Friday the 13th. could be bad news for one or more of the candidates who participated in the Democratic Party debate last night. Once again, I felt overwhelmed by the number of persons who met the criteria to participate in the debate, the merry-go-round format of questions and answers at dizzying speeds. I haven’t watched the post-debate analysis today so I have no idea who the media thinks won, lost, or was neutral in the outcomes of the performances. I’m sure I’m not a good judge because I confess my favorables floated among all the candidates with the same dizzying speeds of their answers.
I’ve decided to whittle my choices for the next debate using the non-scientific method of a name game. I am assigning point values to my reaction of the names if they were President with 1 point being the lowest and 3 being the highest. I invite you to play along in the privacy of your own home. Then we can compare our results. Isn’t this fun?
President Amy – 1 point
President Cory – 2 points
President Pete – 3 points
President Bernie – 1 point
President Joe – 1 point
President Warren – 2 points
President Harris – 3 points
President Yang – 1 1/2 points (he gets the extra half point for sending me $1,000 a month)
President Beto – 2 points
President Castro – 2 points
Now about the score. Looks like Pete and Harris each had 3 points. Cory, Warren, Beto and Castro each had 2 points. Yang had 1 1/2 points. Amy, Bernie and Joe each got 1 point.
So, according to my name game poll, my next debate would inclue Pete, Harris, Cory, Warren, Beto and Castro. Say goodbye to my bottom vote-getters.
Hm. I detect a pattern here, but I’ll let you have it your way, too.
Really, the only name I hope never to see with the title of President again is Donald Trump. Please.
Have a great weekend. Stay tuned.
