    How important to you is it for everyone to agree with: "As we can all agree, the GOP is a cluster**** and the Democratic Nomination may as well go to Hillary Clinton right now. "?

    not at all. If you disagree, please share.

    Julian Castro or Antonio Villaraigosa. The Latino vote is the rising influence in American politics.

    Last Time round she was looking at her good friend Evan Bayh.....but I doubt he will want to hop aboard the baggage train, this time around.

    It was a Wendy day. Hilary planned to go to a theater, a theater that was playing discounted Warner brothers movies. It was only 12:30, and the first movie didn't for another three hours. So, Hilary was just Biden time by cruising around on her Harley Davis son. Eventually she stopped at a restaurant and drank a cup of Joe, but once she got the Bill she felt cheated. In a fit of rage, Hilary drove straight to the theater and waited to see Clint on "The Outlaw Josey Wales".
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    I don't agree with any of that characterization period. But the question is valid.

    First, we have to remember Bill. Bill is shrewder than a **** house rat, and a surviver.

    She will need more than the support she has now to make the presidency so the choice will be one of appeal, how to extend her base, which I maintain is not nearly as formidable as claimed. It would be suicide to draft first another woman, or an old school insider like Biden. There is no love loss between the Clintons and the Obama camps, in fact there are some grudges left over from '08 that need settling, so Biden, Holder etc. or the ridiculous idea of Michelle Obama are out.

    Bill I don't think can serve another term as president, and he would be a fool to take the nomination, the progressives will lose their fear baiting over "dynasties" and eight more years of the two of them, if they live that long, can be made very terrifying with the right propagandist.

    The choice will be important to the party so I suspect she will play to that, select a young, talented male outsider...whoever that might be.

    But then, I am not convinced she will run. She's old...and showing it. She looks like death and sounds like gravel being crushed. She has an anger mean/anger streak that is becoming more prominent and she has more arrogance than Obama sometimes, as difficult as that is to imagine.

    She is tainted with some of Obama's worst, still has the same questions about her command of foreign policy she had in 08, perhaps greater, and she wears most of Obama's first term, including Obamacare as a funny bird around her neck.

    I hope she does, though, she is easy to write about, with many failings, gaff prone, and stiff as a cardboard figure with a steel rod up its backside.

    Tell us all about that after the 2016 election.

    I don't know. I think she is more useful where she is than she would be as VP.

    I ca see Castro as a strong candidate. Especially if the GOP can begin to appeal to the minorities.
