Obama aides say Beto O'Rourke reminds them of the ex-president. Obama agrees.

Rep. Beto O'Rourke may have lost in Texas, but he's winning in Obamaland.

Aides to the former president and the man himself say O'Rourke's campaign against Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, gave them flashbacks to Obama's precocious political rise and has positioned the young white congressman as an early if unlikely heir to the first black president's "hope and change" mantle.

The Texas Senate race had an interesting dynamic.  You had a white guy pretending to be Hispanic in "Beto", and then you had a Hispanic guy pretending to be white in "Ted".  Neither is their real name.

Pretend is a weird word.  Name does not a person make.

Beto has used the name since birth and grew up in an area with a significant Hispanic community. 

Ted was born in Alberta and his mom is 3/4 Irish and 1/4 Italian.  He moved to Texas when he was 4 and attended private schools before going to Princeton. 

GWB had good support from Latino/Hispanic because he spoke Spanish and actually target Latino voters during his campaigns.

The late George HW Bush #41 also ran for US Senate to represent Texas and did not win just like Beto. Also if Beto won the Senate Seat he most likely would not run for President in 2020.

oh boy, can't wait for the bloodbath of the democratic primary!

Quote
Beto's excellent adventure drips with white male privilege

But O'Rourke, tall, handsome, white and male, has this latitude, to be and do anything. His privilege even allows him to turn a loss to the most despised candidate of the cycle into a launching pad for a White House run.

Stacey Abrams, a Yale-trained lawyer, couldn't do this.

O'Rourke is being criticized for his randomness. For his TMI'ing and for his "what do I want to do with my life" aimlessness.

But the fact that he knows he has the freedom to cast about as a campaign-in-waiting forms, shows how much of his political identity is predicated on being white and male.
