Look who the Dems put in charge of the FCC: Thomas Wheeler. He's the guy who, right now, is deciding net neutrality. Former job? Lobbyist for the cable industry.

I hate blue dogs/corporatists dems as much as the next liberal,but I can't sit by and watch a rethug get elected cause I sat home and didn't vote. Not that my one vote will be the deciding vote in an election.

I say Warren. The last time we elected a Harvard Law Professor it worked out so well for us.

Cuomo is not liberal enough so my choice would be between Kristen Gillibrand and Martin O'Malley.

OK I vote for LABF!!!

My rising stars for 2024 after another 8 years of Dem rule is Gavin Newsome and Elizabeth Warren. They will be a power couple.
Elizabeth Warren is an idiot. She runs her mouth on things she clearly doesn't know or understand. starting with her stance on Student loans. The only person I would vote for on this list is Andrew.

So far Liz Warren and Bernie Sanders lead the pack. And these kids like to call most conservatives fringe lunatics.

They are both right in the center of the the FDR/JFK progressive tradition. The fact you righties consider them "fringe" just shows how extremist the Right has become.

Age was an issue for Reagan, Dole, and McCain. It will be an issue for Hillary too.

I'm not saying it won't be an issue,but age wasn't the downfall of dole and McCain in their campaigns. It obviously wasn't with Reagan.

There would be no difference. One of the most catastrophic things to ever happen to the working man in America, and progressivism in general, was the election of Bubba Clinton. Hillary would be more of the same. The Clintons serve Wall Street.

So what is your solution? I'm not going to stay home & not vote. I would love a warren or sanders presidency but I know it isn't going to happen.

Look at the Ryan budget. You get a Republican you get that budget. No way Hillary goes that way.

Also there would be environmental laws repealed, Public schools, IRS, Department of Housing, Education would all be scrapped. It is so much bigger than just the two candidates. Plus they would gut green energy and close down abortion centers. In their ever lasting quest to keep the dark people from voting.They would also have the go ahead to pass even more strict voter suppression laws.

There is a HUGE differance.

If Evan Bayh came out of retirement, I would strongly consider voting for him. Couldn't vote for anyone on this list.

They always threaten to scrap something to get elected, but it never happens. Reagan had the best chance to scrap the Dept of Education when it was brand new and half the people were still against it. It was part of his platform, but he changed his mind when he had the power. Then it more than doubled under Dubya's watch. It's here to stay. They never scrap anything. Everything just grows bigger under the establishment.

The one that should run but won't is Senator Mark Warner of Va. Very strong candidate and has experience as executive (Gov of VA), and the endorsement of former Republican senator Jim Warner (no relation).

Martin O'Malley would be solid candidate but won't get the votes.

That list is a who's who of morons and liars. For Warren to even be mentioned is a joke in itself. People supposedly want change, but support a liar about their own ancestry. Stupid.

They may not scrap it but they weaken the hell out of it when it needs to be strengthened.

I agree but you have to admit this is a different brand of conservatives. Reagan would be a democrat today if he ran.

I like O'Malley as he seems more liberal. Warner seems a little too far right for me. He is as probable far right as Hillary.

Yeah,Warner's a conservative. Warner would never make it out of a primary.

This is getting pretty rich.

First I'm told that Bernie Sanders is pretty much right in line with Mr "Ask Not What Your Country Can Do For You."

Now I'm hearing that the guy who said:

"The nine most terrifying words in the English language are, 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"

Would be happily signing Bernie's legislation.
