Democratic challengers for next year
« on: October 28, 2019, 10:42:17 PM »
So you all have your preferences of you like some/none and hope certain ones get in.  Just wondered what peoples views are.  Also the important, whoever does get picked, will you put a tick next to them, or 4 more years of the status quo

As of right now my top choice is Warren.  She was my top choice last time too so maybe I am biased.

At this point I do not want Sanders though I do admire him.  Buttligieg has really impressed.  Biden falls more into a do we have to go there category.

what Sssith said.

not sure there's anyone that identifies as republican around here any more.
Buttigieg on Trump: "It is the nature of grotesque things that you can't look away."  5/19/19

Warren. I've been on Team Warren for a long time.
Will take Sanders as a consolation prize.

After that it falls off. Booker and Harris maybe. Buttigieg is way down at the bottom just a step above Gabbard.

That said, I'd vote for a turnip if it had (D) next to it and the (R) was Trump or Pence.

who remembers Ficus for congress? https://www.democracynow.org/2000/6/7/ficus_for_congress

In some way you have the same type of issue the UK does with a series of winner take all elections vs a % of votes for the whole country really mattering.  Bring on popular vote = president!

I'm not super excited about any of them.  I don't really want Biden because he's like 100 and he seems half in the ground sometimes.  Warren or Sanders would be my top choices, but I really am scared people wouldn't vote for them and we'd be stuck with the big A-hole again.

I just want Trump to lose, and lose badly.

And now enter Bloomberg because more rich old white men is exactly what we wanted.

nm. thought he was launching a 3rd party bid. he's welcome to run for the primary. still think he's only doing it because he's scared of warren. so long as he doesn't split the anti-trump vote in the general election, i don't give a shit what he does.

If he decides to run as 3rd party, that's what will happen.
