DES MOINES, Iowa — Former Secretary of State John Kerry — one of Joe Biden's highest-profile endorsers — was overheard Sunday on the phone at a Des Moines hotel explaining what he would have to do to enter the presidential race amid "the possibility of Bernie Sanders taking down the Democratic Party — down whole."

That is true.

But you know that in 2024 a Democrat will win.

It might be AOC.

If Trump wins reelection in 2020, a Republican will not win again until 2032 or 2036.
