The governor of Massachusetts should switch parties and become a Democrat and then run for president. He Acts more like a liberal than a conservative and I think He would have an excellent shot at winning.

If I was going to lay bets based on where things stand now, I'd put most of my money on Kamala Harris in either the President or Vice President slot. She'll be at the same point in her Senate term in 2020 that Obama was at in 2008.

She is loved by the Democratic base and is actually somewhat attractive and charasmatic. As a long serving big time DA and Attorney General, she's pretty tough and quick witted and I don't think she comes off as shrill.

I'd like to see Sherrod Brown on the ticket, because I like him and he would shore up the rust belt states. Brown/Harris could be the Democrats' most formidable ticket.

Given how riled up they are about Trump, I don't think the Democratic primary voters are going to pick a converted Republican health care CEO in 2020. But, if Trumpism is badly tarnished, he could have a national future. His problem is that the Republican base might never go back to Gerald Ford mode.

I'm a huge fan of Kamala. She is so intelligent and can't be intimidated.

The problem: After the white storm that's been percolating with this administration and its base, I don't think a black female can win. I just don't think it would be the right time for her.

I love Warren as my state senator, but she would be an absolute deterrent to most of this country, so I'm a no on her.

I like Gavin Newsom. He's not going to run, though. I'm also a fan of Seth Moulton, but that's not happening, either.

I like Gavin Newsom, but he won't be sworn in as Governor until 2019 and would need to start campaigning almost immediately. Kamala Harris would be the starkest possible contrast to Trump and the racist/anti-racist pendulum cuts both ways. I think Obama benefitted from it. In becoming President, it could be that sexism is a bigger hurdle. People always comment on how female candidates sound "shrill". I'm not sure if there's any comparable word that would be used about a man.

It seems like Sherrod Brown at the top of the ticket could boost the Democrats in the upper midwest states that Trump carried and then Harris at VP would maximize minority turnout. At this point, that ticket would seem tough to beat.

My main fear would be that someone like Kasich or Jeff Flake runs as an independent and could allow Trump to get re-elected with 38% or something. I think that would be a big danger if the nominee was someone like Elizabeth Warren, who the right has pre-demonized, like they did with Hillary.

ALL Massachusetts republicans are RINOS.

This is Massachusetts.

There hasn't been a real republican in Massachusetts since Curtis Guild.

Charlie is a good Governor and a pretty decent guy.

I'll keep voting for him.

Can someone perhaps make me a list of "real" Republicans by the way.

I mean how does one make the cut?

It sure as hell isn't about small government or getting the Government out of our lives.

Low taxes and High deficits, well yeah sure, but not limited government.

Here is a link to his website where he lays out dozens of policy positions and initiatives he wants to implement.

So far, of all the names floated around, he's the only one I'd actually be excited to vote FOR instead of simply voting against the current dumpster fire.
Who is his Yin?
