Sherrod Brown Won't Run For President

I like Brown and he would have been on my list https://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/sherrod-brown-wont-run-for-president
Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) won’t run for president after all, he announced Thursday.

“Being president isn’t something I have dreamed of my whole life or even for years,” Brown said in a statement. “My goal for our tour is to make the dignity of work the centerpiece of the Democrats’ 2020 campaign because I believe that’s the way to beat Donald Trump.”

Thanks, Goth

2. I was looking forward to him being better known on the national stage.

 

If Kamala Harris should become our nominee, a "primary-enhanced" Sherrod Brown would have to be on a very short list of VP contenders. Still would be.

5. Not unexpected but I am still disappointed.

 

I will have to revert to Undecided.

From what I've seen so far, I may very well be undecided up until the nominee is certain.

Sigh.

I just hope that his "Dignity of Work" concept and platform are very high on the eventual nominee's list. It is important for winning the general election.

7. Yes. The dignity of work should absolutely be

 

a big part of our national discussion, and with it the dignity of a livable income.

6. Several newscasters and pundits have suggested that . . .

 

this announcement is a prologue to Joe Biden stepping in which will coalesce union support around one candidate. There was always the question of what would happen to Brown's Senate seat. From the man's own statement, he doesn't have that 'fire in the belly' for the job, hasn't "dreamed of the presidency his whole life or even for years".

That sounds like a reference to Uncle Joe.

That being said, I would have happily voted for Sherrod Brown had he remained and won the nomination. He strikes all the right notes.

8. Mixed feelings... but I'm glad he'll be working from the sidelines.

 

He's going to be important (and I'd guess he's stepping aside because he knows Biden is stepping in)

9. I like Sherrod Brown

 

but I am glad he is not running. We desperately need him in the Senate. That friggin louse Mike DeWine would have been able to name his replacement had he won the Presidency and we all know what that would mean.

10. I'm sad, but there are other Dems I like almost as well.

 

I’ll have to go undecided for awhile.
