Well they're lining up to challenge President Trump in 2020.
The campaign is already underway.
And a mass of Democrats seem convinced that one or another of them can take down the president. Remember: just about anything can happens in politics, In case you still don't believe that just remember what happened two-and-a-half years ago.
So, let's take a look at the crowded (and growing) Democrat field so far:
The former Governor of Colorado and the man who opened the door to legalized marijuana for recreational use. At 66, he's not exactly a newcomer and he does have that funny name. By after names like Huckabee and Obama, what's funny anymore?
The Governor of Washington. An unknown name from a state that hardly anyone thinks about -- someplace up there in the corner of the country. Our theory: the corners can be wacky places -- very wacky, for some reason. Not exactly a youngster; he's 68.
Crazy Uncle Bernie. Some people think his curmudgeonly persona makes him appealing. We think he's just a grouchy, whining old coot and one of the most consistently annoying public figures imaginable. Frankly, at 77, he reminds us of a cranky, badly reconstructed Bolshevik.
Another funny name. Her claim to fame? She's said to be the hardest member of Congress to work for. Reportedly, she's very mean to her staff. Have you ever had a boss that managed to alienate everybody? Imagine that kind of person as POTUS.
Pocahontas. It's hard to believe she'll ever live the whole Native American thing down. Beware of women with closely-cropped hair, granny glasses and sensible shoes. You know, that drearily efficient professorial look. Still, at 69 she's remarkably fit and quite well-preserved.
Spartacus. The Senator from Twitter. We can't quite figure this guy out. Yes, he's a relentless self-promoter. But we keep thinking there's some missing piece -- a part of the Booker puzzle that just hasn't been revealed to us. And this, too: an element of drama that quickly wears thin.
Another funny sounding name! In fact, the letters of the name even look funny together. Only 35, he's an Afghan war veteran, openly gay and married. A graduate of Harvard and a Rhodes Scholar, he's the Mayor of South Bend, Indiana -- not exactly a jumping-off point for the presidency. He'll be back again. Someday he'll run against Robert Francis (aka Beto) O'Rourke.
Did she really make some strategic boudoir conquests on her way to the top? That shouldn't play well in 2020. But, hey -- the rules are different for liberals, right? She recently described Washington as a "hot mess". She's only been in the US Senate for two years, but that didn't stop Obama so why should it stop her? Like Obama, she's multi-racial -- part Indian, part Jamaican. Her name, Kamala, comes from the Sanskrit word for lotus flower.
A former tech exec, he's a big proponent of a universal guaranteed income. The son of Taiwanese immigrants, he describes his upbringing as “pretty nerdy”. He wants to give everybody over the age of 18: $1,000 a month, no strings attached, paid for by a new tax on the companies benefiting most from automation. Like we said, ooohkay . . .
