Decent NYT article about the strategic interim career choices she faces during the next 4 years.

FWIW, she's presently denying any intention to run. Yeah, riiiiiiiight!

Nothing gives this staunch American libruhl more hope for the future of the Republic than the prospect of President Hilary. She's one tough, uber smart, disciplined, seasoned and experienced babe.

For me, what underlies everything in national politics is who gets to nominate Supreme Court justices. The dream scenario of 8 years of Hilary following these 4 more of Barry gives me great, good hope that we can take back the Court from the Axis of True Evil -- Scalia (batman), Thomas (robin), and Roberts (Commissioner Whatshisname?).

Eyes on the prize, boy-os, eyes on the goddamn prize! :thumbsup:

I'd like to see her go up against Dr. Rand Paul. She would have very little on him and then anything she tried to use against him would backfire on her. Not that I support Rand Paul either, but I think a debate between those two would be interesting.

I don't like her and liberals shouldn't either because she is too pro-war. I admire her for her commitment to feminism, but it's misguided because govt just winds up hurting women than it helps them.

While I'd prefer she had some executive experience under her belt, I could see her being a good President (of course she could be a huge failure instead, one can never know in advance). However, I'd have to wear ear plugs every time she gave a State of the Union because her voice at times sounds like nails on chalkboard to me.

Here, I'll make it easy to quote me.

Hillary will not run for President in 2016. - Ironwing
She may run for Senate again, but not President.

She's capable, but she lost me when she became the unelected co-president back in the '90's.

Here's what I like about Mr. Obama - he was, until recently, a political outsider/newcomer. I don't agree with the majority of his stances but I absolutely LOVE the fact that he hasn't been in elected office or attached to an elected official for the last 30 years, that's the biggest thing he had going for him in 2008 IMO, it wasn't Bush or the economy, it was the "new blood" factor. Hillary has too many skeletons, she's been around too long. I could never vote for her.

I been saying this for a long time, she should have been the one to win the Democrat nomination and not Obummer. This country will hurt for 8 years because we didn't have this wonderful lady leading us.

what has electing an "outsider" gotten you, though? meetings with lobbyists in the coffee shop across the street from the White House instead of inside?

I'm not expecting Hillary to run in 2016, but I'd probably vote for her if she did.

Yes, hopefully she'll get elected president and then drive through downtown Dallas in an open convertible.


Take a month off, after which, you will either personally promise not to post like this again or you will remain banned.

/this

he claimed to be a outsider. truth is nothing changed with him vs anyone else.

but yeah i think i would vote for hilary if she ran.

that too.

personally i don't think it matters who we elect in. They aren't really in charge of much as people think.

Hard to see her not running, and harder seeing her not win the nom if she does.

GOP would need a miracle comeback to beat her. I don't see them getting their shit together in four years.

I think I would have to vote Republican if Hillary is the nomination. We already made history once, let's just pick the best person this time....and that isn't Hillary.

I'm absolutely sure EVERYONE in the Democratic Party would absolutely love to either of the Sainted Pauls as the GOP nominee-against anyone. The blowout would rival Dukakis.

The downside of a Hillary nomination would be Benghazi ad nauseum, the only blot on her otherwise stellar service as Sec of State.

I'm really not interested in having another neo-con in the White House.

Also, what's with us americans and continuing political dynasties. This country was founded to get away from this crap.

Concentration of power. I don't understand it myself but people do it, possibly subconsciously. The people who want Hillary would vote Slick Willy back in if they legally could. Same goes for the Bushes. While I think that Jeb would make a decent President, I'd say we're done with the family but I hear people say they would vote for him. I wouldn't.

We have 300+ million people in the US. The best we can do is a former President's wife and also a current non-elected government official? Why? Why? Why?

Find someone else.

Heh, just like the 30 year old Kennedy getting into office here, no real experience, just a name brand people are comfortable with.
