pretty much any DNC candidate would beat anyone in the current field of GOP candidates.  Obama would win if he could run again.

Watch now boys and girls and see if the rest of the wingnut Tea Party 'press' starts jabbering this same idea, everywhere.

Now that Beck isn't on FOX, he has glimmers or coherent thought.

Should be fun to watch everyone act horrified at the notion while simultaneously doing everything predicted to make it a reality.

Do you remember 2008? A conservative calling for a Hillary win isn't exactly the shoo-in it used to be.

She could probably win but I'm thinking she's not going to run. What she will do is take all the attacks from the right as they shake in their boots in fear of her. After they've shot their best ammo the actual Democratic candidates will emerge and she'll write a book about her plan.

This was a fairly coherent thought and I was surprised.  It's not just that he said she's going to win, he acknowledged that while Republicans will be focusing on how shiat everything is, Democrats will be focusing on how great it could be, and will use the positive message to win the White House.  It's also not just that he insinuated she's inevitable but he also acknowledged the stupid hole of horseshiat that the GOP is forever wallowing in.

ampoliros: She could probably win but I'm thinking she's not going to run.


Maybe I'm just crazy cynical, but the only way I think Hillary doesn't win is if her tea-leaf-readers tell her she can't. Sure, she walks away with 40% of the Democratic primary vote just by showing up (assuming there's another decent contender in the mix, a la 08ama; if not, obviously it's hers), but she doesn't energize most people younger than me (33 next month) and she's got little chance of swinging >5% from the IND/GOP side.

If it's not in the cards, I bet she's more than happy to play kingmaker (or queenmaker). The only potential rub there is that Bill will always have more cachet than her (though any sober look at it would tell you that she'd need an 8-year presidency roughly on the level of Washington's to get more glory than Hubby).

// also, she'll never be as respected a poonhound unless she starts sleeping her way through the 2014 Penthouse calendar or something

I would love it if this were a concerted Democratic strategy to get Republicans to focus all their vitriol on Hillary, while Warren says she's not running, so when both are finally announce that Hillary isn't and Warren is, the Republican base loses their shiat entirely because all of their planning has gone to hell.

But I can dream in one hand and shiat in the other and see which one gets filled up first, I suppose.

Oh, I'm sure it's not a concerted effort by the Democrats; I'm pretty sure it's just her. She's probably got a pretty good idea who actually is looking to run on the Democratic ticket in 2016 (as they'd be insane not to have talked to her). She's more than likely OK with who it is and has decided to take the attacks and wait.

I imagine that if she wasn't OK with the person/people or thought they had little to no chance to win she'd be working things differently.

As for Warren, that's just my own personal hope. I know good and well she's not going to run.

I love Feingold.  The only problem with him is that he's  too nice a guy.  For starters, I dunno if he can even win the general election if he follows his campaign financing "rules" and his Republican opponent doesn't.  Also, you want a tiny little bit of evil bastard in a President.  Clinton had it.  Bush had it.  Even Obama is willing to smite you if needed (for instance, the Bin Laden raid).  Feingold is a farking saint, and I'm not sure a saint is able and willing to do all the behind the scenes shiat that is needed to be done for realpolitik reasons in the real world.

Feingold was in bed with lobbyists, too. He even used them in his campaign ads. He is just better at hiding it.

Yes, he is better than the vast majority, but he certainly was not "too nice" of a guy.

I won't vote for a republican candidate because they have morphed into "the war party" and will send our guys willy nilly to anywhere at anytime, just to build forts and have an elaborate supply line to make bucks off of. You know those jokers would have had us in Libya and the Ukraine by now; for freedom ($$$) of course.

But I ain't voting for goddamn Hillary Clinton. She is a dyed in the wool plutocrat, one of the most dangerous things on the planet to the average American citizen. Her foreign policy will be dictated by wall street, her domestic policy will be more of the anti middle class crapola that she has always chosen and corruption will flourish like never before.

Looks like we are going to be getting a choice of a sh*t sandwich or a rancid bowl of puke for our choices in the next POTUS election.

There's nothing wrong with the two party system, especially in Presidential races.  There's this thing called a primary, which for the past few election cycles, has had eight to twelve candidates running in each major party (when that party isn't the incumbent running for re-election).  There's plenty of choice there.

Of course he doesn't.

Look, few men have Hillary as their first choice for Democratic nominee for President.

But lots of women do, in fact, have her as their first choice, and they get to vote too (insert Fark rule change joke here).  In fact, they make up the vast majority of Democratic primary voters.  All the men complaining about her here on Fark and websites like this are more than wiped out by women who love her.

Look, a very, very small portion of the public wants to vote for Green/Socialist/Communist/Leftist candidates.  That's simply the truth.  Changing the voting system to something other than what we use now won't change that fact.

As this article points out, her entire carefully cultivated "I feel for the middle class" facade is phonier than a three dollar bill. My biggest complaint was that as a senator she was in a key position to do something to to aid the whistleblowers--a key in stopping entrenched government corruption, and she not only did nothing, she sided with the republicans attempting to protect their war profiteering in Iraq and kept other democrats from doing anything. Her recent criticisms of Obama for not intervening in the Syrian civil war and her remarks that anyone who criticizes Israel's outlandish policy in Gaza is "anti semitic" show that this a woman who has no principles, at all.

Right now I am a registered republican, after decades of being a democrat. Where I live it is all republicans and voting in the local republican primaries is the only way to keep the real stinkers out. But I will switch back to being a democrat
for the presidential elections and vote to stop Hillary Clinton.

But if she's the democratic candidate, I figure it won't make a flip--you are going to get a wall street owned plutocrat either way--- so why bother?

And good luck to that whole AIPAC thing, I believe it's also called "Who Wants to Kiss Sheldon Adelson's Ring?", with the first GOP candidate to say out loud that Feingold will be soft on Israel. Really, good luck convincing everybody that Rand Paul has more compassion for Israel.
