Tonight’s the final debate before the Iowa Caucus.  The combatants are:

Joe Biden
Bernie Sanders
Pete Buttigieg
Elizabeth Warren
Amy Klobuchar
Tom Steyer

Spartacus dropped out and Andrew Yang didn’t make the threshold.
There’s your “diversity”...This is what the DNC has to work with to take on Trump. Bloomberg is still out there and he’s going to just try and buy the election (and take away your Coca-Cola).

I’m disappointed out left-leaning friends have offered very little commentary on these people. It leaves a lot of room for speculation with the most popular being that it’s easier to attack Trump than get behind and of these people.

I expect these people to start going after each other pretty hard because a poor showing in Iowa could mean the money will start running out.

After Iowa, the field will thin a little with a few hanging on a short time. The front runners will start going after each other harder when delegates are on the line.

Looks like Warren is going to go after Sanders. She alleging that during a private meeting between them, Sanders told Warren that he didn’t think a woman could win the presidency and she’s decided to weaponize that private conversations.  Bernie is of course denying it.  Warren knows she’s slipping and is now going girl-power since the insane 50 trillion entitlement is being laughed at by everyone.

This has been painful to watch.  They invoked to word “universal” more times than I could count.  Same old dog and pony show: Free Shit for everyone and Orange Man Bad.

Their were dull, no passion and not inspiring. 

Trump is going to eat these people up.

I had to work, so couldn’t watch, but have seen highlights this morning. I see zero chance for any of these candidates. Senate and House probably the bigger issue.

Even the super liberal crew on Morning Joe were talking about how bad the debate was.  They were essentially saying these people aren’t going to be tough enough to take on Trump’s attacks…and they are right.


Van Jones on CNN really hit them hard:
