I've had my eye on Mr Booker for a few years so I was really excited to learn he's running for president. I really enjoyed listening to him and moreover it seems like he has some solid leadership experience in making the impossible happen. I like the other Democratic runners too, so it's been hard for me to pick one out, but hearing him talk about his family history and his mayoral successes really sealed the deal. Plus he used the word Kerfuffle, which really won me over, as my husband and I literally started a podcast this week called Side Hustle Kerfuffle. So THAT happened.

Mr.Booker seems nice, but he isn't the person we need in the WH. first of all, while I agree race is a huge factor, making Baby Bonds about race is a mistake. make it about wealth inequality. Second, Baby Bonds is stupid. Nobody is going to vote for it, and it's incentive to have more babies. Fixing the tax system is necessary, but we need Warren for that. she understands it and can talk about it clearly and intelligently.

Mr. Booker talks and talks. I believe that he believes what he's saying and I like hearing what he's saying AND the ratio between how much he talks and how little he listens concerns me. perhaps it's just the way the game of running for office is played -- take every opportunity to make a pitch for your platform. I long for leaders who are as capable of making stump speeches as they are of being interviewed, having conversations, answering specific questions with specific answers rather than the "wind it up and spit it out again" style we see so much. JF could barely snatch enough airspace to pose questions. it was exhausting to listen to. the interview with Pete Buttigieg was a sterling example of a politician who has not lost his capacity to talk like a "regular" person, to listen to questions and contemplate before launching into a shpiel. I am wondering if any of the candidates meditate....
