    Not yet.

    I think the better question would be to ask : will there be any liberals running in the democrat party? I'd much rather have the choice to vote for a liberal rather than what the democrat party has been spewing out under the D umbrella.

    I am old enough to remember when people said McCain was too old to be president.  He died at 81.

    Given the current Democrat field, I might actually end up voting for Trump.

    You're not the first person I have seen/heard say this.  I know a decent amount of people who voted for gary johnson or left the ballot blank last election  saying they will vote for trump if certain dem candidates win the primary.  

    It will be interesting how the "moderate" (I use that term loosely) dems do once they announce they are running. If it is biden by himself, I see him winning since the socialists will cannibalize the vote.  If there are several "moderate" dems, then the race will get very interesting.

    There is a reason why his assassin has not been charged.

    Of all elections the dems should be able to shine in, it seems like it would be this one.  Instead, they're putting out candidate - so far at least - that appear to have no shot.

    Shouldn't you solve the Pizzagate case first?

    I felt like the last election should have been a slam dunk...

    Lets see where the money goes.  The DNC is only going to fund one of these guys.  It will be Biden if jumps in.  As for the rest, they wont see a dime or any support from the DNC.

    So some of the Bernie Bros are calling him "Daddy". And that's all I have to say about it right about now.

    Zwick! Where are you?

    Klobuchar is in and she is an otherwise normal Dem Senator from the Midwest who might have a shot at winning Iowa giving her a path to the nod. Plus she's mean to snowflakes so perfect choice.

    I think Kamala Harris is sadly the favorite at this point - our party is more obsessed with getting a woman + person of color than somone who can win and I fear Trump will absolutely crush her for fucking a married man twice her age to get her start in politics. 

    Trump won 53% of White Women over Hillary - someone who many a lot of women felt sorry for due to Hill's shitty treatment of her. A recipe for Dems to be crying on the day after election day wondering what happened
