    I like Biden, Harris, Klobuchar, Warren, and Buttigeg. I do think that Biden is too old and Buttigeg is too young.

    I absolutely despise Sanders, Booker, and O'Rourke. Luckily, it seems like they are all dying in the polls.

    I didn't watch the debates, but heard that Trump was the big winner.:)

    Is there any truth to that?

    Those candidates are borderline inane, delusional and so out of touch with the guy who works, takes care of his family and pays taxes. Who do they think is going to pay for all this stuff. It sure as hell isn't any of them.

    It's the belief as stated by NYC Big Bird that there is plenty of money it's just in the wrong hands. So the government becomes Robin Hood taking from King John and giving to the citizens. Unfortunately the educational system of the world and the US in particular has produced people that no longer have the ability to think, so they do as they were taught and unquestioning believe.

    2020 Democratic race handicap.

    Kamala Harris: Parents divorced when she was seven. Raised in a female single parent home. No male guidance. Biased outlook on life. Skin's too thin, she's hurt by Joe Biden's actions in another era. Willie Brown said she slept her way to the top. 50-1

    Pete Buttleig: Father was an avowed Marxist academic. Admired his father and his leftist leanings. Mayor of a city in crisis. In short, young, idealistic but misguided. Gay president? Country isn't ready for it. 1000-1

    Elizabeth Warren: Harvard Law professor / Academic / Fake, believes her own bullshit, 'nuf said. 50-1

    Bernie Sanders: Socialist with a flawed theory of how wealth is created. Actually believes health insurance companies will stop funding Congressional campaigns and Medicare for all would pass. Same as ol' Joe, too old, heart attack waiting to happen. 30-1

    Cory Booker: North Jersey (UGH) professional politician, never held a real job. 'nuf said. 1000-1

    Beto O'Rourke: Suffering from visions of grandeur, record shows minimal respect for the law, geek, exhibits signs of controlled substance use. 5000-1

    Amy Klobuchar: Raised in a single female parent family. Estranged from her father for fifteen years. Flawed, biased upbringing. 50-1

    Andrew Yang: Smarter than all of the candidates put together but ideas are too far ahead of his time. Maybe after the next two elections. 500-1

    Jay Inslee: Borderline leftist/marxist/climate change crackpot. Delusional as the voters that elected him.
    Thinks throwing a bucket of tap water in the ocean will make that water drinkable. Thinks the U.S. can change the climate, while China builds 300 coal plants overeas. 500-1

    Julian Castro: Career politician. Straight from law school to an elected city councilman. Job? What's that? 1000-1

    Tulsi Gabbard: Opposed same sex marriages, now backtracking. Career politician. Confused heritage. 1000-1

    Kirsten Gillibrand: Anti-immigrant, backtracking, now wants to abolish ICE. Open borders, let the taxpayers foot the bill.
    Will say anything to get noticed. 10000-1

    Marianne Williamson: Wants 100 billion dollars for slavery reparations. Thinks the government can just print the money. Needs help, delusional. 10000-1

    John Delaney: Capitalist and one of the few that has any common sense. AOC suggested he exit the primaries.
    Doesn't have a snowball's chance in hell of being elected.
    1000-1

    John Hickenlooper: Takes credit for job increases from fracking that would have occured if Donald Duck was governor. Anti-2nd amendment, thinks criminals will obey gun laws. Doesn't mention auto accident rates increased 12.5% since pot legalized. All states where pot legalized showing higher increases in accident rates. Insurance rates going up in these states. Californiaized the state. 10000-1

    Tim Ryan: Rust belt career politician. Long on ideas, short on execution. 5000-1

    Bill deBlasio: Best argument for keeping the Electoral College. Comes from the city that elected AOC to Congress.
    Afflicted with foot-in-mouth disease.
    100000-1

    Steve Bullock: Fought corporate campaign financing, lightweight in the national arena. Will be hard pressed to raise cash. 99,999-1

    Joe Biden: Too old, campaign trail and stress will crush him like it did Hillary Clinton. If elected, will need a walker. 3-1

    All the others: Like the pari-mutuel field in a horse race, two chances, slim and none. 10000-1

    Hogpatrol- I'm uncertain what the odds are for: Are they the chances of the candidate obtaining the nomination; or winning the general election?

    Is there a line in Nevada or On-Line where I can place a bet on what the DNC ticket will be? I'd place my money on Harris for Pres, Gillibrand VicePres. The rest of the runners-up, provided they didn't burn too many bridges would be seeking Cabinet positions.
