What's to talk about?

DeBozio will syphon funds from hither and yon, amassing a war chest larger than anything which has been seen before.

Oh, I know, you're gonna tell me that won't happen. To that, I say, ha!

Now on to the cast of characters.

Bo Dietl- I don't think so. For one, he used to be a Republican, changed parties for this run.. Of course he most likely won't be in the primary since, he checked off 2 boxes, Independent and Democrat. The judged said he can't run as a Dem.
Then again, in an appeal another judge might rule in his favor.

Quinn is at the top of a worthwhile organization, hoping she stays there.

Letitia James is one I'd like to see take the reigns. The down side is that she would then be leaving as Public Advocate after just one term. Much better she stay put until the next cycle.

Preet has said he has no political ambitions. I'd like him to run, but of course, he will first have to gain New York City residency. He lives in one of the counties to the north if I recall rightly.

Several from the City Council might opt to run as their second term is up this year. (Unless there's another Bloomberg type move to get a third term.

Among them, James 'Jimmy' VanBramer, Ydanis Rodriguez on the Democratic side and Stephen Matteo for the Republicans.

Call it wishful thinking. Call it, bitterness towards the establishment Democrats but the shine has worn off alleged progressives like Debuttheadsio.

Yeah. I get that kicking this incumbent ass will not be very likely.

Plus, it would be interesting to see Trump Jr enter the race, if not for the flaring media spectacle of it all.

Unless there's another Bloomberg type move to get a third term.

There'd be open revolt if anyone tries that.

Also, imagine Anthony Wiener trying for an unimaginable *(lost track)*th chance to get back in politics?

For people who find politics a great spectator sport, I really don't understand why my recent threads are getting barely no reactions or posts.

AKA there's a lot to talk about. Did anyone actually look at the list of candidates? Most don't have a chance to even hit the eventual primary but come on?! It will be a fun election season. Laughing

Pardon me. I know you know a2k well, but sometimes one can flub up, at the least by not clicking on Send. I know you know that too.

De Blasio Is Definitely Not Running For President In 2020, Maybe
