Secretary of State Joe Biden

Remember this?

From Politico on October 28:
Joe Biden is at the top of the internal short list Hillary Clinton’s transition team is preparing for her pick to be secretary of state, a source familiar with the planning tells Politico.
This would be the first major Cabinet candidate to go public for a campaign that’s insisted its focus remains on winning the election, and perhaps the most central choice for a potential president who was a secretary of state herself.
Neither Clinton, nor her aides have yet told Biden. According to the source, they’re strategizing about how to make the approach to the vice president, who almost ran against her in the Democratic primaries but has since been campaigning for her at a breakneck pace all over the country in these final months.
"He'd be great, and they are spending a lot of time figuring out the best way to try to persuade him to do it if she wins,” said the source familiar with the transition planning.
Welcome to Romneyville, Joe.

Meanwhile, there is this good news for Trumpkins. The top two people Democrats and independents want to run in 2020 are Bernie and Biden.

A USA Today poll showed 44% of Democrats would be excited if Bernie Sanders ran again in four years.

Joe Biden, the soon-to-be-ex Vice President, is the second choice of Democrats as 43%.

Third on the list was Fauxcahontas Warren at 38%.

Hillary was at 23%.

Patrick Deval was at 10%. He was governor of Massachusetts, which is Warren's current state. Never mind that the last three candidates from Massachusetts -- Dukakis, Kerry and Romney -- were creamed, two of the people on USA Today's list are from Massachusetts.

The newspaper also asked whether Democrats don't want these five to run.

62% said don't run Hillary.

What a bunch of misogynists.

The story is here.

  1. The top 3 choices are the same old losers. No new blood for the faithful?

    1. "Old" losers is right. On election day, 2020, Sanders will be 79, Biden will be 77 (turning 78 later in November 2020), the Hildebeest will be 73, and Fauxcahontas will be 71. Even though I'll be 68 myself, I think that that's old.

    2. Good post. I just don't see any new talent on the bench for the Demmie side. I hope they don't address it!

  2. Uncle creepy as our chief foreign representative. I feel like a guy sent before a firing squad and everybody missed. It would have been foreign policy decided by domestic political calculation and ideology over realism all over again.

  6. I liked this: "On the theory that it's never too early to launch the next campaign, the new USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll has identified an overwhelming front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020.

    >>>>>>>It's someone entirely new."<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

    I "liked" this: www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2016/12/21/poll-donald-trump-progress-uniting-usa/95667510/ (As IF the Dems would even think of cooperating with him.)

    1. The Dems best candidates are always nobodies with no record or paper trail. Better to get them elected before their pictures begin to show up in post offices.

  8. The Democrat Party is now officially the Cleveland Browns of politics. [Sorry, Don, I know that's a punch to the gut. Buck up. Unlike the Democrats, the Browns have a chance to acquire fresh talent in the NFL draft.]
