A Democratic Governor for President and a Democratic US Senator for Vice President in 2020.

2 term Governors that could run for President and win the November General Election are
Steve Bullock-MT (He could put MT into play and turn AZ into a blue state.)
Jay Inslee-WA (He has congressional experience from 1993-1995,1999-2013) He represented a rural conservative from 1993-1995 and a suburban Seattle district from 1999-2013
US Senators that could be a Vice Presidential runningmate
Tammy Baldwin-WI (She is a strong progressive from a purple state-She can help win in the Rust belt states WI,MN,MI,and PA) Baldwin also has experience serving in the US House from 1999-2013 and the US Senate since 2013. The downside with Baldwin is that Scott Walker-R could run again for a third term and could win unless Democrats nominate a top tier candidate. WI needs Ron Kind to run for Governor against Walker. If elected Governor of WI, Kind could appoint Feingold to Baldwin's US Senate seat in 2021 when Baldwin becomes Vice President. Feingold runs again for the US Senate in a 2022 special election and Kind runs for the US Senate in 2022 against Johnson.

How about a double minority ticket in 2020? Cory Booker/Julian Castro

Cory Booker and Julian Castro can help Democrats win the following battleground states.
AZ-11(194ev)
CO-9 (203ev)
FL-29 (232ev)
NV-6 (238ev)
NM-5 (243ev)
NC-15 (258ev)
VA-13 (271ev)

These are battleground states with a strong black and hispanic voting age population
Cory Booker and Julian Castro can do well in the battleground rust belt states
MI-16
MN-10
PA-20
WI-10

Cory Booker and Julian Castro have crossover appeal and could replicate and improve the Obama 2008/2012 coalition.

Tom Udall/Gary Peters ticket will help Democrats get over 270 ev winning all of the States Clinton

carried in 2016 by a double digit margin 183v plus all of the Southwestern states (AZ,CO,NV,and NM) 214ev and
VA-13 (227ev)
MN-10 (237ev)
MI-16 (253ev)
PA-20 (273ev)
WI-10 (283ev)
Udall and Peters US Senate seats are up for re-election in 2020. They can choose to not seek re-election to focus all of their attention on unseating Trump. Democrats have plenty of top tier candidates to choose from to win the NM US Senate seat
Hector Balderas or Ben Lujan and the MI US Senate Seat Jennifer Granholm or Mark Schauer . If Udall and Peters decide to run for re-election and the Presidency, Democrats are going to occupy the MI and NM governorship.

Al Franken/Sherrod Brown ticket in 2020 is a dream ticket for Democrats.

Both are strong progressives from battleground states in the Midwest.
This ticket can win all of the Clinton 2016 states plus
FL-29 (261ev)
PA-20 (281ev)
OH-18 (299ev)
MI-16 (315ev)
WI-10 (325ev)
These states except OH are states Trump won in 2016 by a less than 2 percent margin.

US Senator Gary Peters (D-MI) should be mentioned as a potential 2020 Democratic candidate.

He is a United States Senator from MI- a battleground state in the Midwest.
He got elected to the US Senate in 2014-a Republican wave election year by a double digit margin against a top tier statewide elected official.
He served in the US Navy during the Persian Gulf War.
He represented a swing Congressional district from 2009-2013
He has a 90% overall progressive punch score/85% crucial vote progressive punch score.
Peters-MI could carry all of the Clinton 2016 states plus MI,PA,and WI.
