Last night’s Democratic debate was even worse than the night before and the big takeaway if you missed it is that you didn’t miss anything. At this point, Elizabeth Warren has been officially declared the winner and she wasn’t even on stage last night. The CNN moderators, Dana Bash, Jake Tapper, and Don Lemon, seem to have drawn the most ire. While the constantly interrupted candidates on the first night, the second was dedicated to attempts to get the Democrats...

The second round of debates for the herd of Democratic presidential candidates got underway last night. Unlike the current office holder, the ten wannabe presidents who gathered in Detroit demonstrated their seriousness about policy. In fact, that was the theme of the evening – parsing policy differences about health care, student debt forgiveness and foreign policy. The back and forth among the candidates was a window into the future of the Democratic party. The party has been drifting leftward recently–although not...

A conservative network of radio stations is refusing to air an interview with South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D). The 2020 Democratic presidential candidate did an interview with Blair Garner on his Nash FM show. The show is usually about country music. Garner said that Buttigieg reached out to him. “I think that our base tends to be more conservative,” he said during the interview. “And the fact that you, from the Democratic ticket, are the singular candidate to reach out and...

For the mayor of a small midwestern city, Pete Buttigieg sure is a fundraising machine. He raised almost $25 million dollars for his presidential campaign in the second quarter of the year, raking in more money than any of his competitors, including former Vice President Joe Biden. Now Buttigieg has tapped into a rich vein of money: Hollywood donors. Apparently the combination of Buttigieg’s smarts and his historic campaign as the first major gay presidential candidate is enough to make...

The second Democratic debate featured more squabbling than the first one, highlighting the generational divide with which the party is grappling. It also shakes the race up, thanks to the performances of some of the key candidates. As might be expected, the front runner, Joe Biden, was faced with the toughest questions and the most attacks from fellow candidates. In one devastating moment, Sen. Kamala Harris effectively eviscerated the former VP for his opposition to busing by telling him that...

Our friends over at GLAAD have issued five questions about LGBTQ rights that moderators should ask at tonight’s democratic debate – and they’re spot on. A two night spectacle, the debates will air from 9-11pm Eastern time simultaneously on NBC, MSNBC, and Telemundo. Savannah Guthrie, Lester Holt, Chuck Todd, Rachel Maddow, and José Diaz-Balart will moderate. With so many candidates, the debate has been broken into two nights featuring ten candidates each evening. Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Former Texas Congressman Beto...

The first Democratic candidate debate featured 10 candidates, most of whom you probably never heard of and some of which you will likely not hear about again, at least in this context. With so many candidates on the stage, it was hard for any single candidates to stand out. Still, a couple of candidates did manage to distinguish themselves: Elizabeth Warren and Julian Castro in particular. Thanks to an exchange with Rep. Tim Ryan, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard also did better...

A recent Quinnipiac Poll found that the top six Democratic presidential candidates, including out South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, beating Donald Trump in head-to-head matchups. According to the poll, if Buttigieg faced off against Trump in the general election, he would win 47% of the popular vote, while Trump would win 42%. Former Vice President Joe Biden had the biggest lead against Trump, winning with 53% of the vote to Trump’s 40%. But Trump would be trounced by many of the...

Representative and Democratic presidential candidate Seth Moulton (D-MA) said that he would have the Pentagon review the dishonorable discharges LGB servicemembers received prior to being allowed to serve openly and possibly change them to honorable discharges. Under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell (DADT), which was repealed in 2011, LGB people were not allowed in the military if they were out of the closet. Before DADT, LGB people were banned from the military. According to Moulton’s campaign website, “more than 100,000 gay servicemembers”...
