Pence and Santorum, among others, spoke at the Values Voters Summit this weekend:

I know for a fact that Santorum wants to be president badly and that he was hoping to get nominated at a contested convention this year.

Well yeah, that's probably why he ran twice.

If Democrats choose to clear the field for Cuomo, they deserve 4 more years of Trump.

That's a classic nondenial denial line. She's definitely going to consider it, but seems like someone that may defer to other candidates should certain ones get in.

Hmm, I don't see her running for President in 2020 if she's just starting a first term as Governor.

Lol sure. Also, it's not fair at all to say Clinton is the one raising doubts about the election's legitimacy.

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"

Audio of Biden:

It sounds half joking, half serious to me.

^Malloy was also speaking to a bunch of state delegations at the DNC this year. I was at North Carolina's delegate breakfast one morning, and when he walked in he sat right next to me. We got to talk for a bit.

#Malloy2020
I'm surprised because he seems like a major dick. Lindsey Graham was a real dick when I met him.

He's really nice in person. I've met him a few times.

O'Malley returning to Iowa:

Quote
A familiar face for Iowans will make one last appearance in the state before 2016 ends. Martin O’Malley plans on making a trip to Davenport on December 18 to lend a hand to Democrat Jim Lykam in the special election for the vacant state senate seat.

This will be O’Malley’s seventh trip to Iowa since the Iowa Caucus. O’Malley traveled the country extensively in support of Hillary Clinton after it was clear she would be the nominee in mid-summer. He headlined many fundraisers and volunteer events for the Clinton campaign and legislative Democrats in Iowa during the summer and fall, including for some of his supporters from the presidential campaign.

"Murphy Pours Cold Water on 'Draft Murphy' Movement"

Quote
A college student's effort to draft Chris Murphy to run for president in 2020 is getting a cool reception from the would-be candidate.

Asked if he would consider a bid, Murphy said, "no, I wouldn't."

The freshman Democratic senator told reporters at a press conference at the state Capitol Tuesday morning that his first decision is whether to run for reelection in two years.

"This job to me is the honor of a lifetime and my intentions are only to be a great United States senator from Connecticut,'' Murphy said.

I like Murphy a lot but I don't think he'd make a good candidate.

I think he'd make for a very good attack dog VP.

Just wait until after the Democratic primary for NH Gov in 2018. Suddenly it will seem like the most important governorship in the country.

Stefany Shaheen or Ann Kuster for president?

Nah as in all the potential Dem candidates will be stopping by. Though, Shaheen does have certain...qualities...that would make her more likely to win nationwide than someone like Kuster.

And now Mark Zuckerberg....

http://www.newsweek.com/mark-zuckerberg-president-2020-facebook-white-house-538386?rx=us

Quote
Zuckerberg has regularly publicized his New Year’s resolutions in recent years—learning Mandarin, running 365 miles, reading 25 books—and 2017’s involves doing a tour of the U.S. with the stated aim of making “the most positive impact as the world enters an important new period.”

The 32-year-old billionaire hopes by the end of the year to have visited and met people in every U.S. state. The pledge comes after court documents revealed that Zuckerberg has made provisions to keep control of Facebook if he works for the government, leading to speculation that he plans to someday run for president.


With $49.3 Billion and direct control of one of the largest social media platforms, he'd certainly have some advantages. Maybe he would run as an Independent, since he's apparently donated money to Booker, Schumer, and Pelosi, but also Boehner, Ryan, Rubio, and Hatch. He certainly has the money necessary to self-fund an Indy run.

Malloy isn't going to run for anything anytime soon. If he runs for Governor again, which I really doubt he will, he would probably face a primary challenge. If he survived that, he'd probably hand the state to a Republican.

How so? Every Senator's trying to get on the Sunday morning circuit; by that standard, Chris Murphy will also be running

Booker has made other moves indicating it as well, and has been openly coy about a run in a very candidate-like manner, while Murphy's people have been dismissive on an occasion.
