Data as a Property Right -- Yang has an interesting stance

    The right to be informed as to what data will be collected, and how it will be used

    The right to be told if a website has data on you, and what that data is
    The right to be forgotten; to have all data related to you deleted upon request
    The right to be informed if ownership of your data changes hands
    The right to be informed of any data breaches including your information in a timely manner
    The right to download all data in a standardized format to port to another platform

This is a pretty radical departure from what we have right now.

That's how it should be. I like this guy best out of all contenders. Wish he had a chance.

Warren/Yang is a possibility, I guess. But Debbie is betting it is going to be Warren/Buttigieg.

<added>  Just ran across this.

Total cash on hand:
Sanders $33.7 m (and a heart attack)
Warren $25.7
Buttigieg $23.4 m
Harris $10.5 m
Biden $9 m
Yang $6.3 m

Pete seems like a smart guy. Doubt he would hitch his wagon to that woman. He would be better served waiting until 2024.

BUT if Bloomberg were to get back in THAT would be a rice.

Meanwhile, she would be nuts to take Yang as VP. Yang speaks his mind, which is a terrible quality in a VP. Imagine President Pence and VP Trump. That's sort of how I imagine Warren/Yang (though Yang has more self-control than Trump, he says what's on his mind)

Debbie thinks that Buttigieg carries as much as a 20% "hidden" voter base.  He's not electable as president, but he adds a youth-ish dynamic as vp.

As an aside, I don't think any of the candidates in either party are worth powder & shot.

I was thinking the opposite.  I think thee are a lot of Americans who privately wouldn't vote for a gay man.  I don't know if it is as high as 20% though.

Yeah, but they're gonna vote Republican anyway. hhh

>a lot of Americans who privately wouldn't vote for a gay man.

I'm thinking (& hearing) he's a big deal with the under-35 crowd. Big enough to *maybe* get them out to vote.

..and look at that cash-on-hand.  That's coming from somebody.

Michael Bloomberg Prepares To Enter The Presidential Race

Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is preparing to enter the 2020 Democratic primary despite saying earlier this year he would not run for president, according to the NYT. The billionaire environmentalist has been privately weighing a bid for the White House for weeks and has not yet made a final decision on whether to run, an adviser said. But in the first sign that he is seriously moving toward a campaign, Bloomberg has dispatched staffers to Alabama to gather signatures to qualify for the primary there. Though Alabama does not hold an early primary, it has a Friday deadline for candidates to formally enter the race.

AP adds that Bloomberg opens the door to a presidential run because the field of Democratic candidates is "not well positioned" to defeat Trump.

You know, I think it's old farts like us who think that way. I keep seeing articles that one of the growing splits in the evangelical movement is between young and old on attitudes toward homosexuality. The young people just don't get this aspect of the culture wars.

That said, I think if he were a *single* gay man, that would be one thing. I think voters are just barely ready for a First Man if the president is a woman, but not ready for a First Man to Mr President. Could be wrong. I honestly know very few 18-30 year old conservatives. Lots of libertarians in that age group though. In fact, a large proportion of the libertarians I know are in that age group and, as a rule, libertarians don't care who you marry as long as it doesn't affect them and they don't have to pay extra for your marriage choices.

>>Bloomberg

I thought he would be a top candidate in 2016 and thought he should have run then, but I floated the idea to some New Yorkers. The big pushback they had was they thought he was way too boring and had no personality. They said it was bad enough to have him as mayor, they can't imagine him as president. That.
