2020 Presidential Candidates

I think you will see this change as the campaign goes along. Traveling really wears you out, and the older you are, the more it beats down on you. As Joe and possibly Bernie make more mistakes and gaffes, I think you will see some of their support slip to younger candidates. Warren is especially setting herself up as the female Sanders. And there are a few younger moderate Dem candidates waiting to take up the Biden mantle. Maybe even Bennet.

Ironically, the democrats leading the race are white men in their eighth decade of life. Perhaps the V-P slot will be eagerly sought.
On another note, it looks like Bennet will outlast Hickenlooper as a candidate. I thought it would be the other way around. We shall see in September.

Seems silly to give up so soon. The Iowa caucus isn't until early 2020, a lot can happen in the remaining months of 2019. If Iowa turns out to be a disaster, he would probably still have time to enter the Colorado Senate race. Which brings up this point, if being a senator is so cool. why do first time senators run for President? Kamala, Barack, Hillary? Maybe it sucks as a job. One of 100 people.
