    She does have a stellar record and is exactly what the Dems need however.

    Clinton has the disadvantage of being old news for a very long time now.
    Lizzie has a stellar record of what?

    We're two years out from the election, a year before any potential candidate has to commit. Lots can happen. We'll see new speculation daily till then.

    If you can't see through it, yes, that is amazing.

    Hmmmm looks like it's not a shoe-in for Hillary.
    Warren poses a challenge to Hillary... also in the news, water is still wet.

    I think the rank and file are in Hillary's corner. The fringe left in Warren's. I think her, Warren's support can grow and it may grow at Hillary's expense or at the expense of Biden, O'Malley, Sanders or some other candidate or perhaps a bit of both. How much of Hillary's support is written in stone is unknown, but it does seem she has the backing of the mega moneyed donors. I think if Warren is to have a decent chance, she will need to pry a few of those mega moneyed Democratic backers of Hillary away from her.
    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.

    Exactly, since Hillary believes gun control is a state issue you're right in that she won't do **** about guns in terms of being for them or against them, ultimately I'd say that's pretty good.

    That's why I want to see Warren get wiped.

    The notion of Sacajawea as a foe of Wall Street (Lawyers) & bailouts is nonsense.
    Her own funding sources puts the lie to that.
    And she's no foe of business bailouts.
    And she's managed to make herself a millionaire nonetheless.
    Big bucks to be made in prestigious Universities off Wall Street offspring.
    No sack cloth & ashes for that one, no sir.
