Sunday/ meet Pete

Well, it’s official: Pete Buttigieg (say ‘Boot-Edge-Edge’) kicked off his 2020 Presidential campaign today, in his hometown of South Bend, Indiana.

As the New York Times notes: ‘If elected, Mr. Buttigieg, a 37-year-old Rhodes scholar and veteran of the war in Afghanistan, would represent a series of historic firsts: the youngest president ever and the first who is openly gay’.

Not to mention that there will be a First Husband in the White House for the first time. (Of course: that will also be the case if one of the women candidates is elected as President).

It’s a very crowded race for the Democratic nomination for President in 2020. We don’t know where the stock market will end up in 2020, and we certainly do not know at this point who will oppose Donald Trump and run him out of office. Here they are, the 18 Democrats that have officially announced that they are running for President for 2020. Notably missing, still: Joe Biden, VP under President Obama. It does not matter to me who wins the nomination: you sir, or you madam, you have my vote already. And I think my front lawn will look spectacular with each and every one of these campaign signs on it.
