  • Bannon urges Hillary Clinton to challenge Trump in 2020: 'She can take a punch'

    Former White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is encouraging Hillary Clinton to fight President Trump for the White House in 2020. Bannon said the former secretary of state was already making it clear she considered herself a candidate and she should make a run because “she can take a punch.” “She’s a lion in winter,” Bannon told Politico. “Not only is she running, she should run. In the Democratic Party, the question is can anybody throw a punch or take a punch, and one thing we know about Hillary Clinton is she can take a punch.” The former executive chairman...

    Ready to go through the 2016 election all over again? Philippe Reines, who worked for Hillary Clinton going back to 2002 and was her senior adviser at the State Department, made the argument to Politico Friday that the former Democratic nominee might actually be the party's best hope for defeating Trump in 2020. He said no other Democrat has "anywhere near a base of 32 million people," especially not Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) or Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). The party, he feels, shouldn't dismiss her as a failed candidate because she's "smarter" and "tougher" than most, and she "could raise money...

    Hillary Clinton may not be through with her presidential ambitions. Although she is 0-2, perhaps the third time is the charm. "It's curious why Hillary Clinton's name isn't in the mix - either conversationally or in formal polling - as a 2020 candidate," former Clinton aide Philippe Reines told Politico. "She's younger than Donald Trump by a year. She's younger than Joe Biden by four years. Is it that she's run before? This would be Bernie Sanders's second time, and Biden's third time. Is it lack of support? She had 65 million people vote for her."So, will she? "It's somewhere between highly unlikely...

    Get ready for the undercard debates. Democrats are completely out of power in Washington D.C. - for now, at least - but that hasn’t stopped a record number of them from eyeing the White House. Up to 30 Democrats are considering a 2020 presidential campaign, a figure underlining the true level of ambition within the party amid a burning desire to defeat President Trump and one of the widest-open fields in recent memory. Sixteen Democrats were tested in a CNN poll this month, ranging from old-timers like former Vice President Joe Biden and 2004 Democratic presidential nominee John Kerry to...
  • Michael Moore: ‘Beloved Americans’ Tom Hanks, Michelle Obama Could Defeat Trump in 2020

    Left-wing documentary filmmaker Michael Moore believes “beloved Americans” such as actor Tom Hanks or Michelle Obama are some of the few possible candidates who could defeat President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election. In an interview with Good Morning Britain‘s Piers Morgan, Michael Moore said that the Democratic Party needs to put forward a candidate with widespread appeal. “Democrats need to run a beloved American, someone people want to vote for,” Moore explained. “I’ve said for years that Oprah should run. I’ve asked Tom Hanks twice to run.” “Who doesn’t like Tom Hanks? Nobody, right? Tom Hanks would win,”...

    Julián Castro, the former San Antonio mayor and secretary of Housing and Urban Development for President Obama whose 2012 Democratic National Convention speech transformed him into a national leader overnight, is a hard man to keep track of. For months, the 44-year-old Castro has been hopscotching between Nevada, Florida, Arizona and other battleground states to campaign for Democrats ahead of the 2018 midterms. He dutifully trekked to the Iowa State Fair in August for a turn on the famous political soapbox. Last weekend, Castro was back in Iowa to stump for Democrat J.D. Scholten, who is challenging alt-right-winger and neo-Nazi...

    At a town hall meeting last month, Sen. Elizabeth Warren finally revealed she was taking “a hard look” at running for president. Now it’s clear just how hard she’s looking. Monday’s grandiose, made-for-media detailing of her Native American ancestry — complete with DNA documentation — erased any questions about the Massachusetts Democrat‘s intent.

    Once more unto the breach, dear friends? A Hillary Clinton-Donald Trump rematch in 2020 would be the most hyped political fight of all time. It would also be the most brutal, mind-numbing, soul-destroying election in our history. The amount of money raised by the DNC and assorted super PACs would topple all previous records. Billions of dollars would go up in flames. The media coverage would be relentless. It would monopolize everyone's time and attention. The World Series would be relegated to ESPN3 in favor of more debates. It would be the election to end all elections — almost literally,...

    Former Vice President Joe Biden is leading the field of prospective 2020 Democratic candidates, according to a recent poll from CNN. The CNN/SSRS poll, which surveyed 1,009 adults between October 4 and 7, found that one-third—or 33 percent—of Democrats and independents who leaned Democratic thought Biden would be the most likely to take on President Trump in the 2020 presidential election.

    Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris of California has scheduled her first campaign trip to Iowa before Election Day, stoking speculation about a potential 2020 presidential campaign. The first-term senator plans stops on Oct. 22-23 in what will be her first visit to nation’s leadoff presidential caucus state since she was elected in 2016. She was last in Iowa when, as San Francisco’s district attorney, she campaigned for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential bid. Harris is among a large group of Democrats, including several senators, who are contemplating a challenge to President Donald Trump. She has won increased attention in recent weeks for...

    President Donald Trump said during a Saturday night rally in Kansas that he is “dreaming” of running against Democrats in the 2020 presidential election. “So far, I’m dreaming of those [2020 presidential] candidates,” Trump said. “I see those candidates before my eyes. Every night before I go to sleep. Sometimes while I’m sleeping I love them so much.” Trump went on to slam a long list of Democrats that he views as potential challengers in the 2020 race, including Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker. “I’ve got more Indian blood in me than Pocahontas, and I have none,” Trump said,...

The mayor logged 112 days, or nearly one-third of his time, away from California over the last 12 months, according to his public calendar. In August alone, he was out of state for 19 days, travels that included vacationing in the Berkshires, meeting with firefighter union leaders in Boston and hobnobbing with billionaire Ron Perelman in the Hamptons. The Los Angeles Times analyzed Garcetti’s daily schedule and campaign filings, and news reports for the last year, counting from...
