I met Tom Cotton once or twice. He's "meaner than a snake and smarter than you are".

So Ted Cruz but whiter?

Funnily enough, I think Joaquin would be a better candidate. Maybe Julian runs in 2024 to pave the way for Joaquin in 2028?

Paul Laxalt will likely not be alive in 2020. No use courting his endorsement Tongue

Former MLB pitcher Curt Schilling says he plans to run for president (presumably as a Republican) in 2020 or 2024:

Schilling said during a Facebook exchange that he was planning to run for political office in the near future. On wrote, "I am going to run soon" and when asked for more details by a commenter, Schilling said "state office first, white house in eight years" followed by "or four if some amazing illegal event this country elects another Clinton."


Well, he's a racist bigot, so it makes sense.

Im am THE most conservative person I know, but I am so upset of habit years of one party rule in the white that I am willing to support someone as moderate as Paul Ryan is it means we can have a landslide victory once again....of course I prefer Rand Paul

From a few minutes of browsing Wikipedia:

-In 2010, Ryan described himself as being "as pro-life as a person gets"

-During Ryan's 1998 campaign for Congress, he "expressed his willingness to let states criminally prosecute women who have abortions,"

-Ryan opposes same-sex marriage, opposed the repeal of the don't ask, don't tell policy, voted against same-sex couples adopting children in Washington D.C., and voted against a bill that would expand federal hate crime laws to cover offenses based on a victim's sexual orientation .

-Ryan, who owns a rifle and a shotgun, is an NRA member, has received an "A" rating from the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action and has been endorsed by the organization every cycle he has been in Congress.

-He also voted to withdraw federal funding of NPR.

"moderate"

de Blasio is definitely under hyped for 2020.

I don't even know if he'll be my mayor 14 months from now

Not sure if this was posted here earlier, but Mother Jones lists 11 dems who could defeat Trump:

http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2016/11/democrats-defeat-trump-president-2020

Warren
Kaine (already out)
Klobuchar
Gillibrand
Harris
Duckworth
Booker
O'Malley
(Chris) Murphy
Hickenlooper
Michelle Obama (already out)

A list that includes Michelle Obama, Hickenlooper, and O'Malley but not Sherrod Brown is a bad list

There are both Cory Booker 2020 and Elizabeth Warren 2020 Facebook pages:

https://www.facebook.com/PresidentCoryBooker/
https://www.facebook.com/VoteforElizabethWarren/


Looks like this page is actually more active than either of those two:

https://www.facebook.com/tulsi2020/


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?

That's what happens when you get an Islamophobic Blue Dog from a deep (Atlas) red state

Franken says he will not run for president in 2020:

https://www.yahoo.com/tv/sen-al-franken-rejects-2020-presidential-run-exclusive-221600004.html

Quote
The office of the “Saturday Night Live” veteran-turned-Minnesota senator ruled out a presidential run in response to the creation of a Super PAC, Draft Al Franken 2020. It drew attention from the congressional newspaper The Hill, among other outlets.

“Sen. Franken is not going to run for President in 2020,” Franken’s office said in a statement. “He will, however, spend the next several years fighting on behalf of Minnesota families — working on issues like income inequality, education, college affordability, health care, equal rights, and on behalf of consumers and small businesses.”


NOOOOOOO
