And, surprising no one, now Beto. I'm guessing that the frontrunners, then, are him, Harris, and Sanders.

His attack dog qualities served him well as a running mate; as his own man, I don't think he'll play. There have also been stories that his dithering has meant funding sources have already found homes.

Painful dissection of whether Beto's life has been sufficiently punk: https://theslot.jezebel.com/is-beto-a-p ... 1833288379

Even tho it's clearly a fluffy piece, the whole This is Punk and That's Not Punk categorization is wincing.

It makes me feel better though that she's a woman of color. I thought it was pretty funny, but I took exception to her slam on Big Star.

Stuff like his commitment in college to body improvement not being punk—plenty of hardcore scenes emphasize strength and body purity. And punks don't like capitalism? Punks may talk a good game and genuinely loathe corporate capitalism, but, yeah, very few actually hate capitalism.

I think of him as a John Edwards who is even more vague.


He’s a cipher for centrists to put whatever hopes and dreams they have into.

I can see him topping every candidate's VP list for those very reasons. Young, personable, ideologically mishmosh-y. A Bernie/Beto ticket would thrill a lot of focus-group politics sorts.

He’s definitely got VP potential. I do think he would do better for the Dems by staying in Texas and trying to unseat Cornyn, but ego is as ego does.

Well, Clinton was also an imperialist corporate liberal who managed to lose to a semi-literate fascist chimp. Rather than spin her as a victim, grant her the respect of being the incompetent monster who was a wretched enough candidate that made Trump a viable candidate.

Also, people forget she ran for president in 2008 and also lost. It's not like Chillary didn't get multiple shots to grab the brass ring.
