John Delaney is a nice guy, and there really isn’t anything outright wrong with him. We certainly don’t mean to insult the man personally when saying that he has a snowball’s chance in hell during the upcoming battle for the democratic nomination. His main problem being that he’s unimpressive to say the least. Just another white businessman turned politician, the only thing even remotely unique about the man is that he’s Irish.
He has moderate tendencies, which is nice. He isn’t afraid to shake hands with rivals. But his rival for governor in Massachusetts, Moderate Republican Larry Hogan (who’s also a possible 2020 runner), is far more interesting.
Unfortunately, out of the two possible candidates for president, we got the Democrat who is a very boring addition to the already crowded race. He can’t even be considered a Darkhorse. Furthermore, Larry Hogan has barely even hinted at running. News outlets keep acting hopeful and insisting that he is dropping strong hints, but I just don’t see it happening unless republicans begin to band together against Trump and show that they would support a republican campaign against the president in 2020.
In the meantime we will have to deal with Hogan’s faux-JFK rival loitering around the bottom of the democrats’ food chain. I know it sounds harsh, but we’ve already ruled out Cory Booker because we felt even his Obama Lite appeal can’t stop the women’s wave that is coming in 2020. Booker is twice the candidate Delaney is as far as voter appeal goes. How John plans on surmounting that, and the many hurdles after (Liz, Kamala, Tulsi, and Kirsten), remains a mystery. Besides pandering to Iowa like anyone would do, he has been quiet in the media so far.
We have him down in the pool as the next candidate to drop out. But, like all things, only time will truly tell. Stay tuned!
