    Too bad there's just age and citizenship requirement. I'd like to see the qualifications or resumes, maybe including some military service.

    If I had to bet, I would say that either one has a better shot at the Presidency than Jeb. By then....most people will have forgotten about the fiasco of GW.

    Bill was a down home type of guy, his wife isn't. But unless the GOP finds someone like Eisenhower who appeals to the masses, not just the hard core right. She doesn't have to be. Maybe Jeb Bush could, I do not know. I think he would do better than Paul or Cruz. But there is also the possibility that the two candidates that will be running against each other in 2016 isn't even on our radar screen yet.
    I think she'll win mostly because Bill will be there campaigning and his charisma and campaigning abilities grabs a large swath of the "middle" ground voters.

    Let's call the middle ground voters independents. Gallup puts their numbers at approximately 45% of the total electorate. I agree, most of these independents have fond memories of Bill's tenure as president. They wish they still had him as president. But I am not sure how much of Bill will rub off on his wife. I am not an independent, Reform Party member, but the fact that Bill would be behind the scenes directing his wife or at least giving her guidance is enough not to write her off my ballot. Not yet anyhow. I suppose there are quite a lot of others who feel the same way.

    But still I have this gut feeling that she won't run. I can't give you a reason for that feeling, it is just there. Hillary is running way ahead in all polls dealing with the Democratic nomination in the 60's. That tells me unless something drastic happens, changes the nomination is hers hands down. Yet my gut says it won't happen. Bush or any other Republicans are around 10% or lower. Of course it is so early one wouldn't expect anything different.

    At this point in time, I don't see how a Republican can win in 2016. Especially when states like Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia are trending blue. But one can never tell. 2016 can become a repeat of 2008 when the voters were not going to elect a Republican to the presidency no matter what. If they get as tired of Obama as they did Bush that is. But that is pure speculation and throwing in a what if. If I had to put money on the 2016 election today, I would place it on Hillary or any other Democrat. Just counting trustworthy states the Democrats have a 256 to 191 advantage. 270 to win.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Is Jeb Bush is such a pussy that he wouldn't run even if Mommy Dearest didn't approve?

    That's pretty weak.

    I think her chances of winning the dem nomination will be harder than the general election. If the GOP had any ship sinking surprises to down her we'd have heard it by now. She's had too many years to scrub those barnacles off her political career. I think any surprises coming her way will be her being unprepared for and getting blind sided from the left in the primary because of her economically centrist and war hawkish positions that don't sit too well with folks on the left.

    That's possible. We will just have to wait and see. But the Democrats have had a history of nominating someone with the best chances to win whereas the Republicans have been more ideological in their choice. This goes for not only the presidency, but the senate as well. We seen what happens when an Aiken, Mourdock, Angle etc. get nominated. They lose.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
