That's about where I am, except I would vote for any of them with Biden and Bernie being the two I have the most reservations about, both due to age and Biden's "work with the Republicans" crap. I've seen that in action enough times to consider it just giving the private sector large enough payouts to get legislation passed that has a minute benefit for everyday Americans in it. In the past 30 years the worst legislation we have had passed was bipartisan. Crime bill, deregulation, Iraq War Authorization, all forms of corporate welfare, trade agreements, WTO, media consolidation, prescription drug legislation, war on drugs, Patriot Act, there's more but you get the gist.I honestly don't have a top three. The only ones I dislike and will not vote for in the primary are Gabbard, Sanders and Steyer.
I like a lot of Warren's policies but I think some are too pie-in-the-sky.
I just don't know yet.
I like Warren a lot because she's got plans instead of platitudes, but in reality, she won't be able to enact a whole lot of stuff. However I think we have to try on some issues to go as far left as possible, and if compromise comes in the form of lowering expectations without budget busting payoffs to the private sector and sacrificing quality of services for we the people, I'll be happy for that.
However, I consider both Klobuchar & Buttigieg moderates without a pro-big business agenda so I'd be fine with either or both on the ticket.
Harris is okay, but I worry about her tendency to appeal to people from the heart instead of her intellect but she'd be a great VP for any of the candidates, and most of the candidates I'd love to see in cabinet positions. Despite the fact we have almost too many people running this time, I see it as a good thing because then diversity in tone and policy leaves the door open to new ideas instead of the same old Democratic politics which I feel Hillary Clinton represented and many people are sick of.
