    Clinton/Warren would be a formidable ticket.

    Doesn't mean I'd vote for it, but it'd be formidable.

    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.

    Greetings, SlevinKelevra.

    When a POTUS has served his term(s), if he has done a good job, the VP will have grown older and gained knowledge in the meantime, too, so if the people feel they have been treated fairly during that time, they will likely not wish to switch for someone new.

    As an example, FDR and Eisenhower could have been returned to office many more times if it were possible to do so, IMO - they were that well liked by the people, who felt they did a good job. It wasn't the party they belonged to that made the difference - it was the man himself.

    During the recent midterms, we saw that millions of people overwhelmingly voted for change from the status quo - it will now be up to the new people who were elected to follow the voters' mandate. Pocketbook issues and jobs have become more important to the voters than anything else, it appears, in all levels of society, from the poor to the wealthy. Time will tell us what the results will be.

    Hillary & Bill Clinton, President and Vice President.Now that would be a sight to see in the USA.

    Just curious why you think that it would be formidable?

    Each has their base of supporters, and if the two bases could be combined it would be significant.

    Plus, an all-female ticket would play well, especially if both women are "respected" (such as it is). The media would eat that right up, and for good or for bad many average voters are still swayed by the media.

    Thanks.

    They do have their bases but I don't think their bases are large enough even when combined. The media would like it but I think it would be a hard sell for most Americans, and I think the moderates would stay home in droves.

    Probably less formidable than Clinton/anyone-else-of-merit.

    All dems need to get 100% of the liberal vote is to have a democrat to vote for, and all they need to do to get close to 100% of the women swing vote is to a woman. Having two democrat women on the ticket adds no additional voting sector.

    Regardless, if either of those candidates was on the ticket, that ticket would get all of the voters who have a propensity to vote for a woman democrat. In otherwords, either of those candidates would gain 100% of the base for both of them, so having both on the same ticket adds nothing.

    I assume that Warren is perceived as being quite a bit more liberal than Clinton (maybe I'm wrong about that), but Clinton is liberal enough for nearly all democrats, that if she is on any ticket in the general election, she would still bring in the far lefties.

    Ironically, Republicans are now looking to fall in love, while Democrats are now looking to nominate the person whose "turn" it is.

    I would have no problem voting for Warren, but if Hilary is on the ticket, it's a no-go.
    Hilary is responsible for the debacle in Libya. It has created a deathly morass for
    millions of people. It was done under false pretenses as much as Iraq and I've had
    enough of lies.
