    Which....if you noticed....were the two that I mentioned as the only two candidates that stand any much of a chance. Even there...Walker is a long shot. The rest of the group are clowns through and through.

    Isn't Hillary Clinton an old White woman?

    Hillary Clinton is 68 years old. I don't believe that many people would call her a young White woman.

    She hasn't supported the GOP for quite a while.

    Why do you think Walker has walked back his support of comprehensive immigration reform ?
    Everyone and their dog says that Reagan's amnesty failed. Obviously it did or we wouldn't "need" another round of it.

    Walker is walking back his "comprehensive" reform because "comprehensive" has been negatively linked with amnesty.

    Everyone can beat her. We could run the grand poobah of the KKK promoting cigarette sales in schools, war on Canada and the abolishing of seat belts, and Hillary would lose by a landslide.

    Don't count on it.

    And don't count on the ability of the GOP to defeat a president who should be easy to defeat. Hint: Look at the election of 2012.

    We'll see how that turns out next year, eh?

    Age was mentioned against the GOP and she is the oldest candidate among those seeking the presidency. I don;t care how old a candidate is if they are competent and knowledgeable but the phrase "old White men", as used by the poster, is obviously out of place.

    That was the fault of the electorate, not the candidate. When people don't understand the genuine issues but get sidetracked by things like free birth control then it is the electorate who is clearly responsible. Their attention will get redirected to trivia in the next presidential campaign as well.

    Re: Looks like Rick Perry's going to jump on the Presidential candidate bandwagon.

    In the past 100 years worth of presidential elections:
    1 - D
    3 - R
    5 - D
    2 - R
    2 - D
    2 - R
    1 - D
    3 - R
    2 - D
    2 - R
    2 - D

    the pendulum swings back and forth. sometimes the general electorate just hears enough negative stories in a 4 or 8 year party and it's more or less "ok the other party gets a try now".

    only one party since Truman/FDR have won three straight terms

    the only four elections in the popular vote margin of victory was greater than double-digits they've all been R beating a D

    add in the recent "shock" results in the UK, and I just have a feeling that unless the GOP nominates a complete lunatic (not an impossibility) then this one just goes back to the R candidate. it doesn't even have to be one particular issue.
