I mostly echo what Casimira said. I'm not fixated on Bernie and what mostly matters to me is that any Republican candidate be crushed, but would be ecstatic to see an effective progressive in the White House. I think Warren would have a better chance in 2020 than she would have had in 2016 not only because of the reason Casimira cited, but also because I think Warren is now more in the public's consciousness.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg has to hold on for dear life so that Trump can't appoint another right-wing supreme court justice.
I too think Bernie Sanders is too old. When you see how being a president takes its toll -- look at the pictures of Obama from 2008 to 2016! -- I don't think anyone in their 80s should take on such a position. Age is not necessarily correlated with wisdom. On the contrary, older people are often looking back rather than forwards.
I don't know much about her but Elizabeth Warren strikes me as a perfect target for the Republican machine to destroy: smart, liberal and female.
Yes, Obama greyed and looks much older (still looks fine, though). Tony Blair also changed dramatically - guess we notice this more among younger leaders. Won't be surprised to see the very young President Macron acquire some grey hairs and lines with the ongoing crisis.
Bernie is one of those old guys who jogs and keeps fit, but there is always more risk of a debilitating condition - or a sudden death - as we reach the tail end of our lifespan. He would certainly need a presidentiable - and considerably younger - running mate.
By the way, Warren is now 69, so she'll be over 70 if she does run in two years.
The world has changed, perhaps unfortunately in terms of whom we would like our leaders to be. Don't think of your own opinions in terms of future elections but think about what the mass of voters wants. Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren might be suitable in second place on the ticket, but it would be wise to look for a 21st century person to be on top. Of course, even though I continue to follow American politics a bit, at the moment I can't think of any younger person who could excite the masses except maybe Beto O'Rourke or someone else of that ilk. O'Rourke has the advantage of appealing to the Latino Americans, which are the largest growing group. I am sorry to say this (having majored in political science in university -- a totally useless occupation), but strategy is far more important than convictions in every country of the world.
Most of those states would greatly benefit from Medicare For All.
No shortage of hunters in rural Québec with huge forests. I can't fathom why people don't have to register guns when they have to register cars and other potentially hazardous property, which unlike guns are not designed to kill.
Yes, very interesting, but I'd call her multiracial, or certainly a person of colour. She is Jamaican (probably biracial) but also Tamil (South Indian, brown). Sort of reminds me of Obama, though he was biracial East African (black) and sort of middle American (white) but also had a very strong connection to Southeast Asia. Global people.
I think after the recent mid-terms it is defeatist to talk about red or blue states, as we're seeing major shifts in voting habits. Also, in the gazillion articles posted since 2016, it's been shown over and over that purple needs to be included in voting maps. After Orange County went blue, we can assume anything can happen.
