    Maybe Hillary should come out and endorse Trump.

    Good idea. Everyone would get a good laugh.

    She'd never endorse her opponent, otherwise the democrats will face major defeats in the upcoming elections for years.

    I hope this comes true because you're totally right in my opinion.

    The title says it all.

    Here's How To Ruin Thanksgiving: Talk About 2020
    Torment your relatives by gossiping about the Democrats who could run against Trump.
    http://www.weeklystandard.com/heres-how-to-ruin-thanksgiving-talk-about-2020/article/2010574

    The list is Joe Biden, Cory Booker, Sherrod Brown, Julian Castro, James Comey, Andrew Cuomo, Bill deBlasio, Eric Garcetti, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, John Hickenlooper, Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson, Amy Klobucher, Seth Moulton, Chris Murphy, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Mark Zuckerberg. There are a couple of interesting names, but that is a clown car to end clown cars.

    Two more articles on 2020 Democratic candidates; this time not from a right wing source.

    HuffPO has a list of six: Sanders, Biden, Warren, Kamala Harris, Sherrod Brown, and Deval Patrick. One issue is that the average age in 2020 is over 69 years, including Harris' 56. Bernie, the headliner, will be 79.

    Salon want Hillary to run again. Here are the bullet points:
    1. Hillary Clinton is the Winston Churchill to Vladimir Putin's Adolf Hitler.
    2. Hillary Clinton being elected president (at last) would monumentally piss off misogynistic trolls, and what's not to like about that?
    3. By winning the popular vote convincingly in 2016, Hillary Clinton has earned the right to be considered the presumptive nominee in 2020.
    4. We can expect her to be a good president.​

    They call this the leftover turkey. How appropriate.

    Hillary could run against a Turd Sandwich and the Turd Sandwich would probably win. Or is hillary the turd sandwich? I'm not sure....

    Are you sure? That would make Trump better than a douche and much better than a turd sandwich.

    I think of Trump as a diarrhea-filled douche.... which would explain what comes out of his mouth most of the time...

    Kamala Harris hasn't had a break out moment though she is a rising star.

    I'm with Bill Maher on this election - Gavin Newsom is going to become the governor of California next year and then become the president in 2018.

    Huh ? The Dems can't get into the white house until 2020 (except for the strange case where they get the house in 2018 and both Trump and Pence are impeached/incapacitated in some way)

    Yeah that was a typo. Governor in 2018 and President in 2020.

    I do not think the coming wave election will be large enough for an impeachment and removal and there is nothing Trump can do that will lead to Republicans turning in him. Literally nothing

    Gavin Newsom FTW... Kamala Harris VP maybe.

    There was literally zero political talk at my house this Thanksgiving... at least I didn't hear any... All we did was eat and drink a ton, watch football, talk football, family, and play board games (RISK Legacy is freaking awesome BTW!:eek: Best.RISK.Ever. Why had I not heard of this earlier??)

    As for politics this Thanksgiving... I think folks were just over it.

    Meh, it was two New Yorkers on the ballot last time and no cataclysmic exploding of the planet... so I think we'll be fine.

    Also, the Democrats ran a New Yorker with a Virginian last time and lost, so obviously having candidates from different States isn't any kind of magic bullet.

    Also, the Republicans ran a New Yorker with an Indianan last time and failed to get a majority of the votes, so obviously having candidates from different States isn't any kind of magic bullet.

    Also, when Bernie was a possible VP choice I didn't hear anyone, as in nobody, not one single solitary time... complain that "Two New Yorkers on the ticket" would be a problem...

    So, yeah... I think were good. ;)

    I meant as in they live in California. Isn't there a stupid rule where the electoral college from a state can't vote for a pres + VP of that state ? So Harris wouldn't have the California EVs for VP.

    Or vice versa. I'd prefer Gavin in the driver's seat but that's as much to do with my visibility on him relative to her as much as his politics. I can see Elizabeth Warren running and I'd be happy with her too. I don't know how it will play out if all three of them run. i think Elizabeth would come out on top as she has even more visibility than Gavin and has taken and received plenty of flack from Trump directly.

    Speaking of which... Levar Ball is going to troll Trump into single-handedly putting him in Congress... remember where you heard it first ;)
    Yeah the Roy Moore fiasco proves this about Republicans... At least Kellyanne is keeping it 100 for a rare (unheard of) change (which is nothing short of shocking TBH) and just admitting that its pure partisanship.

    What has Kellyanne done or said? I haven't been paying attention.
