    Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) has reportedly shopped a book to a top New York publisher titled, Speaking Truth: Hard Facts and Hope for America’s Future, fueling talk of a potential run for president in 2020. “Senator Harris has been encouraged by many people over the years to write a second book and is actively considering it,” Lily Adams, communications director for Harris, told the Daily Beast, which acquired a copy of the book proposal.
  • Democrats Are Primed for 2018 and Looking Pretty in 2020

    Throughout the 2016 election cycle and ever since, I’ve been hearing that the Democratic Party has no bench. This is 100 percent true. When it comes to credible presidential prospects, the Democratic Party has several rows of benches. The Democratic Party has bleachers. Dozens of prominent Democrats are at least flirting with running in 2020, and while it’s easy to look at them and play Goldilocks — too cold, too hot, too bald, too blond, too Wall Street, too wordy — it’s just as easy to believe. The perfect person? The party certainly lacks that. But potentially effective candidates? It’s...

    The hiring stage of the 2020 shadow primary is underway. At least a dozen possible Democratic presidential candidates have begun bolstering their teams by adding aides with campaign experience to their Senate staffs, personal offices or 2018 reelection payrolls. The hires are never explicitly advertised or designed to be about 2020. But the behind-the-scenes shuffle is a long-overdue stage in the traditional precampaign scramble. Potential candidates who have run before — like Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Vice President Joe Biden — largely have their core teams in place.

  • Warren rejects DNA test idea to prove Native American ancestry: (trunc)

    Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., argued that her family’s claim to Native American ancestry is an indelible part of who she is — something that can never be taken away. Warren defended herself on NBC’s “Meet the Press with Chuck Todd” Sunday morning when asked what she thought about taking an easily accessible DNA test, such as those offered by 23andMe or Ancestry, to settle the ongoing controversy over her heritage. Rather than address that question specifically, Warren told a story about how her mother and father, born and raised in Oklahoma, met as teenagers and fell head-over-heels in love. Her...

    WASHINGTON – President Trump should have a conservative challenger in 2020 who believes in free trade, limited government and economic freedom, said outgoing Republican Sen. Jeff Flake. “I do,” Flake of Arizona responded Sunday when asked if Trump needs an opponent from the right. “It would be a tough go in a Republican primary. The Republican Party is the Trump party right now. But that’s not to say it will stay that way, ” he said. Flake, a frequent Trump critic, is retiring from the Senate because he said his traditional conservative views and temperament aren’t accepted in the age...

    FULL TITLE: Kamala Harris: ‘I Support’ Oakland Mayor Who Helped Criminal Illegal Aliens Evade Deportation ‘100 Percent’ Senator and potential 2020 Democratic presidential candidate Kamala Harris (D-CA) says she “100 percent” supports Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf’s (D) decision to help criminal illegal aliens evade deportation ahead of a raid by federal immigration officials. During a fundraiser for the YMCA’s “Y for Youth Luncheon,” Harris defended Schaaf, who made national headlines last month when she warned criminal illegal aliens of a coming raid in Oakland by the Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency. Subsequently, Schaaf helped many criminal illegal aliens with...

    Liberal billionaire George Soros threatened President Donald Trump and suggested he wouldn't be around much longer last month, according to the Daily Wire. During a speech at the end of January at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, the Democratic kingpin suggested "dark forces" were involved, and would make Trump disappear by 2020. "Clearly I consider the Trump administration a danger to the world," Soros said. "But I regard it as a purely temporary phenomenon that will disappear in 2020 or even sooner." Soros, still upset he donated more than $30 million to Hillary Clinton's failed 2016 presidential campaign,...

    I voted for Trump in 16 and I've given to his 2020 campaign. But I had to send them an e-mail that the 2nd Amendment is a Red Line for me. I will not tolerate any Gun Control legislation, we have too much now that infringes on my God Given right! I wrote that if the President persists in supporting new Gun Control Legislation he will irrevocably lose my support for 2020! I will instead support someone else to receive the nomination. Telling that witch from Kalifornia to put in her Gun Ban was beyond the pale and intolerable! The...

    Eric Holder, former President Barack Obama’s attorney general, confirmed Wednesday that he’s considering throwing his hat in the ring for the 2020 presidential race. “We’ll see,” he said during a breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor in Washington, DC. He was asked if he’s mulling a run for the White House because he’s learning how to raise funds and giving political speeches. “I think I’ll make a decision by the end of the year about whether or not there is another chapter in my government service,” he replied. Holder, who served as attorney general from 2009 to 2015, has...

    JFK, Obama, and overweight Bubba. They win with a younger pretty boy who has the gift of gab. It gives them just enough to get past those who do not look beyond appearances. Jimmy Carter was a failure like LBJ and Dukakis the technocrat. On paper they don't win. Who is the next one? Gavin Newsom. 'Legalized' gay weddings as SF mayor for the Profile in Courage types. Republicans can nip him in the bud by voting for the Mexican LA mayor. Otherwise it's back to the future.

    Former President Obama’s long-serving attorney general, Eric Holder, is considering a political run in 2020, possibly for president. “We’ll see,” he said when asked about a bid for the Democratic nomination. Holder, addressing reporters at a media breakfast sponsored by the Christian Science Monitor, said that he will make a decision this year. "I think I'll make a decision by the end of the year about whether or not there is another chapter in my government service," he said. Also asked if he planned a career in politics, he said again, “I’ll see.” During the hour-long session, Holder spoke of...

    Oprah running for president may sound like a good idea to some, but Americans aren’t buying it. A new Morning Consult/Politico poll found that just 24 percent of the nearly 2,000 registered voters surveyed actually want her to compete for the White House in 2020. Fifty-nine percent think she shouldn’t run — and 17 percent said they weren’t sure or had no opinion on the matter. “If you were watching cable news the Monday after the Golden Globes, you would have thought the numbers would say 99 percent of Americans want her to run,” explained Robert Thompson, director of the...

    A host of celebrities are already backing her possible candidacy. "I want her to run for president," Meryl Streep said after Winfrey's speech. Rev. Jesse Jackson wrote Oprah "is eminently qualified to be President. She is a patriot, she has integrity ... she can raise our moral standing in the world." Her possible candidacy also received support from MSNBC's Joy Ann Reid, comedian Larry Wilmore, actor John Stamos, and singer/actress Janelle Monae. But even as Oprah is often portrayed as an unblemished American success story, she would bring to any political campaign significant baggage. Specifically, here are 12 skeletons in...

    Oprah’s speech was hollow, cliche-ridden, and did nothing to truly address Hollywood’s YEARS of complicity to sexual harassment culture. Please don’t underestimate Americans nor American women - plenty of whom watch Oprah yet still turned out in droves for Trump. She is a good often underrated actress though, in films. More than a business mogul and talk show host for sure. But the primary Democrat threat to Trump? NO. Her speech as a launching pad of a new era? NO. More like the last gasps (or final hurrah) of an old one. She's not going anywhere, but what I sensed...
