Great idea, Indivisible folks.
You've fashioned a clear, easy to understand, transparent scorecard for the Democratic presidential contenders that rates them on three criteria:
Policy Platform: Indivisibles want a candidate who is committed to enacting bold, popular, progressive policies across a range of areas, including immigration, climate, economic justice, health care, and other critical policy areas.
Day-One Democracy Agenda: None of the policy reforms we want to see in 2021 are possible without a democracy that responds to the people. Indivisibles want a candidate who is committed first and foremost to ambitious reforms to save our democracy.
Building Grassroots Power: Indivisibles know that national change won’t come from any one leader - it will take a movement. Indivisibles want a candidate who is committed to building grassroots power, as demonstrated by their fundraising, campaign strategy and management, support for other progressive candidates, and their engagement with Indivisible groups.
I like Warren a lot, so I was pleased to see this result. However, my wife favors Buttigieg, and I can understand why she does. Buttigieg strikes us as the most compelling speaker, since what he says seems to come from the heart, not from canned campaign lines.
However, along with most progressives I look upon the Democratic presidential candidates through the lens of who could stand on a debate stage with Trump and kick his butt (metaphorically... though I'd enjoy seeing a literal butt-kicking).
To me, Warren would fare best going toe-to-toe with Trump. She's composed, fearless, and has an in-depth understanding of every topic that might come up.
Of course, it could be argued that the candidates who do worse on the Indivisible scorecard would fare better in the general election, since their moderation would appeal to a broader spectrum of voters.
I can resonate with that argument, since more than anything else, I want a Democratic candidate who will win, even if their policy positions aren't perfectly progressive.
On days that my psyche is in that frame of mind, I look upon Joe Biden and Amy Klobuchar with considerable fondness. They'd stand a good chance of doing well in the mid-west "rust belt" states that are key to winning the 2020 election.
Indivisible has a good rejoinder to my a moderate would be best theory, though. This is a screenshot from their Rubric document.
