    The 2020 Presidential Race

    Is it starting up in earnest?

    óElizabeth Warren released results of recent DNA test today.

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren has released the results of a DNA test that she says provides "strong evidence" of Native American ancestry dating back six to 10 generations, addressing a controversy that has followed her for years.

    The results were part of an elaborate strategy to end questions about her ancestry, possibly in anticipation of a 2020 presidential bid. In addition to the DNA analysis that fit with family stories, Warren also released a campaign-style video with clips of President Trump mocking her and vignettes from her family history.

    ó Cory Booker (a US Senator from New Jersey) went to Iowa last week, and Kamala Harris (a US Senator from California) is heading there in next week. Gosh, now why would they go to Iowa, of all places?

    Booker visited Iowa October 6th-9th and has drawn impressive crowds to his early events thanks in large part to the extensive groundwork Booker has begun in the state far ahead of many of the other high-profile potential 2020 hopefuls.

    Kamala Harris also plans to visit the Hawkeye State on October 22nd and 23rd and will appear in Des Moines and Cedar Rapids after she visits South Carolina and Wisconsin. Harris has recently said she will ďseriously take a look atĒ running in 2020 following the November midterms.

    Election reform would be wonderful. Maximum 6 months and $10M for any federal position campaign. Anybody who goes over either limit is DQd.

    You can't disqualify some1 for having more money this doesn't make sense. I am sure you wanna live in Venezuela where everyone is equal, but truth is everyone is not equal. Sooner you realize it the better.

    Apples and oranges. Venezuela is an authoritarian nation. Bernie Sanders is anti-authoritarian.

    Future Hall of Shamers:
    (1) B.A.L.C.O. Barroids (2) Mark McJuicer (3) Jose Chem-seco (4) Rafael Palmeiroids (5) Ken Chem-initi (6) Jason Gi-andro (7) Ryan Fraud (8) Muscle Melk (9) Woman-Ram (10) Shammy Sosa (11) Roger Clear-mens (12) A-Roid (13) Ryan HGHoward

    I'm pretty much checked out here. Arguing with the least interesting and intelligent reactionaries in the world. The reality that things are only getting worse. Hell world.

    But somehow, the idea that we're less than a year away from having to watch two sundowning grandpas sit on stage and yell at each other about how their brains are less rotten than the other's as they vie for the Presidency actually makes me even more depressed! Hard to believe, but it can get worse!

    There's still a lot of time left for Biden to sabotage himself, but he's proving to be more resilient right now than I'd hope. If what Democrats learn from 4 years of Trump is "Joe Biden's the guy we need", well, ****. Might as well throw up the white flag. The one guy who's less inspiring than Hillary...but just happens to be buddies with Obama. That's good enough!



    Sanders and Warren seem to be the most resilient candidates after him. Hopefully there's enough mutual support between the two of them that when one leaves, the other can topple Biden.

    Harris seemingly is dipping again. Maybe she shouldn't have turned on single payer

    Speaking in right wing bumper sticker propaganda gets us nowhere.

    Yes, anyone left of center is a commi socialist who wants to change their gender, marry the same gender, move to Venezuela and kill babies.

    I almost made this thread last Thursday. Thanks! Plenty to discuss.

    Definitely a move with an eye towards 20/20. Not sure it matter a whole lot. I'm sure Trump will still be calling her Pocahontas.


    Also, I do think at this point Bernie is going to run too. He's making all the early moves you'd expect.

    NO! We can't have any more of this green party bull****. The Democrats should have won that election in Ohio but because of the green party vote, they lost.
    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!

    And if Republicans hadn't voted for Green Party, maybe Republicans would have won by more

    Absolutely not, thatís how you hand away elections.

    Institute ranked choice elections and then maybe we can revisit this.

    ^lol so that's incorrect

    Maybe the democratic party should appeal to those voters better?

    If morons hadnít voted for the third party in the Ohio special election, there would be a Democrat occupying a seat that had only been held by Democrats in the 1930s and once in 1980. But they grabbed defeat from
    the jaws of victory...like they always do.

    Iíd love to have it tattooed on every Democrat ďperfection is the enemy of goodĒ.

    If the moronic democratic party would appeal to those voters, maybe they'd vote democrat. Otherwise, you're just voter shaming.

    Bernie should run 3rd party and make the democratic party come to him. Otherwise he'll just get cheated, again, in the primary.
