My cousin asked me about my opinions on who the Democrats should nominate for 2020.
I found it difficult to answer. So far there's no one head and shoulders above the crowd.
If I had to choose, maybe Hickenlooper, the Colorado governor, but that's based on almost nothing. My feelings now are somewhat similar to my feelings in 1969-71. We have a president I can't stand, who's not a likable person. What the Democrats ended up doing was choosing McGovern, a very fine man, but too easily caricatured as out of the mainstream and Nixon won by a landslide.
That's my fear this time: our dislike of Trump and Republican/Trump positions will be so strong we end up with a candidate who can't win.
