Roughly a month ago I read a flattering Medium piece about Pete Buttigieg — “flattering”, that is, as in factual. I’m asking all the HE hang-backers (the ones who constantly say “Pete is too young, too inexperienced, the culture isn’t ready for a gay President, he’ll have another shot”) to just read it. It’ll take you all of nine minutes.
And then you can go back to your embrace of Typewriter Joe or Elizabeth Warren — either of whom I would be okay with (i..e, disappointed but accepting) if they won the nomination. They’re just not as vital, exciting and ideally suited to the 20s as Pete. Being older in years means nothing — it’s about brains, judgment, humanity and character.
Who is the wiser, smarter and more mature person, Greta Thunberg or Donald Trump?
