Impressions after 30 minutes:
- Bernie needs a Xanax
- Warren needs to stay on offense rather than defense
- Harris is acquitting herself well
- Klobuchar’s public speaking just doesn’t resonate with me
- Yang is just sorbet
- 12 people is too many. Several of the candidates are race-talking like they’re trying to deliver an elevator pitch before the elevator doors close.
The format is awful and the byproduct is candidates talking at a rate so fast, this is all just white noise.
The more words-per-minute, the less useful.
This is useless.
