    I've grown tired of the 2016. We all know Hilary has already won. Yea team.

    So now on to the 2020 elections. Here is a sneak peak, and remember, you heard it here first.

    Our first candidate for the democrat party is 70 years old and already has grey hair. Not much is known about the new candidate other than the fact that his name is Karl and his socialist parents gave him the middle name "Marx".

    The GOP candidate is far younger but was born in India. His first name is hard to say and spell so we can just call him "Dirk" for short. Dirk was born in India 30 years ago. I know, I know, he can't be President if he was born in another country, however, the GOP had no choice because there was a short list of candidates who would lose to Karl.

    Kanye West announced that he's running for president in 2020.

    Oh, does that sound dumb? Did Donald Trump announcing his run sound dumb?

    Kanye 2020: hottest first lady ever.

    In 2020, Hillary will say, "Kanye, I'ma let you finish, but... no, no I'm not. Sit down and shut up, I'm not done yet." 😀

    Both sides have their problems in this area. The leading Democrats are too old, with too few younger one's to take their place. The leading Republicans are younger, but are backing unpopular ideas. Let's just wait until 2020. These things have a way of working themselves out.

    The 2020 election will be Hillary running for a second term versus someone like Rubio or Walker.

    If someone like Rubio or Walker seems unappealing compared to Trump now, what makes you feel like they'll have appeal in to voters in four years?

    You mean how Hillary raped the country?

    I wonder if the Clinton's will take off with all the furnishings in the White House like they did last time.

    Na, they will probably revert back to Jeb or Romney.

    I think that when Trump loses by 10 points or more, people will consider the angry outsider experiment to have been perhaps worth a try, but a failure; and will go back to an electable establishment candidate.

    I agree they will want someone more appealing to the establishment. But I think they'll want a fresh face and not someone who failed to get the 2016 nomination.

    When was the last time the Republicans nominated a "fresh face"?

    They're conservatives, they don't do "fresh".

    McConnell / Boehner ticket for the win.

    Are the people who vote in Republican primaries really going to see it that way? Considering they overwhelmingly rejected every single electable establishment candidate this cycle, I have my doubts. 4 years of Hillary are likely to make them even angrier and just as likely to insist on an outsider - maybe a Cruz-like outsider but still an outsider with limited general election appeal.

    I think the whole Trump phenomenon is deeper than just rejecting the establishment. Something about Trump's every-man anger and plain spokenness just connected with the redneck element of the party.

    A guy like Rubio could use the narrative that he was just too young this time but 4 more years of experience and he'd be ready.

    The GOP has nominated the "safe" establishment mainstream candidate every year at least since 1980. I think Trump is more the exception than the rule.
