Hopefully. I really don't want Hillary as the democratic nominee, enough with the nepotism.

If we can convince Warren to run, then they will get off the Hillary train faster than a co-ed's top
 
2014-04-15 08:55:14 AM
I like Hilary better this time around - she learned some humility in '08 when she thought she would get to be president just because it was her turn, and she had to do some actual, respectable work as secretary of state rather than thinking one term in the senate was a good enough resume.

That said, I'm tired of baby boomer presidents.  Let's move on.

Typical.  Liberal indoctrination.

Getting 16 and 17 year olds to vote?  It's like ACORN all over again!  I hope someone tipped off James O'Keefe.

I'm really excited to hear stories of her dodging sniper fire again.

It can at least be confirmed that she has dodged a shoe.

For 2016, you are getting a Republican. Get used to it.

i really can't think of anything major she did as sec state

other than BENCGHACZI

Yea, good luck. I might hold my nose and vote for her in the general, but no way I'm voting or supporting her in the primaries.
 
2014-04-15 10:03:25 AM
Back in 2007 everyone was for Hillary, then they dropped her like a bad habit as soon as Barack came around. Now this time it will be different?
 
2014-04-15 10:03:45 AM
I have no reason to think this other than logic, but seems like younger people are less enthused about Hillary than they were at this point in 2006.

somedude210: If we can convince Warren to run, then they will get off the Hillary train faster than a co-ed's top


In order to convince Warren to run, you'd probably have to convince Hillary not to.

MayoSlather: Hopefully. I really don't want Hillary as the democratic nominee, enough with the nepotism.


If she's the best candidate that has the best chance of winning, I'm not really concerned with what family she comes from.  I vote as progressively as I can, provided the candidate has a strong chance to win against the derpocalypse.

Give me a candidate that can beat the next Christie/Ryan/Paul/etc, and I'll throw my support behind them.  Right now, that person is Clinton.

I have heard many loyal Democrats say they're never voting for Obama again, so what are millennials going to do, vote Republican?

They'll be old enough to vote in November of 2016.

As a millennial, I would vote for Hillary simply because shes not from the GOP.  Hillary vs Biden, not sure if I care.

It worked for Obama, why not her?

They can try to blame the young voters all they want, but the reason Obama beat her out was he had a more positive message.

Now, if someone popped up out of the blue (which I'm not seeing, even Obama was on the radar for a while, saw him featured in TIME and NEWSWEEK a lot years before election cycle happened) and had a better message than Clinton, they'd probably get my vote in the primary too.

You underestimate the insane people vote.

I love how the best people can say about her is "She's not a republican".  Our political apathy is going to destroy us.

The difference being Obama ran a good campaign and Hillary's was an absolute shiat show where she just assumed she'd win several states so she did little to no campaigning in them.

I wish Howard Dean - the liberal part of the '04 primaries - hadn't been savaged by the "liberal" media in 2004.

We need someone like her.  She won't be content to let the GOP do nothing to stifle her every chance they get like with Obama.

If you think Hillary and her political machine is above bogus voter registrations then you're all fools.  Democrats will take dead people.  You think Secretary Cankles is above conscripting teenagers for her corps of liberal thugs?

Let me laugh at you harder.

Sure and drop their social agenda. They need a space elevator to raise the bar enough.

Do you still not realize that somebody who is 16 years old today is eligible to vote in 2016?  Are you really that dense?
