No. It will be better is she's married to a lawyer.

I think they will try to present her as an improved version of Obama, and if the Republicans run Trump, she will win.

They'll try to get one of the Castro brothers to run.  After all, they're Hispanic.

I sure hope it's not Fidel. 

He died nearly 2 years ago!

If the economy is doing well, Trump will win.  Dems know this which is why Bill Maher is fantasizing about the economy crashing.

I mean the Castro brother from Texas, they're Dems.  They were like rock stars at the Democratic National Convention.  One of them is considering running for president in 2020.

http://www.startribune.com/julian-castro-seizes-on-border-separation-while-musin...

Quote:
FORT WORTH, Texas — Former U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro is seizing on the outcry over family separation at the border as he explores a 2020 presidential run, telling delegates at a Texas Democratic Party convention in Fort Worth Friday that the issue underscores "in poignant terms what the stakes are."


He was the Housing and Urban Development Secretary under Obama.  I think I'll stick with Trump.

What Julian Castro says about 2020 and turning Texas blue
https://www.cnn.com/2018/02/08/politics/julian-castro-2020-texas/index.html

Texas, a blue state?!  If only the illegals could vote.  Being from Texas works against the Castro brothers because the state is red.  I don't think it's even close to being purple.  Like Hillary, maybe they should move to New York.

They're not relying on illegals voting.  If dems can energize their base, along with some complacency in the GOP,  it could happen.  Look at the voter turnout disparities of 2014 and 2018:

(apologies for the gigantic image - I dont know how to reduce it on this YaBB platform)

The last Dem to win Texas was Jimmy Carter.  I'm not saying it can't happen in the near future, but it's highly unlikely.

You think an economic crash is a fantasy Ruby? Serious economist know it's a certainty, they just can't predict when it will happen.

Nothing looks encouraging for preventing an economic downturn before the elections, and the Fed is still out of ammo.

Trump will lose in a landslide.
