If former Vice President Joe Biden implodes again like he did in 1988 and 2008, could former Oklahoma Gov. Brad Henry, a white moderate, save the Democratic Party?

I've previously stated my position that Heath Shuler is the Democratic Party's best chance of victory in 2020, but Henry might be good too. Does he have the fighting energy that the nominee needs to have in order to beat Trump? Shuler has it.

Do you think Henry can be a last minute dark horse?

Yeah, this map is very realistic and plausible IMO. Henry has that <3Populist appeal that will win over voters in states like Oklahoma and Missouri.

Henry is young, he is 55.

Henry-Harris would be a good ticket, since Henry will need black voters.

Shuler could beat Tillis for Senate.

Henry would be a good dark horse. He has no baggage.

If former Vice President Joe Biden implodes again like he did in 1988 and 2008, could former Florida Gov. Wayne Mixson, a white moderate, save the Democratic Party?

No.

It should be a Steve Beshear/Henry ticket. Wins all 50 states and over 60% of the vote in Kentucky and Oklahoma.

Can't believe nobody's thought about recruiting the desiccated body of Robert Byrd and winning West Virginia on a landslide?

Ha, he would not win TX, KS, OK, MO, IA, or OH, those should all be Republican

Make FL, AZ Democratic

A democrat that can win all of Oklahoma's counties except for three can win a GE. The problem is he has no chance in a primary.

His lack of appeal in Oklahoma's panhandle is troubling tho. Democrats in disarray!

The OK panhandle would vote for a literal child if it said "taxes nono" over a democrat.

This comment is pretty dumb, really.

Coalitions have changed dramatically since 2006, and someone who can win over rural whites would probably lose the election by turning off suburbanites and making minority turnout plummet... on top of this, he would only do a little bit better with rural whites than a generic D, most of these voters are not going to vote for a Democrat under any circumstances. compare how Phil Bredesen did in the 2002 or 2006 Gubernatorial elections to how he did in the 2018 Senate election.
