    Biden wants Democrats to focus on winning the November midterm elections. His aides, however, are focusing on 2020:

    Perhaps the reason she has "no intention of running" is because she knows she has no chance of winning. The Democrats need to select a younger candidate who will appeal to younger voters.

    Senator Elizabeth Warren says she has no intention of running for President

    Can you imagine all the lame "Flake News" jokes that will be going around if he wins the Presidency?

    Gentlemen, start your campaigning.

    In New Hampshire, the 2020 presidential race is already well underway
    NBC News, Apr 07 2018 6:52 AM

    Potential candidates are shaking hands and taking questions from prospective voters, introductions and discussions are going on behind the scenes and Saint Anselm College’s "Politics & Eggs" conversation series has resumed. The political world might still be recovering from the 2016 presidential election and focusing now on the midterm fights for Congress, but here in the nation's first primary state the battle for 2020 is already well underway.

    On Tuesday, two potential presidential contenders, Republican Governor John Kasich of Ohio and former Democratic Governor Martin O’Malley of Maryland, swung through the state, bringing with them a barrage of national media ready to report on possible challengers to a controversial incumbent president consistently struggling with scandal and approval ratings. Their trips followed recent visits from others — Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake and Democrats including Julian Castro, Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley and Representatives. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts and Tim Ryan from Ohio.

    With such a wide-open field on the Democratic side and the potential for a primary of a sitting president on the Republican side, many feel things are buzzing earlier than ever. "Here in New Hampshire, the 2020 cycle has already begun," said Wayne Lesperance, the Dean of Undergraduate Programs and political science professor at New England College, in between events with O’Malley and Kasich. Activity is increasing so quickly "because of the absolute craziness that's going on in D.C." said state Democratic Senator Lou D'Allesandro. "As a result, things will perk earlier."

    Poll: Older, educated white voters shift away from Trump's Republican party
    Reuters, Apr 9 2018 9:11 AM

    Older, white, educated voters helped Donald Trump win the White House in 2016. Now, they are trending toward Democrats in such numbers that their ballots could tip the scales in tight congressional races from New Jersey to California, a new Reuters/Ipsos poll and a data analysis of competitive districts show.

    Nationwide, whites over the age of 60 with college degrees now favor Democrats over Republicans for Congress by a 2-point margin, according to Reuters/Ipsos opinion polling during the first three months of the year. During the same period in 2016, that same group favored Republicans for Congress by 10 percentage points. The 12-point swing is one of the largest shifts in support toward Democrats that the Reuters/Ipsos poll has measured over the past two years. If that trend continues, Republicans will struggle to keep control of the House of Representatives, and possibly the Senate, in the November elections, potentially dooming President Donald Trump's legislative agenda.

    Yes, the idea of a Kardashian running for office seems highly unlikely -- until you remember Ronald Reagan, George Murphy, Jesse Ventura, Clint Eastwood, Fred Grandy, Fred Thompson, Sonny Bono, Al Franken, Sheila Kuehl, Jerry Springer, Donald Trump and Arnold Schwarzenegger

    Kim Kardashian won’t rule out running for president

    Here is the Washington Post's latest quarterly ranking of possible Democratic Presidential contenders. I would love to see a ranking based on each person's appeal to voters under the age of 30. The party needs to nominate a younger and more personable candidate à la John Kennedy and Bill Clinton.

    Five familiar Democrats -- perhaps too familiar -- are hoping Democrats can regain control of Congress. They're campaigning and fundraising for candidates in this year's midterm elections and each of them is considering running for President in 2020. Biden and Sanders probably have the best chances.....but Biden is 75 and Sanders is 76. Would younger voters vote for them? And when I ask questions, it is permissible for other Sirius Buzz members to respond. What do I have to do to get people to participate in these discussions?

    Warren is preparing for 2020. So are Biden, Booker, Harris and Sanders.

    Polls show Biden would beat Trump. If Biden runs for President and wins, he would be 78 when he takes office. Would his age keep younger voters from voting for him?

    Joe Biden says he will decide by January whether he's running for President
