This is exactly how I feel. I agree 100% with your take on Biden. He could pull it off, but I’d be surprised if he did considering his age. Warren is a legit contender, but as controversial as it may be to say, I don’t think she has the personality (or “likeability,” though I’m not a big fan of that term). I really like Tulsi Gabbard, but I know that a lot of progressives have very mixed feelings about her. Bloomberg has no chance, IMO, but I suppose he’s just about the only one I’d rule out (or maybe that’s just my personal bias talking, as he’s one of the few politicians who I truly, strongly dislike). So yeah, I don’t know, man. I have no guesses at all as to who might win this thing. There really isn’t anyone who stands out from the crowd. That could be good for the party, though. It means that whoever does win the nomination will have to work for it, as they won’t be able to coast on name recognition alone. And that of course should make them a stronger candidate in the general.
