1. Pretty easy also after October

By qualifying before the November debate she is under no pressure in that debate. She and Sanders will both be free to take an easier approach.
November is likely to be Booker's last hurrah and Harris has to arrest the slide.
Biden/Buttigieg/Warren will be going after each other.
Bernie being Bernie can just be himself.

But with really no pressure and likely little incoming Amy can sit back and essentially be supportive to those being attacked. I expect she will support both Biden and Warren given the chance.

2. Oh, I think she has to keep the momentum

She is still in the single digit in the poll. Certainly the October debate put her on the map but she has to keep going.

And... welcome to DU.

3. Yes

but right now she needs to keep options open.
She has always been running to be the Captain of Team D and not the general of the Army. "There is more that unites us then divides us"

Right now with December in the bag. in the November debate she will continue the differentiation, but will support the candidates on all sides when she can. She is very aware that most of her eventual support is sitting with others right now.

But she is very good at this, and coming to support can still reinforce the attacking point being made by the others.
Right now she will let others mix it up and pick her shots. Klobuchar's strength is how well she wears over time. Her strategy has been slow build, stay around until decision point, and start to move then. She is now in fifth or sixth and rising, the longshot candidate mentioned the most.


Been years since I was here. But needed to talk about the best candidate in the field.
