New blood needed

I'm not trying to dump on Biden or Sanders, but in November 2020, Joe will turn 78 and Bernie will be 79. I want a presidential candidate who I can imagine serving two terms in what is an exhausting job. The Democrats are in deep shit unless they can come up with some new blood.

The resistance movement is creating a deep pool of people who are newly engaged with politics, and it has energized people who were already involved. 2020 presents a real opportunity for a new dynamic face of the Democrats to emerge and take advantage of the anti-Trump mood. Trotting out old politicians who have been popular in the past is not the way to do it.
