    Elizabeth Warren could probably make a strong run in the Primaries. She's the more populist candidate.

    On the other side you have Corey Booker who is the much more corporate friendly candidate. There's no doubt he could raise tons of money.

    People always drag out the big names that have been around forever but Bill Clinton/Obama were not exactly unknowns but not front runners.

    Edit: Of course this is if Hillary doesn't run.

    I guessed John Kerry. He had run before and even as the underdog, and still won the nomination and almost beat the incumbent wartime President in the 2004 election. And SINCE then, he had served 8 more years in the Senate, and 4 of those years he spent as the Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, and has since been the U.S. Secretary of State - which if he does run, then realistically he would hold that position for about 2 years. Secretary of State is a nonpolitical type of position so he would have to step down some time in 2015, to participate in the Democratic Primary Debates.

    I'm not a Democrat but just speaking from logical observation. John Kerry is also a member of Skull & Bones. Beware those secret societies.

    I think Elizabeth Warren should be on that list. She will bring big enemies to the Republican camp however. She has become a thorn in the side of the Big Money status quo and that can really put a damper on dollar support. I did not vote for Obama. I am a Green, but I would vote for Warren. Also, there should always be an against option in any race, but then you kinda lose control.

    I love it when people say this. The reality is, Obama became viewed as a potential front runner right after the 2004 Democratic National Convention.

    I like Elizabeth Warren; John Kerry is the "bigger" name .
    Caroline Kennedy ?
    Julian Castro ?
    If the conservatives allow, the ACA must be successful.

    That all said, it dawned on me that if she doesn't run in 2016 the democrats are likely up a creek with no paddle. Who do you think would be the democrat nominee if she decides not to run?
    Well we can only hope not. **** Bush's and Clinton's, had enough of both. We aren't a dynasty here, I mean we hope not.
