Just as conservatives quadrupled down after John McCain and Mitt Romney, liberals are rejecting pressure from their establishment and donor class to moderate.
In the long term, this polarization probably means some form of civil war. Short term, it means ’20 should be as entertaining as ’16…
He’s Bill Clinton w/out the charm. He’s Trump w/out the humor. He’s John Edwards waiting to happen.
There is every reason to expect Gavin Newsom’s candidacy to fall apart– but until it does, he checks

Like Hillary ’04, Warner ’08, Christie ’12, and pre-amnesty Rubio— Warren missed her moment.
Name ID and branding probably keeps her in the top tier until ’19-ish, but imagine how much more obnoxious this will sound by then…

50-year-old working mother?? I don’t like her chances to shed the weight.
She’s fucking great.
Articulate, bright, reasonably attractive, and the only US chick politician that can give speeches w/out sounding like a nagging ex-wife…

He can probably raise a lot of money.
|Castro Bros.||Imagine their faces on Iowa mailers??|

Who spells “Javier” w/ an “X”, anyway?
Trump’s odds of reerection currently stand at: 55%, up from 40% in Dec.
