|Howard Schultz, the Wenzel early pick|
as the Democratic 2020 presidential nominee.
According to the Bezo rag, this is the list:
Senators who are definitely or potentially running include: Michael Bennet (Colo.), Cory Booker (N.J.), Sherrod Brown (Ohio), Bob Casey (Pa.), Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.), Kamala Harris (Calif.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.), Jeff Merkley (Ore.), Chris Murphy (Conn.) Bernie Sanders (Vt.), and Elizabeth Warren (Mass.)
Representatives include: John Delaney (Md.), Tulsi Gabbard (Hawaii), Beto O’Rourke (Texas), Tim Ryan (Ohio) and Eric Swalwell (Calif.)
This is a pretty sad list, outside of Gabbard who is very good on foreign policy.
But in addition to members of Congress, Michael Bloomberg, who I find an especially annoying interventionist, and former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, are making noises about running.
My two year out, very early take, is that Schultz has the best shot at gaining the Democratic nomination. Anybody that can get the world to pay from $3.00 to $5.00 for a cup of coffee knows how to spin. The campaign trail will tell us if he has the personal charisma to match his spinning nonsense ability.
