Democratic Debate Open Thread

CNN is the host again. CNN has been the worst so far; see David Dayen’s review of the hot mess of a debate CNN hosted in July. And there will be more bodies on the stage this time than there were in July. I have little hope this won’t be another hot mess. But we’ll see.

The twelve participants will be Biden, Booker, Buttigieg, Castro, Gabbard, Harris, Klobuchar, O’Rourke, Sanders, Steyer (first appearance), Warren, and Yang.

My New Book

The book goes on sale November 12. I got my advance copies yesterday.

It has been just over three years since I first started writing this thing. It’s almost unreal to me that it’s really done. And the book got some great endorsements from some great Zen people.
