We need a candidate named "Hillary Sanders" to run in 2020!

That's based on extensive research into commentary on this forum. So, can we find a person with that name to head the presidential ticket in three years? Actually, it shouldn't be all that difficult. There are a number of persons with that name living in the United States. I found several in a quick search on Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/search/str/Hillary%2BSanders/keywords_users

Others who are not Facebook members are sure to exist all across the nation.

All we need to do is find a "Hillary Sanders" who is a natural-born citizen over 35 years old and a Democrat (or Independent, I suppose). She should also probably have a college degree and be presentable on camera. The name recognition factor would be instantly solved. Perhaps we should form a 2020 Hillary Sanders for President committee right here on DU and being vetting people with that name to present as a candidate.

This seems like the best possible way to take advantage of the popularity of previous candidates and unite the Democratic Party behind one candidate with a name we can all enthusiastically support.

2. I think "Hillary Sanders" is more euphonious.

Plus, it's time we had a woman as President, frankly. The name "Bernie Clinton" lacks gravitas, as well, I think. On the other hand, "Bernie" can also be a nickname for women named Bernice or Bernadette, so perhaps that would work. I also found a very distinguished looking black man with the name "Bernie Clinton," so perhaps your suggestion isn't without merit.

7. I searched, but found nobody with that name.

We do need to be practical, after all.

8. I know you were being facetious...

Was a little worried I might sound like I was criticizing you.

I'm hoping a decent candidate will emerge from the scrum and take the reins.

10. I know. I was clarifying for others

who might mistake my post for something it is not. Hard as that is to believe, it has happened.

9. Lot of truth to that

Maybe rethink our attachment to people who have been around for decades and whose negatives consistently flirt with the 50% mark.

11. I like Adam Schiff

except that he doesn't get us what we would already get... California.

same thing w/ Warren.

We need someone who can convince the "purple" states that they're being screwed by Republicans.

The good news is that the latest polling says half of the country wants the ACA.... something to build on.

(on edit: there's a huge problem w/ gerry-mandering and the loaded Supreme Court is going to crush us.)
