The Guardian just published this article: 'He'll be re-elected': Trump and allies tout the sweet smell of 2020 success:
Basic historical reality, to beat Trump, the candidate must confirm to the realities of: Jonathon's POTUS Cousins: The Interrelated Kinship of American Presidents -- an interrelated history of our times
Basically, beating Trump requires a POTUS COUSIN who is also a great grandchild of William the Conqueror. Sounds silly, but if 45 POTUS, only three did not meet those standards. If those 42, the least related had the worst administrations. If the three, history is mixed on their tenure.
Martin Van Buren was Dutch New York, so predated the British ... The others were married into the cousin line. Trump Is the father to Tiffany, who is a solid cousin through her mother -- even though Donald isn't a Cousin in the period after 1600, he is still a grandchild of William the Conqueror and, therefore, one of the 42.
To defeat Trump and not destroy the nation, the Democrats need to run a SOLID POTUS COUSIN...one at least as solid as Tiffany.
If they fail to do that, they will fail to win the White House.
Thus, WARREN IS OUT; SANDERS IS OUT; HILLARY PROVED SHE IS OUT; most of those mentioned and speculated are out.
So here we are, Saturday, 13 October 2018, and we already know the outcome of the 2020 election.
Of course, Democrats could find a way to impeach and convict Trump...But The would elevate Mike Pence, who is about as far from POTUS COUSIN status as can be achieved... so Trump's impeachment destroys the nation.
Have fun kiddies, attack Trump all you want, he still gets a second term...you aren't attacking him, you're undermining 230 years of American history and success.
