11. I expect she'll be the Democratic nominee

 

I hope your son will be able to vote to re-elect her in a little over 5 years.

Since she was denied running the CFPB (by Mitch), and then showed them by moving to the Senate, I've seen a sure-footed liberal/progressive step up for the people. Her position papers align with my hopes for the future. If I get a chance to vote for her in our primary she'll have my vote.
I just hope that we can capture the Senate majority, preferably without Senator Schumer at the helm (didn't like his capitulation on border funding). I believe that Democrats will hold the House, perhaps even get a few more seats.

Amongst the herd of Democratic candidates, I'd say pick Mayor Pete as the VP, I think he'd make a good President in 8 years, and he's from a really red state. Kamala Harris has impressed me since she becoming the attorney general of California. She'd be a spectacular improvement over Barr as the US Attorney General. Not saying much there, anyone with a conscience would be. Since she's a senator from one of the bluest states, with a Democratic governor, the Senate seat would stay blue.

I wonder if Governor Inslee would be offered a job in the administration? EPA? Interior?
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Undecided
