    What potential Democrats are out there for President in 2016?

    Whether Obama wins in 2012 or not, what Democrats are potential up and comers? Anyone got any names?

    I know Andrew Cuomo is supposed to be a rising star. His father Mario was fantastic. I'd guess he's probably too far to the left to have a good chance of winning, but am not sure. Anyone else? Any women? Hillary could choose to run, 2016 is a long time off...

    Come on my Dem friends, help me out. Is 5 years too far off to even start thinking about it?

    I know, hardly any of us knew of Obama (as a potential contender at least) before his convention speech in 2004, and W. Bush wasn't really on the map in that way until about 1997.

    I suggest you worry about 2012 first.

    :eusa_whistle:

    Obama will win in 2012 against whomever the GOP throws up. But, whether he wins or loses, he's the nominee in 2012.

    My expectation is he'll win in 2012, and come 2016 there will be a strong field of Republican Candidates. We probably know some of them right now, perhaps Christie, Rubio, Kasich.

    I want to know from my Dem friends if they know of any up and comers in our party. We know Biden won't take the reins from Obama in 2017. So, who's on the horizon.

    I suggest that you just give it up, dude.

    Shit happens, and it DID happen,

    and now?

    The Dums are SO The Losers.

    IF it doesn't go to a repug, in 2016?

    It'll be the NEW parties that are calling the shots :

    from my little corner, it'll be the Tea Party,

    but the dums will whip up something to compete, I feel sure.

    (You're before your time, pal.)

    Now that's funny!

    There will never be a "Tea Party" Party. The "Tea Party" is a fad, that will fade. It's nothing more than a vehicle for the Republican party.

    Andrew Cuomo is a lesser son of a great father. He's also far less liberal than you seem to think - he's much more of a centrist than his father was, and he wasn't that liberal either.

    Hilary will be too old in 2016. I'm gonna guess that whoever the Democrat nominee is in 2016, he or she won't be someone that we really know about now.

    Sometimes here on the board, you see that one in a million post that's the most IGNORANT thing you've read for a long, LONG time. Yeah, it's the post above. What an absolute fucking moron.

    Nancy once called the tea party an astroturf movement. I bet she would love to take those words back.

    "Astroturf" is another meaningless term.

    The Tea Parties are being used by the Republican party, as a tool to fuel anger. As soon as the Republicans have power again, the Tea Party will disappear.
