Following yesterday’s disappointing performance in the Democrats’ South Carolina Presidential Primary, Pete Buttigieg is dropping out of the race. With his exit from the race, pundits expect so-called moderates to consolidate around Joe Biden’s suddenly revived campaign. Whether that happens in reality, that’s another story.

Buttigieg had been scheduled to headline a rally in Dallas, Texas on Sunday night. The charter plane has been rerouted to South Bend, Ind., where Buttigieg will announce that he is dropping out, Fox News has learned.

A campaign aide told Fox News that Buttigieg wants to unite the party. Hours earlier, speaking to NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” Buttigieg vowed that “we’ll be assessing at every turn not only what the right answer is for the campaign, but making sure that every step we take is in the best interest of the party and that goal of making sure we defeat Donald Trump — because our country can’t take four more years of this.”

I agree with Buttigieg. We can’t stand 4 more years of energy independence, super-low unemployment, highlighted by the lowest minority unemployment in this nation’s history, and rising wages. We can’t stand another 4 years of a president who puts America, not the Democrats’ special interests, first.

I’ll miss Buttigieg’s holier-than-thou attitude and his willingness to talk over people at debates. Buttigieg’s civility will be sorely missed now that he’s officially dropping out. Here’s one of those Buttigieg civility lessons:

Seriously, Buttigieg’s ego was overwhelming. He simply wasn’t likable.

    The video you post is a Comcast – NBC hit piece against Bernie, not about the little mayor at all. It is a pro-Biden hit piece. Comcast has its dog in the hunt. If you were to believe them, the Russians have two dogs in the hunt. Each frontrunner of each party. TV talking heads doing what the network boss ordered is not worth the time it took to view it. Tomorrow counts, that video, no; it’s worth zippo.
