Top Ten Greatest Democratic Presidential Candidates of This Century

Dating back to 2000. Similar list for Republicans coming soon. Keep debate civil.

The Top Ten

1 Barack Obama Barack Hussein Obama II served as the 44th president of the United States of America. He was elected in 2008 after serving in the Senate from 2005-08, beating John McCain and becoming the first African-American to be elected President of the United States. He was elected again in 2012, beating Mitt more.

He wasn't my first choice personally, but it's undeniable he was the best candidate of this century. He has charisma, intelligence, some humor, likeability, a strong persona, lots of energy, looks, youthfulness and straight alpha male confidence. - marmalade_skies

Barack Obama was better than George Bush. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Are you serious? No you can't actually be serious - bobbythebrony

2 Bernie Sanders Bernard "Bernie" Sanders is an independent American Senator from Vermont and was a candidate for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2016 election.

I feel like Bernie Sanders is underrated. I wish he could be beating Hillary Clinton so the hate for the Democrats stops, but my family comes first. I am rooting for Sanders or Clinton to win to beat Trump. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

His style of populism is the future of the Democratic Party. The party has ahead an issue of being elitist, low energy and not very good at grassroots organization. - marmalade_skies

Really nice, smart, honest and a candidate who would would help millions. - techisawesome

3 Hillary Clinton Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton is an American politician who was a Democratic presidential candidate in the 2008 and 2016 elections.

Not the best candidate, but she is 1 infinity times better than Donald Trump ever will be. Bernie Sanders might be better than her, but I'd choose any Democrat over Donald Trump. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

She's not a good candidate. She's running neck to neck with a candidate whom 2/3 of the country hates. - marmalade_skies

How can a complete liar be a good candidate? - MKBeast

She stinks so much that skunks run from her - TopTenListmaker

4 Al Gore Albert Arnold "Al" Gore Jr. is an American politician and environmentalist who served as the 45th Vice President of the United States from 1993 to 2001 under President Bill Clinton.

Gore ran a very safe campaign. I wouldn't say he was an exceptional candidate in any way. If Gore had a little more energy and charisma, he could have smashed Bush. - marmalade_skies

5 John Kerry John Forbes Kerry is an American diplomat and Democratic Party politician who is the 68th and current United States Secretary of State.
6 Howard Dean
7 John Edwards
8 Wesley Clark
9 Bill Bradley

The only one worth a second look; a real shame he did not get further.

10 Joe Biden Joseph Robinette "Joe" Biden, Jr. is an American politician who was the 47th Vice President of the United States, jointly elected twice with President Barack Obama, and in office from 2009 to 2017. A member of the Democratic Party, Biden represented Delaware as a United States Senator from 1973 until more.

Who is laughing now? He could have beaten Trump easily, but the Dems were dead set on the coronation of Queen Hillary.
