Skip to comments.Are Democrats brave enough to run a woman against Donald Trump?
Posted on 06/17/2018 9:06:09 AM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Democrats agree that Donald Trumps history of bragging about groping and assaulting women is unacceptable, but they dont agree about how to deal with it in 2020.
The tension has spilled into the open in the ongoing debate about Sen. Kirsten Gillibrands role in galvanizing Senate Democrats to call for Sen. Al Franken to step down over misconduct. Even white college-educated women, Hillary Clintons biggest supporters, are divided.
We loved him, Marsha Pearcy, 58, said sadly to Gillibrand at a private event for professional women in Washington on Tuesday night. Pearcy barely finished saying Frankens name when quiet murmurs and palpable tension spread across the room of dozens of mostly white and mostly 20- and 30-something women.
At its core, the Franken controversy is about how Democrats believe their party should respond to #MeToo as they prepare to take on Trump in 2020. One faction wants to battle Trump on his turf, even if it means giving one of their own a pass on sexual misconduct. Trump doesnt apologize for even worse. Why should Democrats? Ideals be damned. Theres too much at stake.
Another faction believes Democrats must do better that they need to stand with women and clean house no matter who the offender is, even a popular liberal senator. These liberals think the future of the party is rooted in the women-led resistance and the energy thats driven a record number of women to run for Democratic office this year....

How'd that work out last time?
The gender-deranged think that sane people vote identity politics, when they actually vote issues.
Their only hope is a Maxine Waters & Sheila Jackson Lee ticket.
The would be nuts to run anyone but a minority, and they would probably do better with a male minority. I don’t thing male minority voters turnout for a woman like they would for a man.
After all, it worked so well last time.
Who? Elizabeth Warren? Kamala Harris? Yes please! Run one of them. Or both.
There's always the Wiener - Holder ticket!
It will be Harris.
They need to run Rue Paul. Covers all the bases.
Obama came out of nowhere. The difference between the minority turnout between Obama and Clinton would have won the 2016 election for Clinton. They would be nuts not to try to get the minority turn out up again for 2020.
Hillary is still alive, run her ass.
I know I stopped reading right there.
the fact that whether or not their candidate is a woman is one of their big concerns, shows that they are not serious about actual issues.
gillibrand will get destroyed in a general election...she was cuomo’s right hand man during the housing collapse and while she was pushing horrible FNMA mortgages which helped fuel the collapse her husband was betting against those mortgages and made a killing...
Worked out AWE$OME for us. ;-)
“he would be nuts to run anyone but a minority, and they would probably do better with a male minority. “
Nope, rightly or wrongly, Obama has left too many people with the impression that a minority will mander to them in the election, then go all in for racial identity when they are IN office.
The dems would be far better to run a decent successful white guy who is very slightly left of center. And not a mangina like Tim Kaine.
Well everyone knows that the most important characteristic in any given leader is genitalia type.
So that rules out a “Michelle” Obama candidacy.
Ryan & Warren
A socialist-lite leftist and a crazy, insane marxist....and both support the destruction of our sovereign borders.
