Quote

Sen. Kamala Harris said she will decide whether to run for president during the holiday season — setting the stage for an announcement from one of the Democratic field’s most highly anticipated 2020 contenders as early as the next several weeks.

 

“It will ultimately be a family decision,” the California lawmaker told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski during the “Know Your Value” event in San Francisco on Saturday evening.

“And over the holiday,” Harris said, “I will make that decision with my family.”

Quite a chunk of people dislike Bernie in that thread, though Bellino's tweet strikes me as a more interesting take.

spoilers she is running unless she has some terrible career killing secret that has not come out during her time in the senate

Who are the other "thinking about it" people so far? I don't know much about Harris but the current default position is literally anybody over Trump.

Do you mean people who publicly said it?

 

Sanders has said if he feels he's the best candidate, he will run (so his run is dependent on the field).

Flake is such a monumental dumbass. Even his tepid meaningless "resistance" to Trump is going to make him dead in the water in the primaries, and even if by some miracle he makes it out of the primaries, everybody else is going to hate him for being a flaky phony.

Simple test: can she get back the rust belt and make Trump her bitch during the debates?

 

The rust belt loves complicated means tested tax credit schemes so she’ll be perfect

Not that it matters since I'm Canadian, but I'd be down for Harris over Trump (obviously). But I want an avowed progressive candidate first and foremost. The US needs to tackle three big things if it wants to survive:

 

1) Global warming (national carbon tax)

2) Universal health care

3) Income & wealth inequality (through tax reform increasing taxes on the rich and decreasing for the middle and poor)

538 put together a list in October.

 

 

One metric that won't decide my vote but that I really want to see in a Democratic candidate is that they're not in their late 60s-70s. Bernie is 77, Biden is 76, Warren is 69. I like all of them to various degrees, but I'd much prefer someone in their 50s.

 

Harris will absolutely run, and I'd be fine with her.

It's going to be fun when the Berniebros and Betobros go to war with one another.

 

Edit - Nevermind, I forgot Beto isn't a woman

I do hope those 99 Dems do know there is a minimum age limit for POTUS. They're not getting a Millennial POTUS yet.  

 

35 year olds are millennials now.

35 is the minimum but I can't see anyone that young getting in. JFK was in his mid-40s I believe.
