I think it's too soon for Michelle. If there ever was going to be a female President, I'd like to see Ivanka [But she's probably too young to be the first]... Make no doubt, it will be a woman though - They are going to run the same tactics of this election, with a less divisive female.

I'm not sure who will get the nomination, four years is a long time, but I'm looking forward to the internal conflict facing the left. On the one hand, they will all have better jobs, all be earning more money but on the other hand... Muh' Democrats!
 
I think the Dems may ask Kamala Harris to run in 2020 or 2024. She's black and Indian and just won a seat in the Senate.

Article from a year ago:

Is Kamala Harris the next Barack Obama?

California Attorney General Kamala Harris, on paper, is about everything the Democrats want these days.

At 50, she's relatively young compared with other national Democrats. And as a multiracial (half-black and half-Indian) woman, she embodies several parts of the coalition of the ascendant, the voting bloc that was so important to President Obama's rise.

Her resume, as partially described in her Senate announcement, is a mix of things conservatives love (fighting crime), and things progressives love (equal rights). She also brings a record of fighting and winning against big banks that will please the Warren wing of the party.

All of this is why she has been dubbed by some as the "female Obama."

Kamala Harris would get demolished by Trump head to head. She's a dyed in the wool San Francisco liberal who's already done a great job playing identity politics in CA. Granted, she's now won two statewide elections in California, so I could see why the Demsnwould look ok to her.

But I'm talking Reagan-Mondale level of beatdown. And I'd love to see it.

Elizabeth Warren is a real contender. Was correct and ahead of the curve on our last economic crisis. However, I think the Dems might be burned on women for a while. They thought Hillary would be their next Obama and didn't realize old women were not perceived the same way as powerful men.

She needs to keep her distance from the Dems. She can position herself as a stealth operative and build up her profile as an agent of change. She has a mix of conservative and progressive directions which makes me suspect that she is a real and normal American. She is a Dem because it was politically viable for her and America only has two choices

America has 5 fractured political positions that are morphed into two parties I don't think she is on the script as the rest of her hack party mates (I could be wrong).

Right now only dudes in the pipeline for Dems are Booker and Castro. Dems got nobody else left. Warren damaged her brand stumping and boosting for Hillary.

Dems are bottomed out. just like the Conservatives here it will take them 6-8 years to rebuild. If Trump approaches Regan level of leadership he will get 3 terms for his faction/base.

This is where fresh blood is going to come from. You are going to have stealth agents creeping up on both sides of the aisle.

I got your person right here:

Congresslut Tulsi Gabbard.



She is going to run for Senate against Mazie Hirono in 2018, then vacate and go straight for president. She has stars in her eyes. You watch.

Normally, I'd support her just for her Samoan heritage, but Hawaii politicians take corruption seriously. Watch out.

EDIT: After I wrote this I look up in the thread and see somebody else knows about Tulsi.

Aloha!

Nope. Libs are going to go for a billionaire dark horse like Trump and try and make it work for them. They will fail because they will pick a dolt like Zuckerberg or Sheryl Sandberg.
 
Our Frog Prince will see a second term. This train has no breaks.

He will be even harder to beat in 2020 after he has made good on every single part of his campaign policies & then some. I can't wait to watch the next 100 days.
 
They can always try Pelosi, She'll only be 80 by then. She's about the only big name dems have left. Obama fucked their party royally and they haven't fully realized it yet.

No. Mark Cuban. They'll think they'll get more Latino votes because he has a rather significant name.

EDIT: DAMN YOU DamienCasanova ARE YOU FUCKING MIND MELDING WITH ME OR SOMETHING? :D
