Quote:Looks like we have another Ralph Nader type (former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz) who may be running as an independent, haha. Julian Castro, democratic hopeful, seems kind of depressed with early pleads for him to not enter the race, as it would likely siphon votes away from the democrats.
Quote:Schultz will announce plans on 60 Minutes tonight. Come on down, Harold! The water is warm.
Quote:Assume the Dems are just testing the water for now.
They don't seem to really have a strong candidate yet.
I am curious though...why focus on them being women or gay?
I'd focus more on what their record shows them to be...as far as agenda etc.
Quote:I'm guessing they think women might want someone who better represents their (womens) interest. It's really no different than for any other demographic or class of people.
True...but then the Democrats just increase the strength of the argument that all they are is identity politics. That it doesn't matter about qualifications...just that you check the appropriate politically correct check box.
I want to know what their qualifications are...not who they find sexually attractive. And if they are skilled and qualified...THEN they make great candidates. (They may be...but once again the news does a disservice by not talking about that aspect).
The Democrats showed last time that they are completely incapable of producing any remotely decent candidate since Hilary was their candidate for President. Hilary was BY FAR the worst Presidential candidate in the entire history of The US and that is why Trump won. I hope Schultz does run and helps Trump get re elected. Trump is awesome as President because of his immigration policies
