With the unofficial start of the 2020 race for the White House well under way, Democrats still look to be fielding at least two dozen potential candidates, and a quick analysis shows the fight could shape up to be two camps warring again each other: the old and the young. On the young end of the spectrum, we’ll likely see Senators Kamala Harris and Cory Booker as well as Beto O’Rourke, and on the older end, we may see Senators Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders along with Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Eric Holder, and Michael Bloomberg.

There was a lot of weeping and gnashing of teeth throughout Republican Land about the number of contenders for the title. The early prevailing sentiment was that the pesky B Team contenders were getting in the way of smooth sailing for the complainer’s somewhat more mainstream and/or viable candidate.
That lament was voiced most often by the Rubio people, who were relying on a strategy that consisted of little more than than, “He’s the best choice because shut up.” It was also heard from Cruz supporters, John Kasich’s imaginary friend Clive, and the seventeen comatose Republican millionaires who had long ago vowed to vote for whichever Bush was running.
