Sanders - With all the heat on Bloomberg he really doesn't have to do much in this debate. As long as he stays on message and doesn't make any serious gaffes, he will be fine.
And that may very well happen. He has been better about controlling the narrative of his campaign so far this time around.
Warren - She has clearly lost momentum for various reasons, so she will go after Bloomberg. That being said, she has to play to get some viability in Nevada at the same time.
She just needs to stay visible. I do not see her as being overly inspiring, but I still feel -in this moment- she is a more likely nominee than Sanders. There is some risk taking in her future, but she does not have a far left base to court/keep...
Buttigieg - There has been excellent reporting by the Hill on how Buttigieg is lying about his support in the Black Community and also using some black supporters as props to play to this group. Since he isn't doing well with minorities in general, I don't think this comes up but he needs to find a way to reach out to some of these voters and get a bit of support. Otherwise he will have no momentum at all on Super Tuesday.
He does, but he needs to be careful with that. His mayoral history is not minority friendly and trying to court that will undoubtedly bring this to light.
Klobuchar - As a woman and a strong debater, I suspect she will be the primary one to attack Bloomberg on his treatment of women. I don't know if it will translate into support for her, but if she can lay into Bloomberg it will hurt him immensely. The risk for her is that Bloomberg counter attacks on Klobuchar's reported poor treatment of her staff. But she has to try. She also needs to reach out to Minority voters as well. That being said, Minnesota is a super Tuesday State and I think she could win it.
The worst and least professional of the bunch -by far-. It would be nice if she is the next to go.
In any case, I do not see how she is per se a string debate presence. She will take jabs at Bloomberg or whomever the easiest target is. But I have yet to see her having made any good or even memorable points.
Her issues with staff are also problematic, yes. This tells me that in practice, she would be little, if any, better than trump. A revolving door situation waiting to develop. It is an opening for someone like Bloomberg or Buttigieg to exploit.
I am surprised to see Biden winding down so fast; I thought would have been a more after
Super Tuesday thing. But I will take it. There is just too much Hillary on that guy to make a win a realistic guarantee.
Not sure if we will learn much more about Bloomberg. . .
Do not worry about what anyone says. You are trying your hardest. And that is ok.
It’s perfectly natural to be surprised by something coming at you faster than light. You’d never see it coming anyway. . .
