    Default Let's list all the potential candidates for President in 2016

    I thought it would be interesting to compile all list of all possible candidates for President in 2016. Please include what party and why you think they should be on the list. For instance I think Al Gore (D) should be on the list because he may be able to be painted as an anti or post Obama Democrat option. So feel free to include anyone, no matter how remote the odds, as long as you do legitimately think it is possible.



    Democrat: Tier 1
    Hillary Clinton
    Joe Biden
    Andrew Cuomo
    Deval Patrick
    Martin O'Malley
    Tim Kaine

    Democrat: Tier 2
    Julian Castro
    Mark Warner
    Kirsten Gillabrand
    Evan Bayh
    Amy Klobuchar
    Antonio Villaraigosa
    Brian Schweitzer
    Debbie Schultz
    Cory Booker
    Jay Nixon

    Democrat: Tier 3
    John Hickenlooper
    Rahm Emanuel
    Joe Manchin
    Dennis Kucinich
    Al Gore
    Jack Markell
    Ed Rendell

    Republican: Tier 1
    Rand Paul
    Marco Rubio
    Paul Ryan
    Jeb Bush
    Chris Christie
    Bobby Jindal
    Rick Santorum

    Republican: Tier 2
    Jon Huntsman Jr
    Condoleezza Rice
    Mike Pence
    Scott Walker
    Susana Martinez
    Eric Cantor
    Bob McDonnell
    Sarah Palin
    Jim DeMint
    Mike Huckabee

    Republican: Tier 3
    Rick Perry
    Nikky Haley
    John Kasich
    Michele Bachmann
    Mitch Daniels
    Rob Portman
    Tim Scott
    Brian Sandoval
    Kelly Ayotte

    Libertarian:
    Gary Johnson

    Green:
    Jill Stein

    Other:
    Andrew Napolitano
    Vermin Supreme
    Jessie Ventura
    Michael Bloomberg
    Herman Cain
    Virgil Goode
    Jeff Boss
    Jimmy McMillan



    This thread is meant to be fluid between now and 2016. I'm giving slight bumps to 2nd/3rd Tier candidates that could be VP picks, could be put in play and catch on because there seems to be alot of fanfair about minorities at least being the VP picks or because somebody (like Huckabee, Ayotte) can step into a primary and take a state from Rand.

    I've been keeping track of most media mentions of potential Republican presidential candidates. The list I've compiled is below. I posted this in another thread too. They are all Republican. Of course, most of them probably won't run and most don't have any good chance of winning.

    Jeb Bush
    Paul Ryan
    Chris Christie
    Marco Rubio
    Rick Santorum
    Mike Huckabee
    Sarah Palin
    Scott Walker
    Jim DeMint
    Rick Perry
    Bob McDonnel
    Bobby Jindal
    John Kasich
    Nikki Haley
    Sam Graves
    Susana Martinez
    Rob Portman
    Mitch Daniels
    Gary Johnson
    Rand Paul

    Nice list, but there are a couple of people on that list that won't run if another person runs. For example, Bush won't run if Rubio does and vice-versa. DeMint won't run if Paul does and Paul almost certainly will, DeMint seems to have no interest in the presidency.

    I think the problem with media rumors is that they usually discount former politicians.
    I mean, take a look at the 2012 field:
    - Former Governor Mitt Romney
    - Former Governor Gary Johnson
    - Former Governor John Huntsman
    - Former US Representative and Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich
    - Former Governor Tim Pawlenty
    - Former Governor Buddy Roemer
    - Former Senator Rick Santorum

    Romney was the only predictable one because he ran in 2008. I imagine that's why Santorum is on your list.

    So I wouldn't be surprised if some former politician we all forgot about somehow reappears come primary season.

    You are probably right about Rubio/Bush DeMint/Paul. I'm wondering if someone like Steve King from Iowa would run for president. It would make it impossible to win the Iowa caucus. And put pressure on winning New Hampshire.

    It's impossible to guess the candidates at this point. We were pretty damn certain Huckabee, Palin and Barbour would be in the 2012 race. (By we, I mean politicos)

    I think Corbett might be in the running. The R's want to change the map now that they can't win Blue VA/CO

    I'll make a list, based off Uriah's, and put them in tiers based on a combo of likelyhood and "top tier" potential. Now, the tiers are based on who may run so each tier will have many more potential candidates then actual contenders, but this is how I see it:


    Tier 1:
    Jeb Bush
    Paul Ryan
    Chris Christie
    Marco Rubio
    Rand Paul
    Mike Huckabee
    Scott Walker

    Tier 2:
    Rick Santorum
    Sarah Palin
    Rick Perry
    Bob McDonnel
    Bobby Jindal

    Tier 3:
    John Kasich
    Nikki Haley
    Sam Graves
    Sam Brownback
    Ken Cucinelli
    Susana Martinez
    Rob Portman
    Mitch Daniels

    I think Christie, Paul, and Rubio are the only ones with any real potential for a 2016 run. However, if Hillary Clinton runs against them, none of them have a chance.

    3 wins in a row for any party are rare ; only Bush 41 in 1988 did it post WWII, so the Republican is the favorite

    Hillary is white, and no way would get black turn out the way Obama did

    the GOP VP will be a minority, probably Hispanic, unless Rubio is the nominee.

    Blacks typically vote 90%+ Democrat, so that's not quite a true statement

    Hillary would get the percentage, but not the turnout numbers or enthusiasm (unless the GOP has a black VP)

    That is called entertainment. He never said he believed in lizard people, just that other people did.

    You think so? Hmmm. I am thinking post-Obama, Democrats would choose a more conservative Democrat than Hillary.
