"So who's our 2020 candidate?"


          


Let's anoint someone.

Tell me about Kamala Harris. I'm out of touch with CA politics these days, but it seems like people have been talking about her. I mainly know her only from the Supreme Court buzz.

Who else will be a compelling party leader in 2020?

Liz Warren? She'll be 71 by then, but that's only a couple years older than Hillary is. She certainly seems like the person most capable of uniting the party as it stands right now.

or Bill Maher.

It's got to be some blowhard that we are at least somewhat embarrassed by.

But for real, the less political experience the better. The longer you've been in government, the more the opponent can point to what you did or didn't do. That's always bad.

As long as you can fall back on what you would have done, you will always have a winning position.
With that said, the DNC will probably push someone like Chuck Schumer

Apparently there's little correlation between experience and skill in being president.

https://fivethirtyeight.com/features/our-worst-presidents-came-in-with-a-lot-of-experience/

As bad of a candidate as Hillary was, there's no really knock in her resume, to me at least. But like the article mentions, very little of being president connects to political credibility.

Obamacare is the obvious example. Are they really gonna take away 20 million people's health insurance? Are they really gonna let insurers discriminate on pre-existing conditions again? Are they really gonna go back from a system where 25% premium increases are an election year scandal, to the old system where 50% increases were routine?

"Obamacare" is unpopular, but all the elements that make it up are hugely popular (the above), or necessary for holding it together (the mandate).

So now the Republicans need to contend with that. I'll be watching with popcorn.

In response to Reply # 45


          


is to just shuffle around the pieces on health care, leave us with a system that's functionally equivalent to Obamacare, but call it something new, and then take credit for it.

Since their supporters haven't been paying any attention to the actual plan they're opposing, I fear that might work.

Then *our* best option, I think, is that whenever premiums rise by 25% (even though they normally rose by more than that pre-Obamacare), we go apeshit crazy blaming "Trumpcare", and take it as an opportunity to argue for the public option.

Yes they will. Even though they lost the popular vote AND polling of people who did vote for Trump shows people don't want to lose their healthcare.

> Are they really
>gonna let insurers discriminate on pre-existing conditions
>again?
Yes.


>Are they really gonna go back from a system where 25%
>premium increases are an election year scandal, to the old
>system where 50% increases were routine?
Yes.

AND they'll have lower cost options that provide little value, and those options will quickly balloon to cost as much or more as Obamacare options while providing much less benefits.

Remember their actual real idea is this : When you get sick use the money you saved up to pay for it. When you are out of money then ask your church or family for help. Then let the market decide.

I AM NOT shitting you.

Indeed, with Republicans the Party of Reagan stuff was always more about image than reality. He raised taxes on net, tripled the national debt, and increased regulation, especially financial regulation.

With Obama, he serviced Big Banks, Big Insurance, Big Arms Dealers, and instigated many conflicts that continue to cause death. Of course he will be the perfect Reagan corollary. He will be known for helping the little person and bringing peace. Just like the Reagan myth, both parties will eat that shit up.

3rd times a charm, right?

She was the strongest candidate. Who could possibly be stronger if our best couldn't even beat Trump?

Seriously though, I like Tulsi Gabbard or Kshama Sawant.

Bottom line, let's make this decision on policy and winning strategies this time.

like a blind ballot. Then we could have 4 years to get as many votes for blue as possible.

wouldn't even need to know the candidate really. just vote Blue.

i keep going back to gavin newsom. he's basically kinfolk to gordon getty, who had long been grooming him for president before gavin fucked it up by violating the man code with a staffer's wife while mayor of SF.

but he's been publicly calculated in all but erasing it ever since.

acts presidential in every appearance.

kamala as VP would basically be a power-couple ticket.

When was the last time a White man won the DEMS an election?

Clinton: 60,571,914
Obama (2012): 65,915,795
vs.
Trump: 60,126,238
Romney (2012): 60,933,504


Hillary lost b/c millennials and minorities didn't want to come out and vote for her the same way they voted for Obama.

Selected a White man is going to re-create 2004 all over again.

He's in here hiding on some change the subject type sh!t.

This thread also represents the problems with Dems, day-dreaming about a candidate 4 years from now rather than thinking about what the party needs to do in the short term to change and lay the groundwork.


The Dems that are doodling Michelle's (lol!) or Powell's (smfh) name are an example of what is completely a$$-backwards about the party.

I may change my mind after the Governor's race to see how he handles himself..

but I have my doubts right now..

if you are literally a San Francisco liberal...you have to have a strong ability to communicate a message nationally and I'm not sure he can do that...

but we'll see

I think she's definitely viewed as "establishment politics."

Obviously it will be hard to find someone with experience who's qualified who *also* qualifies as "a true progressive" for the hardcore liberals, but maybe if it's just someone without Clinton's baggage, those folks will get on board. We absolutely, desperately need those folks in 2020.

And they love Obama, who's right in line with her on basically all policy issues.

I think it was other stuff that turned the 'progressives' against Hillary.

In part by being a more obvious heir to the Obama legacy.

My only concern with Biden was that there's a reason he got essentially no support in the 2008 primary. He's a little *too* folksy for a lot of people. He can fall into a trap where it's hard to take him seriously. And he's been a bit of a gaffe machine.

But Trump gets away with it better than Biden ever did. Biden is still enough of a politician that people expect him not to say stupid things. With Trump they get to blow it off with "He's not a politician!"

But yes, in retrospect, if we'd known the blue wall would crack, I agree Biden likely would have done better, especially in PA. But we can't pretend the Republicans wouldn't have still pulled out all the stops to paint him as an effete Delaware senator and "more of the same."

few things working against him....

The next Black man who runs for President will run in the shadow of Barack Obama.... Corey's temperament and communication is enthusiastic but it's going to fail in comparison to Obama....people are going to say he's "doing too much"...trying to hard...

plus Booker isn't a progressive.... he's far more a centrist and if he runs in the primary a progressive candidate is going to exploit some of his decisions...

He's not married..... that's a complete deal breaker.... his current girlfriend is a poet....it would be a good dynamic...but he's not married yet...

Can you imagine the optics of a Black woman debating a White man on a national stage? This country historically takes great joy in putting a "sassy/mouthy" sister in her place. Can you even imagine the kind of coddling and disarming she would have to do to even get a Primaries slot?

A strong/"powerful" Black man is generally more palatable than a BW. Just the other day the New York Times had a story on Michelle Obama, which the posted on Twitter with the caption " How @FLOTUS shed an angry black woman caricature and evolved into a political powerhouse". Speaks for itself.

What Black women can you think of that are lauded, or even tolerated on a grand scale by the general public for their ability to debate and/or offer biting opinions in mixed (non-black) company? They won't even have sisters on sports debate shows, outside of Jemele. And she's more often in a moderator role, which is usually the case for women of color in those settings.

Donna Brazile still has a job, and next up seem to be cut from the same cloth. These are the people who got washed in 2014 mid terms and lost the house, senate and presidency to a GOP led by Donald F-ing Trump.

DNC Like, look out, now we're ready to get serious!! Fuck outta here.

You still not over the fact that the country's too right wing for Bernie Sanders?

By the way, age was never my argument against Bernie in this cycle. But a 79 year old candidate? Come on.

All this time I just figured you were overly loyal

You and your GROUPTHINK leading up to this is who were (and apparently still are) delusional.

If you and your bosses can't learn from this, really look back at your mistakes, we are all doomed.

Your bosses crowned an unlikable candidate, with no message, and ran a horrible campaign.

Completely SHAMEFUL low turnout and your girl lost PENNSYLVANIA and MICHIGAN


And you are STILL barking down people and you got folks in here doodling names on their notebook for 2020.

Please tell the folks who pay you to focus on REBRANDING the party AS FOR THE PEOPLE (no, not saying socialist or left...JUST FOR THE PEOPLE.) and start planning for 2018.

Or are you guys all in a room together crying about Jill Stein?

Bernie's wife said stop spreading the rumors about him running again for president in 2020, he's tired of the bullshit he had to go thru the first time around, he's done, he rather run for his current seat a million times than go thru that shit with another racist candidate talking shit about everyone.

98. "Maybe someone from this list, "
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Sen. Cory Booker (New Jersey) Booker, 47, has a compelling background that includes rescuing a woman from a burning building and going out of his way as the Mayor of Newark to shovel a resident’s driveway after a snowstorm. Booker, who is up for Senate re-election in 2020, was reportedly on Clinton’s short list to be her running mate and has a reputation as a reformer. The Rhodes Scholar has a likable personality and will have plenty of experience by 2020.

Sen. Sherrod Brown (Ohio) Brown is another Democrat who leans left of the party. The raspy-voiced labor advocate isn’t talked about quite as much as Elizabeth Warren or Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders (who doesn’t make this list because of his age) but may be just as appealing to Democrats as either of them. There was some talk before the 2016 Democratic primary as to why progressives weren’t “begging him” to run. He's popular in Ohio, a crucial swing state.

Julian Castro (Texas) Castro, 42, received consideration over the summer to serve as Clinton's running mate. He has been the U.S. Secretary of Housing and Urban Development since 2014. As a Hispanic politician from Texas, he will have a good chance to rally a crucial voter demographic. The former San Antonio Mayor has an identical twin brother, Joaquin.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo (New York) Cuomo has tried to position himself as the face of progressive politics as the governor of New York State, endorsing a $15 minimum wage, gay marriage, among other measures. Still, he’s been criticized for economic and budget stances like cutting taxes for the wealthy, which may hurt his chances in a theoretical 2020 run.

Sen. Tim Kaine (Virginia) As Clinton's running mate, the former governor of Virginia has immediate name appeal and comes from a state that is pivotal for his presidential hopes. Kaine, 58, also speaks Spanish, which is important considering Latinos are still an important voter bloc and may be even more crucial in 2020. But Democrats may prefer a candidate with less political experience.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Massachusetts) Warren is commonly brought up as a strong candidate because she has relentlessly fought against Wall Street and has proven herself to be an effective campaigner this year, attacking Trump on behalf of Clinton. She’s beloved by the left, like Sanders, but at 71 years of age in 2020, would be the oldest elected president in history. Meanwhile, Massachusetts nominees have had poor success, with Michael Dukakis, John Kerry and Mitt Romney all falling short.

Apparently America doesn't consider "experience in politics" to be relevant... I wouldn't get bogged down in it. Find a face you can sell a "nice" anti-establishment protest message with to counter the only currently available protest vote being for a decidedly nasty bastard.

In response to Reply # 112


  

          

its just if the thought of the Daily Show during the most important election year was too much for him, then why would he want to be a post-Trump President? If he wanted to prevent this all he had to do was provide the same commentary he has for years with an objective view of the political process.

but that wouldn't bode well for Clinton, so we got Trevor Noah instead : \

One of the biggest reasons he stepped away is because all that bullshit drained him.

If you listen to him talk about spending a single day in the cesspool of Capital Hill with 9/11 first responders to help get their healthcare bill passed, he describes it as one of the most horrifying experiences of his life seeing how they were treated.

Look what that got us, it's too many issues with her and Stedman that would surface that would be her downfall.

Besides ever since she ended her show and focused on her own tv station, white women stopped caring for Oprah like that; shit most of them voted for trump, that should tell you something.

Just superficially she'd have the angle of leaving the DNC to support Bernie before this whole mess. Shows good judgment at the least.

Dude is doing a national tour this year, hitting every state and kissing babies. He was in Dallas on MLK day meeting with the police and cleaning up the hood.
He used to be atheist, but is now having a change of heart.
Facebook filed documents straightening out what would happen to his shares if he ran for office.

Yeah he running.

A few things excite me about it.

Kills Trump on so many levels. More Billions and More successful business-wise than him.

Yet he brings the things to the table that would make a rich business person attractive in the first place:

1. While Trump is still hustling for dough and I think there is a legitmate argument he is in bed with rush for investment opportunities, Zuck is really so rich he really doesn't need to do it for personal enrichment.

2. Zuck would be a true technocrat. Trump sold people on finding the best and the brightest to work in government, but he really just got a bunch of old white guys he owes favors to.

3. Youth. Media isn't really talking about it but it is time to take the government away from these 70 year olds.

I think he should grab an office in the mean time and prepare to run in 2024 at the latest. if an opportunity arose in 2020, he could jump on it but don't plan on it.

White people can help create independent black nations. They can encourage their homeboys to leave us the fuck alone!

Conscientious White people on the inside are the main ones who can influence the "savage whites" who say fuck the people just keep mining the earth, raping the planet, murdering and pillaging for green paper.

I never said white people are obsolete. I said Black people are equally as powerful.

Are you white? Were you offended?

he was my pick coming into this post, but thinking about it, i don't think he can sell to the whole country.

watching the "Oh STFU" reaction to Streep, even from people who aren't political, I think he kind of falls into that California, hollywood, elitist "let us tell you what's best for you", out of touch with actual people image

he has a shot at CA gov tho

Because of how anti Islamic they both are.

I'm not a single issue voter. But some people's views on single issues are enough for me to disqualify them.

362. "Assad isn't going to step down. What are our options?"
In response to Reply # 216


  

          

I saw this quote amongst the links above:

"I don't think Assad should be removed," she told CNN's Chris Cuomo in November. "If Assad is removed and overthrown, ISIS, al Qaeda, Al Nustra, these Islamic extremist groups will walk straight in and take over all of Syria . . . they will be even stronger."

She's not wrong about the second part (post-removal). What's your alternative option?


Peace,

Trump has lowered the bar.

All the former reservations about a candidate being too young, or too old, or too inexperienced, or too extreme are out the window.

my greatest fear was that her not challenging Hillary for the nomination would mean her chance would be gone...

I know her age would an issue....

but I still say today that she was/is the best presidential candidate for the Democrats...

its imperative that the next candidate be a champion of the progressive wing of the party

In response to Reply # 202


          

she said she doesn't want to be president and I believer her. Despite the cool house and secret service protection its kind of a shitty job. Senate is way easier but you still can have impact but at the same time still have somewhat of a semi-normal life. Not to mention the drama of going through a national election campaign. Some people just don't want to sign up for all that.

203. "she should have played Bernie to the left...."
In response to Reply # 200


  

          

Bernie got beat....

The DNC was questionable about him because he wasn't then...nor is he now an actual registered Democrat....

him not conceding that he lost and guiding his people towards supporting the candidate that would have avoided a crazy mf'er being the president...

the energy Bernie garnered in young voters was great....the progressives now deserve to lead the DNC...no question...

but as far as Bernie personally..... Elizabeth Warren didn't support him when doing so would have been detrimental to the effort to stop trump.....

there are a lot of people who should have done the same thing...

in hindsight she should have been the one to challenge Hillary.....she would have beaten Hilary and Trump..no question...

They hate Franken MORE than Clinton because of his books.

Note: I have contributed to Al Franken campaigns in the past and will continue to do so in the future. He'd get my vote.

Franken will be 69 in 2020 - which y'all said was too old for Hillary and almost too old for Bernie.

Edit: And you if haven't read his fictional book where he became president in 2000 you should. His inauguration speaks was crazier than even Trumps. It's one of the funniest audiobooks I have ever heard.

EVERY effort need to be focused on upheaval in 2 years, not 4

dems shoulda been out on saturday to point out who's up for the next election, where they stand, and who they will run to challenge them


tea party, (backed by billionaires and racism), went from grassroots ideology to whitehouse/congress control in 6 years



but...good strategy is not the left's strong suit.

i think a big piece of who should be president will be determined on who steps up and leads the next two years. Some candidates mentioned in this post have that opportunity, but i'm not ready to anoint anyone, that's for sure.

In the mean time we really need to take a look at the local and state races over the next few years if we want to start to reshape the direction of our government.

the country, specifically the Dems, take the opportunity appeal to progressives, or at least liberals, more

but per usual, the Dems will keep doing their status quo and stay a centrist party and try to shame progressives when they choose not to participate in the lesser of two evils

Here is the thing, I really think anyone can be a decent president IF they show some chops or aptitude for it in lower offices. Stuart Smiley is a great senator (and I don't think you need to go to Harvard to be a Senator).

So if either of these dudes ran for a lower office and did a great job, no reason in my mind why they couldn't be president some day.

prez.

been following gavin closely going back to when i living in SF and he was on the board of supervisors with boringly-wack-ass matt gonzalez.

if he hadn't violated the man code on a major stage, newsom would be far further along than just keeping a seat warm at lt. gov.

i think he'd come to the center just enough to snatch votes from middle 'murica, not to mention his wife, while a complete becky, is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet.

Dems could win 2020 pretty easily if they run a decent/diverse field of candidates, run a fair primary, and let actual voters decide who the nominee is.

That said, the conversation among the rank and file is always going on. The people who think a candidate is 'anointed' are usually the ones who just weren't paying attention in the off years. There's no reason we can't talk about candidates before the primaries are happening.

Gave a real inspiring speech. And inspiring and exciting people is like 75% of getting elected president.

Don't know much about him though, and that may be his biggest problem (or benefit?)

I don't know if being a relative unknown like Obama can work in this day and age

252. "Had me at "Mike Bloomberg's a fan""
In response to Reply # 249


          

Or, maybe before that when the author tried to convince us that meeting with James Carville, Donna Brazile, and Mary Matalin is just some regular folks, sittin' around and talkin' politics. Or later, when they revealed that his entire family is deeply entrenched in local politics.

So, pass.

He seems like a good dude, but the whole "I'm not the sort of person who runs for president" pretty neatly permits him to slide by without actually suggesting something that will improve the material lives of most Americans. And he's definitely not in a rush to provide an answer like that. So what makes him so good? A speech? The fact that he's from Louisiana? Because if the latter meant that he was able to deliver some Southern electoral college votes, maybe we should start putting that promise to use more locally. Louisiana has a pair of Republicans in the US Senate. I'm tired of seeing John Kennedy play the "I'm completely senile but I have opinions about grits" card on CNN, though he's not up until 2022. Luckily, Cassidy sucks too. And wikipedia says that he beat the other Landrieu so we can amuse ourselves with a revenge story.

It's two years away and the only thing at stake for guys like this is this nebulous idea of "viability". If he can't bring himself to suggest something concrete and radical to help people, then he should stick to making really good, and deeply needed speeches.

In response to Reply # 254


          

... constitutes an actual plan.

And it's not true that the folks who are trying to make themselves into contenders aren't engaging on specific policy. Gillibrand, Booker, and Harris have all been expressing their push left in the last year in terms of concrete proposals. They're all in the Senate, so I guess it's technically their job. But it's still something.

Besides those using it to discredit him as inexperienced.

He wasn't running on his record as a state senator. Or his 2 years as a US senator.

He ran on the idea of hope and potential. Themes that put him in the national eye with his DNC speech.
