    Okay, here's where I see them. Want to make a Caveat that any of these guys would be a vast improvement over Trump.

    Joe Biden- My biggest concern about Biden is his age. He'll be 76 if sworn in 2021. I think we can already see the folly of electing Septuagenarians. Reagan was clearly senile at the end of his Presidency, and Trump shows all the signs of dementia. All that said, he's probably the most clearly qualified person the Democrats have in terms of resume.

    Bernie Sanders - This guy is a waste. Yes, he has some okay ideas, like Medicare for All, but frankly, he's way too far off to the left. He'll scare the straights. Also- 78 if elected? Really?

    Beto O'Rourke- I kind of like this guy. He's young, he's dynamic. He fought Ted Cruz to a draw in Texas with the GOP throwing everything they had at him. A pity he doesn't have more experience.

    Kirstin Gillibrand- Can't really forgive her for throwing Al Franken under the bus the way she did.

    Liz Warren - Lots of good ideas, but she pretty much self-immolated on that Native American thing.

    Pete Buttigeig - Sorry, being mayor of the fourth biggest city in Indiana just doesn't qualify you.

    Biden was born 11/20/1942, that puts him at 78 for his inauguration, not 76. He's way too old.
    Bernie was born 9/8/1941, that puts him at 79 for his inauguration, not 78. He's way too old.
    Beto is a real "pussy cat" if you've seen that photo of him in a dress
    Kirstin would not be good going up against China, Russia, and NK
    Liz, is a leftist loon, a college professor who knows nothing about the real world
    Pete Butterbutt, I don't like his husband, eeeoooowwww

    Beto will have the cows waxing his ass, and Pete "butter my muffin" Buttigieg with supply the wax.

    All of the above lead to a Trump victory.

    So far the only thing they all seem to have much going for them in s they are trying to buy votes with no idea how to pay. So that means promise now forget later.
    Reparations, Medicare for all, tear down the border fences, new green deal and all the rest.

    Add to that the democrats already in congress talking impeach, investigate. True if those in congress do not investigate and harass they will upset their rabid base so the old guard needs them to stay in.
    If they continue independents will see it for the sour grapes it is and feel sorry for Trump. We could very well be seeing the last time democrats will have any power in the White House, senate majority r House of Representatives for many years.

    You work on the assumption that independents (do we still have that many of those) look at the daily crazy coming out of the White House and want four more years of that.

    Here's the thing... when a Fox News Audience told Bernie that they were okay with Medicare for All, that kind of tells me that this isn't as complicated as you like to think it is.
