    Looks like this is the first post-midterm (S)HE'S RUNNING announcement. Shape up for some more in the next few months, including Hillary, according to the chief strategist of her disastrous 2008 campaign :bruised:.

    He obviously won't win, I've barely even heard of him, but he's got some good populist credentials and an aggressively working-class message. Downsides - despite the biggest swing of the entire midterms, he didn't win his race (admittedly in West Virginia), he voted for Trump in 2016 and he's pro-coal on jobs grounds.

    It's Bernie bitch :disco:

    Watching most of the rest of the field launch their campaigns with no real vision then reading this list honestly fills me with confidence. He's going to win.

    Now that is a very nice little list of policies from Bernie, with a slight question mark against the lower drug prices one, where I'd need a little more information on what he has in mind.

    He'll never get in. America is too stubborn to vote for someone like him.

    I assumed he'll stick to the plan he introduced in January - peg the ridiculously expensive US prices to the average costs in the most economically developed countries and allow people to import cheaper drugs from abroad. He supports Elizabeth Warren's proposal for a federal generic drug manufacturer too.

    I'm suspicious about how the Democratic leadership and the corporate media are going to treat him but he's literally the most popular politician in America. His ideas are well-liked even by Republicans, young people absolutely love him and like Trump, he correctly recognises that most people hate bloodless establishment politics.

    The insane people on Twitter who all want to speak to Bernie's manager really aren't reflective of his wider reputation.

    Ojeda looks somewhat promising. Although at this point I'll take Spongebob Squarepants.

    Fuck off Hillary.

    Surely the primary voters wouldn't be stupid enough to go for Hillary again. If we really must have a centrist, surely someone who hasn't already lost once would be a base requirement.

    I don't really think she's going to run, there are way too many people in the race already, but she hasn't outright denied it yet so I put her on the list.

    The biggest sign is that other candidates are now slowly picking up the campaign staff that inspired "Hillary is your abuela!" and famously led her to the presidency. It would definitely be hilarious watching her navigate a third failed run but she'll probably endorse Kamala Harris.

    Of course Hillary won't run. Is there any precedent for a failed candidate running again?

    Kamala and Bernie are both appealing candidates.

    If you mean a failed presidential candidate, then Nixon lost as the Republican nominee to JFK in 1960 but won the election in 1968.

    There was talk of the haunted tree man John Kerry running again in 2020 but thankfully that was a while ago. He would be the most physically flexible candidate.

    I thought the no-hoper gay mayor of nowheresville seemed quite pleasant when I saw him interviewed on Beyond 100 Days, though I guess him doing interviews for the BBC news channel kind of hits home his also ran status.

    Amy Klobuchar's tyrannical reign over her staff has been one my favourite stories of the campaign so far but I never expected furiously eating a salad with a used comb to be the next turn in the tale:

    It's officially not happening.

    The world has been robbed of an entire year of Hillary dabbing, playing Fortnite with Ninja and streaming occult child sacrifices from her kitchen on Twitch.

    I think he's going to win (and he would be the best choice policy-wise) but he hasn't been the most popular politician in America for a while. Dentists Republicans hate him!

    I'll have to email Putin about updating my script, I've been using that line since 2017 :(

    It'll be interesting to see how he copes as the front-runner (there's no way Biden will last under proper scrutiny) but I'm pretty confident he's the best option for the states the Democrats need to win. He seems to be the only one who isn't wavering on Medicare for All, there's been a lot of weasel words lately.

    I missed someone off the list!

    From what I first read, I was expecting "spiritual guru and author" Marianne Williamson to summon the power of the healing crystals in her campaign but her policy positions are unexpectedly quite good. She's obviously a no-hoper but it's nice to see more people agreeing with this stuff.

    Beto is going to bring the race to life and I wouldn't be shocked if it ends up as Bernie vs him vs Kamala after the first month. Bernie's going to have a lot of hype off the early states (he's got a good chance of winning Iowa and New Hampshire), it's just a matter of whether he can carry that into the South, which really pulverised him last time.

    Medicare for All is popular in principle, but difficult to get support for in practice - it hasn't even passed in Vermont! Colorado also had a referendum on universal healthcare in 2016 which saw it rejected 80-20. Granted, things have moved on a bit since then, but really, only a bit...

    I don't think the 80-20 result in Colorado is as reflective anymore. The healthcare debate has definitely moved to the left since 2016 and even then, it was an especially poorly-written amendment that inadvertently removed access to abortion in the state.

    And Vermont is a very small place! It didn't work out there in 2014 because of the increased tax burden on local businesses. A more widely-funded system like Bernie proposes would be different, it would spread out that potential strain. That's why MFA is now supported across the divide in the state.

    Yeah, the legislation needs to be bulletproof but it's not the distant fantasy that defeatists like Klobuchar say it is. Even a right-wing libertarian think tank found that MFA would save $2trillion over 10 years. It would require a big restructuring of the economy but all of the most necessary stuff does.
