Beto O’Rourke, the former Texas congressman whose 2018 Senate bid against Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) lifted his national profile, has jumped into the 2020 presidential race.

"The only way for us to live up to the promise of America is to give it our all and to give it for all of us," he said in a video announcing his candidacy early Thursday.

How are we going to turn this mulligan stew into a cohesive, coherent agenda next year...

I highly doubt. Eric will get far, especially once this is released...

My stay in purgatory continues.

Every day another would-be president announces they're running and several more announce they're thinking about it.

Here, the way to become a presidential candidate is to lose an election for a lower office. 

This is not unlike the way sports teams tank for higher draft choices.

Here, lawyers doing pressers outside a courthouse get shouted down.

Indictments are announced. Sentences are issued. People quarrel about the length of the sentences.

Here people are not to be persuaded but to be owned.

And we wait for the the report that never comes.

I sit and await my evaluation. I am not uncomfortable.

I feel your pain.  If I lived in Iowa or New Hampshire, I think I'd be moving to another place until November 2020.

I'm liking Mayor Pete more and more.  Mr. Starbucks was bragging about his military service and Buttigieg reminded him that he had served a lot longer including time in battle.
