These are who I believe have a shot at taking the White House if The President’s momentum on the economy takes a downturn.
Tulsi Gabbard – Congresswoman from Hawaii and combat veteran who is as close to the middle as you will get for the Democrats. The one knock would be her age. At 39, her age at time of election, she would be the youngest person ever elected and experience will play a factor but maybe not against President Trump who is brand new to politics but not the presidency. The plus, she will be 39 and have a forward thinking mindset. She would also have almost 20 years of government work by that time and did I mention she is a combat veteran, a Major in the armed forces, that’s awesome. Her salutes come with more experience than most men have.
Kamala Harris – Senator from California, Ms. Harris is a skilled and seasoned former State Attorney General. Don’t let her effervescent smile fool you (not pictured) , she is extremely smart, tough, and a no nonsense of a person you will ever find. She is quick witted and insightful. The knock, she is from California. The only person to be elected to President from California was Ronald Reagan and he was a Repub, which might be the only way that can happen. Oh, and Herbert Hoover, he was a President right? If she was from… lets say…. anywhere else, she would have been guaranteed a victory. If Ms. Harris can pull off a victory, then she would have done what no man (I know she is a woman, every person with an eyeball knows she is a woman, I’m bringing attention to her ground breaking style) has ever done, be a Dem from Cali and win the Oval Office. Ms. Harris will smile and ask a question and by the time you answer she will have you admitting that there is no back door to politics and that she is the best candidate. Ms. Harris will have to pick a running mate from a State that can offset that problem. She should be careful who she aligns herself with because she will need the right people or it could kill her campaign.
Kirsten Gillibrand – A tough lawyer turned politician, Ms. Gillibrand is a natural leader. She comes from a state that has long history of taking the Oval Office. And who wouldn’t love to see two New Yorkers, Sec. Clinton was more midwest in temperament, go at it. Being from the same state as the current President, she would pose some very real challenges to President Trump. The knock, she really isn’t that known, which I think is a plus, but her name recognition isn’t quite up there as Biden, Harris, or Sanders. The plus, well, you ever argued with an intelligent woman from NY? You have a better chance of winning the lottery twice on the same day then winning that argument.
Bernie Sanders – If it wasn’t for the debacle, lucky for President Trump, with the DNC, Sanders would have been President. The knock, the opposite of Gabbard, his age in the opposite direction. Sanders is a tough Senator that stands for what he believes and that’s to do the right thing. A motto that he carries on his sleeve. I voted form him in the primaries but was overruled by a bunch of dumbasses. If he shows some liveliness in a campaign, I think he can get it done. The plus, well, he is freaking Bernie Sanders, a man that got carried away by the police protesting injustices and the only person on the Dems that could have beat all the Repubs in 2016. There’s a bunch of Bernie’s, but only one Bernie Sanders. Feel the Bern, and let’s not forget his followers, the Bernie babies. This is the closest you get to Political stardom, and the whole time, Bernie remained humble and true to himself.
By the way, I’m a moderate, I believe in choice, from abortion to gun rights (oddly not marijuana). These candidates, most of them are centered and believe the same thing. I like middle of the ground politicians because I feel they can win over both parties and actually get stuff done.
