    ' I'm just born to be in it'... ' god wanted me to run' … ' I feel called to do this'
    Quotes like that make me cringe uncontrollably.
    Not feeling much about holding his announcement until the same day this issue dropped.
    I still don't know much about him as a candidate, guess I should read this!

    So sad that after that cover of Vanity FAIL, Annie has to do sh*t like the Biebers for Vogue and then this

    Around the same time that the cover came out he texted a local Texas tv station saying he's running in 2020. So kinda a high-low announcement with VF and an El Paso tv station getting the news. The writer said he got the interview by walking up to Beto's house and introducing himself.

    I wish Stacey Abrams or Kamala Harris were on the cover, but I guess that's asking too much...

    Wow, lol, at least there's a plan B for Beto if his political career doesn't take off. Insta thirst trap.

    Hype train has left the station! Leibovitz's photography actually makes sense here.

    He's a very interesting choice for the Democratic party though, enough to sway the Republicans with his Texas/God/good ol' boy roots, enough to sway the millennials with his teenage hacker and punk past, and nice to see the Democrats not try to push someone just because they are a minority (woman/racially/sexually whatever) -- just because Obama was a good candidate, doens't mean there is a need to always check a box.

    He's like the Justin Theroux of political candidates.

    Worked for France.

    Not really, he has a lower approval rating than Trump, Protestors have literally erected a giant Guillotine in his honour with his party's name on it in central Paris.

    I meant the getting into office part. Not commenting on whether he's a success or not.

    I'm more interested in the sales pitch of the candidate than the politics part.

    Politics interests me very little.

    When female candidates like Elizabeth Warren or Kamala Harris are busy rolling out potential policies after potential policies, he just had to be photographed by Leibovitz and say “born to be in it” to be appreciated by the masses. This is truly the sad era of personality over substance. Across the board from fashion to art to politics. No wonder mediocrity prevails.
