      Hmm. Interesting. Saw an item on Buttigieg’s candidacy on 1news at 6 & said to ma as soon as they said he was gay, “Oh gawd, ma. What is it about the Democrats? Another candidate whose appeal will be to a small group of gay people & trendy younger liberals but who their older & more conservative heteros won’t have a bar of.”

      And then they played a couple of (very brief) excerpts from his campaign speeches. And I said, “Wow. Hmm, ma, I’ve changed my mind. This guy is way ahead of the pack so far. He’s certainly got the x fsctor with public speaking. One to watch.”
