2020 Dem presidential candidate speculation thread.

Post by Abdul Alhazred » Wed May 10, 2017 9:28 am

It was briefly mentioned in the Comey thread, but this requires a whole nuther thread.

Wouldn't it be cool if Condi ran in 2020 as a Democrat !? :coolspecs:

She was on a talk show yesterday.
Hairspray hostess asked, "Do you plan to ever return to Washington."
Condi replied, "No, I'm a very happy Standford professor."

I don't think so. In this case I take her at her word. If she starts to visit Iowa and New Hampshire a lot, maybe that would be a clue, but I don't see it. Accepting an appointment is different from actually running for office yourself.

She dreams of being NFL Commissioner, but may have to settle for being POTUS.

She's already more like a Democrat that any of the current crop of Republicans on the hot button domestic issues such as being pro-choice and pro-affirmative action. I'm sure she could come up to speed on the gay stuff (if she isn't there already), what with never having opposed it.

The foreign policy stuff the Dems called her a war criminal over back in the day are indistinguishable from the sort of thing Hillary pointed to with pride as Secretary of State.

And the Dems need a black woman to win.
Black, not merely "of color" like Liz Warren.

And the country needs Condi.

She will put up with the bullshit because she loves America. :)

I have changed the subject line.

The Condi thing is apparently going nowhere (though I wouldn't definitively count her out), but meanwhile it would be good to have a thread as a depository for 2020 Dem presidential candidate speculation.

I speak in jest but truthfully, two stranger nominations have happened.

unjestly, I'd like to see Condie run, either ticket. I'd like to see McCain run against her, either ticket. Because he's going to, ya know, die soon.

"STOP PROMOTING MAXINE 2020!! THIS would be a disaster for us. Maxine Waters is far too powerful and likable, please do not give the dems the idea to let her run in 2020. SHE WILL STUMP TRUMP!! THIS. MUST. NOT. HAPPEN."

Isn't Maxine Waters the congress critter who claimed the army summarily executed a few hundred black men during Hurticame Katrina? Or do I have her confused with someone else?
