Klobuchar is a moderate, great speaker, easy to understand, straight talker, personable, smart, no negatives, authentic. She will be President one day, not sure if it will be 2020.
I saw her CNN town hall last night and turned over with 15 minutes to go. She just isn't that interesting as a candidate. That might be just what the D need of course, but she didn't appeal to me.

I did like the fact that she was prepared to give a direct 'No' to the question of if she was for free college for all.

She doesn't support that either. It's 'asperational' but we can't expect that it will be implemented in full, nor implemented quickly.

That sounds like she is disqualifying herself from the get go.

Klobuchar is smart and pragmatic. But she certainly won't get votes from the Sanders wing of the party. The negative I've heard about her is that she is extremely difficult to work for.

Precisely. Actually both Trump and Sanders should’ve run as independents had US politics not been so utterly reliant on the machinery of the two party system.

Worked for him last time so not sure why this would be an issue.

The Democrats should be pushing for free healthcare for children. They seems to have smeared every left wing cause across their plate rather than concentrating on a couple of big ones that are harder to fight against and that will open the door to actual change.

That's a little small time for the current mood of the party. Medicare for all would, presumably, include the children.

Haven't you heard? Deficits don't matter!

I'm more concerned about the veritable tsunami of corporate debt that will come due in the next 2-4 years then the Federal debt.
