Hey Dems, I’m getting confused


Yep. Surprise. I’m getting (even more) confused … by all the Democrats running for president in 2020. I’ve already lost track of how many there are. And most of them are relatively unknown to me. I might have heard their names, but their positions on issues and where they’re from … I couldn’t tell you offhand. I know Bernie Sanders is the latest to join the fray, again, and further muddy the waters. As for the guy in the cartoon — Buttigieg — I saw him on late night last week, but I’ve already forgotten how to pronounce his name or where he’s from. About all I recall is that he looked relatively young and sounded rational.

We haven’t heard from Joe Biden yet. He was my early favorite but I worry now about his age vs all those younger candidates. And I’m afraid Liz Warren has hamstrung herself with that Native American thing. There are two here in Colorado who might jump in — former governor Hickenlooper and current Sen. Michael Bennet (that one “t” always looks wrong to me, but hey, it’s his name). I’d be happy with either but doubt either has a chance.

And then there’s whozit, the billionaire, who wants to run as an independent. Just what we need to beat Trump, another egotistical billionaire with zero experience in government. Even worse, he thinks he can win as an independent, and obviously doesn’t care that he’ll be splitting the Democratic vote.

I can’t speak for anyone else, but this many candidates makes me nervous. They’ll sort themselves out eventually, and the earlier the better, but right now I’m really concerned. Dems need to be strong and unified. But it seems to me they are splintering more and more and moving too far left. (For those who want labels, I’m an unaffiliated centrist.)

Frankly, I’m afraid the Dems are beginning to look like this:

… and I sure don’t want another clown in the White House.

  1. If the dems don’t get it together soon, they’ll snatch defeat from victory and we’ll have a cheeto pres for 4 more years.

  2. I like Sherrod Brown. Seems pretty down-to-earth and I love his wife.

  3. I’d vote for anyone over trump, but hope that Mueller can make a case to more people of how corrupt trump is, I’m afraid is dimming. And Barr and /or Whitaker will see to that as well. The game is rigged.

  4. Perhaps if Madam Speaker threw her hat into the ring the others would all disappear, She’s standing up well against the occupant of the O.O; She seems a pretty damned fine speaker and politician to me, and I’d think she’d whack you know who in any Presidential debate

  5. OMG. I completely agree. They’re all so confident that trump can be beaten in 2020 – which I think they’re right so long as the candidate is worth it. But they better be prepared from trumps rhetoric and lies b/c you know he’ll lambaste whoever the Democratic candidate is. I just keep hoping he’ll have a heart attack or some serious health problem that will impede him from running in 2020. Yes, he brings the worst out in me — I actually hope his health gets worse.
