  •  The 2016 bench is not thin, what's wrong (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    is that the popularity of Hillary Clinton is precluding the idea of a bench.

    The reality is Hillary Clinton is not going to be running for president. Joe Biden might, but let's say he doesn't.

    The Democratic bench includes strong background candidates like Martin O'Malley, Kristin Gillibrand, Brian Schweitzer and neophytes like a Kamala Harris or a Cory Booker.

    •  Elizabeth Warren leads the bench IMHO (1+ / 0-)

      However, your assertion that Hilary will not be running is not reality but speculation, unless you have very strong evidence to share.

      The overwhelming reality is the climate crisis. Hilary's lack of leadership on climate disqualifies her in my eyes, but the political establishment seems to think she is a prohibitive favorite and likely to run.

      But 4 years is a long time in politics: the climate crisis may be dramatically worse by 2015, and even a Gore comeback is possible.

      There's no such thing as a free market!
