As a Canadian, I have no real invested interest in the democratic debate, or the US election.  However, if I were an American, I’d be wondering whether these candidates should be playing golf in Florida (with a retired Donald Trump)?  Don’t get me wrong, I’m pretty close to the same age as Biden, Sanders, Warren & Trump.  Therefore, I feel I’m as qualified to judge as anyone.

Democratic Debate

Call me crazy, but “Mayor Pete,” Buttigieg is the most sensible of the bunch, but I’ve watched much television over the decades I’ve been around, and his ‘name’ is unfortunate.  President Buttigieg just doesn’t sound right, which no doubt is why he is better known as ‘Mayor Pete.’  On the plus side, he’s as articulate as Obama.  On the not-so-plus side he’s white.

I’d appreciate your own impressions…leave a comment.
