3. It may have to be someone from outside the Dem career track- Sanders, Krugman, Reich, Steiglitz

or some other public intellectual. I can't think of many elected pols who have both the stature and trustability who might contend for the nomination from the Left. There are a few Senate progressives or populists that might get my support - Boxer, Brown, Harkin, Wyden. I would contingently support any of the members of the Democratic Progressive Caucus:
