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.)

wow an amazing get for mayor pete's campaign, what a pedigree

Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg has hired a former Goldman Sachs vice president and Google executive to run his policy shop, his campaign announced Thursday.

Sonal Shah, now executive director of the Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation at Georgetown University, will be the campaign’s national policy director.

Shah worked at Goldman Sachs from 2004 to 2007 as a vice president, according to her LinkedIn page. She then worked for Google as its head of global development initiatives from 2007 to 2009.

can't wait to see those policy proposals!

it is really sad that someone would assess the field of 20+ candidates and go with fucking Marianne Williamson. hopefully she won't do a 3rd party run after she drops out of the democratic primary. she seems like a prime candidate for that kind of thing.

Karl Malone, Friday, 19 July 2019 14:41 (seven hours ago) link

I suspect her relatively high numbers are attributable to her being a complete outlier... the combined support for the dozen milquetoast no-names will accrue to whichever one hangs around the longest

Gravel has more donors but the DNC deliberately left him off polls to juke his numbers down, so that he wouldn't be able to accurately say that Biden sucks, on TV
