ikanreed: I'm not voting for Hillary '16 for the same reason I didn't vote Hillary '08, we live in a society of 300 million people, only a couple dozen of whom are blood relatives of a previous president.
SisterMaryElephant: She might be getting past her fark-by date, and it appears that's all that matters to the GOP. Not that Hillary was ever in a prime fark-me state, but you get the point.
ShadowKamui: Uh she did a terrible job as SoS
Lenny_da_Hog: Apik0r0s: Whoever the Democrats do nominate, it needs to be a minority again. It brings out the best in the GOP, in front of everyone.Nominate a liberal Jew. That would make the evangelicals' heads explode.
doloresonthedottedline: Was Obama also too right wing? Because in that election he never really committed to left win policy positions while she did./would love a really liberal president but it ain't happenin//also, the first female leaders usually have to be pretty conservative, and Hillary looks great when you consider that
blasterz: super_grass: Remember when they used the same smear against McCain?Yep. Chuck Norris said he was too old.//of course so did many liberal media outlets
James!: The last time we elected a 69 year old it was Ronald Reagan and he went senile in office.
TheWhoppah: IF Wendy Davis is elected in Texas... and that is a huge IF at this point... but IF she can pull it off and deliver TX on the national ticket then the GOP is toast. Also Cruz couldn't resign from Senate to run for president if a Dem is picking his interim replacement. You can dream.
Highroller48: Wishful Thinking is cute.Considering the likely slate of Republiderp potential candidates, the Dems could put up GEORGE Clinton and still win 300 electoral votes.Seriously, the House and Senate Republicans can't even get on the same page as each other over their core issues. How in the world are they going to prop up a united front? It wouldn't even surprise me to see 2 Republican candidates splitting the vote. One for the RNC and one for the Tea Party.If Hillary is the nominee, she will win. If that happens we can look forward to at least another 4 more years of the comedy gold that is Tea Party butthurt.Just watching Glenn Beck cry and Karl Rove have another reality-meltdown on election night would be worth all the campaign BS.Orly Taitz launching her "Women Can't Be President" lawsuits will be the icing on the cake.
Trey Le Parc: BMulligan: James!: The last time we elected a 69 year old it was Ronald Reagan and he went senile in office.Women generally age better than men, in terms of health. I'm not a big Hillary fan, but I don't think her age is a significant issue. Also, fark the Moonies.Men age like wine. Women age like milk.
ShadowKamui: Failed dialog w/ Russia, no resolution to Iran or NK, cluster-f*ck of Egypt all started under her watch. You're just blaming Kerry for at worse continuing all her screw ups
Geotpf: OtherBrotherDarryl: I don't think the Dems would win if she got the nomination. IF she got the nomination...she messed that one up bad in 2008.Much to my surprise, she did an excellent job as Secretary of State-much better than her replacement is currently doing.However, her age is a large issue, IMHO. I think she is simply too old at this point. 2008 was basically her only shot, and she probably blew that chance way back in 2002 when she voted for the Iraq war in the Senate.
odinsposse: I don't really want Hilary. She's far too right wing for me. I will take her over absolutely any Republican out there but I won't like it and I'll likely vote against her in a primary unless her opponents are the liberal equivalent of the GOP's 2012 clowncar.I also think with Bill and Obama campaigning for whoever gets nominated in 2016 that the Democrats is pretty much a lock. So, again, I'd prefer it if the eventual candidate was someone who could shift the country farther left.
aaronx: Lord Dimwit: It's looking like it's going to be Cory BookerOh, dear, I hope not.
OtherBrotherDarryl: I don't think the Dems would win if she got the nomination. IF she got the nomination...she messed that one up bad in 2008.

Blues_X: The conservatives keep bringing this up, out of fear.
