I fully understand that as of this day, June 16, 2014, there are no declared candidates for the Democratic nomination to run for president in 2016. There's a good reason for that, it's far too early. Those declarations are a good 6-8 months away now, and in the interim there is a mid-term election, which deserves our attention.
  However, plans are being made at this point, and it would be interesting to see where people stand in their preferences at this moment in time.
  I understand of course that such a poll is unscientific in nature, as is every other poll published here or on any public website. Be that as it may, the results will still be of interest, no matter how many grains of salt each person chooses to take them with.

This is a simple, straightforward poll. Just choose who you would like to have represent the Democratic Party in the upcoming election. As I said, no-one is yet a declared candidate, some of these folks may enter the race, others may not, so at this point it's merely a matter of preference.
  In the interest of full disclosure, I support Elizabeth Warren because she is someone I believe in and would be excited to work for, and ultimately to have as president.
  Having said that, here goes. Please participate and enjoy!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
