Who Would You Like To See Running In 2020

Recommended Posts

My guy, Al Frankenstein, held his hands in front of a woman’s breasts and almost certainly killed his chances. 

At this time I really don’t have anybody in mind who Is young enough to serve. 

I have been a fan of Biden since I first heard him explain the Iran situation when Carter was still President .  I think he really comprehends the Middle East but he has never lit up the electorate here at home and is now ancient. 

The POTUS election is hugely about celebrity and right now NO ONE is a celebrity but the guy in the White House. 

I am concerned Time is rapidly running out for ANY candidate to develop a sufficient following to unseat the sitting guy. 

 

Anyway.. just for grins, I will say Biden 

 

Who’s your “I wish he would announce right now and give it a go??”

Note: if you want the current guy to go for term two, lay out  your case . 

We agree on one thing, I would also prefer that to Pence.

Better choice than Trump:

Hunter S. Thompson

Opus & Bill

An Easter Cactus called "Elmer"

A pound of unsalted butter

Everybody in Ethiopia

The Giant Rat of Sumatra

 


Just off the top of my head.

Hickenlooper.

It's not that I necessarily like him, but rather that his appeal to the Millennials is intact.

And even he is a little on the old side. I suspect that our next president will be less than 40 years old, from the Democratic Party, and like Trump, he will have come into politics after a career in business. The age of career politicians is a little cooked, at least for one more President.

Also Frankenstein isn't done, I suspect that he'll back at some point.

All of them are at least as qualified as many previous candidates, they are capable managers with ability and ideas, and I’d like to hear their campaigns. It would be interesting and DT would be enraged 100% of the time... he’d probably blows gasket (if he hadn’t already resigned by then.)

On to reality though, I'm gussing it'll be Bernie V2.0 vs Biden in the septuagenarian 'cool grandpa' fight on the democrat side and "Trump vs Trump" in the septuagenarian "Angry Grandpa vs senility" fight on the other side where Trump shadowboxes against a hologram of speeches he's given in the past.   Biden V Trump in the finals and Biden gets the honor of being the oldest president ever.

Agreed.  Unfortunately, the fact that she is a Hindu (which, to many people, will be she is a foreigner) will not be an asset.

Maybe she'll be the 2nd name on a ticket headed by a player to be named later.

Defacto President Tulsi with a figurehead white  nursing home Grandpa President that can’t work the tv remote would be an electable solution.

Bernie’s Jewish heritage makes him as evil as a Hindu lady to many conservatives in the Midwest.   It would have to be Biden to gain the crossover bigot vote.

I could support Mueller - diametrically opposed to the outlook and approach that the others have espoused.   I'd be interested in hearing what platform Nikki Haley, Condoleeza Rice, Jeanne Shaheen, or Susan Collins would proffer.   Haven't given it much thought, actually, but there are several Governors who've done well for their states, I actually thought Kasich would have been a better nominee than Bush or Trump.

Kasich and Flake in the R primary? Flake has dropped a couple of hints about running.

If Biden gets in, his VP needs to be a viable candidate on his/her own because I think he would do 4 years and done.

In the name of all that is holy, please let us not have Hillary in there again.

* I don't care if Bozo the Clown, Hank the wino from behind the dumpster, and Pol Pot's corpse want to run as Rs, just having ANYONE primary Trump is worth watching.

How seriously do the Dems want to play the identity politics game?

Julian Castro; could put Texas in play. Kristen Gillibrand but since NY is already blue not much of an EV vote advantage. Tulsi Gabbard but she would need a major PR campaign to get known and actually add something to the ticket.

I'd like to see a 55 year old (or even younger) version of Joe Biden and a female VP.

I may - for the first time in my life - register as an R or a D, depending on which primary looks more interesting.

BTW - I miss the days when Rs wanted to keep Ds from giving the store away. Now the Rs want to give it away too, just to different people :rolleyes: Hey, wasn't this the cover story of the Tea Party, that no one else was paying attention to cash in and out?

Kasich should primary Trump in 2020. I highly doubt Trump will get renominated anyway, most likely because he will quit before 2020. If he seeks reelection, every leading R must be so sick of this buffoon that the party will start running Trump Who? ads.

For the unAmerican party Kamala Harris/Tulsi.

For the patriot party Jeff Flake, Lindsey Graham or Bob Corker.  Pick two.  It would be nice if there was no chance to win if you had the stink of Trump on you.  Still think at some point Americans will be as likely to say they were Trump supporters as a Frenchmen was to say he was pro Vichey ten years after WW2, even though there were shitloads of both.

What about the Republicans? Who should they nominate? I guess Pence would fall in line behind your “Patriot”, but who will represent Russian oligarchs and American racists?

Agreed. Rs could run Jesus H. Christ and it won't matter. Hillery could win easily. 

Lest we all forget,  Biden's a buffoon, a dumbass frat boy stuck in time. I'd druther have Mrs. Biden. Think of the crap she's put up with over the years.

"Biden's a buffoon,"

Other than the obvious partisan pandering of the above statement, I'm not so sure he's a buffoon.  People that have been in the same room with him say he's a great small room politician he just sometimes forgets that what works in the small room might not play well. The electorate just might be ready for someone actually sane and experienced in the big office. Putin might even want him in to keep the pot boiling for at least another year.

I think this question is premature, let's wait for the mid-terms and see how that shakes out.  The last thing I want to see again in my lifetime is all three branches under one party's control.  If the Dems get the House and/or Senate, i would have no trouble voting for a Kasich for Pres.  The best deal in the government is one where neither side is happy.  

Dems at the mid-terms need to foist a Presidential Candidate and get behind him/her from that day on.  Not 12 candidates, one if they want to build momentum going into 2020. 

The landscape will change dramatically on both sides when Trump leaves with his tail between his legs (and I'm sue it's a small tail).

I'd like to see two or preferably more viable candidates, who actually deserved the job.

I can see people who I think could fit that description on both sides, but none of them has a snowball's chance in hell.

In all truth, I think that I know a half dozen people who do nothing but go about their average everyday lives, who could do a better job of POTUS than Trump..... I'd almost include myself on that list, but I have this bad habit of going to bed too early, and waking up too late.

Viral photo captures VP Joe Biden in candid moment with homeless man outside Georgetown theater

The photo was taken Thursday evening outside the Georgetown AMC movietheater by Caleb Baca.

Biden was reportedly at the movies with his granddaughter, who was visiting him in town.

"I'm not exactly sure what he gave the homeless man, but he appeared to write something down on a piece of paper inside the movie theater, which he then proceeded to give the homeless man outside," Baca tells FOX 5.

The photo was shared on social media by D.C. Public Affairs consultant and businessman Paul Equale and has since gone viral -- with over 50,000 shares and over 70,000 likes on Facebook.

Equale wrote in his post of Baca's photo: "Joe Biden took his granddaughter to the movies in Georgetown last night.....on his way out he stopped to speak w/ a homeless man. A bystander took this candid shot. Character is about what you do when no one is watching."
