    Even with 10 folks, yeah, I agree, how are they going to debate each other?

    Assuming it's 1 hr each, might as well just give each candidate 6 minutes of talk time telling us voters why we absolutely must vote for him/her over the other 19 folks.

    DNC really should have all declared candidates vote for each other openly other than self in some sort of special primary, just to see how they'd rank based just on their own votes... and depending on the outcome, if the votes are really spread out, then perhaps we can have more finalists come together to debate the differences. But if it ends up only with few of them getting most of the 20 votes, then just narrow things down to those few candidates. Mayor Pete obviously would support Sanders, but I'd be interested to see who would Bernie support... Probably Warren?

    Anyway, 20 is ridiculous. Pretty sure most of these candidates are running out of their own vanity rather than what's good for the American people.

    There's definitely big divisions within the party over the "green new deal" concept and over Medicare for All. Biden will probably also be held to task for a lot of views he's had previously, like how he supported the Hyde Amendment as recently as a couple of weeks ago.

    I hate to say this, but I'm kinda hoping there's a big scandal that will take Biden out of the running. He's way too establishment for my liking, and more stuff keeps coming out about his odd behavior with women (Still NOTHING like Dotard has done, but somehow he gets a pass)

    Biden is better than Hillary IMHO, but I do agree, as a career politician, he has way too many baggages to deal with...

    Regarding the green new deal, I whole-heartedly agree with it in principle, but I'm scared to really fully support it. It's like we know USA the patient has a serious heart problem and needs a heart transplant, we don't have much time... and we've never actually performed a heart transplant surgery before..., but fuck, we'll figure it out as we go along. Let's just cut USA's chest open and see what happens... fingers crossed.

    It's like choosing between suffering a heart attack soon or have a high chance of dying on operating table.

    I think I'm still leaning toward suffering that heart attack in some unknown future... and starting eating healthy and exercise more... until doctors seriously figure out how we can fix the problem with confidence, I'm just not inclined to allow them to cut off my heart off and replacing it with a new one that might not even pump.

    I know green new dealers have good intentions, but I need to be reasonably sure that the road they paved won't send all of us to hell prematurely.

    The problem is is that we're the patient that got told 40 years ago to start eating healthy and exercise more and by this point we've missed our chance to do that.

    Understood.

    May USA be like the very 1st person who successfully had a green renewable heart transplant!

    If it works out, earth shall be saved.

    If not, at least we still have super powers like Russia and China around...
