The Next Black President - Five Black (Potential) Candidates Who Could Follow Obama Into The White House

Could another African American follow Obama into the White House in 2016? Contrary to popular belief in political circles, the Democratic Party does have a deep bench of potential presidential candidates (not named Hillary) who could indeed follow President Obama into the the White House in January 2017. (Sorry Ben Carson we suspect that you will be Herman Cain-ed before the end of the Republican primaries). These potential candidates include several African American candidates though none have announced or even indicated they would be interested in running for President. But it is fun to speculate. So lets!. There is no reason why these potential candidates could not tap into the base and resources that got President Obama elected twice.

Sen. Corey Booker. Most of the talk in political circles has been the prospect of Senator Elizabeth Warren challenging Hillary for the nomination. Sen. Warren has repeatedly denied wanting to run for President and is quite busy in a war with the White House over trade. The other democratic star in the Senate is Cory Booker, a bonafide superhero See Here How many senators have rescued people from a burning house or a freezing dog and See Here Too If he chose to run or if Hillary had an epic fail. He certainly has the intelligence (Rhodes scholar, Yale law), charisma and it factor to make it to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. At a minimum he would be a strong pick to be part of a Clinton ticket.

Gov. Deval Patrick. The former Governor of Massachusetts and friend of President Obama has previously stated that he is not interested in running for President. But, again what if Hillary has an epic fail. Gov. Patrick has the political chops, and executive leadership skills to be a formidable opponent to any of the dozens of GOP candidates. He too is a gifted orator and would appear stately and presidential on the world stage. CONTINUE TO SEE WHO IS NEXT!
