This guy is in the race to boost his profile for a future run in ten years or so, I think he wants to be either Indiana governor or US senator and entering a pres primary like he done boosts name recognition esp locally in his environment...

Yes, his numbers are rising. I like the guy. He's certainly got the credentials to make an excellent choice and he's also very likable. He's young enough to be concerned about the future of our great country which makes him appealing. At this point, it's too early to get too interested however, I might appreciate him on the ticket. The only problem is his name. Lord have mercy, can you imagine how many ways that could get butchered?

Mayor Pete is smooth, that's for sure.

Thing about him is is that  as POTUS he's just not electable  and even in the #2 slot he would be a drag on the top slot.

He would be useful in certain cabinet slots however and certainly has a bright future in politics in any role that involves compassion.

Not sure if this will post__still having problems here.

Not so sure it's 7 languages and a couple of them are essentially the same or close.

Fact is that he's a very smart guy who expresses himself in a way that few can.

He's got a problem though and it's one that for the time being can't be overcome. The good news is that Pete is young and has plenty of time to win the hearts and minds of at least a portion of the nations so called religious right an ultra conservatives.

The mission at hand__defeating Trump, retaking the Senate or both will require candidates that are attractive to Dems, Indy's and a decent share of R's.  Mayor Pete fails this test.
