So many Democrats refuse to recognize that it is Still Her Turn.

I so fucking called it.

Warren really is a sneaky fraud. She took and released the DNA test early to pull the "old news" card when she announced her bid.

Politics is enough to make you cynical.

I suspect that many of them are like Rubio the last time: getting attention.

The fact that the media, both "LIBERUL" and "JESUS!" keep asking Biden and Still Her Turn suggests that no one serious has entered yet.

Frankly, I don't think it matters who the Dems run. From what I have seen, there is no big name Dem who is even acceptable to the majority of Dems, much less the majority of the country. That might not be a fatal flaw if there wasn't an incumbent Republican president, but there is.

There has to be some pragmatic Governor who can win by being rational and decent when everyone else is spewing diarrhea out their mouths.

Let me refine that. If Michelle Obama had run against Trump, she would have won. Hillary ran a nasty and frankly lazy campaign.

Someone who can embody positivity can differentiate themselves from Trump much better than angry or faking-angry people who are pandering to SJWs.

Thing is, everything about Trump’s accomplishments (or lack thereof) and personality (or over abundance thereof) and all the rest aside, Trump is now the incumbent. That gives him a tremendous advantage. I don’t see any Democratic candidates who strike me as particularly able to overcome that.

I kinda get the sense that the Obamas are happy to enjoy their retirement and just live the good life.

I've heard Democrats from time to time since Trump took office complain "where's Obama? Why isn't he on TV every day denouncing Trump??!11"

Michelle might have a decent chance if she ran, but I don't think she wants to, and frankly I don't blame her. Let someone else who wants it more have Her their turn. Not her problem anymore.

Analysis:
1) He's got class. More than Trump and Hillary put together.
2) He didn't go stark raving mad just because Hillary lost.

How about Gov. Ralph Northam? It's looking like his calendar might be opening up soon.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Is he the traditional Democrat in blackface or the traditional Democrat in the Klan hood?

Not that the media will hold him to the same standard, of course, but I'm curious which of the two would be the greater sin?

Also, this quote by someone named Charles Fain Lehman reposted on Instapundit made me laugh:

Ralph Northam will now be kept comfortable while a discussion ensues.

I don't think he's said which one he is.

Our current Governor, Steve Sisolak, might be okay. But he has the charisma of a bowl of oatmeal, so I doubt he would win. I think the only reason he won as governor was that the Republican candidate was so disliked that even his own family campaigned against him

Holy shit, that was in 1984? And he put it in his yearbook even?

I bet his opponent wishes someone found this before the election.

I think campaigns really need to research their opponents better. Find out where they went to school and look at the yearbooks.

Everyone is joking about it and, what with Kavanaugh, destroying every copy of your past yearbooks will become a requirement for politics.

Then, again, I guess Gilespie--whatever--and his team did not expect someone to put something this mind-rottingly obvious in his own fucking yearbook. To paraphrase Francis Urquhart, he "needs to be put down. As a kindness."

Oprah WInfrey's spiritual advisor. Sounds like a joke Abdul would make but she's real and running for president.

A new age guru is running for president? That’s 2019 in a nutshell
Marianne Williamson is the author of new-age books such as A Woman’s Worth and A Course in Weight Loss: 21 Spiritual Lessons for Surrendering Your Weight Forever. She is Oprah Winfrey’s spiritual guide. She has called herself a “bitch for God.” Oh, and she also wants to be president of the United States. Her campaign for the 2020 Democratic nomination is, she says, for people who “want to dig deeper into the questions we face as a nation.”
