As Next Dem Debate Looms, Former President Obama Cautions 2020 Democratic Hopefuls, plus Manufactured Home Investing, Stock Updates

DowJones11192019ManufacturedHomeStockUpdatesSome are dropping out or are poised to exit the Democratic presidential hopeful stage. 2 newcomers are in, and rumors of potentially more entering the field persist. One poll suggests that about 1 in 4 Democrats are not satisfied with the expansive set of candidate choices they’ve had so far. Those on the right who think that this means disarray in 2020 are likely overstating their case. But when former President Barack Obama is cautioning the field, and seemingly nudging former Gov. Patrick Duvall (MA-D) to run, that too may say something for those paying attention. On a day with mixed markets, but another Nasdaq record high, a previous of tomorrow night’s Democratic debate in Atlanta will be our featured focus.

Featured Focus – Where Business, Politics, and Investing Meet


Former President Barack Obama has not been silent, but nor has he been actively involved thus far in a highly visible way during the 2020 cycle.

That may be changing.

Tomorrow night is the next Democratic debate, which is taking place in Atlanta. A local CBS affiliate filed this video report.

2020 Democrats campaign in Nevada, as Obama warns them to stay ‘rooted in reality,’ per reports by PBS News Hour.

PBS’ YouTube page said, “Fourteen contenders for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination headed to Nevada this weekend, trying to distinguish themselves in the primary season’s third-voting state. The lineup included former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick, a new entrant to the race. But as the candidates jostle for attention, the party’s debate over how best to beat Donald Trump continues.”


This poll reflects some 42 percent of Democrats are supportive of the far left wing of their party.

The 44th president’s purported promotion of Patrick for 2020, with some talk persisting of former Obama era attorney general Eric Holder and others possibly jumping in, can be construed as a vote of no-confidence in former Vice President Joe Biden.


Biden still ‘leads’ on paper, but that’s as much a vote against the left wing as reflected by Senators Elizabeth Warren (MA-D) and Bernie Sanders (VT-I).


The field is not wide open, as the campaigns of Senator Kamala Harris and former HUD Secretary Julian Castro seem to be faltering, as they are laying off staffers. By contrast, Hawaii’s Representative Tulsi Gabbard has earned her way back to the debate stage.


The next debate will begin tomorrow at 9 to 11 PM ET, on MSNBC.
