I'm a Bernie/Tulsi guy, but O'Rourke seems to have a lot of momentum right now. While I do like that he has refused PAC money, he's a little vanilla for my taste. What do you guys think?

I know someone who was working with his campaign at the very beginning. She says he's sincere, which doesn't mean he's without flaws, just that he means and does what he says. If he runs, I'm voting for him.

As someone who has never voted for a Democrat for POTUS in my life, I haven't had any input into who they have chosen to run for the office on that side since I started voting in 1972. However, it is an option for me in 2020 so I will be paying a bit more attention to their primaries. In the early going there haven't been any that I have been able to say that I hope they run, but from among the possibilities that I know of, there are two that are emerging as "favorites" (if I can use the term loosely).

It may be because of temperament, but I have developed a respect for Sen. Kristen Gillibrand. The other might be surprising, but I find myself truly liking Sen. Kamala Harris, warts and all. There is no doubt that I have philosophical differences with each of them and that will be true of any Democrat that wins the nomination. But if the election were held today and Trump is the Republican nominee, I would have no trouble casting my ballot for a Democrat for the first time, especially if it were one of these two women. Obviously, that could change over time as I learn more about them, but those two would probably be my frontrunners.

I honestly didn't get the hype on him. Struck me as super bland and unengaging in everything I saw of him. Can't see the identity politics wing of the Democratic party being happy with a white guy, either. But who knows.

I really don't believe they like him any better than dozens of other, more accomplished possibilities. Not that he and Trump are anything alike, but I believe Beto's popularity is just a part of the cult of personality that has provided us with the current occupant of the White House.

Possibly, but charisma matters. We're living in the times that prove it.

Knowing Harris better from being attorney general here in California I seriously hope she runs. More of a centralist Democrat in many ways.
I don't see her so much as centrist as I see her as a law and order Democrat. That has some appeal. I heard a speech she gave in a San Francisco church that was pretty impressive. She was speaking to some of the people who know her best, so she seemed more comfortable and less someone who was playing to the cameras. I like that Harris.

I still think she would have a tough time in a national race. During the primaries, some of her negatives would be exposed, but I believe she could overcome those. It's pretty hard to live a squeaky clean life on the off chance that you could run for president one day. I much prefer her to most of the contenders on the Democrat side that I am familiar with. As I said, that could change before 2020.
