Question: Why Walter Reed?

I thought the feds were closing Walter Reed, and that Bethesda Naval Hospital was where Presidents got their medicine on? I obviously missed something.

Do you want HRC to enter the 2020 race for the nomination?

I have to say the BBC comment at least sounds like she is sending up a trial balloon on entering.

Question #1: When is it actually too late to jump into these primaries?

Question #2: Patrick and Bloomberg are considering throwing their hats in the ring. What do either of them bring that other candidates have not brought already?

Question #3: This is for the undecided among us (you can answer and have a stated preference, though - I'm not the DU police): Who might you want to see running that is not running now?

Question #4: What drives your thought process most on a candidate right now: a) My main priority is a candidate that holds policy positions that I share; b) My main priority is a candidate that will defeat Donald Trump

Apropos of nothing: I had occasion to drive from the Midwest to Florida and back last week. I'd observe the following: a) I saw towns (Cairo, IL sticks out in my mind) that are in economic wreckage against a backdrop of alleged expansion; b) I saw a lot of Trump 2020 bumper stickers in Florida, so there is clearly work to be done; c) I saw flooding along the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. Whether you want to think of it in terms of climate change or infrastructure, there is work to be done; d) No matter where you travel, legacy radio (AM/FM) has become dominated not only by right wing talk, but also by Christian programming - both straight preaching and Christian themed music. I'm not sure what to make of all of it, but we seem oddly disconnected to one another in this nation.

...but I digress.
