*sigh* I miss the days when I thought Gillibrand would be the best Dem candidate in 2016/2020. How naive I was.

Klobuchar is interesting, though. She strikes me as a 2008 Chris Dodd type; someone who would run just to get their profile up enough to possibly make the VP shortlist.

Kamala Harris has started emailing her subscribers a survey about topics in the country, at the end asking for a donation and thanks you for "standing up to Trump".

Considering she isn't up for reelection until 2022, Kamala 2020 is all but confirmed at this point.

Klobuchar has the most upside she keeps MN safe and is a great fit for WI/IA, geographically she is the best candidate. The problem is she is so boring and bland it will be hard for her to make it thru the primary.

There is nothing to say WI or Iowa people care for Klobuchar. Even Hillary originally is from Illinois right. By this logic Michelle Bachmann will win the Mid-west & Trump would win NY. No1 cares where Klobuchar is from. The only state which Klobuchar brings in play so far is Minnesota where she is an elected Senator. Beyond that, wait for the debates & then the polls.

Anyways, Bernie news (He is going to Michigan) -

U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders, the Vermont congressman who won Michigan's presidential primary in 2016, will join U.S. Rep. John Conyers in Detroit on Aug. 22 for a town hall meeting on health care and jobs. The Detroit Democrat said the town hall will be held at 7 p.m. at Fellowship Chapel Church, 7707 W. Outer Drive in Detroit.

Yet another CEO in the mix for prez?:

http://www.hitc.com/en-gb/2017/08/04/ft-top-firm-ceo-said-may-run-for-president-in-2020/

Quote
Jamie Dimon, chief executive of US investment banking giant JPMorgan Chase, is a Democrat. Former colleagues believe he might throw his hat into the ring to become the next leader. One former JPMorgan senior manager recently let slip to the newspaper that he was convinced Dimon would run for president in 2020.

Here is this week's #2020Vision column:

http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/11/politics/2020-vision-iowa-elizabeth-warren-netroots/

Not much new there that we haven't already discussed here, except this:

Quote
There have been "New Democrats" and "Blue Dogs." This week, a new center-left group — called New Democracy — launched with a slate of mayors, governors and lawmakers aiming to steer the party in a pragmatic direction and win back some right-leaning areas.

The 2020 prospects involved in the launch: Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Delaney, the insanely early entrant into the Democratic presidential race.

Castro won't talk about whether his new PAC means anything re: presidential ambitions:

At least for now, Castro is declining to speak to any media about the new PAC and whether it’s a launching pad for a presidential run in 2020.

Tom Steyer mulling a political run:

http://www.cnn.com/2017/08/12/politics/tom-steyer-california-governor-president-trump/index.html

Quote
Tom Steyer, the billionaire environmentalist and Democratic mega-donor, says he is considering a run for political office -- and that he sees the United States in a "complete crisis, honestly," under President Donald Trump.

Steyer, who has pumped more than $160 million into Democratic politics through his NextGen America group in the last two election cycles, didn't rule out a run for California governor in 2018 or for the presidency in 2020.

Quote
"It's not a question of, what is the biggest thing I can do? It's, how can I make the biggest difference from what would otherwise happen?" he said. "And I honestly haven't figured it out, but I think we've spent a lot of time on it, and I think I still have some time to make up my mind."

Ewwwwwww.

There's only one mayor I support for president, and he's about 3,000 miles west of that and slow jamming every time the 101 closes down. (I fully acknowledge the fact that even if he does run, I may be one of his only supporters.)

From that story:

Quote
Mayor de Blasio is putting out feelers to run for president, spreading whispers that Bernie Sanders, 75, and Elizabeth Warren, 68, are too old, sources say.

De Blasio, 56, will claim he’s the rightful standard bearer for the progressive wing of the Democratic party.

“He thinks he’s going to coast to re-election victory,” one Dem told me. “His people are sending out overtures asking where he should go next and whom he should meet on a national level.”

But the best part:

Quote
“He thinks he’s the inheritor of the Warren and Sanders legacy,” said a Democratic power broker, “but no one told Warren and Sanders they were dead.”

Yeah, we're not really looking for some former Hillary campaign manager who went to Iowa last year to campaign for her in the Presidential primary.

Hickenlooper's latest non-denial:

http://denver.cbslocal.com/2017/08/14/john-hickenlooper-health-care/

Quote
Hickenlooper did admit he is “not” taking his name off the presidential list for 2020 although he says his team is focused working on a workforce training so that Colorado can be the “healthiest state in America.”

He says he does not want to get “distracted” from that.

Hickenlooper's running, and will get 4% of the vote in Iowa.
