    As a spin off from @Maisie 's thread. Who are the top contenders and who do you think would be a good President for 2020?

    Off the top of my head I'd like to see Bloomberg make a run.

    I would like to see him run as well of course he would never be elected. He’s a NYC Jew. Could you imagine Oprah and Bloomberg on same ticket. Lol could you imagine how few votes they’d get. Sad but true.

    I don't; not yet. I think we'll have to see how the mid-terms shape up. If Democrats do well, then they can have a say in the legislative agenda instead of just reacting to the Republicans. Then it's more likely that someone will emerge as a candidate.

    Personally, I like what I've seen from Chris Murphy and Jeff Merkley, and it'd be great to have someone like Kamala Harris or Tammy Duckworth as VP (or vice versa). I love Elizabeth Warren, but she'll be 70 in 2020 and we really need some younger, more diverse blood in the seat. Also like Kristen Gillibrand, maybe with someone like Joaquin Castro as veep.

    I really love Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris.

    Like many, I am waiting until the midterms are over to see what happens.

    My son and I have been speculating that Trump won’t run for a second term. He will tell the people that he has had the most successful presidency in history. He will say he’s accomplished more than any other president in half the time and there is nothing more for him to do, so he won’t be running for a second term. Then there will really be some fun at the polls in 2020.

    Either that or he is arrogant enough that he will run again. He seems to be grooming his daughter to run one day....

    Do you think a 3rd party candidate could ever win the presidential election? A poll from this past summer shows that the majority of democrats don’t feel either party represents them well.


    https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/jun/20/most-dems-would-consider-voting-third-party-poll/


    Here’s hoping the mid-terms will bring forth some excellent candidate options.

    Missy, the Washington Times is a very conservative newspaper and I wouldn't believe any poll they conduct on anything, much less what Democrats think.

    Thanks Rainwood. I had no clue about the Washington Times. But yeah I guess I am dreaming we will have some amazing candidates for the democratic party. Really hoping someone fresh and qualified and intelligent and compassionate and fair and good will come onto the scene or perhaps that person is already here and I don't know about it. I am hoping hard and praying in a non religious way because you know who cannot be elected again. He just cannot. :pray:

    I really, really love Joe Biden but I wonder about the age factor. I also love Cory Booker and Kamala Harris. There are others, too but those are who stand out to me right now.

    The D party should nominate Adam Schiff in 2020.:clap: I'm sure he can convince most americans to vote for him instead of Trump.

    Cory Booker, Kamala Harris and Kirsten Gillibrand. Maybe Joe Biden. I think Bernie might try.
    Michelle Obama might - only if the chances of the above will look bleak (quite possible).

    Why can't we have a woman in politics with the oratorial skills of Liz Warren and the looks of Tulsi Gabbard? (Sigh). She would have the chance to beat Trump.

    Love Booker, Harris, Joe Kennedy, Duckworth. All of them are great, but my guess is that Kamala Harris won't be quite ready in 2020. She'd be a great VP though, and then she could run after. I adore Joe Biden, but like others worry about age.

    I love Elizabeth Warren and always have, so I'd be happy to see her on any ticket!

    Trump would eat her up alive. EW's chance of beating Trump are slim and none!

    Sadly, yes. Although I love her and think that she could rip him into pieces in debates. But yes, her chances of being elected are low.

    Here is one problem with Clinton in 2016... (I never paid attention to her emails and think that other allegations are nonsense).

    Biden did not run in 2016. Warren did not run. No one tried. I think they were afraid of the Clintons. And this, sadly, is something I hold against Hillary.

    Biden did have the chance in 2016. Very solid one. Maybe Liz had a chance as VP.

    Yes!, IMO, Biden would have beaten Trump. I'm shock like everyone else on earth that Trump won. :o

    There is not one of any listed that I would vote for. Probably the only dem I would ever vote for is Joe Manchin.

    No one needs to vote for Democrats if he does not want to, and Manchin may switch parties. His daughter Heather Bresch's controversy with epi pen was bad enough. A kid died because of peanut butter allergy and inability to afford epi pen.

    And before that time there was another one with her MBA.

    http://fortune.com/2016/08/26/epipen-mylan-ceo-interview-heather-bresch-mba/

    "It was during this odyssey that the Heather Bresch situation surfaced. The October 2007 news release announcing Bresch’s promotion [to COO] declared that she had received an MBA from West Virginia University; by December, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that WVU had altered her transcripts and awarded her degree retroactively. Joe Manchin by then was West Virginia’s governor, and the implication of cronyism tainted Bresch just as she was emerging as a corporate leader….A subsequent investigation by the school stripped Bresch of her degree. Its 95-page report concluded that administrators had given Bresch grades “pulled from thin air” because of her “high profile”—but it didn’t directly fault either father or daughter."

    (Is it that difficult to even get an MBA? Why does anyone need to alter transcripts for it?)
