Lis Smith assures us that there are 'dozens of Mayor Petes out there' if Democrats would just look for them

Lis Smith, senior communications adviser to Pete Buttigieg, has a book coming out, and that’s why she’s doing interviews with outlets like Politico. Most of the interview is about her relationship with “Mayor Pete,” and Smith tells Politico that there are “dozens of Mayor Petes out there” — the problem is that the Democratic Party just isn’t looking for them. We’re not sure what anybody sees in Buttigieg, but back in 2021 we heard about the Democrats’ “nuclear option”: nominate Kamala Harris for the Supreme Court to get her out of the way, and put in Buttigieg as a replacement, as someone who actually had a chance of being elected. We’ve heard a lot of buzz about Buttigieg being the most likely replacement if Joe Biden decides not to run again.

Smith tells Politico:

From the second I met Pete, I knew that there was something special about him. He was a once-in-a-generation talent, someone who perfectly met the moment. When I met him was right after Trump won the election, and Democrats are running around with their hair on fire — for good reason. And you had Democrats out there saying, “when they go low, we kick them in the face,” and engaging in all this over-the-top rhetoric.

Pete was completely different. A lot of people thought that to beat Trump, you had to be Trump. And what Pete understood, and why I believed in him, was that to beat Trump, we didn’t need to be him. We needed to be the antidote to him. And there was not a better antidote to Trump than Pete — in terms of style, in terms of life experience, and in terms of his worldview.

It was a long shot. Everyone thought I was crazy. But it was one of those moments where I had to go with my gut.

A once-in-a-generation talent? That must explain his massive success as a presidential candidate. All the guy does is tell us to buy electric cars.

Someone recently asserted that everyone in the Biden administration is a complete failure, and we honestly can’t think of any examples to disprove that.
