Why would anyone drop out?


Stick it out hope you catch fire and parlay that into a cabinet position

Thatís the play

Itís still really early...

Also Hutch:

His impact with the average American was zero

Twitterverse or politicalheads are not America

The guy was barely registering in the polls and we want to say he had impact? Maybe negative impact

So what?

Still try to catch lightning is the play...you just never know


But did Inslee have impact ...no

In his case dropping out makes sense like Hickenlooper cause he wants to run for re-election

If you can get other people to drop out first..Outlast  the others then maybe you can eventually command a premium for your endorsement

There is no contradiction between saying a candidate had no impact and saying a smart candidate (unless needing to run for re-election) would do well to hold out til Iowa

I mean what do you have to lose? Run a shoestring campaign, focus on Iowa and see what happens

Absolutely nothing to lose, fundraising money to gain (just don't take on any debt):

Michael Bennet - not up for re-election until 2022    
Steve Bullock - termed out, hard to go from executive office to being the junior seat in the Senate (as much as I want him to)                 
John Delaney  - doesn't currently have a job         
Joe Sestak - out of a job, best chance for people to not forget who he is

Tom Steyer - has nothing to do but burn money.  And he has a lot of it.   
Marianne Williamson - nothing to lose, name recognition will help sell her books.
Kirsten Gillibrand - not up for re-election until 2024.  Hmm, run now, then again in 2024?         
Bill de Blasio - termed out in 2021.  Nothing else to do?


These two however, it's a fair question:

Tim Ryan -  will drop out as soon as his House seat is in danger.  Right now it's safe.
Tulsi Gabbard - will drop out as soon as her House seat is in danger.  Right now it's safe.  Also wants to be Bernie's VP candidate.

This is a little harsh. I mean, he's not the funniest guy but he moves some tickets when he's out on tour. Being friends with the syphilis-patient on SNL has helped raise his profile.

I guess them not being on the stage is good and am starting to agree with how they decided to winnow out the field

I just think that it's an absurd circus to have to listen to so many try to do stand out things to get some attention

I think you can watch him on Netflix for free, in your own living room.
