    The Democratic National Committee will hold six candidate debates in 2019 and six in 2020. A record number of Democrats could be running for President and CNN's Chris Cillizza objects to the "vague" and "random" process that will determine who takes part in the debates.....and when.....and why.

    The one big problem Democrats didn't solve with their 2020 debate schedule

    Here is a US News & World Report ranking of possible Democratic Presidential candidates and their chances of winning. Biden, Booker, Harris, O'Rourke and Sanders top the list -- and then there are the relatively unknown Tulsi Gabbard, Richard Ojeda, Eric Swalwell and Pete Buttigieg. Would anybody really want a President named Buttigieg?

    Potential Democratic Presidential candidates need to hurry up and make up their minds. To quote comic-strip character Snuffy Smith, "Time's a-wastin'!"

    Trump's vulnerable in 2020 but Democrats are off to a surprisingly slow start in early states
    NBC News, Dec 26 2018 1:32 AM

    In Iowa and New Hampshire, the phone calls from likely 2020 Democratic Presidential contenders are coming in fast. Heavyweights such as California Senator Kamala Harris, New Jersey Senator Cory Booker and Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren looking for office space, staff and support from local leaders while lesser-known hopefuls are eyeing visits to boost their visibility in the key early contest states.

    But with 2019 just days away, the looming contests in Iowa and New Hampshire, both set for February 2020, have also been oddly static. Even as more than two dozen Democrats are considering a run for their party's nomination, no major candidate has signaled definite plans to jump in, die-hard activists have been slow to commit to any potential contenders and donors are keeping their checkbooks closed — for now.

    Complicating matters further, the "three B's" who have topped several early polls — former Vice President Joe Biden, Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders and Texas Rep. Beto O'Rourke — have been all but absent from both states so far. Activists in both states expect things to ramp up in January, when several likely contenders will announce they're forming exploratory committees or declare flat out that they are running.

    Still, given the large field expected, local Democratic organizers say they've been surprised by the relatively slow start in the two states where Presidential politics can be a full-time endeavor. Many activists in both states are awaiting an indication from Biden, Sanders and O'Rourke before committing to a candidate.

    Booker, Harris, Gillibrand.......and Elizabeth Warren??? Does she honestly think anyone besides Massachusetts Democrats and her family members would vote for her?

    Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren just held a press conference and declared, "I'm in this fight all the way." Be afraid. Be very afraid.

    NBC News political reporter Benjy Sarlin says Warren will face "significant obstacles" but he predicts that if Warren does not win the 2020 Democratic nomination, the nominee will be someone who sounds "a lot like her."

    Warren's message on corruption and corporations could reshape the 2020 Democratic primary
    Analysis: The Massachusetts Democrat's focus on reining in big business and cleaning up government could put rivals on the spot if they aren't careful.

    Mitt Romney, the incoming Senator from Utah, wrote a scathing essay that appeared yesterday in the Washington Post. He denounced President Trump for not rising "to the mantle of the office" and for words and actions that are "divisive, racist, sexist, anti-immigrant, dishonest or destructive to democratic institutions." Romney has not decided whether to support Trump in 2020 -- but Romney did decide that he won't run for President.

    As we wait to learn who besides Elizabeth Warren will run for President in 2020, here is another person who won't:

    Former Maryland Governor Martin O'Malley says he's not running in 2020, endorses Beto O'Rourke

    Joe Biden, who still has not announced whether he'll run for President, apparently thinks he would have a better chance of winning than any of the other potential contenders. New York Governor Andrew Cuomo agrees. Four days ago he said Democrats need to focus on being positive, not negative, and said Biden has "the most of the secret ingredient a Democrat needs: credibility."

    Biden sees himself as Democrats' best hope in 2020, allies say
