The Democrats have fallen so far that a Hispanic-sounding nickname is enough to make someone a viable candidate for the nomination.

a Hispanic-sounding nickname
is enough to make a white Judge's son, that married into a Billionaire's family, a viable candidate!

If Bernie Sanders wanted it enough he could use a nick name like Robert Francis O'Rourke did. Bernie could go for the black vote by using Sambo Sanders. There's a fried chicken angle in there some place.

Perfect post title.

I suspect the real notion of a Beto campaign isn't for him to be the top of the ticket, but to put on a showing to get a VP gig and, in the eyes of Democrat donors, win Texas for them.

And such an impressive resume, too.

Don't know about anybody else, but I'm going to try to scrub that nickname from my vocabulary. If Bobby was good enough for his college days, it's good enough for me. And it's "Kennedy-esque," isn't it?

Agree that he's already running. It's not like he has any other job to do, after all.

Hey at least Beto didn't kill anyone when he ran from the scene of an accident.....

It'd be nice if news articles/opinion pieces/blog posts would discuss any legislative achievements Beto has.

You know he'a been a congressman, right?

So a failed candidate for Senator, with a fake Mexican first name, is their best shot?

Bring it on.

"Sambo Sanders"

Hilarious.

On the one hand, he’s the white Barack Obama. On the other hand, nobody would have voted for Obama if he weren’t black.

Is Beto more like Ted Kennedy or John Kerry?

I vote for gold digger as his new nickname.
