#Independent is a place for posting political articles released by the British news service.
Mayor Pete is far from stupid and is putting party first…unlike Warren and Klobuchar, who cannot possibly think that they will suddenly become any kind of threat. He’s a smart guy and yes, he has probably been promised some kind of deal to step aside.
He is putting himself first. He knows that disaster would be waiting for him on Super Tuesday and he wants to save his face for 2024. Open a black sanctuary or something…
Nothing wrong with having a sense of realism. Klobuchar and Steyer were more valid early retirements but will be gone midweek along with thin Lizzie.
Buttigieg has given a good account of himself throughout the leadership race but was never looked at as having the experience needed to be a successful, viable option for the top job. I can see him punting for Biden should Joe continue his resurrection on Super Tuesday. We will wait and see.
