    Republican, mostly because that is the biggest ball of clay. By the time it comes around the tea party fad would have died off so it will be interesting to see what they do.

    Dems or Reps?

    They both have the potential to be wide-open, with no incumbents.
    From a personal stand point? The Republicans, because it's the one where a two party candidate I'll likely vote for will come from.

    From a political science stand point? The Republicans, unless Hillary doesn't run. If Hillary doesn't run, then the Democrats. Right now, the Republicans have more ambiguity in who will win it, so I find that intriguing to watch. If Hillary is not there, I have NO CLUE who would end up coming out of the Democrats side and as such would find it amazingly interesting to watch.

    The Democratic party will be the most interesting, since it will be to replace Obama, and most likely the next President. The Republican party could be interesting should it include Rand Paul, but it will sink into the same boring shrill once the establishment and neo-cons take hold and try to sell us the same old "war against the world," no debt is good debt unless its war debt," and "Jesus is with us," philosophy. I have always been a Republican, and never voted Democrat, but I just might this time around after 36 years.

    Republican. Mostly because it's going to be a knock-down, drag-out, no-holds-barred BRAWL from start to finish. The Establishment/Centrist Republicans are going to do everything they can to ensure no Conservative Republican candidate has any chance to win. The Tea Party and its members are going to push for their preferred candidate. Conservative Republicans will push for their candidate. If the TP and the Conservatives can't get on board the same ship, they will die just like the last two Presidential election cycles. IF they can get together they may pose a significant thread to the Establishment group. IF the Establishment group wins the candidacy for their side, then the Republicans have no chance in the 2016 Presidential election as many in their own party will not support the candidate.

    On the other hand the Democratic Party will get on board with whatever Liberal/Socialist nutbag the majority of the party supports in the first few primaries.

    Ha-ha! So, I guess Rick Santorum would have beaten Obama by a landslide, has the GOP establishment not prevented him from taking the nomination. Interesting you don't mention the libertarians.

    We'll never get to know what Santorum would or wouldn't have done against Obama. The Libertarians are simply part of the Centrist/Establishment GOP. They are NOT Conservatives and never will be. What the last two Presidenetial election cycles should be showing the GOP is that Conservative Republicans and those of us in the Independent Right-Wing are NOT going to support a Centrist/Liberal Republican on the national stage. Nor can they count on cross-over Democrats or Centrist Independents to make up for that loss. Is the GOP really stupid enough to make that mistake three cycles in a row?

If I were an American, I'd be rooting for Hillary - how much more experience could a candidate possibly have? She's be the most qualified President-elect in US history.
    Please name one person elected as POTUS that had past "experience" at being POTUS. I can think of none.

    None of the above. I will not vote for Hillary as she is a a carbon copy of the corporate puppet, Obama. And with the Republicans, I see another batch of clowns running.

    This is the year where a third party needs to be heard from.

    There's a very high likelihood that I'll end up voting Independent/Third Party in 2016 as well, since I see the Republican Party making the same mistake this time that they've made the last two Presidential elections.
