    At this moment the race for the Democratic nomination in 2020 appears to be completely wide open, but there is one potential candidate lurking in the shadows that could change everything. For a moment, I would like you to imagine what a perfect presidential candidate for the Democrats in 2020 would look like. In this politically correct era, it would help if the candidate was a woman, and it would definitely be a plus if she could appeal to key groups of minority voters. Being a hero to the LGBT community would be important for any Democratic candidate, and it...

Later in the week, his campaign said, he will go to New Hampshire. Mr. Castro, in prepared remarks that he was set to deliver in San Antonio on Saturday, said, “When my grandmother...

    At the midpoint of Donald Trump's presidency, those in his party who seemingly should be supporting him are as critical as ever.  Now it's the issue of his character. NeverTrump Jonah Goldberg recently penned an article, "Character is Destiny," proclaiming that "Trump's character will be his downfall." Evidence of this poor character is "[t]he president's style, specifically his insults and Twitter addiction."  Goldberg goes farther, saying, "They are the product of astonishing levels of narcissism, insecurity, and intellectual incuriosity." He cites examples of how Trump fires Cabinet members or other officials, not face to face to face, but through surrogates, and his...

    Former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told the New York Times Magazine that President Donald Trump is the worst United States president ever. “I think he is without question the worst president we’ve ever had,” Reid said. “We’ve had some bad ones, and there’s not even a close second to him.” Reid, who has pancreatic cancer and “does not have long to live,” spoke to New York Times Magazine writer Mark Leibovich about Trump. The former senator called Trump dishonest and amoral. “Trump is an interesting person. He is not immoral but is amoral,” he said. “Amoral is when you...

    One months from now, most of the contenders for the 2020 Democratic nomination will have officially declared their intention to run, according to NBC News. In a report published Friday, NBC News said that Senators Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris and Corey Booker are all planning to announce their campaigns next month, while a handful of other contenders are also gearing up for campaign launches of their own. The reason candidates are planning to announce so early in the cycle really comes down to one factor: Money, as NBC explained. Particularly in what's expected to be an intense battle of attrition...

    Hillary Clinton surprised an 8-year-old girl with a letter earlier this month after the elementary school student lost an election for class president to a boy by a single vote. Martha Kennedy Morales, a third-grader at a private Quaker school in College Park, Md., decided to run for the top office as part of a lesson on government in which elections for class president and Congress were held, the Washington Post reported. Morales told the paper she lost to a “popular” fourth-grade boy and was affirmed as vice president. “As I know too well, it’s not easy when you stand...

    Former GOP Sen. Rick Santorum (Pa.) on Sunday said he believes the Democratic Party could win in 2020 if they pick someone "unexpected" as their party's presidential nominee. Santorum, asked if there were any potential Democratic candidates he was afraid of, pointed to previous presidential contests, saying all of the Democratic candidates who won were "not the favorite" at the time. "When the Democrats win, they pick someone unexpected or someone who’s not the favorite," Santorum, a CNN analyst, said on CNN's "State of the Union." "[Former Presidents] Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter," he listed. "When they pick [failed...

    It would be a mistake to write off Hillary Clinton. She is the lady who will not go away. She also may be the lady who is coming back for another go at the presidency. And despite her embarrassing defeat in 2016 at the hands of a crass political amateur — and her refusal to graciously accept that defeat — she is still standing. Practically every hopeful in the flash mob of Democrats planning to run for president in 2020 will have to go through her. She still rules the Democratic Party. And if she has her way, she will...

    The caravan is here. The invasion has begun. Unfortunately, the judicial branch continues to hamper President Trump’s duty to defend the citizens of the United States. A federal judge stopped the Trump administration from refusing asylum to immigrants crossing our southern border illegally on Tuesday. President Trump issued an order earlier this month saying that anyone who crosses the border would be ineligible for asylum. The president stated that the asylum ban was needed to stop the invasion of a massive wave of illegal immigrants in multiple caravans claiming refugee status. By T. Rowe Price U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar...

    Full title: Jeff Flake reportedly considering 2020 Trump challenge: 'Somebody needs to run on the Republican side'Arizona GOP Sen. Jeff Flake isn’t shutting the door on a possible White House run against President Trump. The Arizona lawmaker – who announced last year that he would not be seeking re-election to the Senate – told Politico Friday that he hasn’t “ruled it out,” nor has he “ruled it in.” “Just, somebody needs to run on the Republican side,” Flake said, adding that he thought Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., would also be good Republican alternatives to challenge...

    Booker touts 'Spartacus moment' over Kavanaugh documents Mike Emanuel previews the final round of Kavanaugh hearings. New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy on Thursday paved way for U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, a fellow Democrat, to simultaneously run for both U.S. Senate and the presidency in 2020. The governor signed a bill that many now call “Cory’s Law” that allows any member of the U.S. House or Senate from New Jersey to run for those offices in addition to pursuing the White House. Booker, who recently made trips to Iowa and New Hampshire in hopes of building nationwide support, is expected to seek the...

Clinton's comments come as speculation has increased over whether she will launch another bid after the midterm elections. "Do you want to run again?" Recode’s Kara Swisher asked during a Friday night Q&A with Clinton. "No," Clinton replied quickly, sparking laughter from the audience. But when Swisher pressed her further, she added: "I’d like to be president." Clinton went on to say that "there’s going...
