He's a millionaire currently without a political job. Hey, why the hell not run for president? Wife looked on adoringly during announcement, so she must be all in. Good luck to him. There is plenty of competition.

It's time to start thinning the herd. No, it isn't too early. No There isn't a lot of time. Unity has always been the lefts problem.
Unify, form a message and attack. You have a chance to retake the senate and the oval office.

Be careful what you wish for, Ms. Warren. The founders set up checks and balances for good reasons, and to remove them just because the last Democratic candidate's campaign didn't read the fine print is a poor excuse.

*****

In a crowded 2020 Democratic presidential field, Andrew Yang is trying to cut off his competition with a new policy: he’s anti-circumcision.

The 44-year-old entrepreneur from Schenectady, New York, told the Daily Beast that the practice of removing a newborn’s foreskin is “pushed on parents" and said the health benefits are “shaky.”

“I’m highly aligned with the intactivists,” Yang said. “History will prove them even more correct.”

If elected, Yang said he wouldn’t ban circumcision, but would “inform parents that it is entirely up to them whether their infant gets circumcised, and that there are costs and benefits either way.”

“The more choice we give parents, and the more we diminish the possible preconceptions or misinformation various parents are receiving, then the better off we’ll be as a society,” he told the Daily Beast.

To encourage SANE Non-Trump supporters, allow me to now explain a list of elements, that happened to all come together PERFECTLY in November 2016, to make possible Donald's upset victory, BUT WHICH, in 2020, WILL DEFINITELY NOT be Present to Help Donald AGAIN.

1. Trump's opponent won't be Clinton, the Democrat Presidential nominee that scored the lowest marks for her personal qualities that survey takers had ever measured in the almost 75 years of surveys gauging Public Opinion about Democrat Presidential Nominees.

2. Donald won't have his 2016 benefit of being able to yank his opponent around by a chain, due to the ability to loudly attack his rival for carelessly treating classified emails, anytime that Trump felt like ending some monotony, by again launching that attack.

3. Also, in 2020, Donald is very unlikely to benefit from millions of Bernie Sanders supporters staying home on election day after being angered after hacked DNC emails, spread all over the internet, informed Sanders fans, that the DNC had weighted the scales in Hillary's favor, during the Democratic primaries, which gave Bernie's rival an UNFAIR advantage.

4. In 2020, it's extremely doubtful that Trump will be helped again by an FBI Director's announcement, 11 days before the election, that the FBI is reopening a criminal probe of Trump's opponent, that just serves to remind many people why they had originally harbored some hesitations about supporting Trump's opponent, in the first place. For example, in 2016 I heard an African American man say that though he'd always voted Democratic, he couldn't vote for the 1st female Commander-in-Chief Nominee, as "She was reckless with our security!"

5. In 2020, Trump won't have the benefit of getting votes from many who basically didn't like his undignified, crude ways, in 2016, but then said to themselves, what the hell, why not try a non-politician businessman FOR ONCE. So they took a chance on Trump, only to find that, as President, Donald has put a number of wealthy cronies in his cabinet, who have ripped off taxpayers by living like kings, AT PUBLIC EXPENSE. Including rip-offs like 1 cabinet member using over $300,000 of public money on private jet travel in just 8 months, and another Trump cabinet member using $43,000 of tax money to pay for a private telephone booth for his office. Yup, many who thought Trump was worth a risk, don't feel that way anymore, because some of them HAVE TOLD ME they'd never vote for Trump again.

6. Finally, in 2020, Trump will be lacking what may have been his BIGGEST single advantage in 2016, which was the large amount of COMPLACENCY among 2016's Democrats. Because so many of the Dems in 2016 didn't believe it was that vital to get out and vote for Hillary because it seemed unbelievable that Americans could ever be low-class enough to turn over our country's highest office to a reality show host, and former beauty pageant owner, who our people had heard arrogantly boasting that he could grab women by the pussy, shortly after meeting them, and get away with it, because of the ladies being dazzled by Donald's "Star Power". And the people using the "locker room talk" excuse to defend Trump's pussy grabbing claim, seemed like a tiny, very low-class minority, because neither myself, nor any guy I know, has ever heard a man bragging in a locker room that he sexually assaults women by grabbing their pussies. Of course, about any red-blooded American guy has either made comments, or heard other guys make ones, like how cool it would be to be able to have a night in bed with the sexy blonde, in the pink bikini, who was just on the low diving board. But ANY guy who brags about grabbing women by the pussy, EVEN IF HE NEVER ACTUALLY DID IT, shows that he has a SICK LEVEL of DEEP DISRESPECT for women.

And Donald's obvious disrespect for women, MORE than anything else, accounted for my being shocked by his election win, because I honestly wouldn't have thought that America could be low-class enough to have that many men who share Trump's disrespect for women, combined with enough females who don't respect themselves, to enable those 2 groups to raise a MISOGYNIST asshole, such as Trump, up to becoming America's Chief Executive.

Of course, most of Trump's GENERALLY UNINFORMED male supporters, probably DON'T EVEN KNOW what a MISOGYNIST is. So it would be nice if those of them who are that ignorant would look up the word. But until then, suffice it to say that when the typical male Trump supporter stares into a mirror, a misogynist is exactly what he sees.

But since it was women who provided so much of the energy that swept the House away from Trump's party back in November, there's little doubt that millions of American women, who RESPECT THEMSELVES TOO MUCH to EVER support Trump, will be key to the Democrat Presidential candidate's victory, that we will all witness in 2020. Already, 2018 proved that many well educated Republican women of the suburbs (Along with some GOP men) have become totally turned off by Trump, and that's why they voted for Democrats while DIRECTLY DEFYING Donald's PLEAS to support HIS policies, by voting for the Republican candidates.

Yes, if Trump's ego would cause him to go ahead with the foolish effort of running in 2020, I'd actually prefer that the dozens of legal troubles headed Donald's way, will not prevent a 2020 Trump candidacy. Because Americans seeing Donald soundly defeated by 10 or 12 million votes is actually a better outcome for America, than our people seeing Trump forced from office, like Nixon was, due to Congress bringing a large pile of legal charges against Donald. Because so many of Trump's clueless zombies would ALWAYS BELIEVE that Donald was unfairly railroaded out of office, EVEN if a DOZEN very solid, evidence backed charges, had been leveled against Trump in Congress.

Anyway, with all of the unethical and/or illegal, Trump behavior that will be made public over the next 18 months, THAT WILL just make it QUITE EASY for ANY Democrat to beat Trump in a lopsided 2020 election.

I can just imagine the 2020 Presidential debates, right now, with the Democrat, in the first debate, turning toward Trump and asking "Mr Trump why have you always continued to conduct your life in such deeply unethical ways, such as defrauding Americans out of millions of dollars with your phony Trump University scheme?" That would be a GREAT MOMENT, INDEED!

(Hillary COULDN'T USE such a QUESTION in a DEBATE, because Donald wasn't FINALLY FORCED to pay $25 million to compensate some of his fraud victims, until several WEEKS AFTER 2016's election, when Trump SHOWED HIS OWN GUILT by PAYING OUT that LARGE SUM to BUY the SILENCE of people who he had defrauded, as he made his payment to BUY his out of court settlement. And as CHEAP as Donald Trump is KNOWN to be, if he had been innocent, there's NO WAY he would have paid 25 million bucks to settle just ONE of the lawsuits against his Trump University Scam. (That lawsuit, the first one that Donald has settled regarding Trump University, was brought against Trump by New York State, on behalf of a collection of people who Donald had DEFRAUDED with his scam.)

1. Trump's opponent will be a Democrat, which will suffice for a significant number of conservatives.

2. Trump will find an avenue of attack, even if that avenue seems absurd to those disinclined to listen to him.

3. It remains to be seen what the field looks like.

4. Agreed.

5. I do not expect to see much crossing of the partisan divide, as 'conservatives' and 'Fundamentalist Christians' have made their Faustian bargain already.

6. I'm not sure your analysis is valid. Clinton won the popular vote, after all. She lost in the Electoral College. That's bad management.

7. Again, Trumpism is well established, and many of the right's "Moral Majority" have proven willing to ignore Trump's immorality so long as their agenda is advanced. I don't expect that to change. Most of us hate being wrong, after all.

8. Trump won despite his moral failings being presented to the electorate. Conservatives will just tell themselves that God works in mysterious ways and vote for Trump again.

None of the above means Trump is assured of a another term. It just means that it would be foolish for Democrats to think they've got this in the bag.

After what I’ve read and seen so far, I’m backing Elizabeth Warren . People are underestimating her. When she’s in front of large crowds, she knows how to get them angry by stirring up their Trump-rage. And she’ll stand toe to toe with any other politician in a debate because she’s always prepared.

America wants a female prez, and it’s between her and Kamala. Warren already comes pre-vetted, and the worst they could find was the Native American thing, which is lame. She knows how to appeal to people emotionally that I think few other candidates are able to do. It’s early, but I say Elizabeth Warren will be the next President. Unless Mike Pence is our next President, because that could happen.

Hardware, it's not that I disagree with your analysis, but I think that the turnout for a Democratic Presidential candidate in the 2016 election was seriously short of what it should have been. For example, Hillary UNDERPERFORMED in drawing the votes of African Americans, which could be a result of the Russians that posed as Americans, who spread slanders of Mrs Clinton on the internet, which portrayed Hillary as having secretly spent her life undermining black folks, although in reality, a young Hillary Clinton did volunteer work in the South to help make sure that black children had access to quality schooling.

And don't even get me started on how many of the fans of Bernie Sanders stayed home on Election Day 2016, out of anger from learning that the DNC had weighted the scales to favor Hillary during the Democratic primaries. BTW, during those primaries, Senator Sanders had gotten about 86% of the number of votes that Mrs Clinton got, so Bernie had MANY MILLIONS of fans. And the thing is, any Bernie FANS who actually DID STAY HOME on Election Day 2016, WERE NOT really WORRIED that THEIR FAILURE to vote would HELP ELECT TRUMP, because NO ONE with a Liberal MINDSET in 2016, THOUGHT that a former HOST of a FAKE Reality TV Show, who'd BOASTED ABOUT being able to GRAB Women By The PUSSY, and GET AWAY WITH IT, because of being "A Star", was the TYPE of MAN who HAD ANY CHANCE in HELL of actually BEING ELECTED.

So Hardware, my overall point is that there may easily be about 5 million Americans that opposed Trump (or more) who stayed home on Election Day 2016, because they HAD NO FEAR that a Trump victory WAS POSSIBLE. But those same people, if CONFRONTED with a Trump candidacy in 2020, will ABSOLUTELY AVOID making that SAME MISTAKE that they now know that they made in 2016.

But on the other hand, even though it was widely reported in the mainstream media of November 2016 that Hillary was VERY LIKELY to win the election, those reports had NO SIGNIFICANT EFFECT in DEPRESSING Trump's vote, the way that those same reports DID HELP to DEPRESS Clinton's vote. Part of the reason for that was Trump's CONSTANT CONDITIONING of his followers to DISTRUST the MEDIA. And another reason that Trump's followers THOUGHT HE COULD WIN was because they knew that his rallies generally drew large crowds, even though history tells us that in a number of Presidential campaigns, the candidate who drew substantially larger crowds was still defeated pretty handily. But anyway, Trump folks seeing his big crowds, CERTAINLY HELPED BOOST ENTHUSIASM, and students of 2016's election know that Trump's people WERE DEFINITELY MORE ENTHUSIASTIC about ACTUALLY making the EFFORT TO VOTE, than Clinton's people were.

Also, Donald Trump's support HAS NOT GROWN since ELECTION DAY 2016, and Donald's support among white Evangelical Christians has DROPPED by 9% since the 2016 election. But a point that's even more important than that is that in 2016's election, local officials in the rural areas of America, where Trump was strongest, said that they saw levels of voter turnout that were not only the highest that had ever been seen in those areas, but many of those officials said that they had not thought that such high rates of turnout had even been possible. But paradoxically, that ULTRA-HIGH rural voter turnout for Trump in 2016, makes a Democrat like me even MORE CONFIDENT that Trump would be defeated in 2020, if he actually runs. Because that tells me that Donald Trump basically MAXIMIZED his voter turnout in 2016, with ALMOST NONE OF HIS SUPPORTERS HAVING STAYED HOME on Election Day.

BTW, here's an interesting fact. 2 weeks BEFORE 2016's election, on ABC, Cokie Roberts reported the results of a survey that compared 2 large groups of people, that should have SCARED the HELL out of Mrs Clinton and her supporters. One of the 2 groups was made up of Trump supporters, and the other was made up of Clinton supporters. The members of each group were asked about how sure they were that they would actually cast their votes for their candidate. 95% of the people of the Trump group said that they were certain that they would get out and vote for Trump. But only 81% of the people of the Clinton group were EQUALLY CERTAIN that they would get out to vote for Hillary. Obviously, Trump people were MORE ENTHUSIASTIC about voting in 2016, than Clinton people were. But I DOUBT that PEOPLE OPPOSING TRUMP will AGAIN lose a CONTEST OF ENTHUSIASM in 2020. Because in November 2018's election, even after MANY WEEKS of Mr Trump having USED his SCARE TACTICS about HIS BORDER ISSUE, that ONLY RESULTED in serving to bring Democrat candidates ABOUT 9 MILLION MORE VOTES than Republican candidates received. And that happened EVEN THOUGH there was a TERRIFIC ECONOMY which would usually HELP THE PARTY IN POWER, and Trump had constantly told voters that they NEEDED to VOTE for Republican Candidates to SUPPORT Trump's POLICIES. And we SHOULD REMEMBER, that voters who support Democrats have historically VOTED at VERY LOW RATES in MIDTERM elections. All the experts AGREE, it was the NEGATIVE FEELINGS ABOUT Trump, Among countless Americans, that really WON the House for the Dems. Donald's erratic, and even QUITE UNHINGED, statements, are scaring many Americans away from wanting to support the asshole!

^^ "the Native American thing, which is lame".

Lying claiming to be Native American all through you're career to take up the advantages offered to such a group, then lying that you did so. Raising that is "lame"? I fully expected this revelation to end Warren's political career - and I believe it should have.

^ Ummm ... how 'bout the fact that Trump, from the day after coming into office has basically backed away from every major statement he made during the campaign? Is that meaningless? (Did his supporters just expect him to lie?)

Exactly.
No More Bullshit. On any side. Anyone deeming themselves worthy of our vote should be scrutinized at the highest level.
"Well that isn't right. Why should they be required to reveal everything?" Why the fuck not? They are claiming they have all these ideas and are qualified to lead us, asking us to trust them, yet they lie and are evasive about their histories? Fuck that.

My 1st thought is would Harris want that do nothing job.On the other hand, Biden is so old(78 1st day in office) he might not run for a 2nd term making the VP job more intriguing.

It's only a do-nothing job if you do nothing.

Sure, Mike Pence only stands behind tGrump with a spousal worshipful gaze.

But Cheney got right up in that.

Some first ladies keep a low profile, and others bounce around and make waves.

There's nothing to keep a vp from trotting around making a splash.

IMO she would be doing most of the leg work with Biden helping her. It would be similar to the way Eisenhower and Nixon worked.
I concur about him likely not running for a 2nd term, making Harris a strong presidential candidate in 24 against Romney. Yes, IMO, Romney will be the Republican nominee in 2024.

***

President Donald Trump has a low approval rating. He is engaging in bitter Twitter wars and facing metastasizing investigations.

But if the election were held today, he’d likely ride to a second term in a huge landslide, according to multiple economic models with strong track records of picking presidential winners and losses.

“The economy is just so damn strong right now and by all historic precedent the incumbent should run away with it,” said Donald Luskin, chief investment officer of TrendMacrolytics, a research firm whose model correctly predicted Trump’s 2016 win when most opinion polls did not. “I just don’t see how the blue wall could resist all that.”

Models maintained by economists and market strategists like Luskin tend to ignore election polls and personal characteristics of candidates. Instead, they begin with historical trends and then build in key economic data including growth rates, wages, unemployment, inflation and gas prices to predict voting behavior and election outcomes.
Yale economist Ray Fair, who pioneered this kind of modeling, also shows Trump winning by a fair margin in 2020 based on the economy and the advantage of incumbency.

“Even if you have a mediocre but not great economy — and that’s more or less consensus for between now and the election — that has a Trump victory and by a not-trivial margin,” winning 54 percent of the popular vote to 46 for the Democrat, he said. Fair’s model also predicted a Trump win in 2016 though it missed on Trump’s share of the popular vote.

***

The two authors make cogent points. In fact they forgot a couple of other things Goblin has on his side; along with a good-ish economy and the power of the incumbency, he also does not care about anything except campaigning and all of his policy decisions are driven by that. Also, he and his enablers in the Senate and the media are dangerously close to normalizing corruption
and law-breaking. He should have gone down 1 hex already, but nothing sticks. So on that basis, if Dems don't turn out in 2020, he can win again.

I hope that you have opened up your checkbook and started making some rather hefty contributions to the DNC to make this happen.

I don't know if you are aware, but primaries are paid for by the state and caucuses are paid for by the party. It costs the taxpayers, according to Open Primaries, $427,300,168.79 to run the primaries. If you are demanding separate primaries with the Democratic primary far earlier than the Republican one, I hope that you plan on having the DNC (and thus ultimately registered Democrats) foot the bill. If you don't, you have essentially assured a Trump victory due to how many people you will piss off.

I didn't think that he meant early primaries.

Over time, some candidates drop out. It doesn't have to be due to primary results, it can be because of poll results, lack of donations, influence from other party members, etc.

I don't share any sort of panic about needing the kind of speed he is advocating. It might be nice, in one sense, but I'd like to see it play out so that the public gets exposure to the candidates and the public makes informed choices. I don't want it to drag out, but a steady pace is fine with me, as long as the candidates don't do a circular firing squad.

My point is the more infighting the more divided the party will become. It's already happening.

Then the infighting is the problem.

Someone made the point that it's hard to divide a group that's essentially the mascot of old white guys, and easier to divide a big tent group that has a lot of diversity.

They're just going to have to deal with that. It's going to happen, in the press, at the debates, etc.

It is entirely possible that the U.S. is just going down, and that's that.

There is going to be infighting. The Democratic party spans ideologically from Sanders to Biden. That is a huge distance ideologically. That is going to lead to infighting.

Just like the Republican's current slate spans ideologically from Weld to Trump, which is just a huge ideological distance as Sanders to Biden.

2) hate to say this, but it's going to take a Feeding-The-Forty-Thousand-sized miracle for her to win

A excerpt from the article:

"We spent, I think, way too much time on our side talking about him," Buttigieg said in an interview with "The Breakfast Club," a New York City-based radio show, which ran Tuesday morning. "Our whole message was don't vote for him because he is terrible. And even because he is, that is not a message."

I'm going to add another opinion and I've said this before. Clinton lost because she took the Blue Wall for granted. It was there for Obama because Barry worked his ass off to get it. She just took it for granted that it would there for her!

IIRC, FF posted a quote or tweet from her husband, Bill, urging her to go to the Blue Wall states but she refused. smh.

While I don't want to get into a whole rehash of 2016, Buttgeig is making the same errors as everyone else: going for the "Hillary Soundbite" when the truth is more complex:

At one point or another, I or someone else have posted the following in the 2016 Election thread:

...there's a good amount of links in this very thread about reasons for Trump's win. There's no single bullet theory but there are some core germs:

1) As I state above, Trump fired up Republicans with "Us Vs. Them", Hillary did not.

2) Part and parcel with #1, the Media covered Trump and his rallies 24/7.

3) Hillary Clinton is not a campaigner. And, I'll confess, this was a key to Obama winning. Increasingly, we as a nation want to be entertained during these two-year slogs for the presidency. Facts? Policies? Fuck that shit, let's see somebody get punched!

4) Dems were too divided. Bernie Sanders beat up Hillary non-stop. Between him and Trump, Hillary looked like Gerry Cooney after the Larry Holmes fight in '82.

5) Black People did not show up. It was African Americans who made the difference in recent elections in Alabama and Virginia.

6) Hillary's Email Server was a highly effective cudgel to use against her. (Note: Did GOPers really give a shit about her server? Of course not. But she handed it to them to use against her, and they obliged.)

7) Bill Clinton's baggage came along for the ride too.

8) Conservative Talk Radio and Fox kept hammering away at one specific issue: The Judiciary. Judges, Judges, Judges. While Democrats obsessed over emails and Goldman Sachs, those guys kept their eyes on what was REALLY important. "Grab 'em by the pussy" wasn't anywhere near as important as "Ruth Bader Ginsburg is 84 years old."
So that's just a few nuggets, that, like I said, are sprinkled throughout this thread and elsewhere.

I've done a lot of thinkin about #1, on that above list, and essentially it boils down to this: Trump had the license to be as crass and as ugly as he wanted to be, (with the GOP Base following suit) while Hillary was told she needed to be sweet, polite and upstanding and not respond tit for tat. It was like putting Serena Williams in a tennis match against Roger Federer AND telling her she has to wear high heels.

Oh, forgot this one:

More from Harvard:

Summary: Donald Trump succeeded in shaping the election agenda. Coverage of Trump overwhelmingly outperformed coverage of Clinton. Clinton’s coverage was focused on scandals, while Trump’s coverage focused on his core issues.

The most telling chart:

I'll close with this: I just mentioned how Elizabeth Warren is turning out policy papers left and right: She's currently standing at 5th place in a new and

In both these polls, the front runner is Biden, a guy who hasn't even announced yet.


So the Hillary Soundbite doesn't hold up. I'm NOT saying she didn't make mistakes. I'm not saying she didn't have inherent personality issues. All I'm saying is, she talked about policy in speech after speech after speech and every news network gave more airtime to empty Trump stages. ("He's due to show up any minu-- HEY LOOK! THEY'RE ADJUSTING HIS MICROPHONE!!
