When I first heard that someone named Pete Buttigieg (pronounced Buddha Judge), a popular Mayor of South Bend, Indiana as well as an Afghanistan war veteran specializing in intel, a 37-year-old openly gay and married to his husband, I was skeptical, to say the very least. That was until this incredibly intelligent, incredibly articulate, courageous, and honest young man appeared on "The Rachel Maddow Show" and absolutely flabbergasted me! Mayor Pete speaks approximately seven languages, plays concert piano, and has a loving relationship with his male spouse. He has outlined his policy proposals with clarity, and if you want to watch Mayor Pete's official announcement with three well-defined principles: FREEDOM, SECURITY, and DEMOCRACY.
I'm really leaning towards backing Senator Kamala Harris (she is impressive), but Mayor Pete is quite appealing.
