    What the hell is going on? Is it some kind of contagious disease?

    My opinion. It's obvious now, more than ever, that the old saying is true: "Anyone can grow up to be president." .The country is pretty much running itself right now. The less interference by the president, the better things seem to run. Who wouldn't give it a try with the bar set that low?

    With almost everyone in the Democratic Party now running for President, it looks a bit like the Republicans did last time. Perhaps the most unusual candidate will emerge at the end, as happened with the Republicans.

    I think of the millions that are spent on elections.

    Really wish we had a process that isn't so wasteful.

    All parties will toss multiple names into the race.

    It used to be that they would choose their cream of the crop.

    These days there isn't such a thing and I think it's hilarious that the Dems are so broken and disjointed that they can't find 1 viable candidate .. so why not throw all the names into the race.

    I'm pretty sure they think there is safety in numbers. They are putting them all out there and hoping there will be one rotten apple that is not as rotten as the rest of them.

    Let them all show how messed up they are .. every one of them have now given permission for all of their faults, secrets and lies to be put on exhibition to the public.

    Honestly .. I kind of prefer this point more than when it's down to the finals .. there is such craziness and a ton of memorable moments when they are all sparring.

    Moron madness .. let's go !

    Just as an aside: Being a politician let alone president is not exactly an attractive job, is it? Are you sure, Lon, "everyone" is or should be running? Don't you need a mint of money for that? And be a good public speaker? I couldn't say a sentence nor am I American-born but I wouldn't run in my country either. All work and no joy makes me a dull boy. And not to forget, what is running for potus to being elected potus?

    While I hope that the Democrats are as disorganized as they appear, I don't think that's the case. I think they are encouraging a multitude of far left wackadoodles to declare for office so that the ordinary wackadoodle who they really want to run will appear sensible by comparison.
