I don’t know if Holder will really run. He would have to defend much of the Obama presidency and I don’t think anyone is going to be waxing nostalgic for the Obama years at that point.

I think it’s far more likely we are “rewarded” with another candidacy by Bill Clinton’s wife (if she’s still alive), or maybe even her daughter – Chelsea Hubbell.

Fauxchahontas for sure – but she’ll lose early in the primaries.

Maybe the truly creepy Tim Kaine and his passive aggression.

How about Alec Baldwin and his booze…?

Oprah? Stuart Smally? Corey Booker…?

Of course, here in The People’s Republic of Washington there’s a lot of chitter-chatter about our governor, Jay Inslee (lol), getting in the race. But once the country gets to know him like we Washingtonians know him, they’ll never get past his lisp. No lie! Every time he opens his yapper that’s the first thing I hear…

Personally, I think Bernie Sanders should be awarded the Dem’ nomination after being cheated out of it by the DNC and Bill Clinton’s wife last time around.

I think that would only be fair, right?

Would Michelle Obama be content as Holder's Vice President?

You're a fool if you think a "Holder/Obama" ticket could beat a "Weiner Holder" ticket...(I said beat a Weiner Holder, soo mature).

The irony is it's in 2020. Everybody know you lose your 20/20 vision when you're a Weiner Holder...

Sorry mods, I'll stop.

And I thought that HRC would be bad.
But this would be horrific.

I don't think Michelle-my-bell will ever be "content" with anything.

Holder, like all Democrats, need to focus on winning the House and Senate first. Otherwise, winning the Presidential election wouldn't mean much.

As you probably know, after 2010, the GOP gerrymandered the hell out of the entire map so that it's an uphill battle for the Democrats until 2024 or so.

The Repub's are going to win in SC-5 today, but if they win in GA-6 as well, the Democrat Party is in some real -- perhaps historic! -- trouble going into 2018.

This is going to sound weird coming from me, but as much of a right-winger that I am, I want our legislative margin to be razor thin to keep them honest. Friggin' Republicans always get lazy when they have big majorities.

A better question is how would Barack feel being both the second and first lady to that ticket?

How dare Eric Holder "The Arrogant", describe Americans who put Donald Trump in the White House in the same condescending way Hillary did when she called them all "deplorables".

What did Eric Holder say? (Quoting from your OP source):


“We have come too far as a nation, sacrificed too much, made too much progress, to allow the state of our nation to be undermined by the extreme part of a divided minority administration,” Holder said, describing Trumpism as “the worst of us.”


How dare he! Who does he think he is!

He and his ilk are "the worst of America", imo. Take a long hard look at the lawbreakers like Eric Holder in the Obama administration. Holder was even held in contempt of congress for refusing to hand over documents pertaining to Fast and Furious.

They plan on filing lawsuit after lawsuit to obstruct the MAGA agenda that The American People voted for! ....because they think they know better!

I am so sick of lawless democrats and their tactics. They don't give two hoots about the taxpayers and the cost to us for all their baseless lawsuits.

In all seriousness, we could finally have that real discussion on race. Right? Right?

It's time for the youngsters, relatively, to step forward--or at the very least begin to. Unfortunately, the average age of Democratic Congress members is 59 yrs, and around 10 months. GOP counter-parts are considerably younger at @55-56 yrs of age.

So for younger democrats to begin to step forward, it's going to have to be from outside Congress. Governors in the Democratic party, only three are younger than I am (I'm 53). Most are considerably older than I.

Young up and coming Dems.

These are some of the more prominent, and younger, Dems to keep your eyes on. Regardless of political stances, they would be a much needed breath of fresh (less than fifty yrs old) air for my party. I especially like Tulsi Gabbard, at least she served two tours in Iraq and Kuwait, and she resigned her seat on the DNC to support Sanders. So she's a bit too socialist for my tastes, at least at first glance, but who knows what'll happen between now and 2020/2024?

The others are interesting.

The GOP has much the same problem, though not quite as extreme. Odds are they'll retain majorities in both Senate, House, and the Oval Office--or two out of three, anyway--in 2020. In 2024, all bets are off.

GOP rising stars under 30.

There are some rather interesting names on that list.

So both parties have younger blood available--younger blood that is competent and enthusiastic. Which both parties seem to lack at the top of the tickets.

It's time, and past, for the dinosaurs--and I nearly fit that category--not quite, but not too much longer. Congress, the Oval Office, Governors mansions all require young, or at the very least young thinking, minds. Retreads like her, and Holder, Boxer, Pelosi, etc... need to go, and they need to be replaced. Not by their kids, either...why nitwits seem to think this is a good idea has always puzzled me.

The GOP has the same issues. Retreads who accomplish nothing.

Bluntly, the baby boomers need to retire and let Generation X, you know the one everyone has forgotten exists, to have a chance.

The unfunded liabilities of the boomers' retirement and pension funds will destroy us all when they retire.

Pretty much, but we're greedy when we point that out.

I just hope our son still loves us when he's independent and that he makes it to live independently because we may need him to take in ol' mom and pop someday because Social Security and Medicare won't exist for us. The boomers are going to crash it out.

The baby boomers probably would have retired by now except when everything crashed in 2008, many of them lost their 401(k) and had to start all over. I know folks in their early 70's still working because they lost it all in the crash and then during Obama's administration the recovery was way too weak and slow.
