We Democrats have some very good candidates this time. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Julian Castro … I’d be happy to have any of them as President.
So please Democrats. Pick your favorite and support that person without thinking that means attacking the other ones.
We’re all on the same team and we’re debating who is the most valuable player. We don’t have to say bad things about the other players to build up our favorite.
Saying “I prefer Harris’ health plan to Booker’s” is not an attack, and you can then debate why. Saying “Booker is an idiot and his plan is the stupidest ever and I will never vote for him” doesn’t help at all.
This does not apply if one of these candidates turns out to be corrupt or does illegal things. Yeah, then they deserve to be attacked.
So let’s keep our debate civil and reasonable, and not do the Republican (and Russian) job for them.
After the Bernie vs. Hillary dust-up in 2016, we really don’t need the personal-level in-fighting.
