    I like Elizibeth Warren a lot, but she's no polititian. I don't think she could fight dirty.

    I don't see why Cain can't be a strong contender. He certainly wasn't rebuked for his ideas and policies.

    Once Republicans (and their constituants) stop pretending that all candidates require untarnished halos, they can field a candidate there on merit and not to cater to the ignorant bloc of the party.

    Re: Who will be the Democratic nominee in 2016?

    2 months ago I said the 2012 election was in the bag and that by 2014, Biden would be out due to some 'unforseen' health problem or family tragedy and Hillary called on to serve the country as the VP. That would pretty much seal both 2016 and 2020.

    Since the last 2 months, I have actually kinda been less convinced that 2012 is such a shoe in. I still think Obama wins it by hook or by crook (I suspect a total amnesty w/ voting rights come August October time frame if he is lagging in the polls), but while Romney isnt doing anything to win it, Obama isnt doing himself any favors.

    Here's a wild idea...if Obama loses this election, he could in theory run in 2016 - it would only be his second term.



    But that's highly unlikely.

    He's also expected to ease up on marijuana users to get the youth vote. If anything, that'll put him over the top.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    At least might get them interested in voting this time around since they have absolutely zero motivation based on his job performance so far.

    Voted for Martin O'Malley. my preferred D nominee.

    It'll probably be Hillary though.

    Romney = Obama. The last election we had any CHOICE in was 1992!

    Hillary, with Bill as her running mate. I'm just saying, that would be definite win after 16 years of terribad economy.
