    It makes no sense whatsoever.

    For 60 years the United States has lived in so much abject fear of a tiny island of 11 million people as to maintain an illegal military base and impose illegal sanctions on a people who have never attacked the US...in fact have been attacked several times.

    For 60 years one administration after another has kept the name "Castro" in hated disrepute, a name synonimous in the US with Idi Amin, Saddam Hussein and Mohamar Khadafi.,


    Considering how gutter driven has become American politics, especially since Obama, I would say any idiot can make the Clintons out to be terrorist loving communists.

    A Castro a heart beat away from the presidency! I love it

    The USA has already had all of the Bush's in the White House that it will ever have.

    Wait and see.

    I have more faith in the intelligence of the American people - if the race comes down to Bush/Clinton, I'm quite confident the American people will make the "right" choice this time.

    Wendy Davis? Not in a million years, for a lot of reasons.

    IMO part of it will depend on how Hillary will position herself. Will she be a moderate Midwesterner who once supported Goldwater? Will she be a moderate Arkansasian (what is the right term for them anyway?)? Will she be a liberal Northeasterner? I think once that's hammered out, that will help the committee who will recommend potential running mates.

    I don't think she will pick Biden no matter which way she goes. I can see her picking a moderate Hispanic man from the south or west if she decides to be a Liberal New Yorker. Or I could see her pick a Bernie Sanders type if she's looking to be a moderate from the Midwest or the South.

    If she choses one of them (which is possible), and her opponent is Jeb, the Hispanics will feel like wishbones very quickly with the way they will be vying for the votes.

    I wonder who is going after the boring old white person vote?

    Well, in 2008, Obama was half-black, and McCain had a black daughter. Who picked up the black vote?

    They won't. Look for them to run heavy Castro across the purple areas they think Hispanics can swing. It probably won't even be unusual for low-information Hispanics to think he is the Presidential Candidate.

    They will, and that choice won't be Bush.

    Wait and see. 2016 is right around the corner.

    The GOP's base is old white men.

    That's a shrinking demographic, btw.

    I wonder if the blacks will come out in droves in support of Hillary the way they did Obama?

    I agree with your point about the black daughter versus the man who had a black father (sperm donor actually). It didn't help McCain. I guess it wasn't "historic" enough for people. Not enough hope and change and all that.
