    I don't live in Iowa, so I'm going to wait until then to start sorting them out. There are too many and I never heard of many of them before now.

    I like Warren, Sanders, or whoever wins the primary.

    I hope it's not Biden. We need a detour away from the GOP, not a speed bump.

    The odds makers are giving Trump a 3:2 advantage no matter who runs against him.

    ............................
    a neighbor couple who are very republican occasionally register for the democratic caucus
    my brother suspects that they do this to caucus for someone who they think cannot win

    .............
    I often caucus for someone espousing a position I like, even though they most likely cannot win the primary
    I do this in hopes that this will encourage a broader acceptance and espousal of the position

    Conservatives will try their sabotage, including allowing Russians to participate, but tRump is a loser who can't win except by cheating. Democrats can win on the issues.

    My absolute favorite candidate is the one who ends up running against Trump.

    what did biden say about alex ?

    i cant see biden living out of a tour bus and a suitcase non stop for around 3 to 4 years

    how many years did trump have to spend paying his own 5 star country club fees with working class poor taxes to recover from his campaign trail of 1 year ?
    quite a lot !

    ortega is the only choice even though americans hate women ... alabama it must be good for something...

    For the job: executive experience, a firm grasp of the reality of the Republican Party and media ("progressive" values and agenda fall out of that automatically).
    For the campaign: plain spoken, an appearance (as well as a reality) of competence (doesn't move their head when speaking, for example).
    For strategical reasons: prefer not to lose a Senator.

    Problem is, Warren has the strongest claim.
    But there's a long time before any of this matters.

    Gillibrand seems to have a problem gaining traction. She appears to be the weakest candidate among the senators running.

    If you elect a democratic candidate for a republic position are they still democratic?

    Mayor Pete may be too young. Reverse your ticket.

    Were Pete an average individual, I might agree with your, but he's way above average. Indeed, I think Mayor Pete has achieved more in his 37 (?) years than most folks do in their whole lives...so, no. Moreover, he actually has executive experience.

    Senator beats Mayor. Warren would lead that ticket. Sounds good though.
