The Democratic National Committee recently released a tentative 2020 debate plan, and Pat highlighted it on Wednesday's episode of "Pat Gray Unleashed."
The Democratic Party's primary debates are scheduled to begin less than one year from now in late 2019. Democrats are trying to come up with a plan to include a potential field of 30 or 40 candidates on stage at the same time.
Why crowd the stage?
"Well, we can't have some of them not included; we can't do what the Republicans did with the kiddie table. We're not going to do that. So we'll have 45 people up there and give them 17 seconds each," Pat mocked.
Tom Perez, the current DNC chair, has made it clear that he wants a solid mix of "top tier" candidates with lesser-known candidates. The plan would take into account other considerations, including the candidate's staff members, fundraising numbers, office locations and overall legitimacy.
Interim Democratic National Committee CEO Mary Beth Cahill said that many good people are running or are considering running, but Pat disagreed and attempted to formulate a list of viable Democrat candidates. His list of two included Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) and former Sen. Joe Biden (D-Del.).
Joe Biden says ...
According to a Fox News report, while on his "American Promise' tour, Joe Biden told a crowd of Montanans that he thinks he is the "most qualified person in the country to be president."
Pat chuckled, calling Biden "Middle Class Joe" because of the absurdity of Biden's claim of understanding the plight of the middle class.
Pat speculated that Biden honestly believes he can beat Trump in 2020, adding that Biden appears to regret not running for president in 2016.
What about Beto O'Rourke?
According to Fox News, O':Rourke spoke at a town hall meeting in El Paso, Texas, stating that he is "considering a presidential bid in 2020."
