I’d love to see Vice President Biden make a run, but his age (he’ll be 74 on Inauguration Day, 2017) is a major handicap.
There’s also New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper, and Senator Mark Warren of Virginia. You never know if we’ll see a comeback attempt by Al Gore or our current Secretary of State John Kerry. I don’t think Kerry would have a shot, but Gore is always a potential heavyweight. Here’s a sleeper for you: California Attorney General (and one of my favorite politicians) Kamala Harris.
I think Governor O’Malley, Senator Warner, and Kamala would be awesome Democratic candidates if they got a national shot. Kamala would be a fantastic VP candidate.
