This is mainly directed at Democrats, but all views are welcome.

I’m not really thinking of the Dem primaries, but rather the kind of candidate they will have to run in 2020 to beat Trump. Let’s face it – 1/3rd of the electorate, Trump’s base, will vote for him for sure unless something cataclysmic happens. Dems will need someone who is everything that Trump is not, to have a realistic chance of carrying the majority of the remaining 2/3rd.

Which is why I’m not thrilled with the folks signed up so far. I think anyone too far left, the progressive bunch, will alienate the middle and turn off the moderates, with zero chance of attracting moderate republicans. You need somebody who’s a left leaning moderate to carry most of this spectrum.

Tulsi Gabbard – Almost a fruitcake, and I doubt America is ready for a Hindu president;

Kamala Harris – Probably a warm and engaging person, but her prosecutorial tone when talking of serious stuff is rather dismaying;

Elizabeth Harris – Cold, unlikable, shrill, far left, cannot relate to most folks. Definitely has a likeability problem, along with the ridiculous DNA test that did more damage than good;

Biden – Qualified, but unexciting to the point of being boring;

Bloomberg – Same as Biden. I doubt if his pet issues of gun control and the environment will be inspiring enough to get him elected. This election will be about kitchen-table issues.

Which brings us to Beto. He’s left of center, articulate, thoughtful, intellectual and inspiring.

Thoughts??
