1. Martin O'Malley.

But this is too early a question.

I'm fine with the other choices, too, although I personally think Castro needs more experience.

3. Joe Biden

I don't care how old he is, he's as sharp as a tack, ran rings around Ryan, and is a solid populist.

4. All things considered,based on what I know now and

Assuming dynamics aren't altered by unforeseen events,which is a most ridiculous assumption this early,it'd be a toss up between Warren and Clinton,making my poll vote "other"...


*ETA*

More accurately,based on what I THINK I know now......

6. O'Malley or Clinton.

I think Hillary has earned her chance if she is able and willing, although a part of me thinks the party might be better off with some new blood instead.

14. Doesn't O'Malley seem a tad too boring? He is totally composed and gentlemanly but I never saw

him really hold his own in a vigorous debate on TV, during the election .

I don't mean to diss your choice by any means...just an observation. :>

17. I once saw him spark it up pretty good on one of those panel shows.

I think he's got it in him.

I need to see more of him, and the others, before making a decision. But I like what I've seen of him so far.

9. Of the ones you listed, I only see Clinton and Cuomo as serious contenders.

Biden would be a serious candidate if he were a few years younger but I think his time has come and gone.

But he would need the support of the party, which was pulled out from under his feet in Iowa (BEFORE the scream)....

32. Same here.

I'm getting really sick of these 2016 speculations. It's fucking ridiculous. Why can't people let the current president get more than a week into his term before they start prognosticating about his successor?

37. we need him in the senate

very much. As much as I loathe Ohio politicians, he's the only one I would invite into my house for iced tea and cookies. Excepting Nina Turner most of the rest are vertical cockroaches (my congress critter Joyce Beatty is brand new, so I'm waiting to see what she is like.)

27. Only fools think we will have a REAL choice, the POTUS will be determined by the 1%

 

you get no say, only the illusion of democracy.

Now the question that should be asked is which one of the corporate approved candidate will you be voting for?

Perhaps a Biden/Clinton ticket?

That would make Hillary 73 in 2020.

Tough call...

31. Too early to tell.

I am excited to see who the new field is going to be. I would like to see someone less hawkish than Hillary. And I love me some Hillary. I don't think it is going to be Warren, but I would like someone with her economic views. One thing is for sure, if we come up with someone who can connect to people like Obama, with the economic beliefs of Warren, it will be a great 2016.
