    Re: 2016 - if it comes down to Clinton vs. Bush

    My husband and I share similar views, but we are in no way comparable. Perhaps some actual Clinton experience, namely having Bill to bounce ideas off of, may not be too bad and goes to Hillary's credit more so than he lame show as Sec of State.
    As for Jeb, again, my siblings and I have much in common, but we hardly can be compared when making decisions. Here again, some experience from someone who is easily accessible may be beneficial.
    A side by side comparison, Jeb gets my vote for actually having leadership experience. What does Hillary have to offer?
    I do agree with many here who are wondering why we don't have other and more capable potential leaders. Time will tell, I am not worried yet and it won't change anything if I did.
    Its time for everyone to look more closely at 3rd party options.

    Based on actual results, Bill Clinton is a much better resource to have than anyone in the Bush family.

    No, I would say that is a fantastic argument against and concern about aristocracy. It does not matter if we are talking about a 3rd Bush in office or a 2nd Clinton, there must be somoene out there that does not represent the polarization these families clearly bring to the table. Capabilities of course comes into play, not necessarily all one or the other but it would be moronic to not see the condition we are setting ourselves up for with political family dynasty after dynasty. In a way that also applies to the Kennedy's and several other families that have found a way that through family have a foot in the door to the political scene.

    That's how Obama got into the White House back in 2008.

    10% of Republicans stayed at home because McCain won the Republican Presidential nomination.

    I see it more in line with the way that hollywood recycles old movie franchises rather than actually making new compelling films.

    Name recognition and a built in audience are cheaper than promoting something unknown.

    No problem for me. I am a Green. It doesn't mean I automatically vote for the Green candidate, but a third party is always one of my options. I liked Jill Stein in the last election.

    If you do not like Bush or Clinton, then register and vote in either the Republican or Democratic primary. If you don't that 15% is going to decide whom will be running in 2016. Don't vote in the primaries, you really do not have anything to complain about as to whom ends up on the ballot for 2016.
    I agree with your post and will continue to do my part in the primaries.

    I understand where you're coming from.

    I voted against McCain in those primaries - voted for him in the general election, so my conscience is clean there.

    One of the hardest decisions I ever made - to not vote for Bob Barr there - but I stand by my vote.

    I won't be voting, if it happens that way. Queen Hillary the 2nd vs. King Jeb the 3rd? LOL - thanks, but no thanks. Think I'd rather dive into a den of cobras, then have to choose between one of those clowns.

    What's scary is that it may just happen - goes to show how dumb we are becoming, imo.

    Discuss - poll soon to follow.
    I'd vote for Bush. If Cruz, Paul, Perry, Carson, etc were the GOP nominee I'd vote for Clinton.
