16. I don't think so. He would be far and away above the crowd, if he were to join in now.

Not all view the crowded field favorably.

He can't run, now. He's needed in the House. The timing is bad for him to run in the future. Assuming Dems win in 2020, that locks in that President 2020-2028. Then a Republican will likely win, which is 2028-2036. That makes Schiff 75 at that time. Technically not too old, but in reality, it would be an issue. Also, after that many years in the House (assuming he even wins all those future years and is still in the House), he would have a looooong record to attack. That's one reason Senators and House reps with long records rarely have won the Presidency (if ever).

But it's possible he'd turn into a Biden. Schiff in 2036 would be similar to Biden now
