Which Democrat?

The first question occurs to me, which Democrat currently running would I prefer:

  • To face President Trump in November
  • To be president if Trump is defeated in November by the Democrat

The second question is which Democrat would be the absolute worst to win the presidency.

The answers are two Democrats, since one is the answer to two questions.

Who would I prefer to face Trump in November?

The short answer is Bernie Sanders.

The reason for this preference is because I believe Bernie has the best chance among the front runners to get beaten soundly by Trump. He’s also the best chance of causing the Democrat majority in the house to disappear.

Who would I prefer to be president if Trump were to be defeated in November?

The short answer is Tulsi Gabbard.

The reason for this preference is because Tulsi shows patriotism: she’s a serving Army National Guard officer.  She also seems far less crazy than Sanders or Warren.

Would she be a genuine threat to Trump if she were to get the Democrat nomination? I don’t know. I rather doubt it, but it seems possible she might stand a better chance than any of the other Democrats. She’s seems quite personable, has intelligence and ability to think on her feet, is an attractive person, and doesn’t have the baggage that some of the other major candidates have: she’s not an obvious liar like Warren, is not a crazy Socialist like Bernie, nor an apparent dementia case like Biden. I can’t compare her to Buttigieg or Klobuchar, since I’m not knowledgeable enough about them. But I do have a small positive feeling about Klobuchar, given her raising of the hand about concern with socialism at the last Democrat debate (alone of all the others). But that’s all I got with Klobuchar.

I might have to study both Buttigieg and Klobuchar a bit more, given that they have both managed to step a bit closer to front-runner status than they were previously.

Which Democrat would be the absolute worst to win the presidency?

The short answer is Bernie Sanders.

The reason for this fear is that Bernie is, at best, a socialist, and at worst, a closet communist.  He is also in poor health (recent heart attack), meaning that whichever loonie tune he selected as vice president would be president in short order (and I dread thinking who that might be). And it has become apparent that a number of his campaign workers are absolute communist sympathizers, talking privately about sending people  with whom they disagree to re-education camps, among other things. Bernie has attracted such dregs of humanity that I am certain that he would destroy the United States.

Fortunately, he has a snowball’s chance in hell of getting elected.

An Interesting Correspondance

Isn’t it interesting that my preference for Trump’s opponent is the same person who I feel would be the absolutely worst president?
