A 2016 Presidential Prediction


Even if he doesn't throw in for the top slot, Jerry Brown will be on the Democratic Party's short list for a cabinet position, quite possibly veep.

Lots of people like to joke about "Governor Moonbeam" and his previous presidential campaigns, and yes, he will be pushing 80 years old as of inauguration day, but let's have a look at the ol' resume:


  • About to start his fourth (non-consecutive term) as governor of the most populous and highest-GDP state in the US;
  • One term as Secretary of State of the most populous and highest-GDP state in the US;
  • One term as Attorney General of the most populous and highest-GDP state in the US;
  • Two terms as mayor of the 8th largest city in the most populous and highest-GDP state in the US (47th largest city in the US as a whole).
Thought I'd get that one in early, before everyone's saying it.
