So who would YOU like to see as the 2016 Democratic nominee?

I like Hillary; but she hasn't (yet) officially announced that she will be running for POTUS in 2016.

I like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), but he would have to become a Democrat to get my vote.

I like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), but she has said she's not interested in running for POTUS in 2016

I like Rep. Alan Grayson (D-FLA)

I like Vice President Joe Biden, but I doubt that he wants to run for POTUS in 2016

I like Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN)

I like Rep. Barbara lee (D-CA)

I like Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy lll (D-MA)

I like Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD)

I like Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA)

I like Rep. Charles B. Rangel (D-NY)

I like Rep. Jim McDermott (D-WA)

11. That ticket would guarantee a Teabagger in the White House

 

Clinton/Manchin that is.

I would really have to hold my nose and mouth-breathe through a respirator to vote for Hillary in the General Election, but I would never vote for Joe Manchin under ANY circumstances. And I'm definitely not in the minority on that one.

25. Too many divorces. The press would be on him like stink on caca.

That kind of thing should not matter any more, but it does. He's in "I Wed Three Wives" territory.

Right now, he's working for John Kerry as an envoy in Africa.

A bit out of the loop, but working....

30. Thanks for the link

I read the entire article.

Russ Feingold is a good man, and, IMO, would make an excellent POTUS

34. Why would you prefer him to run as an Independent?

Wouldn't that be like Ralph Nader in 2000?

If Bernie Sanders ran as an Independent, and not as a Democrat, it would probably result in a Republican POTUS

I would rather she completed her Senatorial term and then run. It would make her seem less like a politician.

I, too, like Sen. Warren very much, and Bernie Sanders too.

...for some reason I can't put my finger on.

Feingold could get my vote, though.

I can't wait for her to announce her candidacy!

I know she says she isn't running now, but that is just being a smart politician

Thank you for serving Senator, and giving voice to us 99 percenters

23. I'd support Sanders in the primary.

Although it looks to be a repeat of '08, the 'inevitable' 3rd way candidate versus the newbie Senator who talks a good game but doesn't have much of a resume. I like Sanders because he's a known quantity and I don't expect him to radically change his positions if elected.

Even though my personal preference is Warren. I believe that Clinton is more electable.

However, the Republicans have a real load of crap to choose from.

32. You're right about the GOP having "a real load of crap to choose from"

Especially idiots like Sen.Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Gov. Rick Perry (R-TX)

IMO, the least "crappy" possible GOP nominee in 2016 is Jeb Bush..(at least he's not a moron like Cruz & Perry are)

He's more likely to run than a lot of your options, and likely to do better than some would too.
