Posted on 08/15/2019 12:10:22 PM PDT by upchuck
With so many rats running for president in 2020 it's hard to keep up with who's in and who's out. Hopefully, this post will help. Below is a list of declared candidates, their occupation, the date they dropped from the race (if they did) and misc. notes.
This thread will be reposted each time a candidate drops out or a new candidate declares. As you can see, Mike Gravel, Eric Swalwell and John Hickenlooper are already gone.
Please let me know via FReepmail if you find errors. Thanks! upchuck

And I thought the 2016 Republican primary field was crowded.
And thank you very much.
Gravel dropped like a stone.
He couldn’t cobble a campaign together.
Aw, that’s mean. The poor guy is 89 years old. Let’s have respect for our elders. :)
Only three governors. And seven Senators.
How far we have fallen.
When, as Merle Haggard would say, “a buck was still silver”, being a governor (or a five-star equivalent General) was practically a requirement for the big job.
Only three sitting US Senators have ever been elected President - in 1920, 1960, and 2008/12. None of them accomplished anything meaningful. How BAD each of them was is a matter of judgement (mine is that all 3 were catastrophic) - but none of them achieved greatness.
The main qualification to become a US Senator is being a bullshit artist. Some States demand “red” bullshit artists, some prefer “blue” bullshit artists.
But neither is a qualification for taking over the largest executive operation on the planet.
I believe. . .
The only reason so many absolute unknowns and inept people are running for POTUS on the democratic side is because there are no winners in the party. The leadership (?) of the party is counting on a complete deadlock at the convention and then they ‘draft’ Moochella “I hate America” Obama and capitalize on her newfound popularity. It has been the game plan for a long, long time.
With this late arrival it will be difficult to kill her campaign so late in the game. I would suggest to President Trump that he begin a campaign to make sure everyone knows just how idiotic and evil this woman actually is. A few quick tweets will get the fakes news rolling and for a short time this will hurt POTUS with women voters but it will happen anyway. better to get it over with and repair any perceived damage now than wait until the campaign is rolling.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, as was once said.
I agree with your assessment of the candidacies of all of these bozos in that the eventual Dim nominee has not yet declared. However, I do not necessarily agree with the “Moochelle” angle. I lean toward a dark horse candidate yet to be named but not Moochelle.
It's even blue, their fav color :)
Mike for pres? Maybe but I doubt it.
There has been a lot of grooming in the past year or so. Most popular person, most popular female, etc. Mucvh more popular than Hillary.
Women’s vote (radical feminists Democrats)
So, Yeah Maybe
