No one wants to be the first to put their name in the hat, but it is getting to be that time in which we start seeing who is going to emerge from the left in an attempt to oust Donald Trump from the Oval Office come next election.
While no one of note has officially announced their candidacy, (Kanye West’s award show rant aside), there are a number of fairly obvious choices out there for who the left may try to prop up. Kamala Harris is a likely bet, as are Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton (again), and perhaps even Michelle Obama.
Oh, and let’s not forget about Gropey Joe Biden.
In fact, the creepy and often strange former Vice President may be the preferred candidate to go up against…at least according to Donald Trump.
When asked about the possibility of running against Biden, Trump gave the following answer in an interview with Jeff Glor:
“Well, I dream, I dream about Biden. That’s a dream. Look, Joe Biden ran three times. He never got more than 1 percent and President Obama took him out of the garbage heap, and everybody was shocked that he did. I’d love to have it be Biden. I think I’d like to have any one of those people that we’re talking about…You know, there’s probably – the group of seven or eight right now. I’d really like to – I’d like to run against any one of them, but Biden never by himself could never do anything. President Obama took him, made him vice president and he was fine. But you go back and look at how he succeeded in running, when he ran two or three times, I don’t think he ever break — broke one. He was at the one or less level, 1 percent or less level. “
To be honest, this would be a dream matchup for television ratings as well, with no shortage of possible drama in a series of debates between the boisterous President and the gaffe-prone democrat.
Pass the popcorn, y’all. This is going to be a wild ride.
