    An editorial in today's Montpelier Times-Argus urges Bernie Sanders to not run for President. If he runs, he would split the Democratic vote as he did in 2016. If he doesn't run, the Democratic nominee will have a "clear mandate." Maybe Bernie has learned something from the last election and from the 1992 and 1996 candidacies of vote-splitter Henry Ross Perot.

    "I won't run for California Governor in 2016." "I won't run for Senate in 2018." "I won't run for President in 2020." I wonder what office Tom Steyer will say he won't be running for in 2022.

    Billionaire Tom Steyer rules out 2020 Presidential run but pledges to redouble effort to oust Trump

    Gabbard, a Democrat and an Iraq War veteran, won nearly 81% of the vote in the 2012 election for Representative of the 2nd Congressional District of Hawai'i. She was re-elected by similar margins in 2014, 2016 and 2018. Now she's running for President. Her campaign manager worked for Bernie Sanders in 2016.

    This is one of those "Duh!" headlines. Has any candidate ever declared, "I'm looking toward our party's past"?

    Former HUD Secretary Julián Castro appeared today on CBS-TV's Face The Nation and shared his plans for immigration reform, better border security and "Medicare for all." Castro said he knows he's not "in the pole position" as a candidate right now. The CBS story says "poll position," which is a misspelling.....but it gives a different -- and still accurate -- meaning to Castro's comment.

    Kirsten Gillibrand has been a New York Senator since January 26, 2009, when she was appointed to fill the vacancy left by Hillary Clinton, who became President Obama's Secretary of State. Gillibrand said if she was re-elected in 2018 she would serve her full six-year term. She was -- and now she might not.

    In a poll released today, 90% of Republicans plan to vote for Trump in 2020. (I would ask them: Why???) Of all registered voters, 30% say they will definitely vote for Trump in 2020 and 57% say they definitely will not. Will Trump run for re-election if he thinks he would lose? His enormous ego might keep him from running so he wouldn't be branded a "loser" -- but, then again, his enormous ego may keep him from acknowledging even the slightest possibility of losing.

    Senator Kamala Harris served as San Francisco District Attorney from 2004 to 2010 and California Attorney General from 2011 to 2017. Today she announced she's running for President and her rivals are already planning to assail her for her zealousness as a prosecutor. Ladies and gentlemen of the Democratic party, start your infighting!

    Her "zealousness" was very selective - and there is much more to know about her.

    CNN just released its seventh monthly "power ranking" of the ten Democrats most likely to run for President in 2020. Kamala Harris tops the list and is followed by Beto O'Rourke, Joe Biden.......and Elizabeth Warren?
