So, you aren't offering "other" as a choice for those that want none of the above?

not for me....for anyone that would rather have a write-in vote than the candidates that you named.   Even the election polls offer that option.     Hmmm,  but then, at ours,  we have to fill in the dots for whom we want to vote for anyway.  Ours is all by hand and then you take your ticket to another box and deposit it, where it's counted.    Yeah,  we're way behind here on this side of town.   Now, the other side of town actually has levers you could push.

But then,   I won't talk about how they conveniently keep running out of ballots and tell you you have to come back later to vote cause of lack of ballots.   Or even better when everyone in your house votes in one place and you have to go to a different location to vote.   UH....I don't think so.     Election days at the polls are always fun.

Good grief, ct, I'm drinking coffee.        What in the world are you sippin? 

Seriously, hard to imagine anyone in their right mind wants to be the President.  Can't think of a single sitting or past Democrat I would vote for other than Joe Lieberman. Since he's a year older than I never going to happen.
As far as anyone already serving, there is no one in either party at the moment other than Trey Gowdy, but he's a Republican.

I would NOT vote for Lieberman.   Uh.      He hasn't done much for us here in CT, so I sure don't want him as president.


What???   You don't want to be President, Sunny?    Darn.   Does that mean I have to change my vote now?    I voted for you in the Island Presidental election, since I agreed with most of what you had said you would do in one other thread.   LOL

Clinton's numbers will keep falling then level off with a non-shakable base. Campaign may be suspended depending on e-mail investigation if enough bad press comes out. White House may be source of the bad press. The two factions Clinton machine/ new progressives may come out into the public with their fight.

Saunders' popularity will have limited growth due to his ideology.

Look for an entry by Biden as Clinton's numbers sink, possibly using Warren as his early pick for VP. He will count on her popularity and a set up for her to run in 4 years. This would have White House backing.

Well Hobo, I think your thinking on the Democrats is pretty sound. I too wouldn't be at all surprised to see a Biden/Warren ticket. Biden has always been portrayed as an idiot though. Not without good reason, I must say.

Biden has lots of buddies on Capital Hill, and now he has the "sympathy factor" on his side too.  Yep, he could run, be good old Joe, and have Elizabeth Warren be the real focus of his campaign. This will take a  lot of pressure off of Joe to be in constant perform mode.  Everyone knows he would serve one term, so no brainer.  Progressives love Warren. 
Everyone always thought Hillary to be really smart and on top of her game, clever, spiteful, tough and a win at all cost persona. Latest email dump info proves she and her team very aware and intentionally  communicating on private servers.  Gonna get really hot in the kitchen since many in the State Dept. did as well, and I doubt they will go down without a fight and probably turning on one another. 
Stuff happens when people feel used by others, and for sure when the threat of illegal behavior is being charged against them.  They will "sing"!
Most anyone with an ounce of common sense if they were charged with being Secretary of State would go out of their way to be super cautious to NOT use the same email addresses for private and State Department business.  Good grief, the carelessness shown by these people in this day and age with hackers and everything else that goes on is dumbfounding.

"If" Clinton manages to make it to the convention and manages to be nominated. who would she invite on her ticket?
If the questions surrounding the e-mails and her server are not answered by then, the nomination will be up in the air with the fear of an indictment after the nomination. In that case, the DNC would want the VP nominee to be someone that could continue on into the election with a chance of being elected.
Currently there is no one at the front of the democrat party for that position other than Martin O'Malley, already an announced candidate. He may be forced upon Clinton if that scenario exists at that time.
Warren would be an outside possibility, but she and Clinton would have issues and personality conflicts.
If Clinton were allowed to pick her own, it would not be a surprise to see Susan Rice being looked at.
John Kerry would not have a chance, he is not very smart.

You left out Uncle Joe. Him and Kerry together could tie their own shoes.

I wouldn't count out Warren even if it is left to Clinton to have some say. She has the most name recognition IMO. And it would be a double "first". You know how some folks just can't resist that idea of making history.

I really don't see Clinton making it that far though. There are a lot of folks who should be in her corner that are staying clear. I don't think the DNC wants her.

I am beginning to think Biden will not even try for it. His reluctance and his wife's opposition are becoming known now. He has almost said that he does not have the heart for it.
Clinton /Warren would be a clash from the get-go. Clinton is the type person that Warren has talked against, big money type. Unless Warren will hold her nose and accept it, but her supporters would see her as a sell out.

Hell they're all sellouts Hobo, I think their supporters already know they and just overlook it for what little they hope they can get.
