    It's not to early to begin picking out the most diseased peas in the pod and flicking them into the weeds. There are at present more potential Democratic candidates for POTUS than one can flush down the average toilet.

    Here they are in their declared, undeclared, exploratory, rumored glory:

    Kamala Harris - California - (54), Bernie Sanders - Vermont - (77), Sherrod Brown - Ohio - (66), Joe Biden - Delaware - (76), Beto O’Rourke - Texas - (46), Elizabeth Warren - Massachusetts - (69), Cory Booker - New Jersey - (49), Kirsten Gillibrand - New York (52), Amy Klobuchar - Minnesota - (58), Julián Castro - Texas - (44), John Hickenlooper - Colorado - (66), Pete Buttigieg - Indiana - (37), Jay Inslee - Washington (think Seattle) - (67), Steve Bullock - Montana - (52), and more besides. Eric Holder, Michael Bloomberg, plus whoever else has a pulse and a load of blind ambition...

    As Bob Dylan said (not in this context, exactly) "Is there a hole for me to get sick in?”

    How about a write-in for optimistic and hopeful?

    Nah, just playing. I will go with "poked in the eye with a sharp stick"

    Morally sensitive people will feel like "all of the above".

    Take Amy Klobuchar, my esteemed senior Senator from Minnesota. What on earth does this woman bring to the task? She's possibly a nice person -- even if she was a nasty boss -- throwing a binder at one of her employees and hitting him in the head. Does that qualify her to be Leader of the Free World? Her highest achievement before the Senate was podunk County attorney. Big deal. Her most famous line around here is "Bridges are not supposed to fall down in Minnesota" -- after the Interstate Highway 35 bridge over the Mississippi River collapsed during rush hour a few years back.

    I propose the Ticket of Bernie Sanders for President with Pete Buttigieg for VP, the 37 year old gay mayor of South Bend, Indiana. Does Buttigieg know shit from shinola? Maybe. But an old socialist and a young gay guy would be at least a novel combo. He seems sensible.

    Yes I'd second 'Optimistic and Hopeful'. If nothing else it's a chance for the USA to rejoin the international community of civilised nations. You have been very silly, but we'd welcome you back like the prodigal son.
