    I think you meant 2006. And, primaries are usually over by July not November. And Obama won the nomination on the power of superdelegates, somethin going on right this moment unofficially .

    Many people claim that Republicans botched their chances at winning the election because of all the dirt that surfaced against Romney in the primary. Hillary was smart enough to know that if she ran in 2012 she would have lost against Obama and Obama would have lost against Romney. She's a very gifted politician. She has just been extremely unlucky.
    Yes, I fully understand the damage that can do to a sitting president. I was NOT suggesting a primary challenge from Clinton but a voluntary pledge from Obama not to run in 2012 allowing Clinton to have the field relatively to herself. She would have been stronger pulling in down ticket candidates for the party.

    If I'm not mistaken, Ron Paul was usually a big winner at CPAC before he retired and I'm pretty sure Perry did well there at times. By the way, how did Dole, McCain and Romney do on the CPAC straw polls - not sure CPAC was around for Dole, but definitely for McCain and Romney - did CPAC ever pick the eventual Republican nominee?

    So again, this lowly Canadian seems to know a little more about US Republican/conservative politics than you, the die-hard supporter of all things liberal/Democrat. It is noted, however, that Democrats like you love to plan out the Republican nomination process and results and yet Republicans never give the Democrat nomination process two minutes of their time. Why's that?

    Actually, I thought I was denigrating and making fun of what you posted - slagging Rachel Maddow was just a side benefit.

    Now you want to dig yourself in deeper? You saying she has only 6 viewers wasn't a shot at her? I think Ron Kessler of the Washington Post would award you with:

    I never said it wasn't a shot at her - after all, in the post of mine you quoted, did I not say that "slagging Rachel Maddow was just a side benefit"?

    But referring to Rachel Maddow's six viewers - likely reported during sweeps week to get such a high number - I was ridiculing your suggestion that anything said on her show would define the chances of a candidate in the Republican primaries. That was hilarious and well worth ridiculing, even if poor Rachel got caught up in the chum too.

    I'm Sorry, I don't understand why the place where Paul said something makes a difference. It was on her where Rand Paul announced his intention to run for Senator from the state of Kentucky. In the process he revealed he was against the public accommodations portion of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. I could be wrong, but I don't see where anyone in this day and age could be elected President that held that view.

    Clearly, the priorities you feel are important in choosing a nominee for the Republican party are different than mine. I don't think that pronouncement, even if never properly explained, would be relevant to one tenth of one percent of the voting public. I think people would be much more interested in what Hillary Clinton was doing while four Americans were being murdered in Benghazi.

    And...yours are different than mine, that's kinda the point. While there might be no possibility of Hillary getting my vote, the same goes for Rand. After watching my senator for years, I find him completely inacceptable.

    My reasons for Hillary's unacceptance have nothing to do with the Benghazi BS...as the SOS could not have prevented it without psychic ability.
