Obama and Clinton’s bundlers are betting on these 3 candidates
Politico, Jul 18, 2019

The biggest fundraisers in the Democratic Party have identified early favorites as the 2020 candidates jockey for resources.

Big-money Democratic donors have jumped off the sidelines of the presidential race, and three candidates are the clear winners of their support: Joe Biden, Pete Buttigieg and Kamala Harris.

Each of those three candidates received more than 220 donations from top fundraisers who helped raise at least $100,000 — and sometimes many multiples more — for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign or at least $50,000 for Barack Obama in 2012, according to a POLITICO analysis of Federal Election Commission data. Members of this group of nearly 2,000 bundlers have tapped their personal networks in the past to collectively raise tens of millions of dollars for Democratic campaigns.

Wonderful.  Every time now I read about Buttigieg, I have to laugh as it is pronounced "Butt-edge-edge".  Here I thought it was pronounced But - gig. Thank you Mr. President.   :rolling:
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Apparently, these three are the best of the crop.   :smokin:

@Right_in_Virginia

That's only reasonable since those three represent the Dim Party base of senile old fools, rich anarchists looking for a hobby,and retarded black racists.

The establishment/moderate wing wants Biden, the women-of-color activists want Harris and the pink money is supporting Buttigieg.

@jmyrlefuller

I'm kinda hoping Buttplug wins the Dim primary. I think he would be the most entertaining.

Biden is a Gaffe Machine with more baggage than a Boeing 787.

Buttigieg is a failing mayor who is too unsubstantial to be a lightweight.

Kammy is so unprincipled, such a tyrant-wannabe, that she should scare Dems.

And yet a paragon of virtue compared to Clinton...

Biden would do less damage.
Harris is mentally smarter and lawyer smarter and would do the worst damage.
The Butt guy surely won't win and have his husband in the White House - Sodom, anyone?

Not to quibble, but Biden would do exactly as much damage as a liberal Congress would allow him to do - no different than 0bama. Do you seriously believe his court nominations would be any less extreme? We're still paying the price for what we got from the supposedly "moderate" Clinton.

Caveat: Biden would do less damage only if Congress, or at the very least the Senate, remains in Republican hands.

Biden is an empty vessel. If the Woke Squad is the most influential force in Congress, he'll be pushed in that direction.

Kinda agree with that.

Biden has the best chance of playing to the right of Tump, and therefore, probably the best chance.
He is also a palatable compromise to the two primary monied factions - Clintons and Obama - so more of a unity candidate.

Harris could be divisive, Clintons v. Obama, but is far more a 'true believer' and calculating. Far more dangerous... And probably viewed as more likely to survive Tump... While the opposite is true (Biden more likely to survive)... Still, because of their view, probably the pick in the end.
