    She's not the Bachman of the left. The only reason he is making that comparison is because she is a woman that he disagrees with.

    She is rather level headed, not beholden to corporate interest, has the ability to compromise, and wants to get stuff done.

    Out of those candidates, Hillary would get my support, so would Cuomo, Warren, and Patrick. Cory Booker would probably get me the most excited, I'd probably actively campaign for that guy.

    that was my impression, but as i said, i've only seen her in news clips, and my exposure to her platform is limited. from what i've seen, though, she is the one i prefer out of that list.

    Adding poll, please be patient.
    Of those on the list I would latch onto Mark Warner, off the list I would like to see Senator John Tester of MT run, Retiring Senator Tim Johnson of SD or retired Senator Kent Conrad of ND. My favorite at this time would be Missouri Govenor Jay Nixon.
    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.

    I like Warren, but I don't think she's do well in a national election. She doesn't have the chops.

    Biden is a non-starter. Booker's strength so far is the kind of hands-on stuff that Presidents can't really do. Cuomo, maybe, let's see how NY shapes up in a few years.

    Clinton is fairly popular, survived the primary loss with her reputation in decent shape, has a lot of appeal to the center. The far right will shriek endlessly about Benghazi and who knows what other old news; after the Foster nonsense, I suspect she can handle it -- probably better than the other candidates can handle a similar scandal.

    Plus, I know it's a bit shallow, but we are well overdue for a woman president. Heck, even Pakistan had a woman president years before the US.

    Chris Christie would be fine, with Susana Martinez as VP. His more authoritarian executive urges would be well taken care of if Rand Paul is the Senate Leader. To complete the balance of power, the House should be Democratic, by a thin margin, with Peter DeFazio, or some other honest socialist, as Speaker.

    Warren is a smug, self-righteous, arrogant, um, not-nice-word who has no appreciation for the limits of government.

    But she is also an actual intellectual. She's not the Bachman of the left. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is the Bachman of the left.

    True. People have to like you, nowadays.

    Biden is a non-starter. Booker's strength so far is the kind of hands-on stuff that Presidents can't really do.
    Booker apparently made up significant portions of his personal past in order to help run for office. He can get away with that if he's the D in New Jersey with no real competition; but he would be massacred for that in a national race.

    Cuomo, maybe, let's see how NY shapes up in a few years.
    I dunno - he just lost quite a bushelfull of money with his gun initiatives out west. He may have the tendency to overestimate his appeal outside of the City.

    Clinton is fairly popular, survived the primary loss with her reputation in decent shape, has a lot of appeal to the center. The far right will shriek endlessly about Benghazi and who knows what other old news; after the Foster nonsense, I suspect she can handle it -- probably better than the other candidates can handle a similar scandal.
    Any race with Clinton in it sucks the air out of the room and focuses it on Clinton and her time as the SoS, where she appears to have had no notable achievements and several small to medium-sized failures. I'll admit, I don't really know how that plays out - if she goes for the crying thing again and tries to pull the "Republicans are beating up on the girl" narrative, it might get her some good breathing room in her scandals, but you would have a problem jiving that with the angry "what differences does it make if an ambassador got killed and we were negligent!" outbursts.

    The downside to that is, it lets' the Republican be the Fresh New Candidate, as opposed to the Same Old Politics, which Clinton is drenched in and won't be able to extricate herself from.

    Plus, I know it's a bit shallow, but we are well overdue for a woman president. Heck, even Pakistan had a woman president years before the US.
    Really couldn't care less. Though I know alot of Democrats will agree strongly with your position here. "it's hillary's turn", so to speak.
