randomjsa: Only a Democrat could testify like she did on Benghazi and remain popular.

Has to be said, again, and ad nauseam until the election...

HILLARY CANNOT WIN IN 2016. SHE WILL BE TOO OLD. SHE HAS TOO MUCH BAGGAGE.

She was a great Secretary of State. She'll make a great Senator from Illnois, or a decent Supreme Court Justice. But she is not the right Democrat for 2016. Start looking for real alternatives.

I have to figure Republicans have something rich on Hillary. Did you see how quick they were to push backing her over Obama in 2008? Did you see how hard they were pushing the idea that Obama should totally take Biden off the ticket and add Hillary as a running mate in 2012?

Even if they didn't, prepare to hear "what difference at this point does it make" to be repeated out of context for 8 months straight as shorthand for "Hillary doesn't care about dead Americans."

Hillbilly Jim:

What in the blue hell has prepared her for SCOTUS seat?

Pretty much everything she has done.  There is no need to be a judge to be appointed to the Supreme Court.

Stone Meadow: If you want to piss off a Santorum fan, ask them to name an accomplishment of his. Shuts them right up.


An incumbent Senator losing re-election by 19% of the vote is a pretty amazing accomplishment.

Supes: Honestly I think Rubio eeks out the 2016 GOP nomination


I don't think he's going to make it.  I don't think he's ready for primetime, he's going to get outflanked on the right on immigration and ... honestly .... I just don't think he's that talented of a politician.

As hilarious as it have seemed to me just a few months ago,  I  think Rand Paul is going to be the favorite.  I know judging by my facebook from the derpers I went to high school with  in Texas he's the the "true conservative" darling at the moment.   He's a bit like Dubya ....  He can get the TeaParty and the Club for Growth money behind him, given that he can both social DERP and preach massive deregulation simultaneously.      Of course, he also doesn't believe in Civil Rights Laws and he's just going to exacerbate the growing demo/messaging problem the GOP have, but I really believe the GOP are going to have to hit a rock bottom in 2016 just like the Democrats hit in 1988 with Dukakis.  Right now they think they're in their position just because there is too much  Cult of Personality around Obama, not because their policies are just really that repugnant to most American people.   They're going to need a wakeup call to snap out of it, and that will probably have to be a "true conservative" getting steamrolled by 150+ EVs.

Huggermugger: Cheron: TuteTibiImperes: I like Christie, and I agree that if I were going to vote for a republican he seems like one of the best options (still like Jon Huntsman too).

Of course, it won't really matter in the end.  The next election is Hillary's in a landslide as long as she doesn't do something monumentally boneheaded.  Hopefully putting Hillary in office would put Bill into an even more active position.

neither stands a chance with hardcore Republicans that vote in primaries

Since when do Teatards vote in Democratic primaries?


I had to read it a couple times too, but I think "neither" refers to Christie and Huntsman, not Christie and Clinton.

I've been saying since Obama won the election that the next president will be the winner of the Democratic primary. The general won't even matter.

Why? Simple, no electable Republican can survive the Republican primary. And it's not even close. The process seems designed to produce candidates that are so to the right of the general public, that Democrats could run the exhumed corpse of Chavez as their presidential candidate, and people would still vote for the him over what the Republicans are running.

EighthDay: Supes: Honestly I think Rubio eeks out the 2016 GOP nomination. He has the whole Latino thing working against him of course, but the GOP has been gung-ho about trying to salvage some segment of the Latino vote, and they perceive this as the best way. He'll have a tough time getting states in the deep south, but will do great elsewhere.  Christie is just not crazy enough to win the primaries.

As for the Democrat entry, despite all the speculation I'm not sure Hillary will even seek it. Blasphemy, I know, but I think 2008 took a lot out of her. She seems to prefer operating in a little smaller spotlight. Joe Biden WILL seek it out, but I don't think he'll win. After a hard-fought campaign, I think Mark Warner will emerge as the candidate, with a woman (Gillibrand? Klobuchar?) as his VP choice.

Warner vs. Rubio in 2016 would be a fun battle.

I had to look up Warner, because I honestly know nothing about the man.

Checked out where he stands on actual policies, thinking he was just another conservative Democrat from VA...

And ended up liking most of what I saw.  He's still far too much of an authoritarian for me, but on economics and most social policy, I either don't disagree or only mildly disagree.

Not bad, assuming the guy has the charisma and gravitas for the campaign (again, I know nothing about the man, so he may.)


I agree, he doesn't look bad.  I've been a big fan of this guy for a couple years though:

He's also very technology-literate, which will be even more vitally important in the coming years.

Yeah, the GOP has several warehouses full of material that went unused after Obama stole the show in 2008.

Of course they want her to run.
