Here are the current 28 people who are running for the Democrat nomination for U.S. president in 2020 (including the seven who have dropped out of the campaign). Note: John Kremer is still a candidate for the Democrat nomination for U.S. president.

Sen. Michael Bennet, Colorado – “If Democrats are as serious as they say they are about defeating Donald Trump, Bennet should be their nominee. … Because Bennet, 54, was eight when Joe Biden came to the Senate, Bennet has not had to conduct a Bidenesque Grovel Tour to apologize for deviations, decades ago, from today’s progressive catechism.” – George Will, long-time conservative columnist (just the kind of champion you want to have as a Democrat!)

Former Vice President Joe Biden, Delaware – “Bid farewell to Joe Biden. I say that with regret, for the former vice president is the nicest of fellows, lacking malice, who likes people and likes doing something for them. Yet, his gaffes continue feeding the impression that he is a touch gaga.” – Richard Cohen, columnist, Washington Post

“I think Joe Biden might be suffering from that same white entitlement and privilege and ego where he’s just that old school white male who feels like ‘hey man, they need me, I don’t need them or I’ve got them already.’ That’s not respect.” – Charlamagne Tha God on The Breakfast Club radio show

Sen. Cory Booker, New Jersey – “That seems like a contradiction that you would would associate yourself with folks who seem not in line with the values that your campaign has sort of lifted up.” – Maurice Mitchell, national director of the Working Families Party

Gov. Steve Bullock, Montana – “Given that Bullock will not make the next Democratic debate due to his lack of widespread — or even marginal — support, it’s time for him to come home to Montana, where there is plenty of challenging work to do.” – George Ochenski, columnist, Missoulian

Mayor Pete Buttigieg, South Bend, Indiana – “If you can’t even address those issues in a city of 100,000, my God, how can you address those issues in 50 states?” – Mario Sims, South Bend pastor (speaking about racism, poverty, and a lack of diversity)

“God places a very high value on all human life. Everyone is created fearfully and wonderfully in the image of God with intrinsic value. That doesn’t start at the first breath, it starts when we enter our mother’s womb. … If we’re going to say we’re for all people and we love all people, but we don’t value human life in the womb, that’s being a hypocrite. You’re hypocritical if you don’t stand up for all life.” – Ryan Glezman, Buttigieg’s brother-in-law

Former HUD Secretary Julián Castro, Texas – “I don’t believe only in reproductive freedom, I believe in reproductive justice. And, you know, what that means is that just because a woman — or let’s also not forget someone in the trans community, a trans female, is poor, doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have the right to exercise that right to choose.” – Julián Castro

Mayor Bill de Blasio, New York, New York – “At what point does the mayor take responsibility for what occurred? At what point does Bratton take responsibility for what occurred? So, to me, you’re a phony bastard.” – Ed Mullins, head of New York City Sergeants Benevolent Association

Former Rep. John Delaney, Maryland – “Former Maryland Congressman John Delaney has scored points critiquing left wing initiatives, but he has campaigned in all 99 Iowa counties for two years and has nothing to show for it. – Albert Hunt, columnist, The Hill

Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, Hawaii – “She has a relatively bare-bones political operation and a history of outlier positions, from her foreign policy stances to suing Google for free-speech impingement. Some of her own advisers do not think she will win.” – Nellie Bowles, reporter, New York Times

Sen. Kamala Harris, California – “Time after time, when progressives urged her to embrace criminal justice reforms as a district attorney and then the state’s attorney general, Ms. Harris opposed them or stayed silent.” – Lara Bazelon, law professor

Sen. Amy Klobuchar, Minnesota – “We are becoming a joke, and it is making me a joke.” – Amy Klobuchar (New York Times story)

John Kremer, author, New Mexico – I am a Kennedy/Stevenson Democrat, an old-time decent Democrat who cares what happens to this country. I love the ideas and programs of Adlai E. Stevenson, Jr. (twice a presidential candidate in the 1950s) and John F. Kennedy (U.S. President).

Mayor Wayne Messam, Miramar, Florida – “Messam’s bid is failing horribly: He’s polling at essentially zero percent, and he’s been shut out of every televised Democratic debate this year. For some reason, he refuses to just drop out. … While he’s busy trying to raise his national profile, activists in his own town say he’s neglecting to do some basic mayoral work.” – Jerry Iannelli, reporter, Miami New Times

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, Texas – “I know I was a giant asshole to be around sometimes, and you all never allowed my shortcomings to get in the way of running the best campaign this state has ever seen.” – Beto O’Rourke, failed U.S. Senate candidate

Rep. Tim Ryan, Ohio – “Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan stood out at Tuesday night’s Democratic presidential debate — for not putting his hand over his heart for the singing of the national anthem.” – New York Post story

Sen. Bernie Sanders, Vermont – “I think this is a very important point. How are these candidates (but Warren and Sanders in particular) going to bring their ideas to fruition?” – Amber Phillips, columnist, The Fix

Former rep and admiral Joe Sestak, Pennslyvania – “He chewed up and spit out good people to the point that he was a detriment to good order and discipline, a veritable hazard to navigation in even the galley slave environment of The Pentagon.” – CDR Salamander

Tom Steyer, businessman – “Steyer is the ultimate rent-seeker who depends on government connections to produce subsidies and mandates that make his green energy investments profitable. … Steyer uses his political donations and consequent connections to enhance his already vast fortune.” – John Hinderaker, columnist, PowerLine

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts – “I found last night’s debate bitterly disappointing. I had hoped that Warren would use the occasion to start climbing out of the hole she’s stumbled into on health care. Instead she dug it deeper.” – Paul Krugman, economist

In the third debate, Warren dissed Andrew Yang by answering his question, jumping in before he could answer the question asked of him. Bad form for Warren.

Marianne Williamson, bestselling author, California – “I didn’t think the left was so mean. I didn’t think the left lied like this. I thought the right did that. I thought we were better.” – Marianne Williamson

Andrew Yang, entrepreneur, New York – “Andrew Yang 2020: The world is fucked, you’re on your own, take some money, head to higher ground. … Taken all together, Yang’s dystopian vision and proposed answer can fit uncomfortably well within doomerist attitudes.” – Max Read, columnist, New York Magazine

John Frederick Kremer for President 2020

My definition of a free society is a society where it is safe to be unpopular. Where it’s safe to say what’s on your mind, especially when everyone disagrees. Where it’s safe to believe what you believe, especially when everyone else’s beliefs stand elsewhere. — Adlai E. Stevenson Jr., presidential candidate
