The FB page "Run Tulsi Run" is extremely active. Many of the commenters are anti-Hillary, pro-Bernie, and even pro-Trump. I have to admit that I like Gabbard but it is a really, really oddball mix on that page.

Are any of these actually associated with a PAC or with a broader movement?

No, these are just freelancers, AFAIK.

Though Kaine has said he’s not running for prez in 2020, it’s too early for us to take such denials to the bank.  So it’s worth flagging this:

Apparently, there are multiple "Draft Michelle Obama" PACs out there now:

Meanwhile, Barack says she's never going to run (reiterating her own previous comments on the matter):

Im with the go big guys Castro I think could be the perfect counter to Trump. He is young, came from a poor background, and as the article pointed out has WAY more experience prior to office than the man he would run against

If Joaquin Castro runs for Mayor, or becomes the VP nominee, couldn't Julian Castro run for Joaquin's House seat?

Not sure why a trip to Iowa would help one get elected DNC Chair.  Maybe he is hoping to run for prez, but in 2024 or 2028, after he wins some other office first.  Never too early to start laying the groundwork for 2028.  Tongue

Rep. Xavier Becerra will be appointed California Attorney General by Gov. Jerry Brown. Takes him out of Washington and probably forecloses presidential ambitions for 2020...I've always thought he had them.

He can try, but it's not like the country will ever want an ultra-partisan dem like him.

I will continue to say I can't believe he would rule it out four years out. If anyone would get my vote who is a progressive, it would be him.

Tulsi Gabbard is too young to run in 2020. She could be a good candidate for the democrats in 2024 if they lose in 2020. I think she could unite the far-left Bernie supporters with moderates for a national coalition, unlike an Elizabeth Warren or a Tim Kaine. The democrats' best chance in 2020 is probably a moderate governor like Bullock (D-MT), especially against Trump. If the GOP nominates an establishment candidate like Paul Ryan, they'd be fine with a left-wing anti-establishment pick. Keep in mind that if the GOP isn't renominating Trump, it probably means republicans are in turmoil and going to lose no matter what.

I'm still hoping that Trump will pick Tulsi for secretary of state. On matter like opposing regime change and favoring working relations with Russia, they are quite similar (unlike war hawk Romney who wants to bring back the Cold War). She also acknowledges that we are at war with ISLAMIC terrorists and has criticized her party for failing to use the aforementioned word. Might not play well with some on the left, but four years as secretary of state could give her good experience to base her candidacy off of (assuming they aren't filled with disaster and scandal like Hillary's were).

If anyone thinks that that Franken statement is definitive, just remember:

"I can unequivocally say I will not be running for national office in four years"

Lots of candidates use the loophole of saying they are "not running for president" meaning they will focus on their current job and helping their constituents... until such time that they run for president three years down the road.
