I could see some who ran this time trying again, but what are some names that could run that didn't run this time?

Of big names who were expected to run this time, Sherrod Brown. Otherwise, expect some fresh new Democrats elected next year or in 2022. Maybe Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

If Michelle Obama runs, I could easily see her as the nominee. Besides her, I think Oprah, all four squad members (AOC, Omar, Tlaib, Pressley), Chelsea Clinton, and some of the 2020 candidates like Yang, Tulsi, Beto, Pete, and Warren. I also predict a Shaun King candidacy but it may not be as likely as the rest.

AOC will be the nominee.

Yang. Over the next four years candidacies that rely on the internet will be more successful and the issues Yang focuses on will become more pertinent.

-Sherrod Brown, Buttigieg, and (especially if she isn't the nominee in 2020) Warren.

-Stacey Abrams if she can win election to something (probably governor).

-Gavin Newsom, Harris, or some other California candidate will probably run.

-Anyone who does anything notable in TX

-Some currently relatively unknown governors like Gretchen Whitmer, Jared Polis, or Michelle Lujan Grisham

I suspect Democrats would want someone younger both to follow an elderly president they despise, and in the aftermath of two failed elderly candidates (There's also a tradition of younger candidates winning; see JFK, Bill Clinton, Barack Obama and even 52 year old Jimmy Carter.)

Some potential contenders.

Pete Buttigieg- Has emerged from the 2020 primary with a higher profile. He'll still have the resume problem.
Joe Kennedy III- Has a better than even shot of being the party's youngest Senator and coming from the big state next to New Hampshire; can appeal to both older and younger voters.)
Andy Beshear- A young governor from a very conservative state who hasn't had to take positions that the base would hate.
Kirsten Sinema- She's made a conscious decision to keep a low national profile and focus on what's popular in her state. She could very easily become a national figure.
The running mate- In the event, Biden or Warren is the nominee, they'll probably have a running mate who is younger and adds some kind of diversity. That person could currently be in House leadership or a former cabinet official, but they will have a much higher profile and can use it as a launching pad for the top of the ticket.
Stacey Abrams- With Booker and Harris bombing in the presidential campaign this cycle, I could see Abrams making a play for the people who want to vote for an Obama type next cycle, after a few years developing a national profile as a voting rights activist.
AOC- It's entirely possible she'll run for President with her high profile in Congress. I don't think she'd win but she could be part of the field.
Newsom- He might run to show off liberal leadership, as one of the most prominent Governors.
