Good luck with that.

Seeing Red said...

Losers. Not Pres material either.

Francisco D said...

WaPo's preferences/predictions are interesting.

Stacy Abrams is second on the list because the Georgia gubernatorial election was "stolen" from her. That will be a big campaign theme for the Democrats. They have nothing else to run on.

Achilles said...

Kamala Harris dropped out because she made a deal to be the veep nom for whatever white millionaire wins the primary.

She checks all the boxes.

Skeptical Voter said...

Yup--Stacy Abrams---gives you two reasons not to vote for the Democrat presidential nominee in 2020. The idea of that whining round mound of venom being just one step away from the Oval Office is too terrible to contemplate.

Achilles said...

Stacy Abrams is fat and mean.

The dems only nominate her if they know they will lose anyway.

Kamala isn't fat and ugly and checks the same boxes.

The reason they are both at the top of the list is because they are Black and the democrat party is explicitly racist.

Lucid-Ideas said...

#2 Stacey Abrams

Are these supposed to be in order?
Are they high?

Because Stacey Abrams is how you bring back working class voters, men, southerners, and that dog that you lost to the democratic party...

Really glad I never worked in politics. I would've sucked!

Paul said...

All I see is 15 loser in that list.

Jupiter said...

They seem to have left out Joe Biden. He was good enough for Obama.

lgv said...

Woman hear me roar.

Poor Mayor Pete, the only white guy in the top 13. At least he has the gay thing to help him. The last two are just token white guys, not really a possibility. Just like the NFL, where they have to interview a minority for the head coaching job even if they have no intention of hiring them. The first ones who claims to be a lesbian between Harris and Abrams wins with three checked boxes.

The good news is that running as VP really hides the serious flaws that prevented them from getting the nomination.

Ann Althouse said...

I was stunned to see Tammy Baldwin on the list!

They're going to need to add gravitas. That's been very important recently.

Interesting that the good looking gal in the white suit did not make the top fifteen.

Prolly that white suit.

YoungHegelian said...

My guess is the Dems will choose a black VP candidate so as to firm up the black vote, what with polls showing possible defection over to the Dark Side of The Force, AKA Darth Orange Man.

And by a black candidate I do not count Kamala Harris. Half Jamaican/Indian and years as CA prosecutor do not cut it.

Back bencher Baldwin!

rcocean said...

What a crazy list. I mean, it all depends on WHO is the POTUS candidate. Biden will NOT pick a white man, but a female or a POC. Warren will pick a male probably a POC. Sanders and Buttigig a female, probably POC.

The D's are RULED By identity politics. The ticket must be balanced. White vs. POC. Male vs. Female. The days of two white males or even two whites on a D presidential ticket are OVER. Best shots at being VP:

1. Kamala D. Harris
2. Stacey Abrams
3. Cory Booker (if Warren or Kochblob gets the Nomination)
4. Deval Patrick

Lucid-Ideas said...

@Igv

I've said here numerous times that the Democratic Party has become the party of women (only liberal women), gays (and other acronym of the month club members), and tottering old farts who remind them of a the white straight men they've either lost or can't lose because they're just old letches now.

Any straight man under 40 that's remotely threatening to them has been demoted to the very bottom of the party hierarchy.

Apparently we weren't "better together".

Good grief. You can't be this credulous.

This list was just to make women who want to be tricked feel better.

All of these decisions have been made. There is nothing organic about any of this.

tcrosse said...

Whom will Hillary choose?

rcocean said...

Deval Patrick is real possibility. I like the cut of his jib. Boring, respectable, almost Establishment. Just the sort of POC to balance out Bernie, Buttigig, and Biden.

A no-go with Warren, because you can't have POTUS and VP from the same state.

Achilles said...

I think Gabbard and Borris have a lot in common ideologically. He is very much to the left.

But they are on the nationalist side.

There is no ideology in this battle. This is nationalists vs. globalists at every level and Gabbard is on the wrong side of that fight.

Michelle has more of a chance than Hillary.

Francisco D said...

They need a Midwestern female, especially if the presidential nominee is an old East Coast White guy. She's a twofer - female and lesbian.

Amy Klobuchar would be a better VP nominee, but they are not really motivating the Black vote with a pale slate.

Dagwood said...

So the current Democratic formula for selecting a running mate is, "not white and having a vayjay > not white > gay > anyone else with a vayjay" ?

tim maguire said...

Hopefully it’s someone we've never heard if because that is one of the most uninspiring lists I’ve ever seen.

Achilles said...Kamala Harris dropped out because she made a deal to be the veep nom for whatever white millionaire wins the primary.

She checks all the boxes.


She fails to check the biggest box of all—the number one job of any VP is to deliver their state. Which means the best VP picks come from a swing state. Harris comes from CA, so she adds nothing there. Biden already scores well with blacks so she gives nothing there either. The only thing she adds is being a woman, but Warren is a better choice for that.

Capitol Report New Mexico said...

That Michelle Lujan Grisham is on the list is scary, says this New Mexico resident. There are orders of magnitude more qualified people such as Amy Klobuchar.

stevew said...

From near last on the Dem POTUS candidate ranking to first on the VP candidate ranking. Well played Miss, well played.

Bruce Hayden said...

My vote would be either the NV or NM governors. Both have decent crossover appeal, they have appeal to Hispanics, are women and have at least a little executive experience, which the remaining serious Dem candidates sorely lack.

Unless Mini Mike gets the nomination. He has dropped maybe $100 million so far, to buy a 5% popularity share so far, and that means that he could very possibly buy his way into the top tier wih a half billion. Small change for him- maybe 1% of his wealth. And he can’t take it with him. Besides, if he wins the Presidency, he gets control over the ATF. in any case, he probably has more executive experience than the top 5 Dem candidates combined, so probably would need someone with either flyover country or left coast appeal.

Kammy is No. 1? How can that be? I thought she had already blown her chances......

Michael Pence.

Bruce Hayden said...

I know that I probably sound redundant constantly pointing out Bloomberg’s candidacy. But I think the reality is that he is the Democrats best chance at beating Trump. Most of the remaining candidates are Senate or House backbenchers with extremely safe seats, plus the mayor who is mismanaging a small city. Oh, and the senile former VP, who actually wasn’t a backbencher when he was in the Senate. Mini Mike successfully ran one of our very biggest cities. Plus he built up a media empire that made him one of the richest people in the country. He has probably more competence than the lot of them combined.

Not that I expect him to get the nomination, because I don’t. The Democrats aren’t yet hungry enough to do what it would take to win, but instead seem stuck posturing and virtue signaling.

It would be carefully-constructed and guaranteed to drive half the country even further mad.

After all they've done for our country, I can't believe neither Schiff nor Nadler made the list.

Talk about a lack of appreciation!

Bloomberg kind of coasted on Rudy's record but his big issues were guns, big gulp and crappy Mayor stuff.

Street plowing and subway drowning were the worst.

States don't matter at this point. They really aren't going to win the election but they can try to keep the country divided along racial lines.

Right now they are losing their monolithic hold on Black and Hispanic voters. Just like Labor lost their red wall in Britain. This is a much bigger concern for them.

Trump is delivering prosperity to the working class and minorities are a big chunk of that. If they lose their hold on black voters they are done.

There is a political re-alignment going on all over the world. This goes beyond presidential politics. They have to keep people in racial tribes and out of nationalistic groups.

This is deeper than state by state efforts.

Achilles said...

To further the point about Abrams vs. Harris. It will be Harris.

The particular demographic dems are losing is the Black male voter. They like Trump.

Abrams is the wrong tool to attract Black male voters.

Harris has proven skills in that department.

Not that it will matter, but #s 2 & 3 on that list will guarantee a landslide for Trump. Guarantee. Nothing like failing up to make it big with the Dems.

Simply publishing the list allows freaks on the left to imagine that, chosen or not, at least their favorite was considered.

Your conclusion doesn't necessarily follow from your premise. Beyond enough money to make people aware that you're running, at a certain point you top out on the low-hanging fruit -- those who already like you and / or approve of your positions, but weren't yet aware you were running -- and get into the much harder territory convincing the not yet convinced.

Laurel and Hardy reference, right?

No way is it Harris. Too much baggage, a lousy campaigner, and she's not actually popular with blacks.

Abrams gives Biden everything Harris would theoretically, without the baggage, plus the illusion of putting Georgia into play.

were you born before the Depression? how fat are you IRL? in good enough shape to be making Hardy jokes?

Why are freaks like you on my side, what did me and the other conservatives here do to deserve this?

doctrev said...

I have no idea why people believe Harris is going to be the VP after being humiliated out of the nomination race. Why?? We are smugly assured that she ticks the boxes, but that didn't even get her to Iowa. Her weakness in getting black men to vote for her would make her uniquely unfit to combat Trump. Her wooden personality means Pence would effortlessly hold his own, and maybe embarrass her if his staff helps him remember some zingers.

Stacy Abrams would be much better at driving up black turnout, but putting this DMV stereotype in the driver's seat would be an official warning that the Democrats have given up trying to actually win the election. Reflecting on the list, you realize there isn't a lot of "woman of color" talent that's actually credible for the job. Whitmer literally just got the governorship, so it won't be her. Sen. Masto- wait, a first-term Senator from Nevada? Who was dumb enough to make this list anyways-

GOD. Professor, have you been taking stupid pills? The only thing Jennifer Rubin's less informed about than the Republican Party is the Rat Party. For the record, I am smarter than Jennifer Rubin, and apparently all of her readers, because I correctly saw that Kamala Harris was a uniquely inept sack of nothing from the first debate.

narciso you know I have no ill will towards anyone
and seriously nobody knows how to insult me in a way that makes me hurt
so i assume all this is just , if thought of in the best possible light ......

what we would think of 2019 if we all lived, as so many of us do, in some other year most of the time ////
(DIBZON that year, that day, that moment .... just kidding)

but imma gonna say this
and a million people can read this and maybe not one is gonna understand the hurt I am describing

have you ever heard a woman who will never have a man like Denzel in her life say, after a few beers, those two syllables

DEN

ZEL

with all the desire in her poor human heart that would break the heart of her mom and dad who I used to go on night drills and patrols with at the perimeter if her mom or dad heard her say those two syllables knowing what she really wanted at that moment in this world and knowing that

through zaftigity and its associated consequences

she ain't never gonna get it

and you know she wants it and you feel so bad for her

so you just pretend to look at her, in your innocent way (she knows you ain't going home with her tonight)

as if she were the most beautiful woman in the world


look at a few women who look a little like younger versions of Stacy Abrams the way I have looked at them, knowing how much they want to be loved and to love, then get back to me with whether it is ok to mock some guy's daughter because she has been inveigled into eating too much

before I was a faith healer I was just a guy who made people happy

Rosalyn C. said...

How about "none of the above?" Usually the VP pick is creepier and less competent than the Presidential candidate as some kind of assassination insurance. Kamala Harris is out unless Biden commits to one term because there would be too many people who would rather see her as president. Who was the guy Hillary Clinton chose as her running mate? Don't feel badly, I had to look it up. Tim Kaine. Biden, should he so fortunate to win the nomination, likewise will probably choose an unknown party hack. Joe's waited too long to be top banana for sharing the spotlight.

stephen cooper said...

I was referring to one of the people who work on Tammy Baldwin's staff

you have no idea how much I know about the details of people who used to live in the Midwest circa 1910-2015

she (the lady on Tammy Baldwin's staff) lives in Hawaii now

I would agree completely. There is probably some function between inputs($$$) and outputs (%popularity ). But it is always a mistake to assume linearity absent at least several more data points. I would expect the function to be more logarithmic than exponential. But we really don’t know. I do know that his are the only ads I have seen in recent months here in PHX. They aren’t uncommon here. And they are decently good. They talk about jobs and they talk about competence, which none of the other candidates really can talk about. Of course, there is the other side. He seems charismatic impaired. And the left half of the Dem party hate him almost a Much as Republicans do. (Surprisingly though several other Dem candidates see determined to beat him in being despised by gun owners

I am way too aware of how the world works to think that way ....


we all work our way back to God the way we can, we meet humble people along the way we meet blowhards along the way, only God knows who is pretending to be something they are not in order to lead us closer to God and who is just a simple person who does not understand humility or who thinks it is fun to be a blowhard because, let's face it, if you are a dude that is the way to quality hook-ups with women and if you are a woman that is the way to get a rich guy ....

well hate me for knowing this but I know there is something more important than ALL THE GREAT GIFTS IN LIFE that poor Obama and the poor blowhard dudes with their lust care about and the poor female admirers of the puppet Obamas of this world think of as THE GREAT GIFTS IN LIFE

read Proverbs 8 a few times, then read any of the chapters in Ephesians or Philippians two or three times.

I mean, even I , who could have told Dante how to be a better poet if he were the sort of person to be humble enough to listen to good advice, I could not have written Proverbs 8 or Ephesians or Philippians; wherein we learn that those who are powerful in our day are weak, weak, weak, because they do not defend the poorest of the poor.
Poor Obama, poor Bergoglio, poor Soros .....

Yes you are honest but you mistake puppets for men, maybe you do, anyway.

But remember that some old or middle-aged person's temptation to be a powerful puppet does not remove the successfully tempted person from the circle of humans whom we need to care about , and pray for .....

I rarely share my story with people, not only because it put me at the lowest point ever but because it made me a person of ridicule among family and friends. I put all I had into Binary Options ($690,000) after hearing great testimonies about this new investment

 strategy. I was made to believe my investment would triple, it started good and I got returns (not up to what I had invested). Gathered more and involved a couple family members, but I didn't know I was setting myself up for the kill, in less than no time all we had put ($820,000) was gone. It almost seem I had set them up, they came at me strong and hard. After searching and looking for how to make those scums pay back, I got introduced to maryshea03@gmail.com who helped recover about 80% of my lost funds within a month.

Biden is going for Harris or Abrams or Klobuchar.

But, I also said that Warren is going to win it all? So Biden will crash. Whose her VP? It will be Abrams or Castro or gov from MT, WA, or RI.

Cheers!

You heard it hear first.

I don't think Trump will accept any of those folks.
