Democratic Nomination for 2020 - UPDATED to include those who have officially announced

Recommended Posts

Hillary is absolutely running again. 

 

The Dems are in a bind for 2020 because ALL of the energy will be behind the least electable candidates. The left is in no mood for a compromise candidate after the Hillary/Bernie debacle, and whoever they want will have no chance.  They would nominate a Ocasio-Cortez/Beto ticket if it was today.

 

They're general election awareness is not very good.

Sen. Ted Cruz's strategist nominates O'Rourke:

 

“The Democrats don’t have anybody like him. I’ve seen all of them. They don’t have anyone of his caliber on the national stage. I pray for the soul of anyone who has to run against him in Iowa in 453 days.”

— Ted Cruz’s strategist Jeff Roe, quoted by Politico, on Rep. Beto O’Rourke’s (D-TX) chances if he ran for president in 2020.

He sees what I see but the Left sees him as a loser. Good.

Biden is the only one I would consider turning to . I wish Democrats would have at least let Jim Webb speak. I was interested in what his ideas were but they never gave him a chance. 

Webb had his chance and blew it at the opening Democratic debate. He isn’t a realistic candidate for president.

I like Jim Webb a lot. And he was my uncle's company commander in Vietnam

I like him as well. Unfortunately when I tuned into the Democrat Debates he got to say maybe 2 sentences and then was shoved aside. I didn't get to hear enough of him to decide on him or not.

I guess there are still some people who are just hardcore Clinton fans. 

 

Idk if you recall the PUMAs in 2008 (party unity my ass) who actually voted McCain over Obama. 

 

12% is disturbingly high though!

By blew it, do you mean he didn't come out radical enough, offering free everything to everyone not white, and condemning all to bigot hell who disagree with him? Because I watched all debates from both parties and Webb barely got to speak.

I remember him talking about killing a man with a grenade in Vietnam. That’s when I know he wasn’t gonna make it. Lol. 

 

Also Lincoln Chaffe when he gave his lame excuse to justify a bad vote “it was my first vote.” 

 

2016 was a joke.

I think Biden would win. I'd certainly vote for him. Of course, I'd vote for anyone over Trump, but I'd like voting for Biden. 

 

I have no clue why anyone would think Beto would win a national race. Democrats need to make a big tent. "Progressives" are incredibly fickle. Put someone on the ticket who holds up a lot of traditional Democratic values and can win over the working class.

How does beto not fit that description?

It will sort itself out. 

 

Bill Clinton came out of nowhere to deny Bush a second term. Obama demolished Hillary when 2008 was seen as her turn. Hillary won nomination in 2016 because the deck was cleared and fucking Bernie sanders still took her down to the wire. Hillary can do and say what she wants but there is zero chance she is gojng to win the nomination.
