Duckworth hasn't distinguished herself during the nomination process/voting, but theoretically I'm okay with putting up a veteran/child of an immigrant up against Trump.

I'm basically on board for Harris and Duckworth; I don't know if Jay Inslee is really likely to explore a run but he's been a good governor and maybe he will gain some national prominence suing the present administration.

Disclaimer - I'm a midwesterner and probably don't know enough about my proposal here: I'm really not super-aware of his politics (I know progressives have tried to run against him in primaries in CA), but something always gets me about Gavin Newsom whenever he's on Real Time or news programs. I know he's done good things for homeless issues/causes. same-sex marriage, marijuana legalization, etc. There's a gravitas about him that just telegraphs potential youth vote/new blood presidential candidate.

BlackIronPrison, Wednesday, 1 February 2017 22:14 (two years ago) link

gavin newsom has skeletons in his closet

the late great, Wednesday, 1 February 2017 22:18 (two years ago) link

i think at this point he is a bit too much of a stereotypical big city liberal w/ loose morals to really make a palatable national candidate

maybe when he is older

the late great, Wednesday, 1 February 2017 22:19 (two years ago) link

Newsom and Harris both strike me as too in-the-bed with finance/Clinton neoliberalism to get people excited to turn out in vote. (Alternately, the Dems might be able to nominate Roger Clinton and Billy Carter in 2020 and win.)

Mayor Pete is basically a vanity candidate for the gifted adult children of Manhattan and similar places.

longtime caller, first time listener (man alive), Monday, 16 September 2019 15:58 (yesterday) link

Mayor Pete is like my rich, gay, white banker neighbors - lefty in some ways, but capitalist to the core, generally clueless about race and class, and with a mean conservative streak when it comes to "law and order" and "propriety" and shit like that.

I'm glad that Warren hasn't felt compelled to put motherhood too front and center in her campaign, except when it was relevant to the topic at hand, like paid family leave. For a long time I didn't even think she had any children.

Evans on Hammond (evol j), Monday, 16 September 2019 19:21 (yesterday) link

one of her kids is a pharma exec no? i like warren, but maybe that's why she doesn't bring up her children often.

Mommy...can I go out and VAPE tonight? (voodoo chili), Monday, 16 September 2019 19:23 (yesterday) link

i think she doesn't bring up being a mom that often because, while it's a compliment from my perspective, a plurality of americans seem to hate "moms"
