I'm surprised no one talked about the climate change town hall debate:
I agree with pretty much every point of this article. It was a pretty well done town hall, (1) Jay Inslee got pretty much everything he wanted out of his candidacy except the presidency himself, there were good, knowledgeable questions being asked that got to the meat of the subject (sometimes literally), and it was a good move for CNN and the Democratic party to hold it. Bernie kicked ass, showing masterful knowledge of the subject matter and the details of his plan. Warren did well too, and had a few good lines. (2) Biden looked like a fool and is being portrayed as one all over because he was stupid enough to schedule an oil and gas fundraiser with the super rich right after this town hall. He's looking more obsolete by the second.
Edit: Also, while the Dems do get to look good for doing this, the credit is being rightfully given to the Sunrise Movement for successfully pushing for this.
Thanks for the link, I didn't watch it.
(1): This is what I mean, when I say a candidacy for president can be successful even if you don't become president. Climate change may have been an issue in the discussion, but the pressure the Jay Inslee candidacy put on the other candidates made sure it is a big issue. I hope the same for Tulsi Gabbard and the issue of war, Andrew Yang and the issue of automatisation and Julian Castro and the issue of immigration.
(2): Yeah well, Biden is stupid enough to make his allegiations clear. Many politicians do the same as Biden, but they are aware of public focus and are much more cautious with stuff like this. Biden probably thinks he gets away with it as a front-runner. But the point is, even if the primaries go down as the current polls are, then Biden has no majority of electors. And I see a high probability of Warren and Sanders allying in a brokered convention.
