1. Oh, Christ, not this again.

First off, while I don't know Al Gore personally, I think I can safely say he is never going to run again.

Nor should any other Democrat who is currently over the age of 60. What we need more than anything are younger Democrats, preferably Millennials, but the unfairly maligned Gen Xers likewise deserve a chance.

The kind of thinking that keeps on promoting all these old Democrats would summarily dismiss the possibility of a Barack Obama candidacy in 2020, had he not already served two terms and is ineligible to run again.

I prefer a bit more wisdom.

8. Okay, the Millennials are a bit young to be running for President.

But no Boomers, please. We've had our day and it's time to turn the reins of power over.

And that's with all due respect to many of those whom I greatly admire and respect and am sorry they didn't get a chance to be President.

4. I suggest we concentrate on 2018...

...if we can tip the balance of power in the House and Senate in 2018, we have a better chance of slowing down or stopping the Republicon agenda in its tracks...

9. Apparently.

The White House Physician is going to need to be a geriatrician of some people get their way.

Seriously, folks, there are genuine issues with having people in power too long, or at too old an age.

12. My sentimental pick is Michelle Obama.

 

More realistic would be either Gavin Newsom or Kirsten Gillibrand.

13. Nice names

 

But Franken would be a great choice. He would own debates.

14. Right now, I don't give a shit about 2020.

We need to get through 2018 first.
