As a reporter who's covered the past 2yrs with increasing despair, I must say that it is just truly uplifting to look at a slate of Democratic candidates who are smart and focused, hard-working and exciting.

It's hard to imagine we do not get our woman president in 2020.
I have spoken extensively about why Biden & Bernie aren't options--we must have a 2020 nominee who can be a 2024 incumbent. I feel hopeful that voters won't make that mistake & will look at fresh voices, their work for America and remember the message of the midterms: Women.
2016 was a proving ground. I wrote in a column this week that #HillaryClinton took the body blows for years so that we could see what a tough, brave, progressive woman candidate looked like over a grueling campaign. It's painful she isn't in the WH creating change.
The Democratic Party & #Constitution failed us in ways no other country's constitution would have--any other country in the world would've held a new election between Clinton & Trump after it was revealed that the election had been tampered with. She is our rightful president.
#Hillary may still run in 2020, but I think she knows--unlike Sanders and Biden--that the window has shut for that rematch she deserved. Her people are now moving to work for #Harris. A torch is passing. She could still be someone's VP choice in 2020, though. Or SoS or AG.
What we do know is that #HillaryClinton is our one female elder stateswoman. And as such she deserves respect and to be heard. She offered the most progressive platform in US history and every candidate who wants our votes will have to meet and/or exceed what she offered.
But today I feel hopeful about America's future, that we can wrest ourselves from the blinding hate and bigotry of this presidency and the plethora of casual cruelties it has visited upon so many different vulnerable groups and seek a brighter future and heal this nation.
#NancyPelosi augured the #midterrms & a preview of our collective future: women, POC, #LGBTQ--these candidates became congresspersons and they are our voices in the halls of power.

2020 is our time.
Change is in the air.
And I will be reporting on it every step of the way.
