    Please don't force them to run as the gay guy or the woman, especially if you follow up by declaring everyone unimpressed with them as sexist, racist or homophobic. Independents, Republicans and rational Democrats don't like that.

    And the deficit would be lower.

    Alan: Would you vote for a gay, half black/half Indian woman who otherwise shared and agreed with your politics and advocated for such?

    I think we can have both a longer bill of rights and a lower deficit. Americans can do some brilliant and inspired things when we really want to.

    Have you ever seen Alan indicate otherwise ?

    Sure! I'm not nearly progressive enough to do otherwise.

    I suspect that Alan would vote for the hypothetical candidate if, when asked about their sexuality and/or racial background they said something like:
    "I am gay, I am half Indian and half black. I am done talking about it. Let's get into my policy ideas and my plans for governance."

    But I dunno! I would prefer to hear what Alan has to say, whether my speculation is correct or not.

    What is INSANE is that some of my fellow leftists would still consider someone like Alan racist and/or homophobic. It takes some intellectual contortions, but they can do it. And I wish they would not. LOL

Not to mention that 4 years worth of his base from 2016 will be dead and 4 more years worth of young people will be eligible to vote by election day 2020.
    There are many who are sick of the constant drama inflicted by the current president. Many will vote for ANYONE but him.
