It's Super Tuesday! Vote Your Conscience! (But Maybe Have a Talk with Your Conscience First)

It is Super Tuesday, folks, when 14 states will help to determine the Democratic nominee and hopefully the next President of the United States. It’s voting day, and I honestly don’t have a lot to say about it. Last night, Klobuchar, Buttigieg, and our old friend Beto O’Rourke all came together to endorse and rally support for Joe Biden in Texas, as the moderates seek to unify behind one candidate (and further blunt the efforts of Michael Bloomberg). Afterward, someone at Reuters did a poor job with this headline:

Ha! Meanwhile, I’ll ignore the fact that Marianne Williamson was on CNN to support Bernie Sanders last night (come on Bern!), and instead focus on Mark Ruffalo’s endorsement.

I can make a good case against both Bernie or Biden, and I can make a good case for both Bernie and Biden, and after a nominee is picked, that’s exactly what I’m going to do.

Today, however, do yourself a favor and vote for Elizabeth Warren. You like Bernie’s progressive policies? Elizabeth Warren has that! You like Biden’s unifying abilities? Elizabeth Warren has that! She’s smarter and better than all of us.

Here’s a weird wrinkle that most people don’t know about in the way that primary elections work: If enough people vote for someone, they will win! Who knows? Maybe Elizabeth Warren could take advantage of that loophole! But, you know: You all should vote conscience. I trust you! But if your conscience is telling you not to vote for Elizabeth Warren, you should have a talk with your conscience. Sort it out! Have a chat. Have coffee with your conscience and show your conscience that Elizabeth Warren has a plan, and it’s a really good one!

Good luck today, folks. May the candidate of your choosing win. And if she doesn’t, may the candidate best positioned to beat Donald Trump in the fall do so! Also, don’t vote for Bloomberg.
