Brazile: ‘At least’ 25 People Will Run for Dem Nomination

DNC spoiler Donna Brazile is still on her book tour despite Hillary’s chagrin, which is serving as a sort of guarantee that the nail is finally in the Clintons’ political coffin.

And now Brazile is predicting that, with Hillary gone, the number of candidates likely to make a bid for the White House against President Trump could swell to a minimum of 25.

And she’s naming names.

Among the likely hopefuls for the Democrat nomination — in addition to Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders — are Sens. Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, VA Gov. Terry McAuliffe, CO Gov. John Hickenlooper, NY Gov. Andrew Cuomo and LA Mayor Eric Garcetti.

It’s likely to be a clown show that pales the 2016 GOP primary in comparison.

Here’s more from Washington Free Beacon…

Former Democratic National Committee interim chair Donna Brazile predicted a massive field of 2020 presidential candidates on Tuesday, telling MSNBC’s Chris Matthews she foresees 25 potential Democratic contenders.

Matthews asked Brazile about possible candidates like Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) and Joe Biden, who are 76 and 75, respectively, and wondered if there should be an “outer age where you’re just too old to run” for presidents.

“Chris, I predict tonight that there will be literally over 25 people who will consider running for president,” she said. “Perhaps Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders.”

Other rumored contenders include Sens. Cory Booker (D., N.J.), Kirsten Gillibrand (D., N.Y.), Elizabeth Warren (D., Mass.), Kamala Harris (D., Calif.), Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe, Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti.

“Should the older guys run?” Matthews asked.

“The last thing I’m going to do at the age of 57 is to kick somebody who’s 65 or 70 and tell them that their days are over,” Brazile said.

“Donna, they’re way over 70,” Matthews said, laughing. “Why are you dodging this?”

“Chris, we have a big bench. I’m not asking anybody to leave the room,” Brazile said. “I think the Democratic Party should allow everybody to run, everybody who wants to run. Let’s not dog people just because of their age.”
