Former Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) said Sunday that he is “obviously looking” at a potential presidential bid in 2020.
“I’m not going to announce right now. I’m obviously looking at it. I’ve got time. I’ve got a lot of great relationships. I have 40 years of working for this party. I have plenty of friends in many states, so I don’t have to rush into this,” he said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
“But what folks want … is someone who is compulsively optimistic and realistic. And the Democrats have to lay out an agenda of success, of what we plan to do,” he added.
McAuliffe, who is a close ally of the Clintons and was the former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, pitched himself as a candidate who can get results.

“But what folks want … is someone who is compulsively optimistic and realistic.”
Realistic sounds to me like centrist dem speak for the same old incrementalism and dems “bipartisanship” with the rethugs that gets us nowhere.
Reminds of Shrillary’s “sure, they all (Bernie supporters) want a pony, but that’s not realistic” comments.

I can just see it now, I have to reincarnate the Cat Food Commission because Social Security isn’t realistic. Vote for McAuliffe and you’ll just get another neoliberal pos.

Most of today’s elites have the moral and social reasoning capacities of spoiled toddlers.

One I refuse to support. If they cheat Bernie I will vote for Trump. I will encourage everyone I know to vote for Trump.
Bernie or bust.
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".

IMO, you cannot do that and still claim to be a progressive. You are falling right into the Lesser of Two Evils trap. Please don’t. Better not to vote at all than to vote for the orange cretin, no matter who the opponent is.
