Younger eyes

The night time earlier than Tremendous Tuesday in early March, I took my then-7-year-old daughter with me to East Los Angeles for an Elizabeth Warren marketing campaign rally I used to be masking. For months, my daughter had listened to me describe scenes and politics she didn’t actually perceive. By then, it was clear that Senator Warren, the final lady standing, wouldn’t achieve getting the Democratic nomination.

My daughter was largely in awe of my pals working for the tv networks, as they stood within the stands with their cameras and laptops. That press corps was largely younger ladies, who have been exceedingly beneficiant to a second grader. The night time was a second for her to witness historical past, and ladies’s roles in it.

Exhausting loss

In February, I used to be in a New Hampshire ballroom with Andrew Yang, the long-shot candidate I had been masking for months, when he announced that he was dropping out of the Democratic primary. You possibly can really feel the room deflate as quickly as he mentioned the phrases.

Quickly after he exited the stage, I met Gene Bishop, an 81-year-old New Hampshire voter who instructed me he had by no means contributed to or canvassed for a politician earlier than he started supporting Mr. Yang. “I simply can’t imagine that it’s over,” Mr. Bishop mentioned, his courageous face melting away. Then, to my shock, he started to cry. It’s straightforward to get jaded about politicians. However my transient interview with Mr. Bishop has caught with me. — Matt Stevens
