    • He's impressive in many ways but he is competing with people with far more name recognition and national organization. Of course, that's what was said about Obama in 2007. Even if he doesn't make the ticket this time, I expect we'll be hearing more from him in the future.

      Washington Post conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin had some nice things to say about him today:

    • I did listen to his talk. And what struck me is that nowhere did he mention all the new jobs he created.

      A data center is great for bringing in tax revenues to the city, but how does such an innovation help the residents without a degree (70% of Americans did not graduate from a four year university)?

      The problem with tech industries is that the training and education bar is much higher and the number of jobs available is one-tenth or less than the jobs that were there before.

      Have him run for governor and create an economic miracle for Indiana. Then I’ll believe that he has ideas that are scalable.

    • I think he’s well aware that he’s not ready for the presidency yet, but putting his name in the hat gives him the exposure he needs to seek a higher office. He’ll get the necessary experience and then make a real run at the presidency in 4-8 years.

    • Another article about Pete Buttigieg...his is a very interesting background.

      I watched him on TV and was so impressed. His ideas just made so much sense. And he did not seem as ego driven as most politicians. He just seemed like a pleasant down to earth person which is like a breath of fresh air in politics.

      If not 2020 then maybe the next time?
