In a text to supporters, Pete Buttigieg’s campaign is touting New York Times polling that shows Bernie Sanders trailing Donald Trump in a general election matchup, calling it, “a risk we can't take.”

Quoted @daveweigel

People on Twitter don’t believe this, because it’s so nasty all the time, but the hardest punch thrown at Sanders in Iowa this cycle was anti-Medicare-for-all advertising that 1) didn’t mention him and 2) was just as much about attacking Warren. https://twitter.com/rubycramer/status/1221077778587684867 …

The toughest punches Sanders took in the debates were from the 1% undercards in July. When Buttigieg decided to get combative in October, he went after Warren. Bernie has benefited from a Trump-esque disbelief among many that he could possibly be the nominee.

"We need more than plans and proposals. We need someone who can actually get them passed," Biden says. Points out that he got Brady Bill passed along with an assault weapons ban, says "some others" voted against

the barely veiled swipes at Sanders on guns continue, though Biden declined to elaborate on his view of Bernie's record on guns when I asked him about this on Wednesday >

Do you think you could ever achieve such success that you would no longer worry about whether other people might be even more successful and better-connected? A week in Davos suggests the answer: No, you couldn’t.

BREAKING NEWS: "Starting on July 1 in the U.S. and Europe we are not going to take a company public unless there is at least one diverse board candidate, with a focus on women," says @GoldmanSachs CEO David Solomon.

BREAKING NEWS: "Starting on July 1 in the U.S. and Europe we are not going to take a company public unless there is at least one diverse board candidate, with a focus on women," says @GoldmanSachs CEO David Solomon.

Earlier at Davos, David Solomon said Goldman would not "draw a line" and stop raising money for fossil fuel companies. So, coal companies with all-male boards? No dice. Coal companies with one "diverse" board member. No problem.
