Hillary Clinton failed to become Americas first female president last November when she was beaten by Donald Trump.
But which women could win in 2020?
1. Elizabeth Warren
The current favourite to become Americas first female president is the progressive Democratic senator from Massachusetts, Elizabeth Warren. Warren was first elected to the senate in 2012, and is up for re-election in 2018. Plenty of outlets have speculated that Warren could be preparing a 2020 presidential bid, including earlier this year in the Observer.
After Donald Trump and Mike Pence, Warren is the third favourite American to become president in 2020, according to Oddschecker, with William Hill offering odds of 10/1 for a Warren presidency. The site offers odds of 2/1 for a Trump win, as well as odds of 8/1 for his vice president.
2. Michelle Obama
Predecessor to Melania Trump, worldwide education champion and wife of Barack Obama, Michelle is currently the betting markets second-favourite women to become US president after the 2020 election. An unofficial Facebook page called Michelle Obama For President 2020 has almost half a million likes, however, her most avid of supporters will be disappointed to hear that Mrs. Obama has declared that she has no plans to run for the countrys top job, as reported in the Independent.
Then again, it would not be the first time a politician said something and later changed their mind
The odds of a Michelle Obama presidency are 20/1 with Ladbrokes.
3. Kamala Harris
Harris is a newcomer on the national political stage, but she has already been tipped as a possible 2020 Democratic candidate, including in the Guardian. Harris only became a senator (from California) in January this year, and has previously served as her states attorney general.
She has even backed Bernie Sanders forward-thinking single-payer healthcare bill, as reported by the Washington Post, something which could help her with progressives in the 2020 primaries should she decide to run. William Hill offer odds of 33/1 for a Harris presidency in 2020 while Coral offer odds of 20/1.
4. Amy Klobuchar
Klobuchar is another Democratic senator, this time from Minnesota, and has also been tipped as a possible presidential candidate. She is more experienced in national politics than Warren and Harris, having served in the senate since 2007.
Ladbrokes offer odds of 50/1 for a Klobuchar presidency in 2020.
5. Hillary Clinton
Could Hillary Clinton make a comeback? Before winning two presidential election victories in 1968 and 1972 respectively, Richard Nixon was the Republican Partys nominee in 1960, but ultimately lost out to JFK. A Clinton comeback would not be the most far-fetched thing to happen in American politics, but a Trump versus Clinton rematch seems unlikely, probably why her odds are so long (PaddyPower: 50/1, Coral 40/1).
6. Catherine Cortez Masto
Cortez Masto is another Democratic senator that has been talked about as a possible presidential candidate in 2020, albeit on a lesser scale compared to the likes of Elizabeth Warren or Kamala Harris. Her political progression is remarkably similar to Harris going from being a state attorney general (this time for Nevada) to becoming her state's senator following last years election.
PaddyPower odds: 33/1, Ladbrokes: 50/1. Coral: 50/1.
7. Kirsten Gillibrand
Gillibrand was first elected as a senator from New York in 2008, taking over from Hillary Clinton, who vacated the seat when she joined the Obama administration as secretary of state. She has also served in the US House of Representatives.
William Hill offer odds of 40/1 for a Gillibrand presidency while Ladbrokes offers odds of 50/1, however, the Hill has reported that she has declared that she will not be running.
As with a Michelle Obama run, three years is a long time: anything can happen and minds can change.
Conservative Republican West Virginia Senator.
yes, because you MUST RUN A WOMAN!
The ONLY requirement for this next round is a Vagina.
Wow. Think I just lost 10 IQ points by reading that idiocy.
God help us if any of these b**ches gets elected.
Michelle Obama is not going to be president. She made it clear she hated being in D.C. and all that stuff. She doesn’t want to be president. This list is probably based on vapor.
Ok, I got my 10 IQ points back by reading your comment.
All libs really??
I’m beginning to think women shouldn’t even be allowed to vote !!!
After reading this Joe Biden gets a sex change
Wouldn’t it be fun to see the leftscum’s heads explode if the first female President was from our side? LOL.
I am coming out now and saying none fo these named women will be elected president in 2020.
Are there any worse women than these out there?
Yep, and it’s gotta be a Rat woman because if it’s a Republican then she must be racist. I would really like to see that, have a black conservative woman run and then win and then see the left start in with tagging her as a racist/Nazi/KKK
I’d vote for my Mom.
She’d use a little of that Wooden Spoon Diplomacy on Kim Jong Whatever.
“So, you like to threaten people. That’s not very nice. How would you like it if I threatened you with this wooden spoon? Maybe a couple of good licks would teach you to be nice to other people. (Whap! Whap! Whap!) Yeah, well you just cry about it for awhile and maybe you’ll remember to not threaten people!”
Bruce Jenner can run.
Plus hiding her penis from the media is a pain in the butt.
Had to dig for the nugget of TRUTH in all that cr@p, but here it is:
“The site offers odds of 2/1 for a Trump win, as well as odds of 8/1 for his vice president.”
10/1 for Warren.
These people are delusional!
