 Presumptive 2016 Democratic Presidential Nominee
 

2016 Democratic Presidential Nominee
Former U.S. Secretary of State, U.S. Senator and First Lady
Democratic Candidate 2016 Hillary Clinton
    (age 68)
Hillary Clintons’ entry into the 2016 presidential election was never in doubt. While her defeat to President Obama in the 2008 nomination race is a distant memory now, her subsequent gracious and powerful endorsement speech lingers in the minds of many. With her extensive frontline and behind-the-scenes political experience, Secretary Clinton has virtually, and quite comfortably, sealed her status as the presidential nominee for the Democratic Party.

2016 Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee
Current U.S. Senator and former Governor from Virginia
Democratic Vice-Presidential Nominee Tim Kaine
    (age 58)
The former Jesuit missionary, law professor and attorney once won a record $100 million judgement against an insurance company for discriminatory lending practices. Despite his successful private practice, the call of public service ultimately proved to be too strong for Sen. Kaine, and he was elected to serve as the Mayor of Richmond in 1998. The father of three would go on to serve as the Lt. Governor of Virginia and Governor of Virginia. Today, Sen. Kaine serves in the U.S. Senate and sits on four committees.

 Withdrawn 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidates 
 
Withdrawn 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Former Governor of Maryland
Democratic Candidate 2016Martin O'Malley
    (age 53)

His successful progressive governorship of Maryland has elevated the moderate Democrat into one of the rising stars of the party, and inevitably, there were high expectations surrounding his candidacy. However, Gov. O’Malley struggled to impose himself in the polls despite attracting a slew of endorsements, and rarely breached the 10% mark. The former Mayor of Baltimore finally announced the suspension of his campaign after an underwhelming performance in the opening caucus in Iowa, where he finished third with less than 1% of the votes.

Withdrawn 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Professor of Law
Democratic Presidential Candidate Larry Lessig
    (age 55)

Respected Harvard law professor and co-founder of the revolutionary Creative Commons licensing system, Larry Lessig, announced his candidacy for the Democratic primaries on September 6, 2015 after his exploratory committee successfully raised over a million dollars in just 30 days. Mr. Lessig, who received high-profile celebrity endorsements from the likes of Star Wars director J. J. Abrams and Wikipedia founder Jimmy Wales, suspended his campaign less than two months later after accusing the Democratic National Committee of actively marginalizing his campaign.

Withdrawn 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Former U.S. Senator and Governor from Rhode Island
Democratic Presidential Candidate 2016Lincoln Chafee
    (age 63)

Mr. Chafee entered the Democratic nomination race with a unique tripartisan appeal – he was elected to the Senate as a Republican, won the Rhode Island governorship as an Independent, and served as the co-chair of President Barack Obama's 2012 reelection campaign. However, he never gained a foothold in the contest, and following a widely panned performance in the first Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas, announced the suspension of his campaign on October 23, 2015.

Withdrawn 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Veteran, author, former Senator from Virginia and bi-partisan lawmaker
Democratic Presidential CandidateJim Webb
    (age 70)

The highly-decorated Vietnam vet has a very interesting and eclectic resume. He has served as, at various times, a U.S. Senator, an Emmy-winning journalist, an official of the Reagan administration, and a Marine – and he is also a best-selling author. Nevertheless, the Republican-turned-Democrat failed to translate his wide experience into support, and was excluded from the majority of polls. Despite a respectable performance in the first Democratic presidential debate in Nevada on October 13, 2015, Sen. Webb withdrew from the race a week later. Since then, Sen. Webb has announced that he will not be voting for Hillary Clinton in the presidential election and has not rule out voting for Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Withdrawn 2016 Democratic Presidential Candidate
Junior U.S. Senator from Vermont and Former Mayor of Burlington
2016 Democratic Presidential CandidateBernie Sanders
    (age 75)

Despite his status as an independent, the self-professed democratic socialist was granted special dispensation by the Democratic National Committee to participate in the primaries in recognition of his solidarity with the Democrats in Congressional voting. Unexpectedly though, Sen. Sanders managed to draw in the support of the most liberal elements in the party and has emerged as the strongest opponent to Hillary Clinton. However, his refusal to withdraw from the race despite a very low chance of winning and an aggressive anti-Hillary campaign is beginning to draw criticisms from some quarters.

The 2016 Presidential Election is unlike any seen in recent times. In fact, it may well be the most important since 1860, for one very simple reason. The 45th President could potentially be selecting up to four new Supreme Court Justices to replace the aging Ruth Bader Ginsburg (82), Anthony Kennedy (79), Stephen Breyer (77) and recently deceased Antonin Scalia - almost half of the nine-person lineup of the United States Supreme Court. With a historical 25-year average tenure, these lifetime appointments will directly determine the political, ideological and socioeconomic direction of the country for the next three decades, and indirectly thereafter.
