You mean he went back in time and shoved Hilary Clinton?

Shadow Blasko: This is not a good week to be in politics... but I can't help but think of what a fantastic episode of The West Wing it would make.

20 hours in America style. Fiscal Cliff, a senseless massacre of students, middle east issues, Japanese right wing dominance, North Korean sabre rattling...


Fiscal cliff, children death, North Korea and Japan. Clinton, Boehner, Bartlett, just raise the farking debt. We didn't start the fire. It was always burning since the world was turning.

/The West Wing and Billy Joel for 200 Alex.

mitchcumstein1: EuphoniumEuphoria: Well, there goes her Presidency.

I can see the attack ads now:

"Hillary Clinton says she will be a strong leader..."

Hillary: "I will be a strong leader."

"Hillary says that she can handle the stresses of the Presidency..."

Hillary: "I can handle the stresses of the Presidency."

"But in 2012, Hillary Clinton FAINTED."

Hillary: Faints

"Do we really want such a weak woman leading our Nation? "

Some doofus old white guy shows up "I am McOldracistwhiteguy, and I approve this message."

I think being damned near 70 will be a bigger problem. I wouldn't vote for a 70 year old person to be President of the United States. No way, no how.


Reagan was 69 when he took office. And I'd say he was a little bit more 'off' than Clinton is/ ever will be.

lenfromak: Congressional aides do not expect her to testify as scheduled at congressional hearings on Thursday into the Sept. 11 attack against a U.S. diplomatic outpost in Benghazi, Libya, that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador.

Isn't that conveeeeenient?

Great now my fantasy line up is farked.
 
2012-12-15 01:34:05 PM
So they're going to replace Hillary with someone who's older than her? I didn't realize until now that John Kerry is 69. Kerry really needs to keep his Senate seat so that Scott Brown doesn't make it back to Congress, and Obama should find a different candidate.

cptjeff: dalovindj: AcneVulgaris: I have a feeling she'd kick your ass when she came too if you tittered about it.

That woman SCARES me.

Honestly, fark her. She ran a despicable campaign in 2008 and I've never really respected her since. I want Warren in 2016, and I doubt she would run if Hillary did. But a Hillary vs. Warren primary would be almost as much fun as the Judd vs. McConnell battle is going to be.

But the more likely scenario is that this makes her unelectable, so Warren can hop right in without offending Democrat royalty.

Huh? Being sick makes you unelectable? Now, she probably should have been resting and drinking lots of fluids, but working too hard isn't usually disqualifying for much of anything.

I'd love to see Warren as President, but I'm be nervous about how electable she is nationally. If the environment in 2016 looks like she could actually win, I'd vote for her in a heartbeat. If not, I'll probably wind up voting for Hillary. I really do think she learned a lot from 2008 and that it changed her, and she's done a kickass job at State.

This is, of course, entirely premature, things may change a lot by 2016.


In 2008 we learned that Blue Team wasn't stupid enough to run an unelectable candidate because it was "her turn."

In 2012 we confirmed that Red Team was. Though they did try really hard to find someone else.

Honest Bender: Is this really News Flash worthy?


Seeing as she's apparently been ill for the last week or so, yes.

She hasn't really looked good (as in quite ill) for the last year or so

.

SithLord: Maybe all that lying about Benghazi exhausted her supply of hot air.


No hate like Republican hate. She's the new Ted Kennedy. A reliable whipping post.

In other words: fark you.

Huh? What the fark makes you think that? If Hillary won the Democratic nomination, she would be President right now. She wasn't unelectable by any stretch of the imagination- it would have been very hard for ANY Democrat to lose that election.

dalovindj: There goes her shot at the presidency. Can we really afford a leader who faints at the first sign of trouble?


She's already said she isn't running. Which, given her age, is entirely understandable.

She's 65 now, so if she ran she'd be 69 in the next election and 73 at the end of her first term, making her one of the 4 oldest presidents at election.

This might be the most derp filled statement I've read on Fark this year, and I'm not even a Republican. Hillary polarized people just as badly as W ever did, the idea that she was electable is pure hyperbole.

Yeah, I heard that too. Yet polling firms are reporting she would win if the election were held today and dramatic tv series are riffing on the coyness of her position (hot, political Sigourney Weaver ftw) . It keeps getting brought up in the national discussion, and of course she thinks about it. But she is forever unclean and can never win. So this fainting deal likely kills any tendencies she might have to try and convince herself that the media's insistence she could win has any connection to reality.

There is a plus side to Benghazi: after a decade, two wars,and a trillion plus dollars fighting terrorism, conservatives have finally cared that someone one died.
