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:

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

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
