Long Debate Night

The first culling of the herd of Democratic Presidential candidates is tonight. You can watch it on MSNBC, Telemundo and probably Youtube. I’ll try to add some links as the hour grows nearer.

It still seems too early but we have so many contenders that we’ve got to do an early elimination round or two. Tonight’s big draws will be Warren, Booker and Beto. Will Tulsi Gabbard steal the show? Unlikely, but she does look good on camera. Julian Castro and Jay Inslee are also on tonight.

Most of them seem overqualified. I mean, compared to who is president now. Trump will probably spend his time tweeting what he considers to be clever names for his competitors. Let’s ignore him for now. What am I saying?? The media can’t ignore him. It’s like some kind of mutualism. They’ve got to cover every stupid tweet and Trump has to over supply. They complete each other.

So, what are you interested in hearing? Will Lester Holt ask Warren about being part Native American? It’s the most pointless, uninteresting question out there so for sure someone is going to ask.

Will Beto get all wispy eyed and channel his best Robert Kennedy before he chirps, “This is fun! I can do this jumping on a countertop!”

Will Booker say anything not maudlin or overly sincere?

How long will it take Tulsi to self-eliminate?

What questions do you want them to ask? Who do you want to succeed? Will Amy bring her eating comb?

Have at it, people.
