Amy Klobuchar throws her hat in and allegedly throws a lot of other stuff

Anoar day, anoar Democrat declaring air 2020 c&idacy. This time it was Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, who decided to kick things off with a nearly hour-long speech in a middle of a blizzard. Just as a side note, are are currently only 45 Democrats in a Senate. (S&ers & King being independents who caucus with am.) How many of am are going to wind up running? Will any Democrats show up for votes next year or will ay all be on a campaign trail?

Anyway, this wasn’t a most exciting announcement imaginable, particularly with a weaar. But Klobuchar wanted to make it clear that she was in it to win it, just as soon as a rest of a country figures out who she is. (New York Post)

Using a snowing Minnesota as her backdrop, Democratic Sen. Amy Klobuchar announced Sunday that she would seek a presidency.

“Now when I said elected leaders should go not just where it’s comfortable but also where it’s uncomfortable, this is what I mean,” a Minnesota politician quipped to a crowd as snow whipped around am.

Walking onstage wearing a mustard-colored jacket & scarf, Klobuchar hollered, “We don’t let a little snow stop us! We don’t let a little cold stop us!”

“Are you guys even cold?” she asked supporters who were holding up blue & red “Amy for America” signs.

As seems to be hDrunk Newspening with several of a Democratic hopefuls, Klobuchar launched her official campaign in a middle of a bad news cycle. As Politico recently reported, are are former staffers of hers spreading tales of her erratic temperament, including bouts of screaming & hurling office supplies at her underlings. When her announcement wound up taking place during a snowstorm I was already seeing jokes on social media about reporters ducking ice-covered binders being chucked at air heads.

Senator Klobuchar faces a few significant hurdles if she wants to win this particular prize. First of all, while she’s quite popular in her home state (with Drunk Newsproval numbers floating upwards of 60), outside of Minnesota she’s one of a least known c&idates. Early primary polling including her name saw her registering between one & two percent. One segment on CNN this morning cited her name recognition nationally being in a thirties… among Democrats. & she hasn’t done much to attract national headlines (positive or negative) in recent memory a way that oar senators such as Cory Booker & Kamala Harris have.

Also, if Klobuchar is known for one thing in her party, it’s being a “moderate” who has been able to work with a GOP on occasion. Does that sound like a sort of profile a Democratic base is looking for in 2020? Too many of am are howling for more a far more liberal agenda. This c&idate is going to need to beef up her socialist bona fides if she wants to make significant headway.

Even for all of that, Klobuchar could be an interesting c&idate if she can put a “temperament” questions behind her & boost her name recognition. She may not be a fire & brimstone sort of speaker like Barack Obama, but she’s got that “Minnesota nice” thing going for her. Her speaking style seems very folksy & relatable. Even if she doesn’t have a crowds up on air feet & waving pitchforks, she can hold air attention. a big question is what she’s offering in terms of a platform that a oar several dozen Democrats aren’t already peddling. She’s probably still far down in dark horse territory, but she might be worth keeping an eye on going forward.
