    Biden will be 80 and would give her just over a year including the full campaign which is just short enough to not become massively unpopular.

    Yes a president can serve for a maximum of 10 years if circumstances allow.

    If she takes over after January 20th 2023, yes.

    Surprisingly, she's not the early favourite in 2024 polling - Andrew Cuomo and Pete Buttigieg are.

    (I imagine she'll very easily be the favourite by 2024 though)

    I love how everyone’s just assuming Biden won’t finish his term :D

    I can see a blind black Arab woman with three broken marriages, four illegitimate children and a penchant for zoophilia getting in before America elects a HOMO

    HARDLY. America's embraced the gays FAR quicker than most else. I could see Pete Buttigieg winning an election if he ever became the nominee.

    Honestly I think they'd be more chill with a WHITE GAY than most things.

    At the very least they'd have the white woman vote that time at least.

    I really dislike Pete and his boring pasty almost conservative politics.

    Pete is a dangerous idiot who thinks young men not having served in the military should be considered a social stigma. He'll probably be in the Republican party by 2030. I'll take literally any other gay before him

    Honestly, I can't wait for gays to all universally hate the first gay president :disco:

    And that CHASTEN is a fucking DISNEY GAY AND ALL. WORST FIRST LADY EVER!

    well they embraced black people 60 years ago and yet here we are, having to hold marches because police won’t stop killing them for owning a nice car

    embracing and electing are not really in the same league here

    :D! at the idea the Civil Rights Act (which had a majority opposed to it at the time and basically forced most of the South to show its homework to the federal government to prove it wasn't oppressing African Americans) was America EMBRACING black people!

    You've got easy solid 60% region majorities in favour of gay marriage now, and close to 70-80% supermajorities of Americans saying they're fine with gays. We already know a black man can be elected president and the electoral coalition feels there for a white gay man to be elected (put it this way - if Pete Buttigieg were the nominee now, I imagine Trump would still be on track to lose in a landslide). But I'd say it's almost certainly safer to be a white gay man in America now than it is to be a black man, and I wouldn't have necessarily said that 15 years ago.

    One of my good friends here is a political journalist and he told me that a couple of years ago Lindsay Graham was threatened to be exposed by his former EYEBROW BEAUTICIAN :D

    According to CNN no challenger has been this far ahead since 1936 when polling began. To boot no challenger has ever been polling over 50% at this stage.

    It looks more and more promising every single day.

    I read an article about The Blue Shift phenomenon and now I’m convinced that 2020 will end with civil war in the US. :)

    Didn’t that lovely blind psychic who predicted 9/11 also say that Trump would be the last ever President of the US?

    Shame she didn’t predict her own death and leave behind some HANDY TIPS.

    Actually I just read about her last predictions for the Earth and it sounded like some crazy Nazi fan fiction. Piss off Baba!
