That's a waste of money and effort. She is not going to run .

If she changes from a Republican to a Democrat, possibly.

Reading down the list of headlines, I took away the following three words. Hillary, Christie, Santorum. Think about that.
 
2013-01-29 11:14:02 AM  
She was awful during the 2008 campaign, but has done a magnificent job since then. I'd vote for her with no reservations now.

That said, I doubt that she's going to run.

You've got to be joking. She's got more testosterone than Lance Armstrong during his Tour years. She thrives on competition.

Argh. Its still four years away. We only just got finished with the last bullshiatathon. And you're getting wound up to do it again?? You people are sick in the head, even leaving aside your choice of candidate.
 
2013-01-29 11:17:16 AM  
If Hillary Clinton decides to run in 2016 the GOP might as well start preparing a strategy for 2024 and play the long game until then

Of course, I am being generous in assuming they can come up with a strategy when they can barely tie their own shoes.

There are political junkies in our midst.  People obsessed with American politics.  Some are not even from the US.  farking weirdos.

Anyways, does anyone have any polling data, my hand's shaking?

She strong-armed Obama into giving her SoS (her camp leaked that he wanted her). That was a power move.

You have an over-inflated sense of Hillary Clinton's political clout. FWIW, the last 5 years have been the best 5 years she has ever had in office. Period. They have also been the hardest.

Her health is declining, she has publicly stated, repeatedly, that she isn't interested in running again.

She has nearly a decade of service left in her career, but it's not going to involve campaigning.

If you remember this, remind me, I'll give you a month of TF if she even forms an exploratory committee within a year of the democratic primary, which begins February 2, 2016.

Sure, she's really attractive right at the moment if you're watching the polls, but throw her back in the competition and that goodwill will just drain right out. The only way I see her dragging her shiat back out for a primary run in 2016 is if there is seriously *no* competition. If she's already the presumptive nominee, *maybe* she runs.

My guess is her health is fine for her age. Besides, Reagan had Alzheimer's for the last six years of his Presidency and look how much the GOP loves him.

Wouldn't be against it, necessarily. Like I've said numerous times in this thread, I'm not sure I'd ever vote for her (never have before).

I don't see Hilary being much different than Obama. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but I'd prefer someone that actually leans to the left, is heavy on science/education, wants to end the war on drugs, wants financial reform and labor rights with teeth, and will expand Obamacare to a single payer/medicare for all system. Basically a teabaggers worst nightmare.

So someone that wouldn't get elected? National level politics doesn't work that way. Hilary has some major advantages for Democrats, even if she is center-left and even center-right at times.

That's not necessarily true. Depends what kind of crazy the Republican nominee is, and the country is shifting to the left anyways. Maybe not that far yet, but I could see a candidate running on that platform within 20yrs.

The most recent U.S. president to have previously served as a Cabinet member is Herbert Hoover.

So, in that respect, history's not on Hillary's side.

If Hillary runs, she wins. If she picks the right, i.e. electable in his own right, VP candidate, he wins 8 years of his own after her. Combine that with basic demographics and the GOP is toast.
 
2013-01-29 12:35:02 PM  
People are pushing for Hilary now because the Democratic field looks so sparse. And it should, because it's 2013.
 
2013-01-29 12:36:58 PM  
That would be the final fusing of the Hope Ark and Cook County criminal political gangs.

What does it matter, she won't run.
