Doing our best to move on from 2016 - here are our hopes for the next US Presidential election.
It goes without saying that we would love for American and global hero, Hillary Rodham Clinton, to run for President again in 2020. A successful bid would heal a lot of the hurt caused by her narrow miss in 2016. Doesn’t America love a comeback?
We think it’s important that she only runs if there is a shift in the mainstream perception of her beforehand. The pervasive mainstream narrative is that she’s phony, untrustworthy, elitist, whatever, I’m not really sure. I’m hoping the public will wake up over the next few years. Otherwise, running again isn’t really worth her while.
Sally has an impeccable record of prosecuting in cases of political corruption, anti-abortion terrorism and anti-gay terrorism. Sounds like she would be keen to genuinely drain the swamp. And to protect vulnerable groups of society. Plus there’s that gorgeous Southern drawl. Cross-aisle appeal?
Sometimes reluctant leaders are the best. Yates is not a career politician, but she has demonstrated a powerful strength of character and an unflinching moral compass. She has a great presence. Surely these are traits we want in our next leader.
Plus she’s pissed off loads of GOP people including giant turd Jeff Sessions, so she has me.
Harris has a similarly stellar record, and she can add senator to the list. Not only is she very vocal in her criticism of Trump, which these days is an exhausting task, but she’s taking action to resist his administrations policies and protect Americans.
She’s bold and blunt and funny and fab – we would be blessed to have her.
Despite his track record, Martin O’Malley gained very little traction in the 2016 campaign. Graham Vyse at New Republic wrote a great article breaking it all down and looking to the future.
I would be very happy with an O’Malley presidency, but him and his team will need a more inspiring narrative than what we’ve seen to capture voter’s hearts in 2020.
She’s fab but she should run for senator first. Maybe in Arkansaw?
Very handsome but I don’t think he’s done enough to inspire us… yet.
Now we’re into the Republicans! I have really grown fond of McCain. The Trump influence is affecting this – under the current regime it’s easy to find yourself missing George W. Bush. Regardless of why I’m suddenly into McCain – he definitely has balls and principles. But I do think age may be an issue here. 84 years old at inauguration? Not cute.
