    Admiral William McRaven retired from the Navy in 2014 after a 37-year career. From 2001 to 2014, he oversaw counter-terrorism espionage and operations. Many Americans are now looking ahead to 2020 and dreaming of a Biden-McRaven ticket or a Sanders-McRaven ticket.

    After his op-ed slamming Trump, the Navy SEAL who oversaw the raid that killed Osama bin Laden is being eyed as a political contender for 2020

    Presidential elections should be decided by popular vote, same as elections for senators, representatives, mayors, governors, assessors, city councils, school boards and other offices. They aren't, though. The Electoral College can lead to winners losing and losers winning. Choosing a Presidential nominee should also be decided by popular vote -- and today the Democrats took a big step toward making that so.

    Democrats dilute the power of superdelegates in historic party vote
    Los Angeles Times, Aug 25 2018 1:25 PM

    In a move aimed at getting past the acrimony from the 2016 presidential primary and unifying the party, the Democratic National Committee voted today at a party meeting in Chicago to dramatically reduce the role of superdelegates in choosing its presidential nominee. The new rules strip them of their votes during the first ballot during the party’s convention, when the presidential nominee is typically confirmed. It is a historic change, upending a process that has been in place for decades. The superdelegates would, however, retain voting rights in subsequent rounds, leaving them to play a role in picking the nominee in the event of a contested convention. The vote was a victory for the left wing of the party, which demanded a more democratic nominating process.

    I think this makes 200 people who have said they might run for President -- and still no one who has said he definitely will run.

    New Hampshire is considering choosing a Republican -- likely John Kasich, Jeff Flake or Ben Sasse -- to take on Trump in the 2020 primary. Other states may do likewise. Many Republicans are finally growing weary of the Trump White House and all the chaos, firings, resignations, lies, nasty tweets, legal problems, scandals, trade wars, feuds with world leaders, attacks on the news media, attacks on political opponents, attacks on freedom of speech.......need I go on?

    Another problem for Trump: A 2020 primary challenge is growing more likely

    Democrats need to choose a presidential candidate who will appeal to blacks, hispanics, women and younger voters and who has a strong chance of winning. Perhaps Joe Biden. Or Bernie Sanders. Or Cory Booker. Or Sherrod Brown. Or Andrew Cuomo. Or Kirsten Gillibrand. Or Eric Holder. Or Terry McAuliffe. Or Martin O'Malley. Elizabeth Warren would be a poor choice. Somebody should tell her that.

    Elizabeth Warren builds expansive Democratic campaign effort ahead of likely 2020 presidential bid

    Castro -- no, he's not related to those Castros -- was Secretary of Housing & Urban Development from 2014 to 2017. His mother Rosie was a chairwoman of the La Raza Unida political party which works for the election of Latino candidates.

    Julian Castro talks about 'likely' run against Trump and where Clinton went wrong in 2016
