This is from ABC News. They are absolutely titillated about the line up here. I confess, I made some slight edits to their written qualifications about each candidate.

Following Democrats’ sweeping victories in the House of Representatives during the 2018 midterm elections, many in the party are eagerly anticipating the 2020 presidential election and the opportunity to unseat President Donald Trump.

A large number of candidates have already declared that they are running and have set off on campaign trips to Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, but the field continues to grow, with new campaigns launching nearly by the week.

Here’s a list of the candidates who are in the race:

Sen. Cory Booker

 Sen. Cory Booker, D-NJ., speaks during the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, July 25, 2016.


 Booker has thus far campaigned on a message that is simple: I will wage war on the pond scum whites that have held my people back all these years. I will get reparations for our slavery punishments. Why should Native Americans get the casinos and we get zilch. I promise this will be big. Every brother and sister will get a check for $1,000,000. How’s that?

South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg

 Mayor Pete Buttigieg talks with an AP reporter at his office in South Bend, Ind., Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019.

Buttigieg first made a national name for himself with a bid for Democratic National Committee chair in 2017 and, at 37 years old, is the youngest entrant into the 2020 race. He could also become the first gay man to be elected president.

I haven’t done jack shit in my life, but I’m gay. American must elect a gay President and I’m the guy.

Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julian Castro

 Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Castro addresses the Texas Democratic convention, June 17, 2016, in San Antonio.

Castro, who served as mayor of San Antonio, Texas before spending over two years in President Barack Obama’s cabinet, announced his campaign in his hometown in January.

The hell with gay and female, it’s time for a Hispanic President. The country elected Obama just because he was black, step it up and do the same for me.

Former Rep. John Delaney

 Rep. John Delaney, D-Md., walks by the Capitol, Oct. 2, 2017.

The Maryland congressman was only seven months into his third term when he announced his candidacy in July 2017, becoming the first member of Congress to launch a bid in the 2020 cycle.

While Delaney, a millionaire entrepreneur and businessman before arriving in Congress, does not have the name recognition of the other likely candidates, he has already traveled to all of Iowa’s 99 counties –- a right of passage for many caucus hopefuls — and frequently discusses his pragmatic approach and desire to bridge political gaps.

You don’t have a clue who I am but anyone who would travel to all 99 counties in Iowa deserves to be President.

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard

 Representative Tulsi Gabbard speaks during Day 2 of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, July 26, 2016.

Democrat and Iraq War veteran Gabbard first announced her presidential bid in January in an appearance on CNN

Look at me and then look at Hillary and the other women who have run. I’m hot. That’s all you need to know. I can get the dumb assed Republican men to vote for me.

Early on in her campaign, the first American Samoan and the first Hindu member of Congress faced questions over her work in the early 2000’s for an anti-gay organization run by her father, and her defense of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, with whom she controversially met in 2017.

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand

 Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, speaks to supporters during an election night watch party hosted by the New York State Democratic Committee, Nov. 6, 2018, in New York, after being re-elected.

The New York Democrat formally announced her presidential run on March 17 in a video posted to her verified YouTube account. In January, she had announced that she was forming a presidential exploratory committee during an appearance on CBS’ “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.”

I throw the F word into my campaign speeches. Scary, right? I’m from NY and I’m tougher than buzzard scat.


Sen. Kamala Harris

 Sen. Kamala Harris listens as Christine Blasey Ford testifies before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill in Washington, Sept. 27, 2018.

Following months of speculation surrounding the California junior senator, Harris officially announced her 2020 candidacy on ABC’s “Good Morning America” in January.

I did old Willie Brown for years to get here. Anyone who will  do old  Willie to get ahead will do anything for America.

Former Gov. John Hickenlooper

 Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, left, applauds at a campaign house party, Feb. 13, 2019, in Manchester, N.H. Hickenlooper is contemplating a run for the Democratic presidential candidacy.

Hickenlooper joined the field in early March, seeking to parlay his success in growing Colorado’s economy while passing environmental regulations and gun control laws into a successful presidential campaign. In a launch video, he spoke further of healing the nation’s political divisions.

“I’m running for president because we need dreamers in Washington, but we also need to get things done,” he says. “I’ve proven again and again I can bring people together to produce the progressive change Washington has failed to deliver.” I wasn’t so much a dreamer before I started smoking pot every day. They I legalized it for my state. I will do that for your state too. Need more?


Gov. Jay Inslee

 Washington Governor Jay Inslee answers questions from reporters after speaking at a campaign event in Seattle, March 1, 2019.

Inslee became the first sitting governor to join the presidential field when he kicked-off his campaign in early March.

The Washington governor is an example of brain mildew. If you live somewhere with rain 300 days a year, it gets things a little soggy.

“We went to the moon, and created technologies that have changed the world,” Inslee said in his announcement video. “Our country’s next mission must be to rise up to the most urgent challenge of our time: defeating climate change.” I promise you will like $10.00 gasoline.

Sen. Amy Klobuchar

 Sen. Amy Klobuchar greets the crowd before announcing her bid for president at Boom Island Park in Minneapolis, Feb. 10, 2019.

Hi, I’m Amy from Minnesota, the state that gave the nation Ilhan Omar, Al Franken, and Jesse Ventura. President Obama imported hundreds of Somalis to this state. We are fast becoming a new Nation of Islam. Every person in my staff hates my ass. America will too. I’m nasty.

Miramar, Florida Mayor Wayne Messam

The little-known Florida mayor joined the growing list of 2020 presidential candidates, announcing his candidacy on March 28 despite facing an uphill climb for his bid.

ABC didn’t have my picture. I don’t have a chance but I saw how Bernie got a lake cottage with unused campaign funds and I need one.

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke

 Candidate for U.S. Senate from Texas, Beto O'Rourke speaks during a news conference at the Hidalgo Memorial Park in Hidalgo, Texas, Monday, June 11, 2018.

O’Rourke, who rose to national prominence during his ultimately failed challenge of Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in 2018, officially announced his presidential campaign in mid-March, calling it “a defining moment of truth for this country and for every single one of us.”

I’m vanilla Obama. Been a criminal and wrote some bad stuff about kids but I can read a TelePrompTer and have a nice cadence. Why not? Read my quote(above) again. What does it mean. Nothing, just like every word Obama spoke for 8 years. I can say “I” more in my speeches that he can.

Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan

No picture again, sorry. Hate ABC. My claim to fame, I tried to take Pelosi out as speaker. Got slapped down hard. Pissed me off so I’m doing this to get even.

Sen. Bernie Sanders

 Sen. Bernie Sanders speaks in support of Abdul El-Sayed at a Get Out The Vote rally for Michigan Democratic gubernatorial candidate Abdul El-Sayed at Cobo Center in Detroit, Aug. 5, 2018.

After a 2016 campaign that saw him amass millions of supporters even as he finished second to Hillary Clinton, Sanders entered the 2020 race in February, predicting victory and pointing to the progressive idea he had championed as an outsider during the last cycle, like Medicare-for-all and free college tuition, that have become increasingly mainstream.

In an email to supporters announcing the launch of his campaign, Sanders further took aim at President Trump, using some of the starkest language of a Democratic candidate up to that point.

“I’ve got three houses and my wife bankrupted a college but I promise I will turn this country into Venezuela in a heartbeat. Have you seen the places the President of Venezuela has?

Rep. Eric Swalwell

The New York congressman and vocal critic of the president, officially launched his bid for the Democratic nomination on April 8, during an appearance on “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert.

I have a really cool ad running now. If you can spend $1 for a half bag of chips, you could give that to me instead” Can you buy a half bag for a dollar? Where?

Sen. Elizabeth Warren

 Sen. Elizabeth Warren gestures during a town hall style gathering in Woburn, Mass., Aug. 8, 2018.

Ever see a rabid Pekingese? That’s me. I was a Native American too, but Trump screwed that up. I’ll close down Wall Street. Don’t know what that does, but it sounds good to the dumb assed kids in this country.

Marianne Williamson

 Marianne Williamson seen on day three of Summit LA17 in Downtown Los Angeles's Historic Broadway Theater District, Nov. 5, 2017, in Los Angeles.

Author Marianne Williamson announced the launch of her campaign in Los Angeles in January after making six trips to Iowa and one to New Hampshire over the past year as she explored a bid.

Oprah and I are tight. Not so much with Dr. Phil.  Plus, I once finished fourth in a primary.

She also ran to represent California’s 33rd congressional district in 2014 as an independent, finishing fourth in the open primary, after endorsements from then-Rep. Keith Ellison, former Govs. Jennifer Granholm and Jesse Ventura, and former Reps. Dennis Kucinich and Alan Grayson.

Andrew Yang

 Andrew Yang, a candidate in the Democratic primaries for president, arrives at a town hall meeting sponsored by the Euclid chapter of the NAACP at Christ Lutheran Church in Cleveland, Feb. 24, 2019.

Yang, an entrepreneur, is running a presidential campaign most commonly noted for its support of universal basic income — a pledge to provide all Americans 18 and older with $1,000 per month.

Yin asked me to run.

Last, but not least, the unannounced frontrunner:

Biden and his brainUncle Joe, the brainless groper who will now refrain from that behavior. Dumber than a stump, but may be the Democrat candidate.

There you have it. Looks a lot like the Cleveland Browns line up the year they lost all 16 games.
