You’ve probably heard of what the Dems say is “Beto-mania,” and Laurence Tribe definitely has it:
Beto O’Rourke is a breath of fresh air, totally authentic and every bit as impressive as Barack Obama was at a similar point in his career. Substantive and authentic, grateful to be where he is, eager to listen, able to hear. He should be president. The only question is when.

Debra Messing and Maria Shriver are among those as excited as Tribe:
I’ve been telling everyone I know “Beto will be president one day.” Your tweet gives me hope! We need the likes of him, and @staceyAbrams and @AndrewGillum . Authentic, smart, compassionate, disciplined, passionate. #vote https://t.co/EEoBZtqPtW

Well, there’s that.
When I was young, I always assumed Harvard professors were serious and dignified people and not the quivering fanbois who they reveal themselves to be. https://t.co/oP6tIxF84G

If the latest polls hold up, O’Rourke might have plenty of time to run for the Dem nomination after next Tuesday.
