in 2020 We Need a STRONG Candidate [View all]

We need a candidate that all Democrats and assorted progressives can agree will make a good POTUS. We need a candidate who will energize voters and create a massive, overwhelming turnout at the polls in November, 2020.

I don't know that candidate's name yet. I hope to learn it soon after the midterm elections in 2018. I hope such a candidate exists, because we cannot survive as a political party if we lose in 2020.

Young, old, man or woman, we need a terrific candidate!

I am betting that McAuliffe does not run. First of all, I don't think the Clinton Machinery StevieM Nov 2017 #13
McAuliffe might run and he might get "the Clinton machinery", but he certainly karynnj Nov 2017 #15
He has another option: he can simply be a successful and popular swing state governor who retires. StevieM Nov 2017 #16
