yeah kamala going after biden was the highlight of the evening no doubt. everyone else looked like a bunch of amateurs in that department. i don’t think her appeal was about ruthlessness though, but about wit and stage persona. there was someone whose mind is alive. with booker it was a similar thing, he was the least robotic candidate of his night. but kamala seems more capable.
biden’s obama invocations were a way to say “i’m not a racist”. and he’s not, but also he’s a little out of touch with the times—and already slightly shriveled. he’d still be a *much* better option than the geriatric from the other party.
warren did okay. she’s not telegenic, but did okay. her appeal is in the policy arena. bernie-warren could be an actual ticket.
