2016 - The Future of Politics


Recommended Posts

On the old version of P4E, there was a scenario called 2012 - The Future of Politics, which allowed you to choose a scenario within the scenario, such as Hillary as the President, or Romney as the President, with Hillary as the challenger etc. There were many, many, candidates to choose from. I'm going to have a go a making a version for 2016, but probably without Primaries. This is going to have probably more candidates than almost any other P4E Scenario in history. I'm also going to add celebrites who are known for voicing their political views.

Any suggestions would be welcome.

I like this idea, and I do have a few suggestions.

I'm not sure about some of these candidates. Peter Schiff supported Ron Paul as a Republican, and is running as a Republican. He hasn't shown any sign of joining the Constitution Party.

If Paterson loses to Cuomo, which is looks like he's going to do, he's toast.

Joe Biden promised not to run for President again, and I think that will definitely be the case in 2016 - he'd be almost 74.

I really don't see Martha Coakley running for national office after she just lost the Massachusetts Senate election.

Nader would be 80 years old at this point. I don't think he'd run in 2016. Clint Eastwood would be about that age, too, and he was a Republican last I checked. Warren Beatty would also be about 80. Jerry Brown would be almost 80, and unlikely to run for president after his previous three attempts all failed. Some of your celebrities are highly unlikely candidates for office on both sides of the aisle.

In regards to Bill Clinton, he'd be 70 and has heart problems. Would he really run against his wife? I don't think Bush would run either - maybe Jeb, but would George run against his brother?

Yeah, I mostly agree with most of the above post, though I will correct that Joe Biden has actually been asked several times if he'll run in 2016, and I've never seen him rule it out, just that he doesn't think he will.

And I'd also like to say, I don't think age would keep Brown from running for President again, considering everytime he's run before he's been a huge underdog (1980 against the President and Ted Kennedy?), and he obviously prefers running for office than actually serving (he's run for SoS of CA, Governor three times now, Senate, President 3 times, Mayor of Oakland, and Attorney General of CA)
