So far our choices for the 2020 democrat candidates aren't looking too good, but it's still 2.5 to 3 years before anyone actually starts running so there's still a lot of room for hope. The real candidates will mostly likely be people we're not thinking of or even know of yet. Democrats at the end of 2004 were probably getting ready for Hillary and then a first-term senator came out of nowhere 3 years later and we all know how that went...

Michelle Obama doesn't look as power hungry as Hillary does to me. If she does run for any office ever, it likely won't be the presidency. Or maybe it'll be a repeat of 2016 when all my predictions were wrong and we do end up with Michelle Obama vs. Trump. The worst possible outcome would be we end up with Trump debating Kanye. Whatever the case, the party is going to need new leadership after this humiliating defeat.


at least, with the worlds end approaching, we could hear a rap battle with trump and kanye

If Kanye runs and so much as looks like he might win the primaries I'm done with this country.

As for Michelle.. I don't consider her a bad person, but I don't know anything about what stances she holds politically, although I'd suspect they're similar to her husband's.

The only thing I can really attribute directly to her off the top of my head is her school nutrition program, which was both well-intended and heavy-handed.

What I'd do really depends on who she's running against - is it Kanye?

While we're all talking about Kanye and Michelle right now, just checking...Joe Biden DID actually fall into a dimensional wormhole and vanish out of our plane of existence, right?

Sadly compared to Kaine, Michelle Obama would be a lot better. That being said, I think if the DNC still doesn't get why they lost, Trump is going to have no problem getting a 2nd term.

Ironically, when I was watching Biden's interviews he seemed to be the only Democratic politician, other than Bernie that understood why there was a political backlash. The other Democratic leaders were too busy counting their sleazy corporate money to see why they were hemorrhaging support.

Oh, if only we'd had Smart-Crazy vs. Delusional-Crazy this year...

(His appearance at the Oscars also emphasized that he can also stump for Causes, which was one of Obama's advantages that was sorely lacking in Hillary's.)

Crazy Uncle Joe, State of the Unions won't be the same without him

That being said, I don't understand why the Democrats are angry at anyone other than themselves. They picked the one candidate who had enough baggage to lose to Donald Trump of all people, let that sink in a bit.

Well, we didn't "pick" Hillary--The reason we're still talking about Biden a year later was the "Run, Joe, Run" campaign, but despite all our (literal) begging, he said he still had too many deep personal/family issues to overcome before running in '16.
Okay, we'll assume he's had a LOT of incentive to overcome them by now, and if not, it will very, very likely occur to him to work on them sometime in the next two to three years.

Bernie was nice as an alternative, but even his mainstream supporters thought he was a little too 60's for his own good. Better to be 60's than 80's, but the Witch-burning Republicans have been having a field day talking about Hillary "destroying" the more electable Democratic candidate, among her many "conspiracies".
The "conspiracy" is debatable, but on "destroying" they will find no argument--Don't flatter yourselves, guys.

(As I said way, way, wayyyy back at the beginning:
With Trump, Jeb Bush and Hillary running this was going to be the election where we finally got all the people together who we were EVER afraid would run, in the same year, and sat back to see whose dreams we would crush by the end. Hopefully all of them.)

True his son died after all. Well, back to enjoying our (American public's) long break from elections for a while, felt like this one lasted forever.
