    I really like what I've seen from this woman so far. She's got the most class of any in the race. Does anyone think she'll gain any traction?

      I like her as well, but don't think she has a chance thus far. Who knows though, lots can happen in the next few months.

      I like her, too. It's hard to say whether she can break away from the bottom of the pack. I'm  rooting for her, though.

      I doubt it...

      The Democratic party is going to come down to Biden, Sanders, and maybe Warren...The others are to far behind (currently) and the party will end up dropping them from the race. (My forecast)

        I agree. I'll stick my neck out and say Biden will get the nomination and pick Harris as his running mate.

        Sanders is too far left. Warren is too close geographically to Biden.

          We must be using the same crystal ball promisem, that's the way I see it too; Biden/Harris. With the hopes that her VP seat would be a powerful one, not just ceremonial.

          I also like Gabbard but don't see the party getting behind her.

            Thanks, GA. Harris also gives Biden a boost on the age issue. And Harris as a VP is a major first for women and positions her to become President when Biden steps down after one term.  smile

      A House member from Hawaii is quite a long shot for President.

      Some of these candidates are simply trying to get some national attention for down the road if they run for Senate or governor. Maybe she is one of them.

      If she wins statewide office and does well, she'll start to get some meaningful attention. At least that's what usually happens.

      Still, Hawaii doesn't carry much weight in national politics.

      So do I, I even researched her and wrote an article on her, that is how impressed I was with her presence on the debate stage.

      I also think she will be muzzled and cast aside, her politics are not in favor with the Democrats, and her very adamant stance against interfering with other nations will have a lot of powerful influencers making sure the DNC does not choose her as the poster child of the party.

        I heard today that a recent poll said 30% of registered democrats say none of the contenders reflect their values.

        This is really sad.  In a real world this woman would be a contender.  But the DNC left the real world behind a while ago,

    She's theJohn Kasich of the 2020 race. Such a decent, intelligent and well spoken person.

    Why are there so few of those in politics anymore?

      She sorta reminds me of Obama that way...

        Yes. Maybe so. I don't know. She is just so level headed, grounded and decent. I think she is underrated by the democratic voters.

      I agree Live to Learn. Kasich was my presidential vote - as a write-in.

        I can't do write ins. If I don't have a candidate I'm for I vote against tyke one I don't want to see in office more.

        I liked Kasich also. Too bad he wasn't on the ticket...

          He was my man all the way. I doubt he would have accepted an offer to workwith Trump.

      I think quite a few of the candidates are decent, intelligent, and well spoken.
