Pete Buttigieg has decided he wants to spend more time with his….family. Consequently he will not be continuing his run for the presidency of the United States.
Nobody, I mean no-body drops out two days before Super Tuesday. It doesn’t matter how little money you have left. There is always a chance the election day miracle will occur. And if it does the money problem is immediately self correcting.
Besides with only two days before the election you can’t even get your name off the ballot in a lot of places.
So why quite now?
Because Little Pete has made a deal.
Normally dropping out for a promise of the VP slot wouldn’t be all that tempting but consider. Both of his potential buyers were recently arguing over how many heart attacks the other had had. Normally, VP is a sucky job where you call your boss every morning to find out if he’s feeling well. If the answer is yes, you say, “shit!” And hang up.
But in the case of being Biden and Bernie’s VP there is a pretty good chance that the Secret Service will be telling him one day that he has to get to the White House immediately and that the Chief Justice will be waiting for him.
So who did he make a deal with?
Honestly it comes down to who is he sucking the votes off of. *
I think the answer is Bernie. Take a look at Iowa, he actually beat Sanders there. He already has quite a few delegates he can commit.
We shall know shorty one way or another. Stay tuned.
*You all have filthy minds.
