    2016 Democratic Presidential Primary

    So there is a pretty popular thread where posters are discussing their likely choices for a Republican nominee. Thought I'd start one for the Democrats. So, here we are. Who do you favor to win the 2016 Democratic primary?

    Webb has the best chance of winning a general election-for the primary that might hurt him since he won't appeal to the extremists-especially the anti male vote that hates his pro gun pro military credentials

    warren is too extreme, Cuomo too "ethnic" and biden is a moron.

    Re: 2016 Democratic Presidential Primary

    I chose Sanders and Webb because of their strong civil libertarian leanings. Plus both of them are rather sane on foreign policy compared to Biden and Clinton. Webb probably has a better chance of winning the general election between the two of them because he's left of center economically while Sanders is far-left. A country this firmly entrenched on the economic right will not elect a democratic socialist. Just a fact.

    Out of all the primary candidates, Clinton has the best chance for both the primary and the general, an unfortunate truth. Webb is a runner-up in regards to general election chances IMO, but will likely not win the primary. He's 1.5% to Clinton's 63%. He's the Ron Paul of the Democratic Party so to speak. A damn good candidate that will, sadly, never see the White House due to party politics.

    I'm not a Democrat, but I still see Warren as having the better chance to secure the nomination.

    Nah. Clinton has the star power, Clinton has the money, and Clinton has the contacts. To continue my analogy to the 2012 Republican primaries, Clinton is the Mitt Romney of the 2016 primary. She's favored to win by those with the power and the money to make it happen.

    Perhaps but Clinton also has the political baggage. Arguably, Republicans will have to negative campaign against Clinton in an entirely different way dealing with Warren. My thinking is Warren will force Republicans to campaign on ideology and issues stance and not near as much as prior actions. Clinton on the other hand, most of the Republican campaign can be about her past going back to her time in Arkansas.

    I was impressed by what a weak field it is. Biden would be entertaining but not taken seriously. I believe Clinton's time has passed in the general however she has enough star power to get the nomination. Sanders and Warren are goofballs. Webb is relatively unknown. although I know a little about him. I don't know who O'Malley is and Cuomo is a jerk. Democrats could use some new blood.

    Meh. Warren will be seen as too extreme in the general. This country is firmly entrenched on the right and only centrist or conservative Democrats will get the White House. Once upon a time more left-leaning candidates could snag it but that was before the totalitarians across the ocean spoiled left-wing economics and made everyone afraid of the commies. All the GOP has to do is point at Warren and say "socialist" and she's done. Sad reality. Clinton is a right-winger with deep pockets. She has both races in the bag. Webb is the only one, IMO, that would have somewhat of a chance either way, but then again we thought the same of Ron Paul and Jon Huntsman for the GOP. Webb, like Huntsman and Paul, is dry as the Sahara desert when it comes to money. And he's not exactly all that politician-ish either. He's too...real.

    Idk, anything is possible, but I stand by my original prediction for Clinton. It sucks, but it's reality. Hopefully I'm wrong.

    It's Hillary's to lose.

    She has the momentum, the recognition, the machine and the centrist policies that will win in the national.
    I see Liz as her Sec. of State or possibly her AG ... nothing more.

    That's actually an interesting question.

    I figure that if Hilary runs then she'll more or less be unopposed. Maybe Cuomo or Sanders will step in just for effect. However, if Hilary decides to back off then Warren will probably be the top choice and I figure that several others will jump in as well. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see Bill Richardson play a role in that scenario. He wouldn't win but he would draw Latino votes that, presumably, would transfer to Warren when he stepped out. Cuomo make take a stab at it but if he did so it would only be as a trial run for 2020. My understanding is that he isn't progressive enough for most of the Democrat base and, due to the SAFE Act, he'll lose a whole lot of independents.
