A lot is being made of the fact that Beto O’Rourke is holding a rally Monday night right down the street from President Trump in El Paso, Texas.
Don’t get excited, though; O’Rourke is still being pretty emo and says he’ll announce when the time’s right for him. Maybe he needs to drive around a little more to get in the right headspace.
.@BetoORourke is not planning to declare a presidential bid in El Paso tonight as he speaks outside Trump's first campaign rally of the year, @CNN has learned. If he jumps into the 2020 race, as most friends anticipate he will, he intends to do so on his own timing and terms.

His friends anticipate he’ll jump into the race? Who knew he had friends? Still pretty emo, though: “I told you, Mom, I’ll declare when I’m ready! Now leave me alone!”
Tonight would be on his own terms and turf!

So that’s why he blew off the chance to declare when he had a massive audience on “Oprah”? And then he ended up asking her if she was thinking about running … bold move.
Who is trying to set timing and terms for Beto?

Yeah, who? Let’s doxx those suckers.
But seriously, if he has any campaign staff put together, they really ought to give him a little push: Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Tulsi Gabbard, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro … they’re already off and running. Not far, but running.
So tomorrow then?
