Here we go again. . .
Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet announced this morning that he, too, will be running for the 2020 Dem nomination for President of the United States:

And this is pretty much the reaction:

At least Sen. Bennet is the only one not totally cuckoo-pants. College costs money? Medicare-for-All isn’t doable? That should play well with the Dem base:
Bennet here makes explicit his opposition to Medicare For All and other progressive policy ideas: "I'm not going to pretend free college is the answer. I'm not gonna say there's a simple solution to a problem if I don't believe there is one…"

The debates will be an absolute clown show:
At this point it’s going to take 20 minutes just to introduce all the candidates at the start of a debate.

If every candidate got a 2-minute opening statement and 1-minute closing statement, the debate would now run over an hour without any actual questions asked. https://t.co/PnzyAaZhTT

It could get worse:
With Bennet in, Democrats are now only waiting on three additional candidates who are thinking about getting in the race: New York Mayor Bill de Blasio, Montana Gov. Steve Bullock and former Minority Leader of the Georgia House of Representatives Stacey Abrams.
