simplicimus: I like Cory Booker, but he may be too hands-on to be a good president.


He seems like a genuinely good and caring person. He wants to make the world a better place. The presidency will ruin him.

I hope so 2016 is only 3 years away. I fully expect Obama to still be president.

Obama won in 2008 because he had what it took to beat the flawed establishment candidate, Hillary Clinton, in the primaries. The Democrats are lucky he did, because Hillary would have been crushed by McCain (he wouldn't have picked Sarah Palin running against her).

The 2016 nominees will be new faces in the establishment, and neither black man mentioned above is going to be that person. We're looking at Democratic primary contenders of Mark Warner and Antonio Villaraigosa, and Republican primary contenders of Jon Huntsman and Bobby Jindal.

Black is over. But educated white males, or minority/hispanic politicians are still in.

I lost at roulette 42 spins in a row. Then on the 43rd spin I won. This clearly represents and trend and not an anomaly. I will now bet the farm on spin 44.

No, the specter of Bush was still looming over the party big time. It might've been a much closer election, but I still think Hilary would've won.


to say nothing of McCain's freak out during the economic collapse.


TFA doesn't really seem to back up its claims at all; it even trots out Condie Rice as an interested black candidate, despite her repeatedly claiming otherwise. I think Obama's presidency would make it infinitely easier for another minority and/or female candidate to become President, but I don't see any strong black candidates in the field right now. That may change between now and 2016, but I'm not the one making baseless predictions and writing an article...

Valis992000: I don't think a white male will have much of a chance from hear on out. Blacks are incredibly racist in their voting patterns, so you get almost 100% of 15% of the population by nominating a black person. Or at least you write off that much by nominating a white person if his opponent is black. If whites were as racist as blacks you would never have had a black president elected.


Quickest tagging of a troll ever.

HotWingConspiracy: If the GOP runs Tim Scott heads will explode.


I'll love seeing them argue that he has enough experience to be President when he'll have had basically the same amount of experience in government as Barack Obama when he was first elected President. The cognititve dissonance will be deafening.

Cory Booker has no shot at being president. He has too many personality quirks and they're all on display on Twitter. There's no way this country is going to elect a vegetarian.


He might make a good veep, though. Biden/Booker in '16?

doglover: Krymson Tyde: I dunno, man. Arizonans just elected a pagan atheist.

Confucian, maybe? A couple of the weirder sects of buddhism?

Pagan's just the Christian word for religions which predate the existence of Christianity in a given region (as opposed to heresies, religions invented after Christianity was around-- the two were dealt with differently with the first being more "be nice to them and bribe them until they come around" and the other being "fark it, set up the bonfire"). Atheism just denies the existence of gods, i.e. supernatural rulers. There are plenty of religions full of supernatural crap that don't have gods as such.

I know, right? Then who's Vice President? Robert Deniro? I suppose Meryl Streep is the First Lady! And Sara Jay is Secretary of the Treasury.

Whoah, whoah, wait, Doc. Who is Sara Jay?

She's a porn star, Marty. She f*cks for money. But somehow if you film it and sell the video it's not prostitution.

- If you were to go back in history and take every president, you'll find that the numerical value of each letter in their name was equally divisible into the year in which they were elected. By my calculations, our next president has to be named Yellnick McWawa.
