I wonder if Gore is thinking about it.
One Democrat who apparently isn’t thinking about it this year but could give Hitlery a run for her money is Andrew Cuomo. According to the New York Post, he’s targeting 2020. He thinks this is a GOP year too.
That's how the fake opposition system works. The Democrats run things for 4-8 years, do a terrible job, so people vote for Republicans. Then after 4-8 years of Republicans doing more or less the same thing, voters think bringing Democrats back will somehow solve the original problem. And the cycle repeats itself.
So for ambitious politicians, as opposed to placeholders like Bob Dole or John Kerry, it's important to run at the end of the opposing party's "turn" at the wheel.
