    All very true, which leads me to the belief that Elections will no longer be a meaningful tactic to make the necessary changes in this country.

Plenty of people are in excellent health when they're 77, but it is up there and the presidency is nothing but stress.

    Much of what her own party people brought against her to win the dem primaries for Obama will be brought back up AND the slew of new stuff she's managed to add to the tally in recent years. It's a long time politically speaking until the 2016 elections. All sorts of possibilities for candidates can and will come up in that time. It's just too soon to make any sort of prediction.

    But seriously, what do you really think?
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    That was probably the most polite way I could have phrased it, Hatuey.

    Oh lord, this woman is pure evil. If she wins, I am fairly certain the sun will envelope the earth and dark matter will reverse the creation of the universe.
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.
