    I'd never heard anything about Brown prior to this year, so that's a bad sign if you put any stock into name recognition. Especially when it comes to old, white men.

    Cuomo it is; someone hand me the ipecac.

    I think Jerry Brown is 80 right now, which would make him 83 come election day in 2020. IIRC Trump is the oldest elected President at 70 (a few months older than Ronbo).

    That's Jerry Brown. This is Sherrod Brown who AFAIK has never banged Linda Ronstadt.

    My money is on Kamala, even though she's probably already found a way to make sworn enemies with the Roses over some sort of baked good.

    Hmm... not sure I follow your logic. If the Dems nominated the right candidate there would be a democrat in the White House. Or do you think that no democrat could have won?

    She was the right one since she was the most qualified of the D candidates. She couldn't overcome sexism and a "vast right wing conspiracy"

    Obama and his inner circle are big fans, unsurprisingly. Both black, both went to Harvard (sucks!), both high flying attorneys with political aspirations.

    Being an MD at Bain is going to open him up to easy attacks about being a bankster. Here's the spin:

    Patrick currently serves as a Managing Director of Bain Capital Double Impact, where he focuses on investments that deliver both a competitive financial return and significant positive social impact.

    So your goal is not to pick someone who wins? Because if you wanted someone to win, I'm not sure how you can argue that she was the right candidate.

    No achievements. Will appeal on identity but lose it all back and more on Bain. A zero.

    Bingo. This generation might not see a more qualified candidate and I don't think we would have seen a better back-to-back duo than Obama and Clinton.

    And yet we didn't see an Obama / Clinton back to back duo.
