Hard to believe the people she lied to, quit on and repeatedly embarrassed on a national level don't like her anymore.

King Something: So Hillary Clinton isn't leading against some potential GOP candidates in polls 39 months away from the next presidential election, and the polls in question are of the people living in the world's fourth-largest expanse of open tundra.

Meanwhile, in the parts of  the country where the population is a bit higher than "rounding error," those GOP candidates, and the GOP itself for that matter, have a popularity rating of somewhere between "broccoli" and "cabbage."


I'd also point out that the candidate that does the best in this poll doesn't have a chance in hell of getting through the primaries.  The teabaggers will never forgive Chris Christie for working with President Obama after his state suffered a disaster, and he's been taking on their hero RAND PAUL lately.

Monkeyhouse Zendo: Tman144: Don't get me wrong. I still like Obama as a person, I just don't think he's been a very effective president. My regret is not in voting for Obama in the general. My regret is in not voting for Hillary in the primary.

You honestly think that Hillary would have been better able to work with the congressional Republicans? That's a fascinating assertion, I'd love to hear your reasoning on that.


I don't think Hillary would "work" with congressional republicans at all, I said she would have been more effective. Obama has given concession after concession to republicans and gotten exactly jack shiat in return, whereas I think Hillary would have been playing hardball right out of the gate. There was a lot of wasted opportunity during the first two years of Obama's presidency. Oh well, live and learn I guess.

Esc7: Hillary's myth of inevitability will be her undoing.

Today's electorate has been too manipulated for novelty and sensationalism to accept a Reagan - Bush style succession.

Politicians have become more like characters in a drama and people will be bored with Hillary.


Yes - No - Sort of

2008
Hillary lost in 2008 because she thought she was a sure thing. She was in coast mode, worrying only about swing states. Candidate Obama's 50 state, grass roots, small dollar donation, internet campaign caught both her and the GOP unprepared.
She thought she was inevitable.

2016
We have a different ball game. Currently there is no Democrat other than Hillary on the Stage.
Biden? Does he want the job? How old will he be? Will he really want to RUN?

The Electorate
The electorate is bored/tired? LOL
GOP voters will never vote a DEM.
DEM voters will never vote for a GOP.
Either way, the election will be close, with the winner going to whomever gets out the vote.
Especially the minority and female vote.

Wildcard
The real wildcard is not even on the table yet. Either part could produce an unexpected, charismatic candidate. Reagan, Bill Clinton and Barak Obama were just that kind of candidate.

Guess
My guess is that Hillary would win against the current suite of GOP contenders and leftovers from 2012.

Worst Nightmare - 2016
The economy has recovered. The moron electorates have forgotten the Bush Years and the Obama Recovery and vote for more spending and less taxes and we get yet another insane tax cut-and-spend GOP president.

Vectron: If Hillary gets elected, make sure she has Life Alert in the oval office.

In 2016 she'll still be younger than McCain was in 2008.  And younger than Reagan was in 1980.

Having traveled to Alaska many times and with numerous friends there, I can say confidently that most Alaskans hate Palin. They see her as a sell-out and supreme narcissist and giving their state a bad name. She has very low support even around Palmer and Wasilla (where she lives). She is basically reviled in Anchorage and up and down the Kenai peninsula.

To me the key difference is that Hillary is a cold-blooded killer who would have taken the fight to the GOP more aggressively than has Obama.

That said, I campaigned for and vote for Hillary in '08, and will do so again for '16, and I think she will be a better next president than had she been elected in '08.

tenpoundsofcheese: keylock71: Pick: Trying to wrap my head around the idea that ANYONE would vote for Hillary in any kind of election. After her performance at the Benghazi hearings, what kind of moron would vote for such a loose cannon?

Awwww, still trying to beat that dead horse, huh?

That fact that you referred to our Ambassador and the three other people who died that night as horses is terrible.


Exactly! Don't people know the proper way to honor them is to use them as political props to try and score points against the other party!

Tman144: While it's probably a pipe dream because of a fear that Americans wouldn't vote for two women, but I'd love to see a Clinton/Warren ticket.  Hillary handling foreign affairs and social policy issues while Warren is the point on economic issues could be an amazing thing.  The Republicans wouldn't know what to do, as Warren's anti-big business crusading would win over the Tea Party to a degree and undercut the leadership.

HAHAHA-you're-serious.jpg

/never going to happen


Indeed... She's everything the Teabaggers hate - an intelligent, progressive woman, who speaks her mind and uses these strange things called "facts" when making her points. She's also not an unhinged hypocrite, so that pretty much makes her unfit for the Tea Party.

Sure, the thing this country needs most is President Elizabeth Warren.  A healthy dose of Louis Brandeis crossed with some Rooseveltian trust-busting?  YES, PLEASE!

Yes according to the liberal mainstream msm media's polls. But according to the unskewed Real AmericanTM polls, Sarah Palin is already POTUS and the eastern coast of Siberia is now the 51st state of the U.S. called Palinburg.

and RAND PAUL doesn't have a chance of getting elected. like his dad he is just too kooky. folks may like his stand on this or that but in toto he doesn't measure up. and a primary battle between him and ted cruz would damage both of them.


Just like his dad, he has that rare 1% stance that actually would greatly help the country. The problem is that it also comes with 99% much worse stances.

If Hillary Clinton wants to run and win, she needs to prove during the primaries that she deserves the nomination and not just that she's next in line and is entitled to it. Obama proved that Democrats and lazy Democrats will come out to vote if you excite them. Granted it will be more difficult this time around, since Obama took all of that political energy and squandered it enacting Republican policies from the nineties, being too pragmatic in the age of ideology, and being hamstrung at every turn by the most obstructionist congressional minority in history.

Democrats can energize the electorate, but it's going to be more difficult since Obama already played the greatest hits during his campaign, and we saw how that turned out. I guess we can hope that Republicans become even more insane (less hope and more expect, really) in the following years, but Romney proved that voting for the lesser of two evils isn't a sure bet.
