    The name hurts.........but otherwise he's a substantive guy with a future.......


    2020 WATCH -- ISAAC DOVERE interviews PETE BUTTIGIEG in Topeka, Kansas in the latest "Off Message" podcast: "Pete Buttigieg's PAC is investing money here -- but also in Georgia, Arizona, Michigan and Colorado. And Iowa, per an announcement coming Tuesday. Next month, he'll campaign in Ohio.

    "It's not happenstance. Nor is keeping on Lis Smith, the hard-charging political operative who makes sure he's constantly in the news. Or keeping up with Obama strategist David Axelrod, who recommended he hire Smith in the first place for the Democratic National Committee chair race that put him on Democrats' radar last year. Or quietly building relationships over dinners and drinks with big-name Democrats, or courting national reporters, or wooing donors for his PAC, or digging in on political advertising research.

    "Buttigieg is getting closer to a presidential race. And serious people are telling the South Bend, Indiana mayor, who'd be the first major presidential candidate who's either openly gay or an Afghanistan veteran or a millennial, to take it seriously." https://politi.co/2DXTNNf

    2020 WATCH ...
    -- NYT's JONATHAN MARTIN in JACKSON, MISSISSIPPI: "Bernie Sanders Courts Black Voters Anew. But an Obama Reference Stings": "Senator Bernie Sanders insists he hasn't decided whether to run again for president, but a 14-hour sprint across the Deep South on Wednesday made clear that he is not only thinking about it but is already trying to remedy his most significant vulnerability in 2016: his lack of support from black voters. ...


    "On Wednesday night, after the Jackson forum, Mr. Sanders faced sharp criticism from some African-Americans who thought he had reduced the nation's first black president, Barack Obama, to merely being what Mr. Sanders called a 'charismatic individual.' ...


    "'Yes, I'm a fairly private person and I don't like to talk about every aspect of my life,' Mr. Sanders acknowledged in a dressing-room interview after the forum. 'I think a lot of politicians do that in a way that is not appropriate. ... 'Somebody might be interested in what I did 50 years ago, that's fine,' Mr. Sanders said with an evident lack of enthusiasm. 'Or what I did yesterday. But what people have got to start focusing on is not me. It's how we transform America.'" https://nyti.ms/2uLQRDK


    -- CLIP AND SAVE: "Warren: I'll serve my full Senate term if reelected," by Massachusetts Playbooker Lauren Dezenski in Dorchester, Massachusetts: "Elizabeth Warren said she would serve her full six-year term in the Senate if reelected this November. 'Yes, that's my plan. I'm running for the United States Senate in 2018,' Warren told reporters Thursday, when asked if she would commit to serving out her full term. 'I am not running for president of the United States. That's my plan.'" https://politi.co/2H1vRxM


    -- "Kander hires Des Moines Register scribe amid 2020 buzz," by California Playbooker David Siders and Isaac Dovere: "Potential 2020 presidential candidate Jason Kander is hiring an Iowa-based communications director as his national organization staffs up. Kander, the former Missouri secretary of state and failed 2016 Senate candidate who has become an unlikely national Democratic figure, is bringing on Jason Noble, who on Friday announced he was leaving his job as political reporter for the Des Moines Register." https://politi.co/2uMDdAg

    I really hope not, and don't think he has much of a personality chance, but he can raise money, (for all the good that did Jeb Bush in 2016). I think he is too closely identified with both Clintons.

    2020 WATCH -- "The Macker readies for a second act," by Richmond Times-Dispatch's Jeff E. Schapiro: "In his kids' Jeep, Terry McAuliffe -- the Man of Constant Motion -- is driving himself to his youngest daughter's lacrosse game. It's been four years since he spent much time behind the wheel. McAuliffe got used to someone else doing the driving. With a laugh, he says he could get used to it again. Three months after leaving the Virginia governorship, the perquisites of which included a lumbering black SUV driven by a state trooper, McAuliffe is considering a second act: the presidency. ... These days, McAuliffe is doing what national prospects are supposed to do: traveling to key states, plumping for his party's candidates, tweeting, talking -- and listening.


    "He's squeezed in down time, relaxing with family and friends in Jamaica, the Bahamas, Miami Beach, Los Angeles and San Diego. And McAuliffe is re-familiarizing himself with automobiles. The McAuliffe who might seek the White House is very different from the McAuliffe who won the Executive Mansion. The personality is the same: hyper-caffeinated, smash-mouth, transactional, big-hearted, attuned to slights - actual and perceived. However, McAuliffe, once a national election operative, now has a record as a state elective official." http://bit.ly/2qfCOBa

    i'm a bit confused by Paul Ryan move today but could he be positioning himself to run in 2020 or is his withdrawal just an admission to his massive failure as Speaker of the House?

    For once, most commentators seem to take him at his word, about spending more time with family, for now.
    He was a reluctant, and compromise candidate for speaker, and has raised double the amount of money he pledged to. He says he's not running for Prez.....in 2020

    I think it's almost impossible for anyone to successfully lead the current house caucus. They're so fractured, it's like herding cats.
    Maybe that will change in 2019 if they suffer enough in the mid-terms.

    hmmm.... he announced this just 3 days after the FBI raided Cohen offices?


    and now we got 3 more days and T's on fire, dropped a few "surgical" bombs in Syria and no one really cares, and his mouth piece swept in our Spring cleaning ?
