"[Kamala] Harris is not, of course, alone in possessing 'baggage' that will attract criticism from within her own party and intense media scrutiny."

"Joe Biden famously has enough baggage to derail a train’s luggage car. Critics of Bernie Sanders always suspected that conservatives built a massive oppo research file on the Vermont socialist that they would have pushed with hundreds of millions of dollars of negative 'stories' and ads had he won the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, matching or exceeding the damage they did to Hillary Clinton. Elizabeth Warren has struggled to overcome the stupid but pervasive 'Pocohontas' taunt, along...

#WheresMitch: McConnell Disappears Into The Background Of Shutdown

WASHINGTON (AP) — One of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s guiding principles is: “There’s no education in the second kick of a mule.” Now, deep into a government shutdown he cautioned President Donald Trump against, McConnell is not about to let himself be kicked again. The Republican leader has been conspicuously deferential to Trump since the shutdown began. He’s waiting on the president and Democrats to make a deal to end it. The result is an unusually inactive profile for the GOP ...

Trump Repeatedly Undermines Loyal Soldier Pence In The Shutdown Fight

WASHINGTON (AP) — Progress made, said one. Not so, said the other. We’ll meet again, said one. Waste of time, said the other.

The vice president has been one of the administration’s most visible emissaries during the shutdown fight, meeting with lawmakers, sitting for interviews and leading staff-level talks. But he’s been repeatedly — a...

"What brought Clinton down was public exposure not to her personality... but extended public scrutiny of every detail of a decades-long career in public life."

"This, in turn, is the exact same problem Biden will inevitably face as a presidential candidate.... And by 2020, there’s simply no reason to do that again. Most of the party’s bench consists of people like Kamala Harris and Amy Klobuchar and Cory Booker, who are young enough not to have participated in the [Iraq] war debate in Congress.... Foreign policy experience theoretically should be a big Biden advantage over his rivals. But in reality, on one of the only foreign policy controversies vote...

Harris’ Prosecutorial Past Defense In Memoir Ramps Up 2020 Speculation

WASHINGTON (AP) — As she nears a decision on whether to seek the presidency, Sen. Kamala Harris is taking on what could be a hurdle in a Democratic primary: her past as a prosecutor. In her memoir published Tuesday, the California Democrat describes herself as a “progressive prosecutor” and says it’s a “false choice” to decide between supporting the police and advocating for greater scrutiny of law enforcement. The argument is aimed at liberal critics of her record who argue she was sometimes ...

Beto Says He Won’t Decide On 2020 Run Until February At Earliest

The closely watched former Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D-TX) is planning a road trip to meet voters outside of his home state without any staff or press — a perfect opportunity to mull a 2020 presidential bid, a decision he says he won’t make until February at the earliest. According to a Monday Wall Street Journal report, O’Rourke’s reticence — along with the indecision of possible candidates like former Vice President Joe Biden — has put something of a pause on Democratic announcements. Sen. Elizab...

Sending A Signal? Obama Calls For ‘Fresh Blood’ At Leadership Event

President Barack Obama gave a speech for the Obama Foundation in Hawaii Sunday night during which he said we have a “deficit of leadership” and “need fresh blood,” according to a Honolulu Civil Beat report.  The comment may have been innocuous: Obama was speaking at an event dedicated to nurturing future leaders in the Asia-Pacific region. But if the President was sending a subtle signal about his 2020 preferences, it would be bad news for his former vice president. Joe Biden, openly consider...
