I'm against dynasties as a rule of thumb.  But, if the American people are so stoopid as to vote in one, I'd rather it be a Clinton than a Bush.

You notice how the GOP is not for anything just against things?

I'm beginning to think the real ideological basis of the republican party is encapsulated in the phrase "A fool and his money are soon parted."

Dog Welder: It must be exhausting to be this fearful and paranoid all the time.


They save energy by riding around in hover rounds instead of walking.  It is the only way to maintain the envy to rage.

stevie1der: I don't want to be labeled as a concern troll, but I'm wary of Hillary as the nominee.  Hear me out.  One of the reasons the Democrats have enjoyed such success in recent national elections is their advantage in voter enthusiasm over Republican voters.  I do beleive Hillary Clinton as a nominee could rally the Republican base in a way that milquetoast candidates like McCain and Romney couldn't.  I'm not saying the Republicans have anything concrete to use against her or that she's guaranteed to fail, there's just some sort of visceral Pavlovian response to the word Clinton that may bring a crumbling conservative voting sect back into lock step.


sure - sort of - maybe - not really
You would think that having a BLACK guy running the last two elections would have had a bigger impact, right?
Not enough, not even close.

The real problem is demographics. Those same clinton hating wack jobs have been dying off. Clinton will have been out of the whitehouse for 16 years.

Add in that the opposite side of the electorate LOVES clinton.

I honestly think the "anti-Clinton vitriol" is overstated and over-estimated.  Most of the anti-Clinton vitriol on the right has been replaced by anti-Obama vitriol, and what's left of it isn't as fresh and powerful as it once was.

The Clinton administration was a long time ago.  A lot of time has passed, filled mostly with the disastrous Bush years, that I think most people look back now and recognize that the Clinton years were pretty damned good for America.

I don't want to live with an internet that tries to make visual jokes out of that combination of names.

BS not enough suffering and crying children in that last one. Wherever Santorum passes children cry.


What's funny is that I can't see the Santorum picture at work... probably a good thing.

Also, for those people who think Hilary running means a Republican winning, you're nuts. The reason why she's being targeted as the next candidate is because she's going to be pushed that way, and the R's will be freaking out instead of putting a sane* candidate to properly debate against her. If she runs, she wins.

*that is to say, if they had any sane people who would call themselves Republican presidential nominees

InmanRoshi: You mean the woman with the 50+ approval rating despite having spent the last 20 years in political crosshairs having every allegation and trumped up "scandal" thrown against her. The woman who recently polled steamrolled every potential GOP candidate except for Christie, who she merely had a sizeable lead over.


He sounds concerned, doesn't he?

dionysusaur: Hillary is the one candidate the D's could run that would guarantee wharever fool winds up in the R slot wins. The reanimated corpse of Ted Kennedy would do better. This makes me sad, as Hill has as close to a lock on that candidacy as on can have without Rove Emmanuel at the levers.

If Hillary is the Dem nominee, she'll win.

I'm more confident about that now than I was in 2007-08.

Ted_Crisp: Aarontology: I kind of hope she does get the nomination for the sole reason of seeing just how disgustingly misogynistic the GOP can really get.

They can go further?


Well, they turned the racism up to 11* when Obama was elected, so I am sure they will do the same thing for misogyny if/when Hillary is back in the White House.

/ 11 for Republicans. eighty bajillion for the sane world.
