  1. Bernie Sanders? Please. Please run. I read somewhere that the GOP has a dossier on him which makes the shit Corbyn messed about with in his earlier years look like responsible statesmanship.

    Sanders would get out the core loony SJW vote and the black vote. If the Democrats think blue-collar workers are going to vote for this loony they are mad.

  2. Dems can start as early as they like . . . won’t do ’em any good.

    Only one of the 10 listed has a chance. The Dems have become far too liberal for Americans. Their solution? Swerve further left. One more iteration of this and they will cease to exist as a party. At the state level, they are already in deep doodoo.

  3. So Much For Subtlety

    Rob – “Sanders would get out the core loony SJW vote and the black vote.”

    American politics are now openly about race. There is no way Blacks will come out for the crazy old Jewish guy. Relations between Blacks and Jews in places like New York have been bad for over two generations. Competition for the same jobs.

    The minority vote is now so high that with the single mothers, the Democrats are fairly sure to win. All they need to do is make sure people turn out. That means they need to nominate a Black or Hispanic.

    However as other people have pointed out, one of the things about the Obama Years has been the gutting of the Democratic party. They control next to nothing above the level of a city. And those cities? Running Newark or Chicago badly are not good advertisements.

  4. “Elizabeth Warren … following the misogyny that led to Clinton’s defeat,”

    Keep telling yourselves this. No, really. Keep telling yourselves this.

    And then I’ll get in the popcorn for when the Repubs run Nikki Haley (Indian-American lady) in 2020 or 2024 and she wins by a landslide, despite the Dem-MSM axis engaging in the most vicious misogenism possible.

  5. 8 years ago Malia Obama on hearing her Dad was to be the next president said : He better be good.

    On that statement alone, I hope she is being touted as the next Dem candidate.

  6. If the Dems keep it up, they’ll have almost no source for talent bubbling up through the system. So they’ll be reduced to running the offspring of formerly-successful politicians, and celebrities.

    As I’ve said before, if they’re so sure that the Republicans are misogenists and racists, they need to get the MSM to bait them into running Nikki Haley. Cos if they believe their own sh1t, all they’d have to do is run a centrist mid-western white male, and they’d win in a landslide as all the racist-misoginists couldn’t bring themselves to vote for Haley. Right?

    But really, they don’t actually believe their own sh1t quite so much, so if she runs, the MSM will be set to “destroy” during the primaries.

  7. The Dems could easily win the Presidency again if they get a likeable candidate in place. If they go leftwards, as they seem to be tempted to do, then it’s curtains.

    On race, whites now vote for Republican candidates by a 20% majority, whereas black and Latino voters overwhelmingly vote Democrat.

  8. “The Dems could easily win the Presidency again if they get a likeable candidate in place. If they go leftwards, as they seem to be tempted to do, then it’s curtains.”

    A likable candidate. Indded. Problem is, with the centrist dems being sidelined and voted out, we’re down to the spittle-flecked loonies like Sanders and Warren.

  9. My most serious and thoughtful American friend wasn’t keen on either candidate, but amongst his limited hopes for a Trump presidency is some improvement in race relations.

    The Dems (and most Europeans) will regard him as insane, if not evil.

    Attempting to understand why he may be right would be a great place for the Dems to start. And Labour.

  10. The European media and establishment have declared every Republican presidential candidate in my lifetime to be insane and evil, every Democrat to be progressive and good.

    Why people fall for the same crap every time is beyond me.

  11. “Why people fall for the same crap every time is beyond me.”

    The problem is that about half of people believed the shit the media was feeding them.

    And the other half refused to eat their bullshit.

  12. Oh, and something interesting I saw on Twitter – Dan Hoges said that the most dangerous thing that could happen is that he won’t be that bad…

    WTF is this partisan BS? It’s dangerous that he does an OK job cos then he’ll get re-elected rather than whatever idiot our tribe puts forward?

  13. Dan Hodges is losing his shit as the West has demonstrably had enough of rampant immigration, and that is what gets our Dan out of bed these days.

    Its a shame cos on Labour politics he is quite insightful, but the moment immigration comes up he turns into a frothing ideologue.

    abacab – “And then I’ll get in the popcorn for when the Repubs run Nikki Haley (Indian-American lady) in 2020 or 2024 and she wins by a landslide, despite the Dem-MSM axis engaging in the most vicious misogenism possible.”

    Blacks won’t vote for an Indian either I would bet. Also after her “response” to Obama’s SOTU speech I am not sure that Trump voters would either.

    Now Mia Love, there is a candidate everyone could get behind.

  15. I can remember a few years back when we were told that the Republicans would never win again, because of rising proportions of blacks, Hispanics and women voting. Hmmm… looks like they were wrong. Trump could hardly have done more to upset them.

  16. I’m betting on it being Michelle or Chelsea. Michelle has already denied being interested, so she’ll definitely stand.

  17. @Custard Cream,

    If they do that, many people will simply say “Oh, FFS, they’re really taking the piss out of us now”. But the media will roll over and breathlessly support such a ridiculous move, as usual…

  18. Bloke in Costa Rica

    If the media really have shot their bolt this election cycle then the Democrats have an uphill task. But if they still retain a modicum of influence then the Republicans are going to have to wade through all this shit again next time.

    One of the biggest problems of the US system is the tempo of elections. Every two years, like a metronome, there’s another one, so people start campaigning for re-election from the get-go, but then when you get a change of administration it takes eight weeks to actually hand the reins over.

  19. Bloke in North Dorset

    Given that most of them live in cloud cookoo land and lionise West Wing I’m surprised Mat Santos isn’t on that list.

  20. Jews and blacks compete for the same jobs? Really? Are you sure?

    Yes, I raised an eyebrow at this too. Perhaps in the 1920s?

  21. “On race, whites now vote for Republican candidates by a 20% majority, whereas black and Latino voters overwhelmingly vote Democrat.”

    Exactly, and with President Trump deporting millions of illegals, the Dems hopes will go with them.

  22. I’m betting on it being Michelle or Chelsea. Michelle has already denied being interested, so she’ll definitely stand.

    I’ve always thought Obama’s presidency was partly African in style, which is hardly surprising given he worshipped his father. Anointing his wife to run would take it further in that direction.

  23. ‘American politics are now openly about race.’

    For the Dems. But whites are still 70% of the population.

    Haley isn’t regarded will in SC. Dems hate her. Repulicans see her as a RINO, so considering the voters going with Trump, I don’t see her as a likely candidate. She does have a few years to repair her image with Republicans. Dems will always hate her.

  24. Michelle has already denied being interested, so she’ll definitely stand.

    So much for the “he doesn’t have any experience” argument about Trump.

  25. So Much For Subtlety

    Nautical Nick – “I can remember a few years back when we were told that the Republicans would never win again, because of rising proportions of blacks, Hispanics and women voting.”

    They have just put it off for a cycle because the Democrats over-reached with Obamacare and they picked a really bad candidate in Hillary. This is the swan song for White America. They will never win the White House again. The future of America is Venezuela – with nuclear weapons.

    Squander Two – “So why are the Dems so keen on Warren?”

    She didn’t stand. I expect Warren cost more votes than she gained. She has an annoying voice that is used to further divisive politics – and I would think that just puts men off. Black men especially. It is interesting that Dave Chappelle, of all people, has laughed at the Democrats this time around and come close to praising the Bling King Trump.

    H – “Jews and blacks compete for the same jobs? Really? Are you sure?”

    Not real jobs. Not jobs at Goldman Sacks or Apple. But the New York city government controls serious patronage in terms of jobs. Teachers. Policemen. Firemen. Garbage contractors. A lot of city politics has been for the control of those jobs. So the Irish machine used to hand them out. They had to make way for the Italians and then the Jews. They are being shouldered aside by Blacks and now Hispanics. For the Black middle class those jobs are vital. There is virtually no other middle class.

    If you read Bonfire of the Vanities, you can see this at work and in fact it is probably discussed.

    Jonathan – “Exactly, and with President Trump deporting millions of illegals, the Dems hopes will go with them.”

    Well no. It is too late. A generation ago that might have worked. Now American schools are majority minority. The Democrats only have to wait – and keep the anti-White hate alive.

    Tim Newman – “I’ve always thought Obama’s presidency was partly African in style, which is hardly surprising given he worshipped his father. Anointing his wife to run would take it further in that direction.”

    The President of Nigeria would beg to disagree. Do wives follow husbands in Africa? It looks to me that weak family ties – especially between husband and wife – rule that out.

    It is, however, very common for Upper Middle Class White America, especially academia, to consistent of two careers. Half the Obama cabinet is married to someone Important in the media. I don’t think this is African.

    Gamecock – “For the Dems. But whites are still 70% of the population.”

    And many of them are single mothers. Jews and to a lesser extent other North-eastern ethnic groups still vote D.

    Rob – “So much for the “he doesn’t have any experience” argument about Trump.”

    That argument died with Obama. But Michelle has some experience. She had that PR job with a Chicago hospital.

    What else is she going to do? The children are about to leave for college. Is she going to stay at home and care for a man she does not respect at all? I don’t think so.

  26. >> Blacks won’t vote for an Indian either I would bet.
    > So why are the Dems so keen on Warren?

    So is SMFS the only humourectomy victim here who couldn’t tell that was a joke?
