And I will tell you this, there is a complete lack of empathy in this guy in the White House right now.

And I will bring that to you. If you have trouble stretching your paycheck to pay for that rent, I know you, and I will fight for you. If you have trouble deciding if you’re going pay for your child care or your long-term care, I know you, and I will fight for you. If you have trouble figuring out if you’re going to fill your refrigerator or fill your prescription drug, I know you, and I will fight for you.– Senator Amy Klobuchar

According to a year’s worth of qualitative data collected by YouGov, Klobuchar is perceived as not only “intelligent,” “competent” and “reliable,” but also “likable” and “committed.” This combination is no small feat. Only former vice president Joe Biden and former South Bend, Ind., mayor Pete Buttigieg also are thought to be both “intelligent” and “likable,” but neither is considered “competent” or “reliable.” Even though Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) are perceived as “intelligent,” neither is seen as “likable.” While both senators also are believed to be candidates who will “stand up for ordinary people,” neither is viewed as “committed.”

BETTENDORF, Iowa — . . . . Supporters of the Minnesota senator credit her rise to her ability to connect with the electorate, which Minnesota Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan referred to in an interview as her “superpower.”

Prior to Saturday morning’s event, Val Horvat, 62, a native of Bettendorf and self-described moderate, indicated that her decision of who to caucus for was down to Klobuchar and Buttigieg. However, Klobuchar sealed the deal with her appearance.

“She’s so intelligent. She’s got that experience, she’s got the Washington experience. She’s working across the aisle to get things done there. She can do that,” Horvat said. “I think that’s key … She’s a bulldog, but she’s kind and she gets things done.”

Here’s What Amy Klobuchar Is Saying in Iowa, and Why – The New York Times

And when people give you an opportunity, whether it’s a grandparent, or a parent, whether it’s a teacher, whether it is a neighbor, or whether it is someone you work with, you do not go into the world with a sense of entitlement. You go into the world with a sense of obligation. An obligation to bring people with you instead of pushing them out. An obligation to bring people with you instead of hoarding it all yourself. – Senator Amy Klobuchar

Bill Press: Don’t forget about Amy | TheHill

From the initial 24 wannabes to the five survivors who will take the stage Jan. 14 in Des Moines, Iowa, for the next debate: former Vice President Joe Biden, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), former South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.).

Today, 28 days before the Iowa caucuses, nobody knows who the Democratic nominee will be. It won’t be Cory Booker, Marianne Williamson, Tom Steyer, Andrew Yang or Tulsi Gabbard. It won’t be outlier Michael Bloomberg, either. It’s a safe bet it’ll be one of the final five — which has everybody guessing.
