I feel like we're at a strategic disadvantage, because ultimately, it doesn't matter which of the dems wins the primary. I'll almost assuredly vote for them. Even though I want it to be Bernie, what's important are the teams of people appointed by POTUS, and whether or not they are competent (and also whether or not POTUS will listen to their advice, but that's just a Trump thing, right?). Bernie, Warren, and Yang would probably have some of the more ambitious deputies, and it's about damn time for ambition still rooted in some sort or objective reality.

I'm impressed that thenewgreen was like "Yang, tho" several months ago. The fact that Yang's heavy nerd-scientist bent appears to resonate with some non-negligible number of polled peeps makes me feel warm and fuzzy.
