    The midterms are over, the Democrats have won the House, the Republicans have kept the Senate gaining a seat or two depending on recounts. I have beaten Ghost to the punch. And soon the media circus will begin for the 2020 elections.

    So, how many Democrats will run for the presidency? Will the centrists and progressives forge a compromise? Will Kasich or another Republican try and fail to primary Trump? Will we survive 2 years of media hype? Vote now on your phones.

    Democratic side (as confirmed as can be):
    • Gillibrand
    • Booker
    • Warren
    • Sanders
    • Cuomo
    • Bloomberg
    Democratic side (rumored):
    • Julian Castro
    • Biden
    • Swalwell
    • Harris
    Democratic side (desired by some groups of people):
    • Beto
    • Mayor Pete (Buttigieg)
    • Andrew Gillum
    • Duckworth
    I wouldn't care to handicap any of that until the race narrows except for one guarantee which I'm sure people will then confirm as being 100% wrong: Cuomo will 100% not be the Democratic nominee for President in 2020.

    Also, Splinter wrote about this today: https://splinternews.com/the-2020-race-is-starting-whether-you-like-it-or-not-1830335283

    GOP Side: I think Flake is positioning himself for a run to primary Trump. Other than that, it's hard to cherry-pick data as GOP Congressional members endorsed by Trump fared not great, but Senators did a lot better (so far; pending final counts/recounts).

    If I were mean, I'd point out the current Presidential election campaign started on Nov. 9th, 2016...

    Lotta skeletons in her closet. She, her family and other associates have benefited quite well from her long tenure.

    According to the president-elect and future incumbent's behavior, it kind-of did x) Trump never stopped campaigning.

    I'll be rooting on the kid from Oakland, Kamala Harris.

    Her career has skyrocketed, as only a few years ago she was District Attorney for the County and City of San Francisco. And next thing I know she's on several Senate Committees as a Junior Senator. She's amazing.

    Yeah, I'm also hoping Daniel De Leon's corpse pulls off an upset.

    Me. I'll try for Democrat but will probably end up as an independent.

    Centrists and progressives will become the best of friends, come to an agreement that satisfies everyone, uniting the entire party in a tidal wave of enthusiasm that will win the election by a large margin. Trump will concede his loss gracefully and wish his opponent the best of luck, doing everything he can to help during the transition.

    Only because I hadn't heard it, but that's both interesting and not terribly surprising!
