At the time of writing, we have 23 Democratic presidential candidates who want to unseat President Donald Trump. Now… name five of them.
How’d you do? Did you struggle like most Americans?
Of those you did name, let me guess the ones you got right. You got Bernie Sanders and Joe Biden.

Third on your list is probably Elizabeth Warren, although you may know her best for her American Indian claim that backfired.
After that, the mind wanders. There’s Mayor Pete and Kamala, although you just can’t quite remember their last names of Buttigieg and Harris, respectively. Of course, if you are a political junkie or live in a state where one of the 23 Democratic presidential candidates grew up or now resides, you probably faired a little better.
