The 2020 presidential election began just like all previous ones; the political party not in control of the Executive Branch – the Oval Office, the Presidency – geared up to challenge the incumbent, the leader of the party in control. One by one, aspirants made the announcement and declared their intention to bid for the presidency of the United States.
By the time the late comers “to the party” had arrived, the Democrat Party has already tallied more than a dozen individuals vying to be the next commander-in-chief. (In 2016, there were 16 Republican candidates who wanted to occupy the Oval Office.) Political pundits began to reason outloud whether that many candidates were beneficial or a waste of time. Late night show comedians rejoiced; some referred to the growing list of Democrat candidates “like a caravan” heading to the Oval Office. The more the merrier!
