Fark It: /Schweitzer/Warren/Warren/Schweitzer 2016
HMS_Blinkin: Warren as VP would be a total waste of her immense talents. She needs to either cultivate her power in the Senate, or be President.
MrBallou: aimtastic: That photo makes me want to vote for Hilary Clinton. I don't think they could have chosen a douchier looking screenshot.He looks a little like a toad, doesn't he? I hope he's running as more than just a pretty face.
Benevolent Misanthrope: If Edward Snowden is a criminal, then so are a lot of people that are working within the CIA and the NSA who have been spying illegally on American citizens. They ought to grant Snowden clemency.On "blowback" upon leaving Afghanistan: If it all goes to hell in a handbasket, that's fine. That happened after Alexander the Great left; that happened after the Russians left. Who cares? They live in the Stone Age. If you ask generals whether we should stay in a war a little longer, that's like asking a barber whether you need a haircut.Slate: when you ran in 2004, when you won the governor's race, there were gay marriage and marijuana issues on the ballot, and Republicans thought they'd set "family values" traps for you.Schweitzer: Oh, yeah, name these Republicans. The ones cheating on their third wives while they're talking about traditional family values? Those ones?What the hell ass balls - a politican who expresses an opinion? When the hell did that happen??
EyeballKid: [www.esquire.com image 300x400]I wouldn't be surprised to see a progressive Democrat with a history of cooperation with Republicans run.
Boxcutta: Great! It's the pro NRA Republican Democrat progressives have been clamoring for.
nekom: MrBallou:How old are you? They went nutballs on her when Bill was President. They've been scared shiatless of the possibility of her becoming President since she was First Lady.Our local right wing radio nut (who just recently got canned) hated her perhaps moreso than he hated Bill. Some of that crap sticks too. I STILL have a certain distaste for her, even though I couldn't tell you why. I probably agree with her on a lot of things, and would probably vote for her anyway unless the GOP fields a reasonable candidate (unlikely), but I still don't "like" her. I think it's just the decades of attacks.
p the boiler: Looks at threadCtrl+F Booker - nothingCtrl +F Patrick - nothingBetter read the article since that combo is my winning ticket
Emposter: EyeballKid: [www.esquire.com image 300x400]I wouldn't be surprised to see a progressive Democrat with a history of cooperation with Republicans run.Really? Cause I'd be surprised to see more than a few progressive Democrats in existence at all.
FriarReb98: I don't know about this whole Hilary 2016 thing. I mean, yeah, she's built herself a Presidential-sounding resume, but she has two things going against her: age and a giant-assed target on her back.It's not just that she'd be the second-oldest ever to take the oath (and the 5th oldest ever period), it's that the office ages the fark out of people, even more so when you're talking about someone who would have the added stress of being the first female president of the US. That's not exactly something that would be easy for anyone to take, let alone someone who'd be three months past 69.Now add to that by imagining just how monumentally the entire right, sexist pricks and a good chunk of the moderate left would freak the fark out if Hilary ran. Hell, as we speak there are probably people in obscure county records offices digging through records looking for dirt on her. There are entire corners of the internet with giant shrines to their hatred of her. We would easily see the dirtiest campaign in decades being run against her by everyone, possibly (but hopefully not) including the other candidates themselves.Any sane person would probably literally go on national television and radio just to literally say "fark that" to the entire idea.
CokeBear: Besides Hillary, you've got this guy (bonus, with NRA endorsement), maybe Biden and Elizabeth Warren?I'd actually be ok with any of them.
Abzzstain: Schweitzer is farking awesome. When he was governor, here's how he vetoed stupid bills from Republicans:[media.spokesman.com image 470x303]
Fark It: meat0918: I have a problem voting for her in the primary, mostly because she should have left her serial philandering husband decades ago. And I like Bill.I don't understand the "Stand by your man" mindset from her generation.You're naive if you think they had anything other than a political marriage, like the Underwoods in House of Cards.
skinnycatullus: I love that guy. I hope Clinton doesn't even run (yeah, I know, no chance of that happening). But I do not look forward to being accused of misogyny when I don't support her in the primaries. And I'm afraid the fact that I can name half a dozen OTHER women I'd be delighted to support won't shield me from those accusations.
The Stealth Hippopotamus: Doesn't the VP always get the inside track?
Radioactive Ass: The Stealth Hippopotamus: Doesn't the VP always get the inside track?Cheney in 2008 sound familiar? No?Some VP's get the inside track because that's what they came in for. Others not so much. It can be a stepping stone but more times than not it is the highest office that they will ever get to, and that office has been famously described as being lower than a warm bucket of spit.Biden isn't one of the ones who has a chance of being elected even with the VP spot bump. He just hasn't been all that involved publicly to get there.\No, Fark's attempts to buy a Trans Am do not make him viable and might actually hurt him
HeartBurnKid: You know, I like this guy. He could really shake things up.Of course, that's what I said about Obama too./he's still better than Hillary
TuteTibiImperes: I'd rather see a candidate that will speak up and say we should move to universal single payer healthcare, but otherwise his positions seem pretty good.I'm hoping Warren runs.
