I'd consider voting for Tulsi Gabbard.

Any objections in particular? I think in terms of personality, he's a fantastic choice. In terms of policy, I admit I still need to learn more, but there's multiple candidates I like already.

You can like her or not, but she did say she wasn't running unless she was somehow encouraged strongly by younger voters.

Which isn't likely, so I don't see what's wrong with her comments on this matter.

Preferably they will hate the flag, military, law enforcement, border enforcement, working people or anyone with a blue collar job. If they are willing to funnel money to terrorist and hang out with dictators and support anti-American views and weaponized government departments against their political opponents they will have a good chance to be nominated. Criminals are encouraged to apply.
I think that is exactly what it will be. A white, male Christian... at least moderately so.

Maybe Jewish, maybe... but, not an atheist or anything.

I think the running mate will be a woman, a minority, or both.

This is what they will ultimately do to win back voters.

She might be the VP nominee if she retains her popularity.

I would like to think that the POTUS would earn it, but alas, neither of us are getting what we want here, are we?

And, btw? I don't mod this particular forum. I totally respect your Relationship, though, so if you feel inclined to discuss it over there, rest assured I'll be quite gracious.

I'm a woman. Feel free to refer to me as "she."

And, yes... I am a regular poster on P&OC.

I do hate Trump, but he totally earned it decades ago and he's only gone downhill since he was elected.

His fault, not mine.

I know how the forum works. I am just flabbergasted by it, really.

I guess this looks especially clear when their opponent is President Trump, the biggest personality in the world, maybe in world history.
It is a huge hurdle for the Democrats in 2020, because President Trump takes all the media attention away from the small personalities.
Only serious competitor in the communications dept vs Trump is ........hmmmmm.......not going to say as this one person could be the most surprising dark horse in 2020, if that person was ever nominated. Just per chance , they were nominated , it would be some concern to Trump. Not a shoe in by an stretch, but the only real threat to Trump.
