Pence/Huckabee

But 2024.

But there may be better top of ticket options.

Like any Democrat, from Jimmy Carter to AOC.

Even Uncle Joe or Bernie or Tulsi.

A Dem for top of the Republican ticket?

They're better choices than any of the GOP members would be.

Why would she not be your desired candidate?

Answer like "can't beat Trump" is fine.

If elected, she would be 3 years younger than the youngest previous president. I don't believe that's going to happen.

She has never run in a competitive race - her seat has never been won by the GOP. I don't think she would know what to do with a tight race.

I find her answers to some key questions leave me unenthused.

And the sexist reactions to a woman's running have not gone away.

OK, so that narrows it down.

You want a man to win the primary.

Yeah, I can see you backing Booker or Behto.

You do have a hard time getting people's names straight. I suppose that explains why you spell yours with so many iii in a row.

I can't see supporting Beto, Biden, or Bernie. Booker I have doubts about, but not as many as with the other three. Buttigieg is on the young (roughly Gabbard's age) and inexperienced side, but we will see him more down the road. He has a lot of promise.

No guys who don't have a B leading their last or first names are permitted to enter. DiBlasio (Bill) could join in, but he has terrible numbers - got 20 people at an event in NH! Inslee, Delaney, Moulton, and many others are out. No "B" in their initials. Bloomberg could have run, but oh well! Gore, Carter, and Dukakis fail on the B count.

The women are not restricted the same way. They can use any letters they want. Gillibrand and Gabbard are pushing for a G requirement, but I don't think two names will do it. Kamala and Klobuchar want it to be a K restriction; Kirsten could go along with that. EW's not concerned.

You may think that I have no plan, Kiiid, but clearly Senator Michael Bennett (D-CO) got the memo. He's planning his formal announcment soon, understanding that he has the requisite "B" name.

Marco Rubio of Florida as President, with Gordon Smith of Oregon as Vice President.

They can save the agriculture industry in the USA, and they would be good for America.

Salute,

Tony V.

Marco Rubio (a) is not running, (b) has shown that he is a clown, and (c) has demonstrated an unwillingness to stand up to this president in any meaningful way.
