The hovertext makes it sound like Mr. Munroe isn't familiar with DinoTrucks.

Con: His positions are often a bit too extreme for my tastes, but his approach is the bigger problem. Whether it's his infamous joke about shooting up school board meetings or calling soldiers murderers, I really don't think this is the right kind of attention.
Pro: He really is a party insider and knows how to work with the infrastructure we have to push attention down and aim for ballot access. He'd be a good campaign manager.

I know very little of Ms. Ardeleanu. I do know she refers to herself as running for "Healer in Chief" and brings up "love" a lot. Someone I respect referred to her as "our Marianne Williamson".
Honestly, I'm open to it. If I get signals that she's running a serious, robust campaign I'll give her a serious consideration. But until then I'm not going to rack my brain over what her nomination would look like.
Today I was listening to episode 16 of My Brother, My Brother and Me, originally released on Aug 2, 2010.
While answering a question about superstitiously avoiding air travel on the eleventh of September, one brother predicts that March 12, 2020 is the day "you really gotta watch out for", because he has "a bad feeling".
Here's hoping, for his sake, no giant terrorist attack happens on that day.
the McElroy Number is how many degrees of separation your podcast is from a McElroy. if you yourself are a Prime McElroy your number is 0; if you are a Secondary McElroy or you have had a Prime McElroy on your podcast, your number is 1; if you then go guest on another podcast, their number is now 2, and so forth
He's out-of-place. He's a country-club Republican. And his insurgency is weak. Sure he's got money, but the one powerful tactic can buy you he's not doing. He doesn't know how to work this process, and hasn't gotten buy-in from someone who can guide him (the way MW & LC have).
And he seems to be getting annoyed. I expect him to drop out and knock the dust off his sandals on teh way out.

Erk Gerhardt & Kenneth Blevins
2fer 'cause these guys are an afterthought. They don't have any support and aren't gaining any because they're bad at this, though they both seem friendly enough.
Pro: EG appears to be actually libertarian and DB is kind of pretty.
Con: They're unknown and bad at campaigning.

To me, on paper Max looks great. I have a lot in common with him ideologically (though as a matter of degrees I'm more pro-immigration). And he has a voting record in office, both holding office as a Libertarian and running as a Libertarian. And his record is good. He even sponsored legislation to use Approval Voting in his state, which I support strongly.
But he's *such* an asshole to everyone. It's not constructive at all. He even attacked me personally. WTF
I have always been suspicious of the “radio edit” and then in the same day I heard original full length versions of Simple Minds’s “Don’t You Forget About Me” and Steve Winwood’s “Higher Love” and lemme tell you the people who do these edits are not only geniuses but saints. Those are both AMAZING songs rendered absolute shit by unchecked indulgence.

Just a heads up: the market for Joe Biden winning the NH primary is selling for 1. People are so confident he'll win, they're trying to bet with 99-to-1 odds.
