So there are three governors already and this is not to mention some dark horse like Nixon from MO.

    Biden is going nowhere. Forget him.

    he's the jerry ford of the demo party. nice guy, but not much there
    and like jerry, the only way he becomes president is to fall into the position
    we should be praying for Obama's continued good health

    Re: Hillary too sick to run

    All I can say is that as an Independent I'm not tied to anyone. I damn sure will not vote for Hillary or Biden. I can't imagine the Republicans having anyone that would be worthy of my vote either. Whoever the GOP runs will have to be vetted by TeaPartisans and the Religious Right. Hillary running or not is not going to throw my vote to the Republicans. I'm going to vote 3rd party again.

    As for Hillary being sick, I haven't a clue.

    Re: Hillary too sick to run

    Hillary really REALLY wants to be President. She feels like she has paid her dues, putting up with an unfaithful husband for all those years in Arkansas government and then the White House, taking the flak an activist first lady is going to take, managing to get elected as Senator, etc. And it was within her grasp in 2008--almost there--she could taste it--until a young relatively unknown, unqualified, Barack Obama snatched it all away. That had to be the most galling thing she has ever had to endure. But maybe being Secretary of State would solidify her chances for 2016.

    But once you turn 60, eight years can make quite a difference in your physical stamina and possibly general health. Hillary will be 69 in 2016, the same age Ronald Reagan was when he was elected in 1980. Reagan, however, was in pretty good health at that time. If Hillary isn't, that could make a significant difference.

    The CON game is fun to watch. Hillary has a rather large negative number CONs love to point out...until it gets in the way of a new rant, now she is the heir apparent to the very CONs who have been blasting her for everything from husband, through Benghazi to her voice...

    She has been the presumptive President before- how did that work out???? I'd bet a shiny Cruz quarter many dems wish she wouldn't run, that a fresh new face emerges instead.

    LBJ stepping aside made the Democrat's primary process a calf scramble, and one candidate, Robert Kennedy, being assassinated. It was a tumultuous process the likes we didn't see again until the Tea Party candidates self destructed one after the other and Willard emerged the GOP nominee.

    I'd say rumors of Hillary not being able to run pales in comparison.

    The Nixon/Kennedy debate was a HUGE turning point in American politics, the effects we still feel today as now more than ever TV and political ads have reached far more and given politics a new low than ever. Once what a President said meant far more than what he looked like saying it. many an ugly fat man ran for President until the cameras became a fixture of politics. Once the TV camera stepped in looks trumped substance in many ways- just ask any CON...

    Nixon looked nervous, shifty, unsure. JFK relaxed and charming.

    I'd say the last GOP debacle of a nominating process means more than if Hillary runs or not.... but then again I am not a CON...

    I do not think so. I think whomever the Democratic nominee is, he/she will be starting out with a huge electoral college advantage. Trust worth blue states add up to 258 electoral votes with only 270 needed to win. The Republicans have on 186 electoral votes in trust worthy states. Of course this all depends on whom is the nominees. A Schweitzer run would place MT 3 EV into the Democratic column leaving them only 9 short of victory with the toss up states listed as Fl, NC, VA, OH, NH, IA and NV.

    This sort of built in advantage is what made Christie so desirable for the GOP before bridgegate, he would have switched NJ 14 EV into the GOP column and probably made the states of PA, CT, DE into the toss up column dropping the Democratic trust worthy states down to 214 vs. Christies's 200. Christie before bridgegate basically made the race an even one. I see as of today, no other candidate that has the power to do that for the GOP.
    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.

    Read what again?

    FYI...Hillary isn't president, her health as a candidate[thread topic] is not mentioned in the US Constitution. As President it is. Also I mentioned article II which provides for a VP just in case.

    If you can decern from the simplicity of my posts, just let them roll on by...

    I really liked Joe as a Senator and I think he has been a good VP. But yeah, I will drink to President Obama's good health.

    If true this would shake up the next election big time. The democrats don't really have a next in line except her and would be stuck with Biden in which case they lose.


    "If you listen to the chattering class in Washington, D.C., Hillary Clinton is a virtual certainty for the 2016 Democratic nomination, and the front-runner in the next presidential race.

    But in private, rumors persist that the former Secretary of State may not even be capable of making it to Iowa and New Hampshire. Clinton, these skeptics often say, will not run for president again because of health concerns."

    “Already,” Henneberger wrote, “reports that describe Clinton’s right transverse sinus venous thrombosis as potentially life-threatening, though apparently caught in enough time, sound a lot more serious than the word from her doctors that the secretary is ‘making excellent progress and we are confident she will make a full recovery. She is in good spirits, engaging with her doctors, her family and her staff.’”
    Henneberger asked then if we would “really be shocked to learn down the road that reports during her hospitalization had put a positive spin on her condition?”
    “Our public officials have trained us to take everything they say with a healthy dose of skepticism,” Henneberger continued, “and on a matter as sensitive as a head injury followed by denials of any neurological symptoms, I’m not sure why we would or should unquestioningly accept the word of any politician.”
    Some have noted Clinton’s change in appearance, including the addition of thick glasses, since her hospitalization. “One doesn’t need to be a physician… to have seen that Clinton has not appeared exactly bright-eyed and bushy-tailed of late,” Mary Stanik, a former Minnesota health care spokeswoman, wrote in 2013. “She looks to have gained a significant amount of weight since 2008. She seems pale, tired, and yes, aged. She’s said that she would like to know again what it’s like to not be tired.”
    Last year, a Clinton aide acknowledged that her health crisis caused her to stop wearing contact lenses.
    “She’ll be wearing these glasses instead of her contacts for a period of time because of lingering issues stemming from her concussion,” spokesman Philippe Reines told ABC News in 2013. “With them on, she sees just fine.”


    Rumors persist that Hillary won



    A lot of people in the GOP are on their knees praying that Mrs Clinton doesn't run.

    I predict that God will ignore them and she'll be the next president.

    Re: Hillary too sick to run

    So basically, Hillary wan't faking it when the Benghazi "scandal" () broke?
    “No men are anywhere, and I’m allowed to go in, because I’m the owner of the pageant and therefore I’m inspecting it,” Trump said... “‘Is everyone OK’? You know, they’re standing there with no clothes. ‘Is everybody OK?’ And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.”
