    Besides Harris there are some other promising younger people like Betos. Biden needs to not enter the race.

    Are you looking a generation back? Because in that case Trump's mother was an immigrant.

    I see Spartacus is now officially in the arena.

    As to the Beto angels of our nature, Mr. O’Rourke continues to gaze in rapt fascination at his navel and post his trips to the Dentist on social media.

    I see Tulsi Gabbard is in it now. She got an early endorsement from David Duke, who apparently reasoned that since she wouldn’t intervene to defend anybody she wouldn’t intervene to defend Israel.

    I find the timing of all of these posts from our conservative brethren to be rather funny. Is it to try to distract from the 19 months we have left to endure this MAGA (My Attorney Got Arrested) presidency?

    I'm happy to let the primary system shake out the losers and then focus on the frontrunners when the date of the vote is much closer.

    It is far beyond my poor powers to take attention away from the Twitter-in-Chief. I will admit to enjoying the spectacle of all the jockeying for position in this abundantly crowded field. Who can think of an original way to punish the rich? Who has politically incorrect skeletons lurking in their distant past? Who can attach a credible plan to the Green New Deal slogan? Who has the optimal DNA sequence to appeal to the identitarians? Who can best protect us from the machinations of the Knights of Columbus?

    Will whoever emerges scarred and compromised from a raucous primary process be able to convince the general public they are still a better choice than our morbidly unpopular incumbent? You can’t convince me it won’t be fun to watch.

    That would be Elizabeth Warren, who kept listing herself as American Indian. A new instance on Texas just surfaced.

    Seems pretty tame compared to the legions of scary skeletons inhabiting Republican walk-in sized closets, if you ask me. It certainly wouldn't stop me from voting for her.

    I can remember when dredging up the real or imagined sins of 30-40 years ago was limited to special cases. Fugitive Nazis and so forth.

    Indeed. Personally as regards the D side I'm much more concerned with Booker's chummy relationships with pharma and wall street. Maybe if Warren would just brag about grabbing females by their genitals or send hush payments to a few porn stars/hookers people would have more respect for her.
