whidbey: qorkfiend: whidbey: Yep. It's still pretty depressing realizing that Hillary's going to run, but the shiatstorm of derp will at least bring a sense of superiority.

From her perspective, there's really no reason not to run. She's experienced (both in government and at campaigning), well-known, somewhat popular, long list of contacts, lots of favors to call in...

I'm not sure I can get behind her vision, nor am I sure she's a capable leader.

I might go totally rogue if she runs at this point, honestly.


Why? What is so awful about Hillary Clinton that you would essentially abandon the entire Democratic party platform over it?

I'm assuming you're a Democrat precisely because you're unsure.

I campaigned for Jerry Brown back in 1992. In Texas.Yeah, that was pointless. Still like him a lot, but has anyone mentioned his age?

Cheron: I am Governor Jerry Brown
My aura smiles
And never frowns
Soon I will be president...


Came to say this.

So now I've come for your uncool niece.

There is a Brown I'd like to see run in 2016, Sherrod Brown.

There's a cheaper and faster way to settle this: aluminum walkers at five paces (the two of them might not survive covering the ground required by twenty).

Can someone explain to me why we insist on running geriatrics for the highest office in the nation?

They're saner than the crazies and crooks on the other side?

/Seriously, if an independent or third party doesn't make a substantial dent in 2016, I think we can officially declare democracy in the US dead.

Our last three presidents' ages are inauguration were 46 (Clinton), 54 (GeeDubya Bush), and 47 (Obama).  Those are "geriatrics"?  How old are you, 12?

Because to become President, you usually have to have been Senator, Governor, Congressman, General preferably of the Armies (LOT of these), etc.  And those have age limits themselves (and require previous ass-kissing and resume building to get them).

By the time you've done the necessary ass-kissing, resume building, and coming in second in the previous primary (R only), you're pretty much at minimum 45-50.

Well, you could vote for Rand Paul, if that's rogue-ey enough for you.

Hillary is too establishment for me.

He didn't say we're ELECTING them, he said we're RUNNING them (Dole, McCain, Perot, Bush I, Reagan, and maybe Brown, Clinton, and Biden next time).

I don't have a problem with 45-60. We're running the demographic that Life Alert markets to.

Also, the Constitution says you have to be 35.

Coincidentally, my 35th birthday is 10 days before the 2016 elections. Elect the Dreidel - I promise that no one will beat my youth record!

There's no actual indication that Jerry Brown is actually running for president except the rantings of a crazy Tea Partier.

In that last 4 presidential elections, only 1 of the 8 Dem/Rep nominees (McCain) was a geezer (and in my adult lifetime, I can't really recall any non-Republican nominees (i.e., nominees other than Dole, Reagan, McCain, and Bush Sr.) who might properly be characterized as geezers.

Geezers are legally allowed to run for president just like anybody else over age 35, but really, not many of them get very far.

coyo: Jerry Brown is the only financial conservative out there; he is the only one careful with money.I would love to see him as Pres but he is getting up there in years.


I didn't know he was still alive .

Tax Boy: Corvus: "Don't be surprised if California Gov. Jerry Brown runs for president in 2016," James V. Lacy, author of the newly published "Taxifornia: Liberals' Laboratory to Bankrupt America,"

Which is hilarious, because Anti-Taxifornia was the conservatives' laboratory that actually bankrupted America


And literally Orange County.

Snarfangel: Notabunny: fta James V. Lacy, author of the newly published "Taxifornia: Liberals' Laboratory to Bankrupt America,"

A fair and balanced scholar. Jerry Brown is pragmatic and effective, but he doesn't have anywhere near the national recognition Hillary has had for decades.


You know who else has national recognition? Dennis Rodman. And he can negotiate a fair and equitable peace between Best Korea and the Yankee imperialists.


Is Kimmy a Red Sox fan?

Madewithrealbitsofpanther: grumpfuff: Don't worry libs. A conservatroll will be here any minute to explain why CA is actually at the worst point economically that it's ever been, because reasons.

Well not yet, but the 3 year drought if it turns to a 4-5 year drought could kill the state and hard. And with the water bond being likely watered down to have any chance of passing in Nov or being punted to 2016 it is not likely to be improved in ay helpful way.


Is there a point where desalination becomes economically feasible for CA? I know they pipe in a lot of water from either upstate or out of state, but they're right next to a friggin' ocean. This seems like a solvable problem with the right infrastructure.

From what I have seen desal plants are not going to be truly viable for a while, too many issues. If the miracle material of graphene ever shapes up that might change quickly but don't bank on that. Another issue is the water is being used heavily inland in the ag sector,so you would have a huge energy sink of desal and then  you have to pump it uphill. the funnest off the wall idea I've heard was trying to pump water into death valley to use that as a natural desal, as well as brine dump, but to say that would produce problems is an understatement. I do remember China investigating a similiar concept last year but haven't heard if they moved forward.

spiderpaz: He's doing pretty good as California's governor ... he's actually trying to be a moderate and counter balance the radicals in his party.  I hope he doesn't try this - California doesn't need to put another unknown back into a position that could disrupt the productive balance it finally has managed to obtain.


I loved the last gubernatorial campaign.  You know how Tea Partiers are always on the "things were better 30 years ago" kick?  The Republican candidate made it her prime talking point, to which Jerry Brown said "Guess who was governor 30 years ago.  No really, guess."

I think that was the moment she lost the election.

The last time people seriously considered Brown to be a presidential contender was back in 1976.

Lorelle: The last time people seriously considered Brown to be a presidential contender was back in 1976.


Maybe, nationally. But here in Northern California, there's been a pretty steady conversation about his running for President ever since he started running for Governor. He'd be a good President, but I want him to stay here and continue to be a good Governor.

FTFA: "...Brown is planning to propose a $155 billion budget that includes an 8 percent increase in general-fund spending with billions of dollars of new spending on schools, health care, social services and environmental programs..."

What a monster! How can he propose such reckless, irresponsible pork spending on worthless projects?

I honestly don't think Hillary is going to run. Running for, and of course being president is an extremely huge undertaking and when you get to be in your mid 60's things start to change. That's the age most people start thinking about retirement. Normal politicians go for much longer, yes, but that's because they have much easier jobs. She's been through it all with Bill and again in her 08 campaign so she knows what it entails. I think she's purposefully making look like she's going to run in order to draw the attention of the GOP and have them waste all their time on her instead of looking at the real candidates, which Jerry Brown is not one of.
