The 2020 Democrat Nominee

 The 2020 Democrat Nominee will be Bernie Sanders. Change my mind.

  • I think it will be Joe Biden.

    My track record isn't great though.
  • Joe will be one of the last to drop out.

    So will Kamala, but in her case it will be because the party convinced her to stay in as long as possible thanks to the optics.

    Bernie will be the nominee for these reasons:

    1. Barring some sort of Black Swan event, the party doesn’t think it can win, so they need a sacrificial candidate. If that lets them get rid of Bernie, so much the better.

    2. Bernie actually believes the shit he says and that sincerity comes across as honesty. That will make him appealing to a lot of people.

    3. I like to say that if you value Socialism over Capitalism that you understand neither. That would be a fair description of most people under 40. Those people also won’t know that Bernie is a Leninist. So a large number of people voting in the Democrat primary will see him as just a nice old man who wants to help people.
  • It won't be Bernie or Biden, they are just targets to catch the first arrows and raise funds for the war chest.  The real candidate is someone like Kamala or maybe Castro.
  • Kamala is a flake who doesn’t know what her opinion is until you tell her what you want to hear.

    Castro needs to be a VP first. Still surprised that Hillary didn’t tap him for that role in 2016.

    Castro is a Latino Dukakis and lives in Beto's shaddow. There's still a big blue hard on for that guy down here. Hell, people are leaving his old ISIS-style campaign yard signs up.
