Who’s Facing Trump in 2020?

The list is apparently long. Longer than I thought it would be, but silly rabbit…why wouldn’t it be long? Everybody and their brother thinks Hillary SHOULD have won, but didn’t, and all it will take is someone without an FBI investigation and scandal going on to beat him. Here are SOME of the 43 people that The Hill has identified as potential candidates:

 

Joe Biden

Bernie Sanders (Really?)

Elizabeth Warren (DUH!)

Senator Chris Murphy of Connecticut

Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg

New Jersey Senator Corey Booker

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo

Former Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley (does he EVER learn?)

Former HUD Secretary Julian Castro

Senator Tim Kaine of Virginia

Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio

Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick

New York City Mayor Bill DeBlasio

Dallas Mavericks Owner/Reality TV Host Mark Cuban

Billionaire Environmentalist Tom Steyer

DNC Chair Tom Perez

Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe

California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom

Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz

Actor Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

Representative Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii

Representative Keith Ellison of Minnesota

California Governor Jerry Brown (Again???)

Oprah Winfrey

Former Wisconsin Senator Russ Feingold

Former Vermont Governor Howard Dean

Former Vice President Al Gore

Former Senator Jim Webb of Virginia (that’ll work)

Representative Seth Moulton of Massachusetts

Senator Tammy Duckworth of Illinois

Washington Governor Jay Inslee

 

I left off a bunch of people that were listed, but said they weren’t running. I mean, if they’re taking themselves out of the race already, why bother, right?

With that list of characters, watching the Dems’ primary should be a real hoot! There is maybe one or two serious contenders in the whole lot, which bears repeating the question I have asked for months… why is the Democrats’ bench so short and so weak?

 

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
