Not show his age? He'd have to look like Joan Rivers. I think Cuban would destroy Trump. Beat him at his own game.

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.

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!

Sara Palin was in the VP slot.
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.

After Hillary,the Dems first qualification for a candidate will be clean hands.Those 2 are far away from that as you can get especially Dandy Andy.

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.

Could never vote for him - Starbucks coffee is worse than p***.
I bought one cup in my lifetime and after one sip, threw it out the car window on the Thruway enroute to Toga. Took $30 worth of beer to get the taste out of my mouth. And a quart of spring water.

I'm with you. And I'm a big coffee drinker...but Starbucks does nothing for me.
