    If I had to pick a ticket right now it would be Walker/Rubio. Then in 2024 it would be Rubio/Love.

    I never said that, so lets stick to what I actually said or even implied.

    The Clintons and their obvious problems. You're upset that they are being pointed out.
    The Clintons have many problems. I'm not upset that they're being pointed out, I'm amused that Hillary is being blamed for the infidelities of not only her husband, but her friend's husband.

    What does that tell me? Several possibilities come to mind.

    1) The big banks don't want her meddling in their affairs. With the hundreds of trillions - yes trillions - of dollars in derivatives that the "too big to fail" banks are attempting to remove from their books by making the taxpayers responsible for any losses that occur, this is going to be a big problem if things start to unravel globally. She doesn't trust them, and the feeling is apparently mutual.

    2) She has seen the handwriting on the wall that Hillary is totally determined to become the next POTUS, and will not tolerate another "upstart" interfering in her quest - she had that humiliation once, and does not intend to let it happen again. A million dollars is not enough money for her to fight it.

    3) The Clinton machine is a "one-world-government" backer, and depending upon what BHO does to either hinder or help her - since she is apparently his choice as his successor - it looks, at the moment, like there will only be one choice as the Democrat contender for the office.

    Things can change, and when the dust settles and a Republican nominee is finally chosen, that's when things will get serious. Hillary has a lot of baggage, but she does have name recognition, so we can count on seeing the most cut-throat election in history, IMO. World events will see to that, and the China-Russia machinations on the world stage to undo our favored nation status looks to me to be one of the most important in our country's history, because that is bigger than any one person could ever be, IMO. We shall see.
    Mornin Pol!

    I've heard of a couple names being thrown out as potential contenders on the left other than just Hillary. I think most folks on the left would feel more comfortable having the candidates announce within the next couple of weeks. We shall see.

    All I know is this is the first GOP primary where I can say that I'm looking forward to in a very long time. There's some really good possibilities.

    You aren't sounding amused, and you're claiming you didn't say what you said in the sentence above. In effect, "I didn't say what I just said."

    No, you said I said something I didn't say, pretended I did, and now you're just going in circles. Anything else?

    I like this pic too!



    This is why she is seen as evil among Canadian women. She "forgave" Bill and attacked the victim. She engaged in a personal vendetta against the woman her husband seduced and used. Had he been a corporate executive in this country his career would have ended. Period.

    She did it for one reason. Her political career. She tied herself to a bad man who cheated on her since the beginning, Bill is a sex addict who has left a trail of destruction in his path and she covered for him to be where she is today, knocking on the door to the White House. As balm somehow she is now laiming to be a champion of women, likely because being a woman is the only thing she has to offer the job.

    Today's real women don't have to hide anymore, at least not in this country. What she did relegated the US to another few decades of 1950's June Cleaver "obey" mentality.

    There's a reason why the US has no women in power, women like her

    You are being very disingenuous. I did not put the blame on Hillary. Because she remained in a relationship where her husband continued to be unfaithful I find troubling, bizarre, creepy. Now this is the umpteenth time you have mischaracterized what I stated. One comment I make in response to another poster and you have tried your damndest to derail this thread by mischaracterizing what I said.

    I like your picks. I have a half dozen others I like too. Can't remember ever having that many potential candidates in a GOP primary. And that's a good thing.

    You said that because Hillary stayed with a cheater, has a friend who was in a similar situation, she is 'not a swell choice to have as a potential first president.'

    Yeah, I do like the options. It contrasts with the DNC that may not even give their members a choice this year cycle.
