I know, I know. The upcoming election isn’t a cage match featuring two-dozen Democrats beating the hell out of Donald Trump with steel chairs, tables, hidden razors, and nails … subjecting him to vicious headlocks, suplexes, eye-gouges, chokeslams, pile-drivers, powerbombs, backbusters, diving clotheslines, somersault leg drops, rocket launchers, spinebusters, straightjacket crossfaces, stretch plums, flying lariats, crane kicks, flying and/or sliding forearm smashes, and excruciating cosmic nut punches …

But, hey, wouldn’t that be cool?

Sadly, though, we only get one nominee and one VP pick, so I’m not exactly champing at the bit for more candidates. I like a lot of our candidates already, and we’re not going to win with volume.

That said, this could be exciting.

Politico:

Stacey Abrams, the former Georgia House minority leader who lost the contentious race for governor race last year, has not ruled out the possibility of running for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

In an excerpt from a new interview for “Pod Save America,” Abrams simply replied “yes,” when asked whether she would ever consider joining the crowded pool of candidates.

Okay, so that’s not a “no.” 

Gotta say, I wouldn’t mind it if she got into the ring. She nearly won Georgia, for God’s sake. And probably would have if the referee weren’t also one of the competitors.

And her SOTU response in February was a tour de force.

Hey, maybe there’s nothing here. We’ll see. And if she is going to run she should probably decide soon. But you have to think she’d have as good a chance as anyone.

Back in March, Abrams said the soonest she could see herself back in politics was 2028, but later tweeted that “2020 is definitely on the table,” in response to the possibility of a run.

Maybe it’s still a long shot, but then again, so was the mayor of South Bend, Indiana, becoming a significant player in the primaries.
