That is a more likely scenario.

The rest is Republican wishful thinking.

Lots of wishful thinking in politics these days.

Somewhere out there, there is likely a Bernie Bro trying to figure out how Bernie could still pull this one out

Bernie is too old, but a socialist president is not an impossibility.

Lot's of things are possible. But I would still bet against in in 2020, simply because there is a Republican incumbent.

Check again in 2024, when its up for grabs for either side.

Oh god, Chelsea 2020.

Or

"Vote for the Chelsea that isn't owned by Russians"

Ok, the second may be a bit uk-centric for a usa election)

"If donors help me raise $500 million dollars for the 2020 Democratic candidate, I pledge to make no public statements or appearances during the entire campaign season."

I bet that would work pretty well.

Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one.

Isn't Chelsea a city over there and a sportsball team?

I assume that either the city of Chelsea is noted for having a large Russian presence or the Sportsball team is owned by Russians.

Yeah, Chelsea FC is owned by Roman Abramovich.

Could Democrats nominate Maxine Waters for president?
Los Angeles Daily News
California Congresswoman Maxine Waters could become the Democratic nominee for president in 2020.

Let me repeat that, so it can sink in: Maxine Waters could be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020.

Ok, let me blow into a breathalyzer, take a drug test and get psychologically evaluated before I say it a third time: Maxine Waters could be the Democratic nominee for president in 2020.

How is it possible that a radical congresswoman, who was just called “un-American” by the leadership of her own party for encouraging viral confrontations with Trump administration officials, could win the presidential nomination of a major American political party?

It’s easy. Mad Max is the only one dancing to the beat of the “Resistance,” and her album is about to go platinum.

...
I won't say I'm buying it, but as a data point it goes here. :mrgreen:

Getting serious.

I could see OC as the "surprise" vice-presidential choice of some older whiter maler party regular.

The emphasized bit means not Bernie.

Wouldn’t OC have to be at least 35, so she could ascend to the presidency if the old guy passed, or is that only when standing for election directly?

I just looked up her age. Looks like she's a little to young.
