    And so it begins...

    I created the 2016 thread, so here is the 2020 thread. I was trying to wait until 2019, but it seems like the candidates want to start campaigning again.

    Today marks the 'official' start when Elizabeth Warren decided to run in the Democratic primary. About 23 months before the election...

    Who do you think will do well? Who do you support? Who will you vote against? Who else do you think will run? Is it way too early to deal with this (yes)? What will the big issues be for you and for the country?

    Is there anybody else that I should add to the list that you want to see run for office?

    I think it’s going to get really weird.

    The next some months is something the historians will be writing about

    I had much more positive feelings toward Senator Warren a year ago than I do now.
    The election is the Democrats to lose. The way to lose will be by running on identity politics.

    My neighbor changed her Jeep's name to Elizabeth Warren.
    Because even though it's white, it says it's a Cherokee.:D

    If Trump somehow implodes and doesn't run, I would expect the Repubs to nominate Nikki Haley.

    Some updates to the list... Tom Steyer said he was not going to run. Tulsi Gabbard announced that she is running. And a few others have started talking about it. I added Nikki Haley, as if she ran the primary on the Republican side would get more interesting. I'm sure there is some 4-star general who could run and make this tougher for Trump to win the primary. Even if it is Pense that decides that he is done being the VP and wants to run, he could make things interesting in the GOP primary.

    Julian Castro, former mayor of San Antonio and Sec of HUD under Obama, announced today. He is an impressive guy and will have some appeal. His twin brother, Joaquín, is a congressman from Texas.

    But ultimately, I think candidates like Tulsi Gabbard and Castro are more realistically auditioning for VP consideration.

    Meanwhile....the first Democratic primary debate is only six months away. :eek:

    This is part of the USA's problem. You never stop campaigning.

    It didn't used to be this way, sure there were long campaigns prior to 2014-2016, but one thing Trump gets that the Democrats don't, is that you need to play to your base. Forget Iowa and New Hampshire, if you don't hold rallies and public meetings/town halls in NYC, Seattle, and San Francisco, you won't get a base of support to protect you from the on-line trolls and to persuade other people as to why they should vote for them. And the time to go to those places is a year before the primary and up to the primary.

    And who is the Democrat's base? I am not sure that is a clear group.
