Klobuchar started as a moderate and stuck with it

We have heard that the party has shifted to the left. Not true. Most of the new House members who flipped the seats are moderate. But as - to use a political phrase: Sanders and Warren sucked the oxygen - Harris and Booker tried to move along. And we now see the unfortunate results.

I think that Klobuchar and Biden - not sure about Buttigieg - remained steadfastly moderate, not buying the "freebies" offered by the others.

Yes, Castro, Bennet, Delaney are moderate, too, but unfortunately got lost in the leftist fervor.

1. Yes I agree

I picked her the day after the 2016 election. It doesn't look like she can break through.

2. Pragmatic

Not so much a moderate for moderation's sake. She targets progressive values and policies just doesn't get out of touch with all those she wants to follow. Do what can be done and a bit more, then wake up the next day and do some more.
