Before this train leaves the station completely, am I the only one who voted gladly for Obama, but who probably would like to see something other than another Clinton?

No offense, I voted for Willie Jeff back in the day. Twice!

But a 70 year old Hillary... can't we do better?  She's had a distinguished career and all that but, can't we find a candidate that isn't the female equivalent of zombie Reagan?  Haven't we had enough of Bushes and Clintons yet?

Cuomo? Booker? Warren?

So she can look forward to more scandals and questionable money-making schemes while playing second fiddle to her womanizing husband in name only? I'm sure she's thrilled.

I think the world had enough Husseins and Osamas to last a lifetime but that didn't stop anyone, now did it?

If it weren't for the 22nd Amendment, I would happily have voted Bill Clinton for a third term.

She's not going to run. Get over it, news media, it's gone.

Will she claim her second term as First Lady as elected experience, like she did during the 2008 primary?

There is no way on Earth I'd vote for Hillary. She'd be 69 by the time she was sworn in and look at the toll 4 years as SecState put on her. I'm not voting for someone who is going to kick the bucket halfway through her term. Hillary had her shot, didn't make it, but did a good job as SecState and can hang her legacy on that.

I had the same issue with McCain in 2008. I was nervous about his age, when he set it up so that Palin would replace him that lead to a giant fark no from me.

/I'd vote Bubba in for a 3rd term if he was younger, that's the only Clinton I'd vote for
//look at the pictures of Bush or Clinton aging while in office, I have a hard time believing that either Clinton could survive 4 years in the White House

I have no doubt that Hillary would have made a fine President, but her health concerns me in the same way that Reagan's did and McCain's did.

I truly think the Presidency would kill her.

This

I don't understand why the media is craving this so badly. This isn't going to happen no matter how much you want to sleep with her

There is no comparison to the number of Bushes and Clintons in our government. It reeks of 'Both sides are bad.'

So would have everyone. it was awesome. we were feeling good about ourselves, the economy was rocking along, we were pretty much at peace, and the new options were boring mcboring, and a bush.

Somehow, I don't think Hillary was that happy when Bill was in the White House.

1. What does her last name and age matter if you agree with her platform and think she'd be an effective leader?

2. Concerns over age are completely overblown. Many of the most effective politicians have been quite old. Arguably the greatest Speaker of the House, Sam Rayburn, served until he died at 79 -- I imagine Clinton is in way better health now than Rayburn was when he was 50. Some current old age Democratic Senators doing good work: Carl Levin (78), Tom Harkin (73), Bernie Sanders (71 -- yes, I know he's an Independent).

Let's also look at the Supreme Court. Oliver Wendell Holmes served until he was 91, Louis Brandeis 81, John Paul Stevens 90, William Brennan 84, Hugo Black 85.

Yeah, let's keep it up with the American royalty. It worked out so well with the Kennedys.
