  •  I have been thinking about this too. (5+ / 0-)

    Today I would say Hillary, if she decides to take it on, and add Sherrod Brown from Ohio.  I like Elizabeth Warren but she needs some seasoning and political experience.  A women would be nice,

    •  Warren will be 68 when she's done (1+ / 0-)

      I think Sherrod Brown could actually be a good candidate. He seems like he could win the blue collar vote much easier than anyone else on that list (except maybe Hillary, but that too is questionable).

        He'd be able to reach out to blue collar voters in even West Virginia.

        However, right now we need Sherrod Brown representing Ohio because the state is becoming more Democratic and it's likely Obama will win the state by a larger margin than he did in 2008.  We can't let Ohio go into GOP territory, especially not with what's happened with regards to voter suppression and GOP overall governance in the state.

    •  Neither Hillary nor Biden will be running (1+ / 0-)

      Let's face it. Not happening. I think both have risen to their limits. Biden will be too old; Hillary will be verging on it. I am far from ready to annoint ELizabeth Warren, whose victory isn't even clear and whose ability to navigate government and politics is a complete question mark. Don't like Cuomo or Warner; we don't need to drag ourselves backward that DLC/third way crap. Some of the others are interesting ideas but very outside. Personally, I'd like to see Kristen Gillibrand run.

      Don't know about Sherrod. I know him, and he isn't telegraphing that he's thinking about running but then he's running right now to keep his seat against the biggest money deluge in the country, upporting a candidate who, if he wins, will form his presidential exploratory committee the next day. He is a puppet of big corporate special interests and he must be stopped.

      Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
