I would vote for him for POTUS.
So would I, but I'm not a primary voter so I'll never get the chance. He's certainly not my first choice and other than being a nice, well spoken, white christian queer he's got nothing really to bring to the table.
I was talking about Sherrod Brown, sorry for the confusion.
I really do like Pete Buttigieg but like you, I am imagining the Middle East literally exploding in outrage. The moment he would try to attend a meeting there, it is likely the Saudi clerics would issue a fatwah to assassinate the queer infidel abomination, ditto for Putin's Russia, where it is rumored that "no gay people even exist".
Ditto for assassination attempts...must do American Christians a favor by eliminating gay cancer upon the White House - - see Vlad for details.
