An obscure statistic about the Presidential field...

 
Nine candidates are running using only their FIRST name:
Beto
Bernie
Tulsi
Julian
Amy
Julian
Pete
Marianne
Cory

...and seven candidates are running using only their LAST name:
Gillibrand
Gravel
Inslee
Hickenlooper
Warren
Yang
Delaney

Only three candidates are running using BOTH names:
Eric Swalwell
Kamala Harris
Tim Ryan

And they all are DU clones. What is your point?

Running only using their 1st name is going to turn out to be a bad decision for at least two of them.  :rofl:
The policies that are indorsed by this party, that they backer of which are much of the 1 percent, causes a social structure much like the one back before the Revolution.

And one is running with a nickname given to him by his politician father in hopes that it would ingratiate him with the locals for political purposes.  His first name is Robert and he's Irish

It seems as though the dazzling young brooklynite is trying to keep his DUmmy account current and name in front of the primitives but has decided to lay off speaking truth to power so as not to offend the masses.

Of course it will be a delight to see when he suddenly shifts gears once Clinton makes her move.
"We will bring back our jobs. We will bring back our borders. We will bring back our wealth - and we will bring back our dreams!" -President Donald J. Trump 1/20/17

"You've been talking about Russia for the last three years, all day, every day then all of a sudden it comes out that the whole thing is a hoax, which is what my father, and myself, and Lara, and Don, and Ivanka and everybody else have been saying and all of a sudden they want to talk about health care. “This is why they're going to lose. This is why they're going to lose in 2020.”

And what once burned so bright is growing dim?
And when you see what's been achieved
Is there a feeling that you've been deceived?

Pete

When his name comes up on the TV news, they always seem to refer to Pete Buttigieg as Mayor Pete.  That sounds to my ears like a very childish, childlike way to refer to the guy:

Honey, did you do anything interesting at school today?  Yes mommy, we went on a class field trip to city hall and met Mayor Pete!

It's ok for 3rd graders to talk like that, but not TV news anchors.

I think the reason that they avoid using his last name is because it's pronounced booty-judge.  He is gay and his name is booty-judge--that is an invitation to mockery and snickers and the anchormen can't keep a straight face while saying it.

When he decided to get into politics he should have just changed his name.  He didn't even have to change his name, just make a subtle change in how it's pronounced, beauty-gig, for example.
