So far I see Trumpetts praying for Hillary or Oprah or Warren to run. They are scared to death of a moderate Democrat with nothing in their closet running since they know that if Democrats pick someone like that, Trump won't have a chance.

I don't see her as a strong national candidate. To me, she comes off as a harridan, and she is far to the left of Hillary. Of course I am biased, but I think Trump vs. Warren would be like Nixon vs. McGovern in 1972. Nixon won 49 states (and he wasn't popular); McGovern won Massachusetts and Washington DC.

In an interview she fell just short of taking credit for Trump's direction on the tariffs.

She appeared to be dipping her toes into the candidate waters.

I'd bet cash that she will indeed run. It'll go something like "after all the outpouring of support I can't turn my back on Americans...bla bla bla."

YES she will run!
I won't breathe a 'sigh of political relief' until (fingers crossed) someone other than Hillary or Elizabeth Warren is the Dem nominee for 2020.

Bernie Sanders - A card-carrying socialist from the old-school. While he will tip his hat towards the "Political correctness" and identity politics agendas that are the true core of the Democrat left agenda these days, he is not deeply passionate about any of that, and it shows. Bernie enters the 2020 race with the momentum as the most popular person in the Democrat party caucus, and should be regarded as the early favorite to win the Democrat party nomination. However, he probably won't win in it in the end, for one reason or another.

Joe Biden - A Bill Clinton unprincipled and pragmatic moderate lefty, again from the old school. He will convene the focus groups and hold his finger to the wind, much like Hillary did. He is not particularly passionate about either the Bernie Sanders socialism or the Kamala Harris race politics. He is a boob, but a nice guy at heart. He will have the full backing of the Democrat establishment, which has no qualms about playing dirty, even in their primary, and is already psychiatrically diagnosable for the extent of its collective derangement towards Donald Trump. The Democrat establishment will not be wanting to take any longshot chances in 2020. Don't be surprised if Biden wins the nomination.

Kamala Harris - A black woman who is the junior Senator from California. The Democrats have been positioning themselves as the party for darker skinned voters, and have made race politics and the constant playing of the race card the central tent-pole of what their party is all about. There are tens of millions of racist Democrat voters who literally live for this stuff. It is who they are, it is what they do. With Elizabeth Warren out of the race, Kamala will not only be equipped with the race card, but also with the gender card, as she is a woman. Stupid as it is, people on the left actually vote for candidates based solely on these criteria. If the leftist "Political correctness" and identity politics lynch mob gets whipped up sufficiently during the primaries, Harris could very certainly win the nomination for the Democrats.

If I had to make a premature early guess, it would have to be Kamala. The Democrats these days are nothing if not racists and sexists. Without that to motivate them, will they even go to the polls? I don't believe they will. It really is too early to say, but keep an eye out for Kamala Harris to win the Democrat nomination and take on Donald Trump in November 2020.
Kamala Harris is also South Asian. Her mother is from the Tamil Nadu area of India and speaks Tamil.

Some Trump followers become obsessed with Elizabeth Warren at the exact point in time that Trump discusses her. They are parrots of Trump.

A moderate would not be Progressive enough for many far left Dems.

Neither Michelle Obama or Oprah, or now Pocahantus are going to run. In fact, we don't even know with great confidence that Kamala Harris will run. However, many people think she will at least give it serious consideration, which neither Oprah or Michelle Obama appears to be inclined to do.

When she says something, the opposite is true. She will run.
