    I'd like David Clarke to run in the Democratic primaries. He is, in fact, a registered Democrat

    Pete may be more Centrist than I like, but I hope he gives more Policy specifics down the road. We need a concrete idea of where he wants to take us.

    The thing is, Mayor Pete has specifically said he wants the left to be less policy-driven and more 'philisophical', which is a polite way of indicating that you're not going to do much of anything.

    Nobody likes gentrification, but it is hard to think of a viable alternative to it that doesn't involve letting neighborhoods rot in misery perpetually. Investing in any area will inevitably attract outsiders that will drive up prices and compete with the locals for the new job opportunities. While it might be attractive to think of a scenario where resources continue to flow into a neighborhood to benefit the existing residents while barriers are put up to keep out newcomers, how exactly would you pull this off?

    Maybe John Edwards should run for office to redeem his failures

    On a more serious note, but in a similar direction: How old is Gary Hart? 82? Wouldn't even be the oldest guy in the field.

    Oh yes. Just so she could call Trump "Cadet Bone Spurs" right to his face.

    As always, I'd love to see Willie Nelson in office. He's a few years shy of 90, but he's had more than enough real world experience to give him a view of America that most politicians lack. His activism is well documented, and if anyone could peel away some of those good ol boys from the GoP and get them to see the light he'd be the one to do it.

    Was rather disappointed she hadn't declared interest in running. I wonder if she would be open to being VP.

    I think the way Philly is doing it and NC in some parts is letting the Owners revitalize their areas as part of a push to make the Neighborhoods look better. New York is doing a HORRIBLE Job, as is Delaware, but NJ has been okay about it, except in areas like Camden. So we'll see how Buttigieg is going to handle this issue if he makes it past the debates.

    I'm no fan of Corey Booker, but he did help halt a lot of the Gentrification of NJ, under that Guy who shall not be named.

    I think both of them brought/bring their own positives to the table.
    As for me, I support most politicians in general, and it is only really during elections where I choose sides. I definitely consider myself a moderate/independent.
