It's no surprise that at age 77 Bernie Sanders is trying again in 2020. But a significant difference this time around is that he will not be alone peddling his message of "revolution" and moving the party further toward liberal or progressive positions.
It’s not too early to think about how the 2020 campaign can be a better one than the one we had in 2016. Toward that end, it would be useful to form a basic threshold of decency and legitimacy for anyone running in 2020 and to ask all candidates, including President Trump, to adhere to it.
All these Democrats vying for the presidential nomination in 2020 will likely be overshadowed in public attention in 2019 by the news media spotlight and attention on Mr. Trump's struggle for political survival in the Oval Office over the remaining two years of his first term.

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley is thinking about running for president on the Democratic ticket by appealing to Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren's populist fans. So it is interesting that Mr. O'Malley thinks the best way to reach out to her fans is to say remarkably stupid things.
Hillary Clinton, according to all the polls is the overwhelming favorite to be the Democratic nominee for president in 2016. So the tantalizing question is: Who will be standing next to her when the cheers explode and a zillion balloons cascade at the convention? Could it possibly be Sen. Elizabeth Warren?
Some of the nation's top university officials, including the chancellor of the University System of Maryland, are calling on Congress to roll back what they see as a byzantine and ever-expanding system of federal regulations that is costing schools millions of dollars each year.
WASHINGTON -- Rep. John Delaney, who spent a career in financial services before running for Congress, joined President Barack Obama on Monday in calling for tougher regulations on brokers who help people plan for retirement -- offering his endorsement of a plan that is unlikely to sit well with some on Wall Street.
Never in memory have so many presidential hopefuls plunged this early before an election year into the money chase to put themselves on the path to the White House. And for whatever reason, all of them are Republicans.

The EPA and CFPB arguably have more power to issue regulations that affect our economy than any other regulatory bodies, yet they're among the worst offenders when it comes to cronyism and favoritism among their ranks. It's time Americans are clear that partisan activists and impartial regulation don't mix.
