2020 Democrat Presidential Candidates, Holy Cow
Without an Obama, Clinton or Kennedy available to lead, the Democrat party are having trouble deciding on who will be the next person to attempt to take down Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
Clearly the party thought that they’d win with Hillary. They sunk massive amounts of debt into Hillary campaigns while angering everyone in the party who supported Bernie Sanders. The Democrats didn’t think that they’d ever have to plan to find a new name for 2020, because it was supposed to be Her Turn.
What’s So Special About The Clintons and Obamas?
Jeb Bush was no different than Hillary Clinton running for President. Both of them felt it was their turn. But America isn’t a monarchy. In England, Queen Elizabeth will pass the crown on to her children. America could’ve set itself up as a monarchy with George Washington being the first King, but the system in place now was a direct rejection of families taking over government.
There’s nothing so important about the Bush family, or the Clintons or Obamas or Kennedys that mean that the rest of us will perish if we don’t have someone with an approved surname in the White House.
But now, even without a real Name Brand Candidate, the recommendations of Barack Obama are still considered valuable to the losers on the left.
Recently former Obama era Attorney General Eric Holder told his friends at the Washington Post that he has the “guts” to be President.
Holder was responsible for the Fast and Furious disaster that fed thousands of guns to Mexican criminals. Bullets from those guns were later used to kill Americans. Gutsy!
He was also the first AG who was ever found to be in contempt of Congress on both criminal and civil grounds after he refused to cooperate with probes looking into his 2012 gun running.
Former Veep Joe Biden
Perhaps under the influence of heavy drugs, respondents to a poll of Democrats showed that Biden is at the top of the stack of preferred candidates.
Gov. Deval Patrick
Obama said that the former head boy of Massachusetts would be a “worthy successor.”
A few years ago, Obama’s government bailed out the Massachusetts health-care exchange run by Patrick which temporarily allowed over 300,000 residents in the state to receive Medicaid coverage without any verification that they were eligible.
Gov. Terry McAuliffe
“Who better to take on Trump than me?” said the former Governor of Virginia, who seems to have no policy position but likes to daydream about getting sweaty with his political opponents.
Earlier this year, McAuliffe, 61, threatened physical violence against Donald Trump. MSNBC’s Chris Matthews asked McAuliffe to clarify. His response is class Tough Guy:
“Listen, this guy got in my space, you want to get in my space, I’ve always said, Chris, you punch me, I’m going to punch you back twice as hard. And it wouldn’t be hard to do it. This guy thinks he can intimidate everybody. It’s disgraceful and embarrassing. But I tell you, when we take him on, back in his face with the facts, don’t take anything from him and hit him back as hard as you possibly can.”
Sure Terry. You sound like the guy at the gym who gives out stupid pointers because you “used to compete.”

Speaking to press at a recent fundraiser, longtime support Lucifer commented that he would be a natural fit for the party.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo
New York’s finest Andrew Cuomo has been trying out his anti-Trump slogans, by… stealing Trump’s slogan?
“We’re going to make America great again.”
Andrew, you can’t just outright steal a slogan. Stick to pretending to be an immigrant.
Of course, despite Governors being a better choice because they’re already run a state (even if they did a terrible job), it’s the Senators who get more press due to their ability to insert themselves into every news cycle.
Names that have been floated are:
- Sen. Bernie Sanders
- Sen. Kamala Harris
- Sen. Elizabeth Warren
- Sen. Sherrod Brown
- Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand
- Sen. Amy Klobuchar
- Sen. Cory Booker
Of that bunch, my money is on Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand. One of her major flaws is that her name is difficult to spell, but she is attractive.
Like Obama, she has a weak resume in the real world. But just like with Obama, sometimes a marketable body and a blank slate is all a Democrat wants.
