If you missed it....

Granting that there are no self-made billionaires (or millionaires)….their employees were mentioned, the February 19, 2020 Nevada political debate had a lineup of a billionaire on the left side for whom the other Democrat candidates had each sharpened their knives.

The billionaire on the left, coupled with a young chap second from the right, meant that the would-be nominee field had two mayors as candidates for their party's nomination, along with two senators representing the women of their party, one senator from northern New England (who at last count did not represent any of the men of his party), and a former vice president representing the most recent Democrat who had actually occupied the White House.

The young chap on the right seemed most dedicated to eliminating the competition from the woman senator to his left. The other woman senator seemed determined to protect her colleague, if for nothing else than to have company in the powder room. The billionaire seemed determined to be rid of them all, and the other two white haired males seemed determined to lead the lineup, while arguing over which of them should actually lead.

The most prominent topic seemed to be who had the biggest, healthiest heart for the struggle, with four stents being mentioned, and every candidate's medical records and tax returns being jousted.

Next most prominent was which candidate could actually find the funds, other than the billionaire, to pay for the grand proposals they promised to implement were they to actually be nominated and elected.

The only topic they could all agree upon was their determination to defeat the re-election of the current president. After all, if one of the bunch of them couldn't, then no one of them would succeed no matter how hard they might try and how much they might spend trying.

Having watched the debate from start to finish, I found the senator from Massachusetts the most sincere and determined, perhaps because she actually was.

      I suspect that Bloomberg and Biden will do poorly in the Nevada primary voting. Sanders and Warren will do well, if my guess is correct. Mayor Pete will be battling Klobuchar for 4th place, with Biden and Bloomberg nipping at their heals, or vice versa. Monday we should know how they rank.

      I didn't watch it either because I forgot about it. I had intended to only because I wanted to hear what Bloomberg had to say, if anything. I think a lot of Democrats are not interested in watching him buy the presidency.

      If it is a reflection on the debaters' success, it should be noted that Sanders and Warren each received new donations to their campaigns in the seven figures range following the Nevada debate.

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Well, you're not one to name names, Demas.... that's for sure! I went to bed early and did not watch the debates. My son watched some of it. He told me the "senator from Mass." raised her hand quite a lot. Overall, he thought the "Party" seemed in disarray.

      From clips I watched today, Bloomberg failed to defend himself and Warren pointed her finger at everyone. I do not see 'sincerity' as her strong point (at all), but the American people will decide.

      In any event, Bloomberg has enough money to influence the race for whichever Democrat wins the nomination....but in the end, I believe his billions will fall short.

      Thanks. Did not watch it though my brother and eldest daughter were there. Interesting lineup. By other reports it sounded just down right nasty. Yuk.
