2020 Elections
The 2020 Presidential Election will be the polar opposite of 2016. In 2020 we will see north of 20 Democrats candidates as we saw the same flood of Republican candidates in 2016. Donald Trump 'should' be the Republican nominee as the incumbent President, but may get a primary challenge or two, given the 'never Trumper' crowd in the Republican party. The first is William Weld. Below we will list the growth of the 2020 Democrat field, as it develops. Howard Schultz, a Democrat, has announced his candidacy, but has problems with the leftward lean of the Democrat party & they with him. He may end up as an Independent candidate. Declared & accepted Democrat candidates to date: John Delaney, Andrew Yang, Tulis Gabbard, Pete Buttigieg, Elizabeth Warren, Julian Castro, Kirsten Gillibrand, Kamala Harris, Marianne Williamson, Cory Booker, Amy Klobuchar, Bernie Sanders, Jay Inslee, John Hickenlooper, Beto O'Rourke, Tim Ryan, Michael Bennet, Wayne Messam, Eric Swalwell, Seth Moulton, Joe Biden, Steve Bullock, Bill DeBlasio ...

They were white and male and every one of them came to office with experience in the government, military or both. Barack Obama, the first African American president, broke one mold. Donald Trump, who had neither military nor government experience, broke the other. In their own ways, Obama and Trump were two of the most unlikely people ever elected to the presidency, raising the question of whether voters in America are using a new lens through which to judge the qualities and qualifications of presidential aspirants.
