This will probably be a wide open race with as many as 20 contenders. Who do you think will end up being the nominee.


My first pick is Joe Biden. (although I have a futures bet on Michelle 0bama)

You two both picked a white Christian male. The Democrats don't allow those people to be the nominee anymore. I am going with Senator Warren. A liberal woman from the northeast.

Won't be Hillary......

According to a new Gallup Poll measuring Clintonís favorability from Dec. 4 through Dec. 11, Clintonís rating is down 5 points since June -- to just 36 percent. Her unfavorable rating is at 61 percent, a new high.

I agree and we all know that.

BUT, I was hoping it will be Hillary!, act deux.

As some of us all knew in 2016, she is the easiest candidate for Trump to defeat, again.

If I had to bet right now, I still think Al Gore Jr. will be their No. 1 chance. If he declines, Kamala Harris and Cory Booker will slug it out for the racist Democrat Party nomination.

You hit the nail on the head. No more white men for awhile. As I posted a year ago, they'll run a minority or an ultra liberal female that isn't 90 years old, won't collapse on the streets of New York, and isn't lazy to the point of not caring to get on planes that travel to that pesky rust belt.

They know what works for them, what doesn't. If they can find someone less of a lightening rod than fauxcahontas, that person will be gifted the nomination via hook or crook.

I'm still predicting a dem victory in 2020. The press leading up to this next election will be even worse and slanted than what we saw a year ago. All tricks will be pulled and we will all be losers for it.

The nomination would likely be Joe Kennedy's for the taking, if he wanted it.

But he's very young, and seems more inclined to take his time..

This country had 56 consecutive presidential elections in which every major party candidate was a " white Christian male".So, what's your point?

And may I point out the three nominees who were lacking at least one of the WCM attributes in the last three elections all received more votes than their opponent.

It's the Republicans who don't allow women and racial minorities to be the nominee.Not then and not now.

Let's be real. Both parties readily accept both women and racial minorities. That's an unfair charge to both parties.

Nail meet hammer.

I have little doubt she'll be getting huge play.

If the Dems were smart, she would be their candidate for 2020. She checks off every box on the Dem political spectrum, and is by far one of the smartest Dems on the planet as she runs circles around Pelosi, Schumer, Warren, Franken, Perez, Ellison, and the rest of the entire party.

Smart, really? I only know what I see on Twitchy, but most of her policy pronouncements in the form of tweets seem to reveal a lack of understanding about essential governing principles. She would get the sympathetic treatment from the media, for sure, but that doesn't make her smart.

It could be fun to watch The Party try to appease all its factions while satisfying none of them...like herding cats! :jump:

Hillary got the slot by colluding with he DNC to keep Bernie, a white male out of it. Disgusting thing for the DNC to do to its member who supported him, but the DNC never gives a Kenyan Krap about its members.

Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz. The man's rhetoric has been having a distinctly "political" bent lately...even though he is reluctant to reveal his political aspirations for the future. Hey...after Donald Trump...WHY NOT? If we are looking for a leader with "penetrating vision", then Schultz qualifies nicely...IMO. :ThmbUp:

Most likely the person won't be white, biologically male, or cisgender. He, she, zie, sie, ey, ve, tey, or e (the list keeps growing) will probably claim to be Christian for political purposes, but actually hate Christianity and other religions that promote intrinsic standards of good and evil, moral and immoral etc...except Islam. Democrats can't say anything bad about Muslims for now because they are a minority in the US and will vote with them. It doesn't matter what they do or who they oppress overseas. The other exception is when they are promoting their own subjective views as being intrinsic truths and oppressing others for thinking otherwise.

I hope that narrows down the list of democrats a little.

I think she will need to become either a Senator or Governor to be put her in a better position to run for President.House of Reps isn't a good place to launch a Presedential bid, too tough to stand out from that crowded place.If you aren't Speaker of the House,nobody outside your district knows who you are.

I've seen her a couple of times on tv and she's pretty impressive.And only 36 so she has time on her side.

If I were assembling a draft list for people I thought would run deep into the primary season Iíd start with Kirsten Gillibrand.

She is obviously running. Her hard disconnect with former mentors Bill and Hillary along with calling for her friend Al Franken to resign over sexual harassment charges tells me she is reading the temperature of the party base and positioning herself for a run.

Iíd struggle whether to have Kamela Harris or Bernie Sanders as my 2nd pick but whomever I didnít choose would be my 3rd choice with Joe Biden 4th.

Cory Booker 5th. Sherrod Brown and Elizabeth Warren would have to be on the list somewhere.

As united as Democrats are in their opposition to Trump, they also face deep divisions over the direction of the party that arenít going to be easily papered over. A Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren isnít going to win but the question is how far they manage to drag the eventual nominee toward positions that arenít going to win a general election.

George H.W. Bush has big approval ratings his first 2 years in office.Then the economy soured and Bubba was elected.A lot can happen in a couple of years.

BUT you are correct, if the economy stays strong and there are no major issues confronting the country, then Trump should win a second term.In that case, just like Walter Mondale, Robert Dole or John McCain facing an unwinnable election, the Democratic nominee will be a consolation prize for one of the old soldiers like Al Gore or Joe Biden, kind of like a career achievement for party loyalty.The young guns will sit it out until 2024.
