So who do you think will get the Dem nomination?

There are a lot of longshots, but I really don't think it will be Bernie or Uncle Joe. They almost can't nominate an old white guy - that's too easy a target for Trump to pick off.

Currently they're all writing their own opposition campaign ads; as in, their behavior is being documented and will be whittled down to a :30 ad on why we shouldn't vote for them, paid for by Trump 2020, "I'm President Trump and I approve this message". I don't see any way for any of them to get out of it.

The Kavanaugh thing will hurt them.
The Jussie Smollett thing will hurt them.
"Russian Collusion" will hurt them.

They also have to get through the primary debates and rip each other to shreds, which I cannot wait for!

So who has been quietest, and therefore made themselves a smaller target? Because that's who the Dems are going to have to go with.

The bigger question to me is who'll be left standing after Iowa and New Hampshire (and to a lesser extent Nevada and South Carolina).

My guess is Uncle Joe, Kamala, and Bernie. Cory and Robert Francis are maybes.

No one will have the requisite number of delegates at the convention and they will draft Hillary.

LOL at Hogan, but I get it.

This is an interesting question because it is so far out. No one had Trump winning the republican nomination when there was what 14? 15?

My bet is they will go with dependable Uncle Joe who unfortunately may use his wife's and sons death to his benefit. I see him distancing himself from the greatest (and only) Muslim President ever to help his cause. He will become the stabilizing force for the party. I also see him negotiating behind the scenes to include one of the others as his running mate to get the support of the far far leftist. (Gillibrand or Klobuchar to get the Ladies votes? or Castro/Beto to get the Hispanic vote)

Now to be honest, I hope it is Kamila or Bernie. Trump in a landslide.

I still think Trump's biggest fear is not the Democrats, it is another third (or fourth in this case) party candidate like an independent Kasich.

Hopefully I am not foolish, but Hillary is politically dead.

Booker, Harris and Gabbard will make noise early but will fade.

Kamala Harris. Hands down. The country, as a whole, may not get behind her, but the Dems will and will hope the country does too.

Beto - ahem, Robert Francis O'Rourke - as V.P. to balance the ticket (black-ish/white, female/male-ish, immigrant child/wanna be immigrant, California/Texas, sex gold-digger/DUI dirt eater, Michelle Obama channeler/Ted Kennedy channeler, etc. & so forth).

--- End of line (MCP)

Mooch, 2020.

At this time I am going to go with Kamilla Harris. She is what they are looking for, a black woman who will win California and New York, hands down.
Forget her past and Willie Brown. Sex doesn't enter into the equation any longer.
Clinton and Hillary's and Trumps sexual romps have made any sexual histories ineffective.

The better question is: who cares?

The ruling class will always get their way. Whatever the letter behind their name, they will work to denigrate the opposing letter-behind-the-name. They will continue to divide the people of this great nation (which has always been great).

They will continue to manufacture crises, which will serve to divide and conquer the people. The demonrats will continue paint the repugs as fascists/nazis and socialists and commies the repugs will call the demonrats.

And the middle class gets smaller as the bell curve seems like it wants to invert.

Accordingly, we continue to vote for the lesser of two evils, which is still a march towards evil. Lucid, cogent, and concise liberty-minded posters and people like Chris will be marginalized and ridiculed. And large swaths of the population will wonder why things never change.

I don't know. It seems like Kamala Harris is going to give it a good run, but I really don't think she's all that bright, to be honest.

I can't see Hillary going quietly into the night - I expect her to pop back up sometime.

My bigger concern is who is going to fill the Trump shoes after 2024. Will Crenshaw be eligible?
