There Are Over A Dozen Democrats Considering Running Against Trump In 2020

Excerpt:

With the midterm elections only two months away and the 2020 presidential election just over two years away, many Democrats are already eyeing a run to challenge President Trump. Here is a list of several people who have expressed interest in potentially running.

POLITICIANS:

Joe Biden: The former vice president has not declared whether or not he’s going to run for president. He previously ran two unsuccessful presidential campaigns in 1988 and 2008. Trump has stated on multiple occasions that he would love to run against Biden.

Cory Booker: TheNew Jersey senator is a popular name for the Democrats especially following his antics during the SCOTUS hearings last week. Sen. John Cornyn called Booker out for his presidential aspirations while he was grandstanding.

Jerry Brown: The California governor’s name has been thrown around recently and he has not refuted any of the rumors that he’d try to gain the nomination.

Julian Castro: The former San Antonio mayor and secretary of Housing and Urban Development for the Obama administration has said he’s interested in running, according to Houston Public Media.

John Delaney: The Maryland representative is actually the only Democrat to officially declare his presidential candidacy.

Eric Garcetti: The Los Angeles mayor has said that he’ll make an official decision about a run in early 2019.

Kamala Harris: The California senator is another Democratic Senator with presidential aspirations. She recently made headlines for her questioning of SCOTUS nominee Brett Kavanaugh.

John Hickenlooper: The former Denver mayor and current Colorado governor did not rule out a potential run in an interview last month.

Eric Holder: The former attorney general told Stephen Colbert that he was contemplating a run for president during an interview on “The Late Show” in July.

Jay Inslee: The governor from Washington recently stated what qualities the Democratic nominee should possess. According to Axios, he has mentioned how climate change should be a staple of the nominee’s platform — and that’s a part of his platform.

John Kerry: The former Secretary of State didn’t rule out a run in an interview with CBS last week. He has been very critical of President Trump.

Terry McAuliffe: The former Virginia governor is allegedly “seriously” considering a run in 2020, according to The Hill.

The party is still operating on identity politics, as you can easily see from their official platform. That is why they nominated Hillary Clinton in spite of her serious weaknesses as a candidate. They figured that having elected and re-elected The First Black President™ they could succeed him with The First Female President™. Hence, their nominee in the 2020 election will be non-white or female or both.

Bring on the circular firing squad. About time the Democrats signed up to play that game for a change.

In 1996 Republicans thought they had a chance to win the big office. B.J. Bill's known treatment of woman, his weakness on defense and terrorism and more. The belief was that his personal character and scandals would be enough for people to turn away from him. The problem for the G.O.P. was in fact that the economy was doing well. Fast forward 22-24 years and we have a president who has committed no offense in office, has a strong economy, AND the support of both the rank and file Military, Police as well as a host of other groups Clinton did in fact not have. Sure there are the radicals on both the street and even in the halls of Government. But, they do not speak for the vast majority. People decide how they vote based on their own situation.
Are you doing better? Are you doing worse? About the same? That's first and foremost. History has proven the economy is the single largest deciding factor. If it is still strong in 2020 it's a done deal.

True, but it was his privates that got him trouble in the first place. Most people vote based on their situation and who they think will either improve it, or at least not make it worse. Personally I do think Trump is a bit of sleeze in some ways, BUT, you can't argue with results. And, in the real world that's what matters. Not so different than having a Boss or coworker who does their job well, but is banging everything on two legs they can get their hands on. Are they breaking any laws or rules? And, is the job at least getting done or done well. VS someone who may be Saint X personally but can't even hold a candle in regards to performance. Who would you want to be in charge of the company? Tough choice, but like I said results matter. No results means no paycheck.

A veritable freak show of mental illness and liars on parade.

Trump will have a cake walk come 2020.

Absolutely right, especially when you're talking about people who become president. I've dealt with and kept a lot of people in business who were very hard to get along with as long as they did their jobs very, very well. Didn't always like it, but the bottom line was, get the damn job done. Some, with certain peccadilloes, I kept a closer eye on ethically, but the important thing was did they do the job. Hell, to many people I was one of those pesky types, not because of banging everything in a skirt (sad to say, sniff, woe was me) but because I was prickly and mission oriented. As for Presidents, let's look at, oh, say, JFK. Oh, it was so wonderful, he was so dreamy, it was Camelot!!! And now? We know just how incompetent and sexually, well, deviant he actually was. Sadly a lot of this goes with the territory, anyone who runs for president has their share of sociopathic and narcissistic personality traits, it takes that to win, you just have to judge them on what they actually accomplish.
