7. I totally agree.

I was crazy about Kamala until she turned on Al Franken. Now I don't have a fave, except O'Malley.

2. As a contemporary

of all these great patriots, I suggest they all are too old to effectively be President. We need new blood and new ideas as we head for the middle of the 21st Century

3. None of the above.

All wonderful people, but we need younger blood at the top of the ticket.

The same for leadership in the House and Senate.

6. ???

 

BS-2020-80 YEARS OLD--Joe Biden-2020-79 years old--Dr. Elizabeth Warren-2020-72 years of age--experience is one thing---DIMINISHED CAPACITY ANOTHER REALITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Let us pick from a group that will be vital and STRONG in 2020. I have nothing against any one you put forth, I would like rational reasoning to prevail for our choice of Party leadership in the upcoming fight for our goddamn life and democracy.

12. I don't think any of them have diminished capacity

70s is not that old, especially if you have kept active both physically and mentally.

8. These are not WaPo rankings.

According to the link in the story, these updated personal rankings are based solely on the opinion of the author Aaron Blake. Some of the names on his shortlist are frankly insulting, but at least Mark Zuckerberg was dropped from Blake's previous rankings.

December 22:
"So whose stock is rising and falling at this early juncture? We ranked the top 15 possible Democratic nominees three months ago, and today we do it again."

September 8:
"That makes what I'm about to do both wildly speculative and lengthy. Below are what I see as the top 15 contenders for the Democratic nomination in 2020, ranked in ascending order."

9. But will they be alive in 2020? They are all OLD.

Biden and Sanders will be well in their 80s I hope none of them run. But both the men probably will if they are living....something about male ego.

10. None of these, no way

They need to be in a Geritol commercial, not running for national office.
We need youth on ticket, lets shoot for someone in the 45 -55 range.

11. It's a meaningless opinion piece

I've seen it repeated frequently, here and elsewhere online, by fans of the people on that list. No one else takes it seriously.
