    Horse race polls at this stage are largely an exercise in name recognition and are not at all predictive of the eventual nominee. For example, Joe Lieberman was leading the polls for the Democratic nomination at this point in 2003, and Scott Walker and Marco Rubio were leading the Republicans in May 2015.

    Yeah kinda disappointing that she has no shot.

    She’s too moderate and won’t pander to the far left.

    Basically the democratic version of Jeb Bush.

    Yeah, who do the GOP like again? Point taken, but your high-horse is underground.

    trump is less of a war monger than Obama, so that it's basically a compliment , Obama turned far too many of you into neocons and you can't see it.

    I meant that she's like Trump in that she doesn't appear to have any firm convictions, other than an apparent willingness to kiss up to murderous dictators. That isn't a compliment.

    So geopolitics is messy - the US has been a dick, is a dick, and will probably continue to be so. Messy world and high-stakes. Unfortunate, but pragmatic. In Domestic Politics, however, there is no inherent reason to be a dick - and Trump is so much more than his predecessors. To me, therein lies a big difference. We might never win a war in the ME, but we could solve Healthcare.

    I'm sure you are referring to diversity of thought, right?

    I am. I'm going to pencil her in and encourage others to do so. A 2020 rematch would be worth its weight in entertainment gold. The debates would be priceless.

    Anyhow, I still like Buttigieg. I also like Warren, at least for actually putting forward concrete proposals. Yet, I can deal with Biden - and with the right VP choice he probably has the best shot at winning (for now). We still have some time to go...(as an aside, 24hr news would love a President Biden)

    Fair enough.

    Bernie Sanders is afraid to call Nicolás Maduro what he is, and Sanders is second on this list. Let’s not pretend like the Dems care that much about who panders to which murderous dictator.

    I'm a Democrat and I don't care about the race or gender of the candidates. :confused:

    Yep. Honestly, one could make the entertainment argument for almost any matchup. Our politicians have become caricatures of serious people. They have become the leadership equivalent of click bate. Sad really.
