seem to be men, according to what I've been reading. Curious to know what prospective candidates posters prefer in the party of their choice. I'm not starting a debate or spoiling for a fight, just wondering if the country will ever elect a woman. I like Biden but am not sure how long we would have him. (He's getting up there, but who am I to talk.) My preferences would be Elizabeth Warren with Kamila Harris as her running mate. Anyone willing to comment?

I agree with you on Biden with regards to his age, though I think he would be a good president. Warren, like Bernie, may be too liberal to be electable nationwide. It will be interesting to see what candidates emerge for the Dems as we move towards 2020. It may be that someone from the Senate comes forward. Maybe Mark Warner? Woman? Maybe Tulsi Gabbard, but she may be too liberal. Just my thoughts.

And thanks for sharing them. I agree with your comments but am not familiar with the woman you mentioned.

Something strange just happened--My computer shut down automatically and when it returned to service, your post had disappeared, which is why I couldn't name the woman in your last sentence. Hmm, a beautiful cloudless, wind-free Kansas day yet it was like a lightning bolt disrupting the whole works. My son says I am cursed when it comes to modern day technology. I don't argue the point.

Read up on Tulsi Gabbard and was very impressed! I admire those who question long-held beliefs. I believe it shows character.

(In my best Pythonesque voice) Are you a witch?

Explanation: in the universe of Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files, the magical fields that comprise the life force of wizards and witches wreak havoc with most technology. LT Karrin Murphy (head of the Special Investigations Division of the Chicago PD) always turns off all her tech before allowing police consultant Harry Dresden (the only working wizard and licensed private detective advertised in the Chicago Yellow Pages) into her office.

To the more mundane but serious -- Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) is one very impressive person. Listened to her in an interview today, read up on her afterwards, and she has shot to the top of my list of the Democratic women -- and maybe the top of the Democrats, period -- should she declare. Still no official announcement yet. Born in Oakland, CA, Tamil Indian mom (breast cancer scientist) and Jamaican dad (economics professor at Stanford). Professional career before election to the Senate -- Deputy DA, Alameda County, CA; DA City and County of San Francisco; CA state AG.

I wouldn't be surprised to see Harris and Warren in the final debate. Of course, that could just be wishful thinking, and we do have a plethora (I've been waiting for a chance to use that word) of other worthy candidates.

As to being a witch, being a substitute teacher is certainly a qualification!
