As the Democrat Presidential candidates sort themselves out in the next year the person to watch is Stacy Abrams. Joe Biden has already met with her to discuss "who knows what" but I wouldn't be surprised he was trying to get to know her better to determine whether she would be his ideal running mate. What Stacy brings to any Democrat ticket is what I call the "Oprah" factor. She transcends race and gender making her attractive to most demographic groups. To any of the non- minority male candidate, she brings in enthusiasm from women and African American voters that any Democrat would need to win in the general election.

The Democrats will push for expanded Medicare in their 2020 platform. The only question is how far they will go in the expansion. Just like most social advances in our Country, it will probably be an incremental approach. Something like offering Medicare to people at age 50 or 55. This will benefit both the Medicare and private insurance industry. It will get younger people into the Medicare program and older people out of the private health insurance market. That is a win/win situation for both.
