The Hill is reporting that a long-time Democratic Party insider is telling them there is no potential 2020 candidate currently in the fold who rings genuine to the voters.
Candidates like Elizabeth Warren and Joe Biden come off as glossy and like “divas,” or “Celine Dion” and not “The Beatles,” the source claims.
As for Bernie Sanders, who does strike many voters as genuine, he’ll be 80 years old very soon.
Furthermore, insiders are speculating that no man will be able to achieve the nomination in 2020…it will have to be a woman, due to the sleazy histories of so many leading men in the party – much of which is just now coming to light.

One long-time Democratic Party insider said Friday that the party’s sable of potential 2020 presidential candidates are not a very impressive bunch.
Democrats are casting about to find new faces with fresh ideas after last year’s electoral defeats, but one strategist is not enthused with the options. Many of leading contenders are not doing a good job of standing out from the pack, according to veteran Democratic insider Phil Singer.
“You have a bunch of Celine Dions but there’s no Beatles,” Singer, an adviser who served as press secretary on Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential run, told the Hill about the 30 or so Democrats rumored to be vying for the White House.
One of Singer’s cohorts argues the list isn’t all that tepid. Democratic strategist Brad Bannon told reporters that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders could be the new standard bearer for the party.
“His people have never gone away,” said Bannon, who heads a Democratic consulting and polling firm in Washington, D.C. “And he has a loyal core following out there that will be with him come hell or high water.”
“The Sanders wing is becoming the dominant wing of the party,” he added, noting the leftward tilt of the Democratic Party.
Democrats have been reeling ever since reports came out in November suggesting Clinton financially backed the Democratic National Committee (DNC) well before she became the 2016 presidential candidate.
Former President Barack Obama and various Democratic officials left the DNC in such a decrepit state that Clinton was forced to bail out the party during her run, interim DNC chief Donna Brazile noted in her book about her time at the DNC.
Her report might have injected some more energy into Sanders’ already-strong support base.
Other advisers believe Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren might make a better option over the 79-year old Sanders.
“I’m not sure a man can get nominated as the Democratic nominee right now,” Democratic strategist Jamal Simmons told reporters, referring to the slew of sexual allegation charges various women have lodged against congressmen like Democratic Sen. Al Franken of Minnesota.
Who will it be, folks? Crazy Bernie, Pocahontas or a dark horse who ends up with an equally-Trumpian nickname?
