    I've been most impressed with Senator Warner and Representative Schiff. They aren't stage thrillers, I know, but they've handled themselves very well throughout this investigation process (and, to be frank, I think we could use a quiet Presidency after this crap filled whirlwind). I think for a presidential candidate, I would be fine with Gilibrand or Harris.

    We need DEM candidates that can successfully navigate the Electoral Map.
    she's a lightweight in terms of her actual accomplishments but quota lovers dreams. A woman a year behind me in college is being mentioned. I wasn't all that impressed with her in college since she seemed incurious about politics then but she is a labor populist without all the baggage of Lieyawatha and has far more actual intelligence than quota-woman

    Amy Klobuchar of Wisconsin.

    Minnesota, brother, and up for one of two Senate elections next year in MN. MN, another so-called blue state HRC only won by 44,000; 4 DEM CDs in trouble; term-limited DEM Gov. Dayton; both chambers GOP, one by one member, a crucial state next year.

    Sen. Klobuchar would sit in a good position for 2020. She'll be hard for the GOP to slut-shame, along with the rest of their smear tactics. If Sen. Brown wins in your OH next year, he becomes great VP fodder.

    Right now, a Baker/Sandoval ticket is my favorite, two excellent and popular governors who know wtf they're doing, which we'll sorely need beyond all of our comprehensions in 2021 ...

    All woman ticket?

    Sure.

    Tulsi Gabbard, Elizabeth Warren, Nina Turner in any combination.

    Enough of these 'centrist' good cop corporate sellouts and establishment darlings; if we go that way, then we have truly learned nothing from the loss of the Blue Wall and Dem electoral failure in general. Centrism and third way Dems have been prominent since Bill Clinton, and, paired with an overemphasis on social justice issues (which are important but cannot crowd out more substantive policy, particularly on matters of the economy), have presided over electoral disaster for our party since the time of Obama's initial election (who, at his most popular in 2008, ran as an economic populist with fresh ideas in the face of the Great Recession, even if he ultimately proved otherwise).

    Voting for anyone based on gender or skin color is about as smart an idea as dancing with the devil on a pale moon night. How about in 2020 we actually get someone in charge based on actual character, intelligence, and a willingness to do what is right for the Country instead of what is "right" for themselves?

    My IL-16 CD has a Bannon/Ryan proxy primary, as I live in deep Reagan DEM country. GOP Rep. Kinzinger, for whom I'll cross over to vote. IL--17, also won by trump, has a very strong DEM Congresswoman in Cheri Bustos, my kind of Blue Dog, rising star.

    And now I believe we're seeing the Yellow Dogs rise from the ashes. Sen. Jones won't be the last. Yet GOPs are clearly on the rise in the Northeast, especially with governors ...
    Dont tell anyone but I'm not actually from Earth. Sex, skin color, hair style, music preference, over/under for TP are all irrelevant to me when voting for someone. What counts is what they stand for and if they can be believed (unfortunately for the 2nd part we are dealing with politicians so its on a scale)

    So far, the election of Sen. Jones has signaled a slight return to issues and civility in the long run, at odds certainly with McConnell's 'long game' of hypocricy at every turn ...

    The only two names that might get the official DNC stamp of approval are Clinton and Warren and both of them are political liabilities. I doubt that you'll see a female DNC candidate for a couple of election cycles. There may some "pretty young thing" that the DNC will get politically hot and bothered over, but unless a female version of Obama (unknown, but puts on the right front and does exactly what the DNC wants) shows up, I doubt that we'll see a female Dem. candidate for while.

    I'd love to Condi run for POTUS, but she's seems very happy at her current position and has stated that she isn't interested in running. I'd love it if she changed her mind, but I'm certainly not holding my breath.
