LOL...Trump is probably getting ready to declare the midterm elections invalid due to Russian interference. Same for 2020.

And in the category of "Please, please tell me this isn't really happening" comes this:

Michael Avenatti heads to Iowa
(CNN)Michael Avenatti, the combative lawyer who represents adult film star Stormy Daniels against President Donald Trump, will speak next month at a Iowa Democratic fundraising dinner, a frequent stop for potential presidential candidates.
Avenatti, a lawyer who has become ubiquitous presence on television and Twitter in recent months, confirmed the appearance to CNN and his photo and bio are now featured on the Wing Ding website.
"I'll be at the Wing Ding," the lawyer said.
The August 10 dinner in Clear Lake, Iowa -- known for its fried chicken wings and presidential politics -- is a grassroots fundraiser for county Democratic parties and has become a popular stop for Democrats considering running for President.
Avenatti has previously said that he would consider running for President in 2020 if he felt like other Democratic candidates were unable to defeat Trump.
Avenatti told CNN earlier this month that he is qualified to run "because I have three things this president lacks: Brains, heart and courage."
On Wednesday, he said that he had not decided whether to actually run.
And Stormy can be his running mate! :lol:

He really needs to have a large anvil dropped on him.

He embodies "living up to the negative stereotype" with regards to lawyers.

Joe Biden the clear Democratic 2020 favorite, but musters only half the enthusiasm Hillary Clinton did 4 years ago
The results of a 2020 poll out Sunday underscore how undecided Democrats and left-leaning independents are about who should be the Democratic Party's standard bearer.

CNN released a survey, conducted by SSRS, showing former Vice President Joe Biden as their candidate of choice to challenge President Trump in two years. Biden got 33 percent of the vote when 464 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents were asked in a telephone survey from Oct. 3-7.

The next-closest contender is Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., who was 20-percentage points back with 13 percent.
Begs the question...
Is this the same poling company that predicted a landslide for HER TURN?

Obviously, if joe can only muster half the support then it must be her turn now!

Draft Hillary to ensure full republican turnout, not just 50%!

It's Breitbart so skepticism advised, but here goes ...

Rapper Akon ‘Very Seriously’ Considering Challenging Trump in 2020
Rapper and R&B star Akon claimed in a recent interview that he is “very seriously” considering mounting a presidential bid in 2020.
“I’ve been thinking about running for 2020 very seriously,” Akon told Newsweek. “But I didn’t want to just do it because I feel like I want to continue doing what I’m doing and hope that builds me enough momentum [for people] to say, ‘You know what, if you run we’ll support you.'”

Akon, whose real name is Aliaune Damala Badara Thiam, was born in St. Louis, Missouri and spent much of his childhood in Senegal. The 45-year-old entrepreneur, who is developing plans for a futuristic cryptocurrency-run city in West Africa, suggested President Donald Trump’s immigration policies have help nudged him toward launching a White House run.

...
Not a Democratic Party "regular" and not otherwise obviously evil.

Hmm. :mrgreen:

Uh oh. Practically official now I guess. And none of that "unidentified source BS either.

Will their even be a primary?

Hillary Clinton will run for president again in 2020, former adviser says
Washington Examiner
Hillary Clinton will run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020, according to a former adviser and a top Democrat in New York.

Mark Penn, a pollster and senior adviser to former President Bill Clinton and ex-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from 1995-2008, and Andrew Stein, a former Manhattan Democratic party figure and New York City Council president, wrote Sunday in a Wall Street Journal opinion piece that the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee would not let "two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House."

"Mrs. Clinton has come unbound. She will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career," Penn and Stein wrote of President Trump, explaining how Clinton would re-package herself as a more liberal "Hillary Clinton 4.0." "You can expect her to run for president once again. Maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing."

"Mrs. Clinton has a 75% approval rating among Democrats, an unfinished mission to be the first female president, and a personal grievance against Mr. Trump, whose supporters pilloried her with chants of 'Lock her up!' This must be avenged," the pair continued.

...
And her program can be summed up in one word: revenge!

Warren released her DNA results to take it off the table for 2020. Most people aren't getting this, it will be "old news" by then that she's a fake poser imposter cretinoid.

What It Means That Hillary Clinton Might Run for President in 2020

I don't believe it.....Seriously?
...
As 2018 nears its end, the top of the Democratic Party is looking to continue Clintonism without the Clintons.

Or maybe Clintonism with the Clintons.

A real possibility is now emerging that Hillary Clinton will run for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination. On Sunday, the New York Times printed a Maureen Dowd column that reported: “Some in Clintonworld say Hillary fully intends to be the nominee…. And Bill has given monologues to old friends about how Hillary knows how she’d have to run in 2020, that she couldn’t have a big staff and would just speak her mind and not focus-group everything. (That already sounds focus-grouped.)”
...
That’s where we are now—not only with the grim prospect that Hillary Clinton might run for president again, but more fundamentally with corporate allegiances still dominating the Democratic Party leadership.

:doglaugh:

She has some enthusiastic supporters, but... no way 75% approval in any meaningful sense. If there was even a serious survey at all, I would like to hear how the question was asked.

Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Presumably, it all depends whether you asked a dem "do you generally approve of Hillary and wish she was president? " (75% plus) or "do you want Hillary to run again in 2020?" (crickets).

Bernie is "almost certain to be running." So it will be 2015-2016 all over again. Trump won't even have to campaign to win.
