I shall pose the question once again that I posed months ago: why is the Democratic presidential field the field of AARP (American Association of Retired Persons), and where is the party’s diversity? Does one really have to be at retirement age and white to be considered a Democratic candidate for president? Okay, okay, Elizabeth Warren is related to Hiawatha or to Sitting Bull or maybe just to Bull, but she has not yet declared, and the rest of the Democratic Party’s aspiring candidates are all white and old enough to be accepting Social Security benefits.
The only exception is Maryland’s former governor Martin O’Malley. He is 52 and often campaigns shirtless to prove some obscure point, perhaps that he is younger than Hillary Rodham Clinton. Possibly he has his eye on President Vladimir Putin’s job. Actually, he would have a better chance at the presidency of Russia than the presidency of the good ole U.S. of A. He now is polling at 2% here. Could his polling in Russia be any worse?
