Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, 37, announced her intention to run in a CNN interview that aired on Saturday.

Great news!

Go Tulsi!!!!

Good lookin' field. Win or lose, it's young, fresh blood for the Dems.

Anyone heard whatever happened to the previous presidential election's Repub candidates? With the exception of Romney and that embarrassment, Lindsey Graham, they're vanished. The same will not happen with this bunch.

Sheesh. I cannot believe Trump just tweeted this about Warren, a possible opponent in 2020. There is too much wrong with this for me even to get started.

If Elizabeth Warren, often referred to by me as Pocahontas did this commercial from Bighorn or Wounded Knee instead of her kitchen, with her husband dressed in full Indian garb, it would have been a smash.

Joe Biden is a political “star”? Has he ever gotten more than 1% of any vote in a presidential election? If he did I apologize but I don’t remember that he did.

This is shaping up to be the least qualified slate of potential candidates since the GOP 2016 slate, or maybe the seven dwarves, led by tallest midget Mike Dukaukis 30 years back. We'll need two runoffs - one for those with walkers, canes and cruthches, and the other for those too young to have any foreign policy experience. The DNC has failed for the past 30 years to find and nurture candidates of the callibre needed to lead the country, instead relying on outliers like Clinton, a closet Republican, and Obama, a closet institutionalist, to come to the fore. Nobody in this crowd under 50 has the experience, the network or the fund-raising ability, and nobody over 70 has the stamina.

If Tulsi Gabbard would quit the Democratic Party and run as an independent I might consider voting for her over Trump, but that won't happen. Most likely the DNC will not allow Tulsi, who is by far the best candidate in the running, to be nominated anyway.

Best line in the Elizabeth Warren beer catastrophe is, to her husband, “Thank you for being here. I’m glad you’re here” It’s their house, he’s supposed to be there!

hilarious!

Could have done without the other one that Laguna posted, I agree that gets on the unnecessarily insensitive side of things.

This is it? The Democratic dream team?

Gillibrand, Harris, Booker, Warren, Beto, Biden, Bloomberg, Gabbard? Did I miss anyone?

O'Rourke or Booker are the only two who have any chance.

Oh no. Sanders? Really? Great going hoarse on the trail again Sanders. Come on Bernie, it's over.

Warren, DNA will come back to haunt.

Biden. Hug any little girls latley?

Bloomberg. Out of touch song by Hall and Oates comes to mind.

Beto? Who?

Good luck Dems.

Do you think any of these candidates will tweet trash conspiracy theories from the National Enquirer about opponents, post unflattering photos of opponents’ spouses on the net or crack knob jokes in debates?

4 ( +4 / -0 )

Yes they will once they benefit from it and once the Dem establishment chooses the winners and losers from the 30+ candidates. Hillary played nice with Bernie, then took him out at the critical time once she was chosen by the Dems to win.

Did you see how they attacked Tulsi Gabbard? They will be eating each other alive and using any dirt they have by this time next year.

Why do you think Beto going on Oprah? That proves he is not to be attacked without consequences and has been chosen as one of the winners already.

I'm not quite sure I'm ready for the circus to start up again.

The Democrat is becoming more and more liberal socialist Party. Most of the Democrat's candidates have liberal socialism ideology. If a Democrat has won the Presidential election and then the American economy will become a guinea pig in the hands of liberal left wing socialists.

Wonder what the budget will be for the Democratic fence around the convention center to keep out democratic protestors? https://www.truthorfiction.com/did-democrats-put-up-a-four-mile-fence-around-the-dnc-in-2016/

Removal of superdelegate voting in the initial ballots should prevent the crowning of someone like last time, in theory.

I agree and on the GOP side, looks like Romney, Flake and Kasich will make a run as well.

None of these people with the slight exception of Biden are any political threat to this President.

Cory "Spartacus" Booker doesn't stand a chance so that leaves O'Rourke.

Trump vs O'Rourke...

Guess the Dems can try again in 2024!
