I am really disappointed with the lack of political diversity of the hosts. Ross is not well representing Conservative thought. He's a Moderate at best. You need a decent Conservative for a true Argument. This program is more of a Liberal/Leftist jam echo chamber. 😞

Barack Obama didn't make a special appeal to black voters. he ran as himself. similarly, Buttigieg should continue being himself, running for reasons based on what he believes. I'm a black voters and I see him and like him already. I like beer and wine.... it's the content of platform and the character of the candidate that persuades me and wins my vote.

A mayor can't be Prez?!?! But a failed businessman, misogynist, misanthrope has and is. Of all the candidates, PB is by far the smartest.
