An interesting question to Democrats would be, "if I told you Republicans would win the presidential in 2020 but it wouldnt be Trump, who would you want it to be?"

Trump has "set a standard" for presidents "that most mortals won't be able to meet. He out-works them, he out-thinks, he is remarkably resourceful, he's bright, his judgment is second to none."

Of course they match

Its anti-Trump

You have to stop.

It's not "anti-Trump." There are policies that each candidate supports that are independent of Trump's existence - or, perhaps, more to the point, Trump is anti-Obama.

That you cannot be bothered to look at the policies of the Democratic Party's candidates for the presidency only means that you are ignorant (or continuing to troll).

That you cannot be bothered to look at the differences among the candidates doesn't mean there aren't any, even if there are few.

The questions are insufficiently nuanced to capture the gaps in how they feel about climate change action beyond nuclear power. The gradations on how to handle pre-k education are lost on the questionaires. Pro-choice vs. pro-life is way too broad. Etc.

But Klobuchar is not especially moderate as the Democratic Party goes, even if she is hardly far left by any other standard. I'm to the left of any of the candidates, including those who have dropped out.

Not that interesting. Of those declared, I would take Weld in a heartbeat.

I align with Kasich at 28% and Romney at 24%. Ron Paul and Mark Sanford are at 20%. Weld wasn't on their list for some reason, but I am pretty comfortable with my position.

Quote
  WASHINGTON (AP) — The New York Times has endorsed not one but two candidates for the Democratic nomination for president, Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar from the party’s moderate wing and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren from the progressive wing.

The paper said Sunday it had chosen the two most effective candidates from the moderate and progressive sides of the party — without stating a preference for either approach. It praised Warren as “a gifted story teller” and Klobuchar as “the very definition” of Midwestern charisma and grit.

People finally catching up with Klobucharisma!

The 2016 GOP field was entirely populated by kooks, crooks, and slimy grifters.

Warren would make a fine 2020 GOP nominee if the party could find its moral compass and return to its roots. Weld would be a good choice if they only wanted to fake it.

Trump staffing decisions are remarkably consistent.
