If I'm making the optimistic case for Booker and Castro as candidates, it's that the issues they have in their records are the sort that the media is least likely to pummel them for. And likewise for O'Rourke and Buttigieg, who simply have short records and less to work with there. Unless they have some personal scandal, the media is perhaps less likely to shit on them.

Biden is also someone it seems the media is inclined to treat nicely, but I worry that something will come out about him, and no matter how in the tank they are, they can't totally dictate excitement if the base decides they don't like his record. As of now, he fits in that group as well.

I suppose Amy Klobuchar could be clean in that regard. But supposedly she has a reputation for treating her staff poorly. ETA: and like clockwork, yet another woman candidate can be dismissed as too damaged. Guess it'll have to be an inexperienced male politician.

(Forgot earlier: Sherrod Brown has old domestic abuse allegations.)
