I don't think he has the leadership experience to be an effective president. He does have charisma, but I was curious as to see so much glee in him dropping out of the race. I don't think he had much of a shot at president. As someone who doesn't live in Texas, my knowledge of him was very limited until the Senate race, but I was impressed with him visiting every county in Texas and the snowstorm road trip with Republican Will Hurd.
I agree with him about needing major gun reform. Personal protection handguns and low capacity rifles are one thing, but high capacity rifles put more people at risk than the people they keep safe.
Nobody in Texas knew him, he was a junior congressman from El Paso. The DNC establishment decided to back him, he had the cool factor for the younger voters and got the votes during the anti-Trump/Russian Collusion upswell.
The guy is a freakin' flake.
He got the typical, "I'm hot" treatment from Oprah, Hollywood and the MSM until he opened his pie hole too much.
Once the shine wore off, his Hollywood shooting star faded, his lack of substance didn't resonate with the American people.
So, he pressed his liberal boundaries with some bad, political advice from someone and now Beto signs are no longer lingering in the yards of Austinites along with "Global Warming is Science" signs.
