Kind of a silly question, I think I know the answer. But, when does the next cycle start?

Is it the day after the November election? Actually, what I'm really wondering is..has anyone announced or suspected to for 2018 yet?

I realize they should have jumped into 2016, but with all the new enthusiasm for our party, I was just thinking about it. I am wondering if 2018 might be an interesting cycle.

Thirty-nine percent of voters nationwide said they would be more likely to vote for the Democratic ticket if Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders were on it, according to a new poll from Monmouth University.

The poll tested six potential Democratic and six potential Republican vice presidential picks, and Sanders was the only name to stand out from the pack. Among undecided voters, a whopping 50 percent said they would be more likely to support the Democrats if itís a Clinton-Sanders ticket. That could be a substantial number of voters ó the HuffPollster model indicates that 9.8 percent of voters are undecided.

Although voters would like Sanders as the vice presidential nominee, the Clinton campaign reportedly does not view a Clinton-Sanders ticket as an option. Sources told the Wall Street Journal that Hillary Clinton is not considering Bernie Sanders as a running mate.

Clintonís campaign is instead exploring other alternatives and has reportedly begun to narrow its VP shortlist. Among the floated names are Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine, and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro of Texas.
