    Senator Elizabeth Warren announced today, December 31, 2018, that she is creating an exploratory committee for a 2020 Presidential run.
    Watch the scared rightwingers start making Pocahontas jokes. Why are they so afraid of Senator Warren?

    Nope, her exploratory committee will be looking for the Northwest passage, and beaver skins naturally

    Seriously, imo Warren's exploratory committee will determine that she has a good chance to be nominated -- politicians are all full of themselves like that -- and to be able to raise the money necessary. She'll announce. Sanders level of success in 2016 shows that someone with Warren's views has a good chance of getting the nomination. Whether or not Trump chooses to run, the Rs only shot is a strong economy. That's iffy and even boom times might not be enough for them to retain the White House or the Senate (Gerrymandering will probably assure the Ds hold and gain in the House). It's gonna take a lot more than Hiawatha jokes if Rs want to remain relevant.

    The stakes in 2020 could be high. If Ginsburg passes and Trump appoints another justice, a D POTUS and Senate could very well choose to add 2 or 4 seats to the SCOTUS. D majorities in both houses could divide CA into 3 states, and possibly NY into 2 or 3, borders drawn is such a way as to assure D control of the Senate for all foreseeable time. If just a few of the right states get D majorities in their legislatures, the National Popular Vote Compact could be put into place, assuring D presidents for all foreseeable time. All this is straight from the mouth of a loyal leftist D, and it's not unthinkable.

    Figure in demographic changes, and failure in 2020 could have Rs saying goodbye to not just power but to any relevance for a long time. They're going to have to up their game, starting now, if they care about that.

    I want Kamala Harris or Beto O'Rourke.
    They've got what Barack Obama has.

    I'm speaking as a 72+ year old woman who knows it's time for the brand new and young. So, no Biden, no Warren, and no g-d Sanders either.
    Of course, I didn't mean it for Madam Speaker Nancy Pelosi.....as we need her skills and wisdom to lead the House and deal with that amoral, mentally unstable fool in the WH.

    great so you think it's ok to steal from minorities and claim minority status when you aren't a minority?

    I was unsure about Nancy, but she is training younger Democrats to take her place. Many moved into Leadership.

    But we absolutely need a strong woman to go up against the foggy bottom, stuck in the 1950’s white men. That is all Republicans have left and it is time for them to become as extinct as the Dodo bird.

    That is not to say there are plenty of older men who are just as progressive as I am. But I can assure you, not as many as we need. Their brains seem to calcify as they get older.

    I want a younger,agressive,one who knows what he is talking about.

    Lord knows I am sick of the lying, orange man we now have.

    But this too, shall pass. I am just happy to be here to observe. 108 women in the House, most Progressives, like me.

    No doubt. Kamala Harris has been through the ringer and how she worked so hard to get where she is, truly amazing.

    Julie, I have changed my mind about Kamala Harris. I still like Beto O'Rourke.
