debate will become more nuanced as the field gets winnowed down? It's so hard to break through right now, due to limited time at the mic, that candidates have to distill their views down to a pretty basic "support or oppose" position on MFA. I am a proponent of single payer, always have been, but I feel like we will need to have an intervening step between our current situation and getting where we need to be. Medicare as the public option, letting wage earners buy in for their dependents when it makes sense, giving a good public option to entrepreneurs, farmers, small business owners, etc. I just think folks with good insurance through work will, at a minimum, need to see a public system function for awhile, rather than just forcing them in on day 1.
