Saturday, I went to a political rally for Pete Buttigieg.  I ended up getting moved to the seated area because right place, right time.  

I had a ball.  I even made the paper:

I was the someone who shouted.

I left feeling really confident about Super Tuesday, my vote, the state of the union, and I was glad I'd wandered downtown for an event.

And then, 24 hours later...


And since then, as of today, Klobuchar is out, too.  And they are both backing Biden.

I have no idea what I'm going to do - this leaves Biden, Bloomberg, Sanders and Warren on the table.

So, as long as it's not Bloomberg, I can back any contender - even if it is Bloomberg, to quote the musical Hamilton, "Hold your nose and close your eyes...".

But wouldn't it be nice to be excited about the election, rather than resigned?

Oh well - at least I can say, I knew him when.

That's pretty cool. I was really excited about Mayor Pete's candidacy, especially since, having gone to college in Indiana, I thought of Mike Pence as more representative of the state. As a side note: I very nearly went to Hanover. Pence is an alum, and so is Woody Harrelson. Several faculty members signed a letter to Pence stating that he did not represent the values of integrity and respect for education they'd tried to instill in him, and now I regret not going there.
Anyway Buttigieg is still young and I sincerely hope this isn't the last we've seen of him on the national stage.
