THE WASHINGTON POST - Things Stacey Abrams and Pete Buttigieg get that most other pols don’t - by Jennifer Rubin
“Whether or not you agree with the substance of what Buttigieg and Abrams are saying, they sure don’t sound like everyone else. Maybe less is more -- fewer histrionics, less hollering, less anger.”
THE DAILY BEAST - Robert De Niro on ‘Piece of Sh*t’ Trump, Whether the Mob Killed JFK, and Why Buttigieg Is ‘What We Need Now’
“But Buttigieg I like a lot. He’s got all the credentials—Rhodes Scholar, Afghanistan veteran—even though he’s young, and if he could get a chance it could be something special, I think. As a gay person, he’s someone who comes from a marginalized community, so people from other ethnic groups can identify with him, even if they’re not gay, because they know what it’s like. I think he’s the best for what we need now. I have friends who really like him a lot, as I do. With Obama, he had the middle name “Hussein” and a lot of things that people tried to use against him—including Trump with the whole stupid “birther” thing—and he went right through it. It could happen with Buttigieg.”
MOTHER JONES - Are the 2020 Democrats Really Ready for Hackers?
What’s it like to be responsible for the digital security of a presidential campaign? Ask Mick Baccio, the only publicly-designated chief information security officer on the staff of a 2020 candidate [Buttigieg]. “As far as I know, I’m the only CISO on any presidential campaign,” he said Thursday. “I have no idea why.”
POLITICO - Buttigieg’s CISO is ‘hard paranoid’
NY MAG - Could Pete Buttigieg Actually Become President?
“After he emerged unscathed from a presidential candidates’ debate in Atlanta, where many expected him to become a piñata, South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg is heading toward the holidays in an enviable position in Iowa and New Hampshire polls. He appears to have plenty of money, a solid organization, and a degree of popularity that is likely to improve as he becomes better known (according to Morning Consult, 39 percent of Democratic primary voters don’t know enough about him to form an opinion). And it’s entirely possible that six of his rivals will be spending crucial days leading up to the early-state contests stuck in Washington in an impeachment trial with constraints on their ability to speak freely.”
