LG: You knocked it over
LB: No, it’s because we need a plan
LG: [skeptically]: And you have a plan?
LB: I have lots of plans!

Sorry, repeating WE WILL BREAK ALL THE THINGS is not a plan. Not a plan that’s liable to succeed, anyways…
New HuffPost/YouGov poll on the second debates: Elizabeth Warren had another very good night. https://t.co/uKNroKIBt9
(Now the question is: will that help her to strengthen her standing in the primary, either temporarily or in the long term?) pic.twitter.com/YvyGLy2ADu

Two nuggets jump out at me in the new Q poll on 2020 Democrats:
• Warren has lapped Sanders with “very liberal” voters — she gets 40% to Bernie’s 20%
• Harris is at 1% with black voters ?? https://t.co/DodRyOpKI3

I’ll vote for the eventual nominee, but this is why I’m hoping that will be either Warren or Harris.
I’d be fine voting for Klobuchar or Gillibrand, too, but right now it doesn’t seem like their chances are good. (And of course it would gravely affect my blood pressure to vote for Gabbard or Williamson, but they’re not candidates, they’re spoilers promoted by foreign powers and useful idiots.)
Side issue: Maybe Beto O’Rorke can be Warren’s VP candidate / ‘anger translator‘?
I think a lot of people have been waiting to see a candidate as angry as Beto is right now.

This is a good point that only white male candidates like Beto have the ability to display anger and remain viable candidate. This is not a criticism of Beto. https://t.co/GuHfdWKb7I
