      Next president in 3 years or 7 years? In other words will he challenge trump or whichever Republican in 2020

        Delaney’s already running for the 2020 Democratic nomination for president.

          I don’t think that he looks enough presidential to be the next President…

          • follers says:

            Well, that obviously was not a criteria in the 2016 election.

          • andrew says:

            The next President could be a woman, an Hispanic, or maybe an Italian-American or a Jewish-American. Delaney looks boring.

            Yeah, it might be Bernie, actually. But what I wrote is just something I always say when someone announces they’re running.

        • bearboy says:

          Yes Bernie Sanders is a happy guy and to that I say God bless him. But I have to learn more about this John Delaney guy and decide if I should vote for him in the primaries. anyway if I ever became president I would give a shout out to ethnic celebs unlike Trump who views this website everyday and gives our entertaining website no credit at all :(
