Who would you like to see run for President of the United States in 2024?

  1. Following the trend of electing older candidates they would have to exhume someone from their grave. They can’t get much older, do they?

  2. I think it’s quite telling of how bad the current political landscape is that most people responding in this thread can only give conditions of things they wouldn’t want to see anymore rather than actual candidates.

  3. Could it be something like people just don’t know the candidates? Like there are a few senators and some reps and people are not considering them bc they just don’t know them?

  4. "We promise nothing and deliver even less" was the mission statement of the Super Best Friends youtube channel, which was excellent. Therefore, you'll be a good president.

  5. Let’s just temporarily make him president until the war is over. Then he’ll have to give up his emergency powers.

  6. I appreciate a leader who knows his history. Heard him talking about this "Tragedy" once and he seemed to really take it's message to heart.

  7. I think nobody should be able to officially run for President till August 2024. No campaign ads till then. Campaign season should be 3 months long, not 2 years.

  8. Australian here. Our PM election is happening now. It gets called 6 weeks before the election day. Has been a long 2 weeks already.

  9. This would be amazing but then everyone would probably vote for who they already know and not open their minds to new folks. 🤷🏼‍♀️

  10. Imagine the campaign attacks on how unqualified and inexperienced a 55 year old is. America's presidential politics is really a place like no other.

  11. True story: my neighbor walked up to me, about a week ago, to introduce himself. Says he's running for president in 2024 and would love my vote...he's like 50ish black man, real nice fellow. we live in butt fuck no where in NC.

  12. My high school class president. He's just a really good guy and there's been jokes about how we'd all vote him into office if he ever runs. Hence why he was made class president.

  13. Remember that Presidential physical fitness test we had back in middle school? Give that to the presidential candidates.

  14. I agree but I think it’s the biggest pipe dream of all the policy ideas that get thrown around. You’d need more than half of Congress to decide to actively undermine the system that keeps all of them in power.

  15. With how much power and influence they have over influencing campaigns I imagine this would be the biggest hurdle to overcome.

  16. She's not a bad pick for the Dems, as far as finding compromise is concerned. She doesn't have the polarizing reputation that figures like AOC do—partially because she's a white woman—which she can also use to her benefit.

  17. I am definitely part of her fan club. But I would like to see her do a term in the Senate before running for President. I think she's the natural successor for Diane Feinstein's seat.

  18. Katie is awesome. We share the same office building and I’ve talked to her and her staff a bunch and they are all just really good people and Katie’s intelligence is on another level. I would vote for her in a heartbeat.

  19. I’m really disappointed I had to scroll so far down on “best” comments to find a genuine answer with an actual name.

  20. I'm just going to say Andy Beshear, the current governor of Kentucky. He had only been in office for 3 or so months when the pandemic hit and for the most part he handled it very well, while also bringing a lot of transparency to the office, doing a great job working to unify the state as best as he can, and he seems like a genuinely good person.

  21. As a former Kentuckian non trump republican, I think he’s done a pretty good job, despite all the loudmouths I see on FB complain about everything he does

  22. Someone who makes me feel like I did in 2008 when I felt like I was voting for someone and not against someone else.

  23. What I liked about 2008 is that although I had a very strong preference for one candidate over the other, there was never any doubt in my mind that both of them sincerely had the best interests of the country at heart.

  24. I don't even want to vote for someone, I want to vote for SOMETHING. Something I believe in and something that is for the greater good of EVERYONE. The worst thing that happened with Trump that is the most concerning is the absolute adulation and obsession with the politician. It didn't start with Trump but it sure seems like it was pushed to a very unhealthy and scary level.

  25. I have a dream. That one day every person in this nation will control their own destiny. A nation of the truly free, dammit. A nation of action, not words, ruled by strength, not committee!

  26. For a second I thought you were recommending Representative Armstrong out of ND and I was simultaneously disgusted and really confused by the comments.

  27. The overwhelming number of useless answers in this thread basically tells you everything you need to know about the political discourse of reddit. A great place to hear about problems and a shit place for answers.

  28. Its hard to imagine any single candidate (especially a realistic candidate) who could possibly fix the system or even remotely represent the interests of the average American. I think what you see in this thread is a symptom of that exasperation.

  29. I’m not convinced a single person can do this. Too many others (news, social media etc) are making too much money keeping people divided

  30. "We must go forward, not backward. Upward, not forward. And always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom."

  31. Someone who actually knows how the internet works. I'm not expecting a degree in computer science or anything, but if you're gonna be governing over 300 million people you should really know basic things like what cookies are and what the cloud is just off the top of your head

  32. I kept scrolling down until I found a top-level reply with an actual name. I scrolled past at least three "someone under large-number years old" posts before getting to this one.

  33. Reading these comments makes me both sad and excited for the future. I dream of the day when money, family networking and nepotism doesn't decide who is running.

  34. Hell, I’d settle for Raskin to be my dad if he doesn’t run for president. The editorial he and his wife wrote about his son is the most touching thing I’ve ever read.

  35. I agree. And is one of the few politicians that can be seen charismatic, aside from having a good combination or intelligence, kindness, trustworthiness, assertiveness and a relatable “common Joe or I’d have a beer” type of guy which could do good in the most difficult demographic for democrats:white males. Also, not easy to attack and smart at not bitting baits
