If a person doesn’t light a fire of excitement when they speak, you can bet their chances of winning will be about as close to zero as you can get. These are the candidates in the category of the stiff stuffy boring no charisma-having candidates that won’t win the nomination in 2020.
Julian Castro, Hillary Clinton, Eric Garcetti, John Hickenlooper, John Delaney, Eric Holder, Seth Moulton, Jay Inslee, John Kerry, Terry McAuliffe, Jeff Merkley, Martin O’Malley, Tim Ryan, Howard Schultz, Eric Swalwell, Steve Bullock, Amy Klobuchar
I know what you might be thinking, “but Hillary Clinton got the nomination last time”. Yeah, but did she win the election? No. Politics is a cold as ice business that has no love for the too mild-mannered participants.
And unfortunately for those people listed above, there’s going to be a few more political rock stars running this time around. They would have had a better shot in 2016 like Bernie did, but Hillary won because Dems fell too much in love with the idea of “making history” again.
If the Dems wanna win in 2020, they better nominate one of their best political rock stars, or Trump will be making them miserable for 4 more years.
