I'm Staring to really feel this. Amy is actually on the way.

I have felt a growing optimism since the September debate. Since the last one the that sense has exploded.

I can now see Amy finishing in Iowa anywhere from first to 3rd and that changes the race.
It is of course not only of her doing, except that she has run her whole campaign to be in this place. But the tiff between Warren and Buttigieg seems to have had a real effect on both.
She is moving up at exactly the correct moment to take the lions share of their support come caucus night.

1. I agree.

I got a call from a polling group. I wasn't sure I was ready to commit until I actually told the pollster i was voting for AK in the primary.

The rest of the polling had to do with how likely I was to vote for other Democratic candidates if they were the nominee. I rated all of them very highly.

As Nicolle Wallace says, I'd vote for a candidate's campaign bus before voting for trump. Hell, I'd vote for typhoid fever before voting for trump.

2. I like Mayor Pete, but...

...I don't think he's quite ready for prime time.

RESIST!

4. 2020 Candidate Amy Klobuchar Completes Tour of All 99 Iowa Counties

https://time.com/5756407/amy-klobuchar-iowa-tour-99-counties/


By SARA BURNETT / AP December 29, 2019

(HUMBOLDT, Iowa) — To Amy Klobuchar, her just-completed tour of all 99 Iowa counties proves a point: As president, she would go everywhere and represent everyone, even in the heart of Trump country.

That’s “part of my way of being,” the Minnesota senator told Iowans at a rural restaurant in Humboldt County — the final stop of her tour and a place that, like much of the lead-off caucus state, overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump in 2016. “I believe that we need someone as president who’s going to be the president for not half of America but all of America.”

Klobuchar is hoping to capitalize on caucus rules that can reward candidates who leave Democratic-heavy areas and large rallies to meet smaller groups in less populated counties. In those places, personal connections can be made over coffee or, as happened this month, over hot chocolate and convenience store breakfast pizza aboard Klobuchar’s campaign bus.

“The more places you can become viable, that just gets you on the board and you start earning delegates,” he said. “And so that’s why spreading this out and going everywhere is really key.” Especially, he said, for a senator from the rural state just to the north.
