Who's running Post 8
Sept 16, 2019

Posted on 09/16/2019 5:25:48 AM PDT by upchuck

Post #8. 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 week, likely on Monday, with the dropouts from the previous week and newly declared candidates noted. This post is virtually identical to the one from last week. The dust biter(s) from last week: disappointingly, none. Newly declared candidates from last week: none, thankfully, but ya never know.

Please let me know via FReepmail if you find errors. Thanks! upchuck

Theory: they all want to run for the nomination, but none of them want to actually be the nominee, lest they be Mondaled byTrump.

For Biden it will either be the White House or a nursing home in January, 2021.

Or—maybe the White House will become a nursing home. ;-)

I prefer

Cull: When people cull politicians, they kill them, especially the weaker members of a particular group of them, in order to reduce or limit their number

Given the current state of the race, I wouldn’t be surprised if Rahm Emanuel gets discussed as a potential candidate this month.
