    FFS...do think that using a cell phone for incessant posting is good for deteriorating eyesight?

    And the original issue wasn't so much spelling but sentence structure....or the lack there of.

    Whatever one thinks of her record in the Senate, the reality is that New Yorkers re-elected her with 67% of the vote in 2006. She has a large base of support. That doesn't mean she's not beatable.

    In a hypothetical race, the GOP candidate would need to articulate a coherent and realistic vision for the future, offer a substantive positive policy approach for increasing the nation's economic growth/improve living standards, and offer real alternatives to policies adopted under the Obama Administration. For the economic growth strategy to be credible, it would need to outline tax policy, regulatory policy, investments that could increase the nation's rate of innovation/enhance its competitiveness, trade policy, etc. The fiscal numbers would need to add up. Barring unfavorable economic circumstances (which would strengthen the case for change), the burden of proof would rest with the candidate seeking to change direction.

    Finally, in terms of personal attributes, the GOP candidate would need to be an effective communicator and have gravitas. A candidate along the lines of Ron Paul (below average communicator), Sarah Palin (below average communicator), or Herman Cain (no meaningful credentials to suggest that he could lead the nation) will face a very difficult challenge. A high profile governor (executive experience in getting things done) would probably be more attractive than a Senator (very low public approval rating of the Congress), excepting a few Senators who have distinguished themselves or have the ability to do so between now and the 2016 race.

    Well, unless you call being a US Senator for 17 minutes as "meaningful credentials".

    Right now, I'd vote for anyone with a great idea.

    Re: Clinton leads potential opponents in new poll

    We'll learn more next year. It may be revealing. I do know that many who voted for Obama are disappointed for a variety of reasons. So, the Ds are vulnerable but they will have to moderate and modify to overcome political inertia. Both Bush and Obama were re-elected at a time when they weren't popular but the alternative seemed worse.

    However, I'm sure he'll turn around by 2015.

    That's the political narrative, not a finding of the investigation. The ARB concluded:

    However, the Board did not find that any individual U.S. Government employee engaged in misconduct or willfully ignored his or her responsibilities, and, therefore did not find reasonable cause to believe that an individual breached his or her duty so as to be the subject of a recommendation for disciplinary action.

    Given the vast attention that has been given to the matter in the media and Congress and Secretary Clinton's resilient polling numbers, one will need credible evidence that goes beyond the ARB's findings if the issue is to pose a serious risk to her candidacy. Merely reasserting the political narrative (likely during the campaign) won't be sufficient, as Secretary Clinton can readily rebut it with the actual findings that do not support the political narrative.

    Pathetic weak sauce. Empty left wing talking points drek.


    "One way or the other, we are determined to deny Iraq the capacity to develop weapons of mass destruction and the missiles to deliver them. That is our bottom line."
    --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 4, 1998

    "If Saddam rejects peace and we have to use force, our purpose is clear. We want to seriously diminish the threat posed by Iraq's weapons of mass destruction program."
    --President Bill Clinton, Feb. 17, 1998

    "Iraq is a long way from [here], but what happens there matters a great deal here. For the risks that the leaders of a rogue state will use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons against us or our allies is the greatest security threat we face."
    --Madeline Albright, Feb 18, 1998

    "He will use those weapons of mass destruction again, as he has ten times since 1983."
    --Sandy Berger, Clinton National Security Adviser, Feb, 18, 1998

    "[W]e urge you, after consulting with Congress, and consistent with the U.S. Constitution and laws, to take necessary actions (including, if appropriate, air and missile strikes on suspect Iraqi sites) to respond effectively to the threat posed by Iraq's refusal to end its weapons of mass destruction programs."
    Letter to President Clinton, signed by:
    -- Democratic Senators Carl Levin, Tom Daschle, John Kerry, and others, Oct. 9, 1998

    "Saddam Hussein has been engaged in the development of weapons of mass destruction technology which is a threat to countries in the region and he has made a mockery of the weapons inspection process."
    -Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D, CA), Dec. 16, 1998

    "Hussein has ... chosen to spend his money on building weapons of mass destruction and palaces for his cronies."
    -- Madeline Albright, Clinton Secretary of State, Nov. 10, 1999

    "There is no doubt that ... Saddam Hussein has reinvigorated his weapons programs. Reports indicate that biological, chemical and nuclear programs continue apace and may be back to pre-Gulf War status. In addition, Saddam continues to redefine delivery systems and is doubtless using the cover of a licit missile program to develop longer-range missiles that will threaten the United States and our allies."
    Letter to President Bush, Signed by:
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), and others, Dec 5, 2001

    "We begin with the common belief that Saddam Hussein is a tyrant and a threat to the peace and stability of the region. He has ignored the mandate of the United Nations and is building weapons of mass destruction and th! e means of delivering them."
    -- Sen. Carl Levin (D, MI), Sept. 19, 2002

    "We know that he has stored secret supplies of biological and chemical weapons throughout his country."
    -- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "Iraq's search for weapons of mass destruction has proven impossible to deter and we should assume that it will continue for as long as Saddam is in power."
    -- Al Gore, Sept. 23, 2002

    "We have known for many years that Saddam Hussein is seeking and developing weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Ted Kennedy (D, MA), Sept. 27, 2002

    "The last UN weapons inspectors left Iraq in October of 1998. We are confident that Saddam Hussein retains some stockpiles of chemical and biological weapons, and that he has since embarked on a crash course to build up his chemical and biological warfare capabilities. Intelligence reports indicate that he is seeking nuclear weapons..."
    -- Sen. Robert Byrd (D, WV), Oct. 3, 2002

    "I will be voting to give the President of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security."
    -- Sen. John F. Kerry (D, MA), Oct. 9, 2002

    "There is unmistakable evidence that Saddam Hussein is working aggressively to develop nuclear weapons and will likely have nuclear weapons within the next five years ... We also should remember we have always underestimated the progress Saddam has made in development of weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D, WV), Oct 10, 2002

    "He has systematically violated, over the course of the past 11 years, every significant UN resolution that has demanded that he disarm and destroy his chemical and biological weapons, and any nuclear capacity. This he has refused to do"
    -- Rep. Henry Waxman (D, CA), Oct. 10, 2002

    "In the four years since the inspectors left, intelligence reports show that Saddam Hussein has worked to rebuild his chemical and biological weapons stock, his missile delivery capability, and his nuclear program. He has also given aid, comfort, and sanctuary to terrorists, including al Qaeda members ... It is clear, however, that if left unchecked, Saddam Hussein will continue to increase his capacity to wage biological and chemical warfare, and will keep trying to develop nuclear weapons."
    -- Sen. Hillary Clinton (D, NY), Oct 10, 2002

    "We are in possession of what I think to be compelling evidence that Saddam Hussein has, and has had for a number of years, a developing capacity for the production and storage of weapons of mass destruction."
    -- Sen. Bob Graham (D, FL), Dec. 8, 2002

    "Without question, we need to disarm Saddam Hussein. He is a brutal, murderous dictator, leading an oppressive regime ... He presents a particularly grievous threat because he is so consistently prone to miscalculation ... And now he is miscalculating America's response to his continued deceit and his consistent grasp for weapons of mass destruction ... So the threat of Saddam Hussein with weapons of mass destruction is real..."

    No, we should be able to do better. For that to happen, we need better alternatives.

    Re: Clinton leads potential opponents in new poll

    In 2008 the first black American was elected president, in 2018 the first woman (HRC) will be elected POTUS. The GOP will nominate another piss-poor candidate (John McCain, Mitt Romney, ?????) because Fox News will be involved with the primary selection process as they have in the last two presidential elections. Presidential candidates need to introduce themselves through the mainstream media, not on a partisan news organization like Fox or MSNBC.

    My deteriorating eye sight is due to issues unrelated to posting on a forum via a droid POS cell phone. But, I'm sure your right to some degree, it sure doesn't help.

    But hey !!! I found a desktop with a 22 " screen. It's like getting that shot of epinephrine that counters a severe asthma attack...Fresh air.

    If the original issue WAS structure why did you critique my spelling ?
