    I expect that we will still see some Democratic presidential nominees who will run only to get their name out by the media for when they run in 2016.

    I'm actually very interested to see which other Democrats will throw their hat in the ring.
    True. I ddn't title this well, but everyone seems to get the idea.

    I'd definitely prefer Hillary at this point, but in the end it's not that big a deal.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Actually, honestly, I think that by the time someone is in the Presidency it doesn't matter all that much who it is as whoever it is will still be such a part of the political machine that keeps things going. No matter who is elected will have his strings pulled regarding certain issues.

    This goes for Republicans and Democrats both, and those from any faction within the two parties.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    I'm not a registered Dem, but I would consider voting Democrat if they had someone other than Obama running.

    Maybe an Obama who isn't worried about re-election can do something besides sucking Boehner's... well... you know...
