I just watched the White House briefing on COVID-19. These are my thoughts and takeaways: The most important factor is that the briefing was grounded in science. Pence presented a facts based overview on what has been done, who is doing it, and how the cruise ship in California is being dealt with. The scientists … Continue reading Thoughts on COVID-19
I'm listening to the analysis on CNN after Elizabeth Warren withdrew from the race for president today. A large part of the talk is that now there are only two old white men left.

Part of me hopes it happens, if for no other reason, to watch Trump's head … Continue reading Trump, Bernie, and Bloomberg
The results from New Hampshire clarified a lot for me. This is the toughest choice I've ever had to make in an election. Usually it's easy, I choose the candidate that best matches my values and who has a least some chance of winning. I voted for Bernie in 2016 because he has a message … Continue reading New Hampshire: Thank You!
Today we wait. Am I happy? No. Am I pleased? Yes. Paper. There is a paper trail. And it's all an open process. Every one of the people in every one of the hundreds, the thousands of rooms that conducted the caucuses saw what happened. They went home knowing what happened, who won and lost … Continue reading Iowa: The morning after…
