By Election Day, ambitious Democrats had already resigned themselves to an eight-year wait for their chance in the national spotlight. Hillary Clinton was an overwhelming favorite against Donald Trump and, assuming she won, running a primary challenge against her in four years would be a fool’s errand. Then Clinton lost...the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 is now open. That opening is made all the more remarkable by the fact that there is simply no logical heir (or even heirs) to President Obama or Clinton — no obvious candidate waiting in the wings to step forward and rebuild the party. Vice President Biden appears to have decided that he is done running for office. As a two-time loser, Clinton is done, too. And after that, the bench is, well, pretty thin. Politics, of course, abhors a vacuum. So candidates will run. Here is a look at who they might be:

  • Sen. Cory Booker...
  • Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand...
  • Sen.-elect Kamala Harris...
  • Gov. John Hickenlooper...
  • Sen. Amy Klobuchar...
  • First lady Michelle Obama...

If it's either Gillibrand or Harris, it will be by far the hottest ever Presidential candidate.

I guess if we have a country that likes reality stars as President, picking folks based on looks was bound to come  next... There's going to be SOME moment when we might get back to mentioning something like issues again.  Maybe 2060?

After Senate tribute, Vice President Biden jokes about 2020 run. Or maybe he was serious?

Washington Post  - ‎5 hours ago‎
 
Vice President Biden made an emotional return to the Senate on Monday evening to preside over a key procedural vote on a sweeping medical research bill that includes $1.8 billion for the “cancer moonshot” he launched after his son Beau died of a brain tumor...

Alfi (THIALFI) said...

In 2020, he will be 78.

Trump is already 70, so he'll be 74 in  his reelection  bid.  (Not saying Biden will actually run, but we are talking a group on social security). BTW, Bernie Sanders is 75 right now.

Joe Biden: 'Do I regret not being president? Yes.'

Washington Post
A year and a half after giving up a 45-year-old dream to become president, Joe Biden told an audience on Friday that he could have beaten Donald Trump, had the death of his child not intervened...He had twice attempted to win the Democratic nomination before the 2016 race, which — he looked back up at Casey before answering the question — “I think I could have won.” He said he thought himself more qualified than any other candidate.
