Apparently Beto ain’t on their approved candidate list.

Beto's excellent adventure drips with white male privilege

Imagine this: A 46-year-old former congresswoman and mother of three, who just lost a Senate bid to one of the most despised incumbents, sets off on a road trip adventure to clear her head.

Like a first-year college student, she pontificates on whether the Constitution is still a thing that matters after all these many years.
And then she writes a stream of consciousness diary entry, where she is all in her sad and confused feelings, over ... something

This is Beto O'Rourke's navel-gazing, self-involved, rollout of a possible rollout of a possible presidential campaign. Oprah Winfrey's couch is next.
This could never, ever be a woman.

His privilege even allows him to turn a loss to the most despised candidate of the cycle into a launching pad for a White House run.


Best I can make out Beto is guilty of 2 offenses. 1)he’s a man. 2)he’s white.
