    Hillary Running Mate?

    Despite my lack of empathy with the Democratic Party and its politics, I still find myself captivated by the 2016 race. As we can all agree, the GOP is a cluster**** and the Democratic Nomination may as well go to Hillary Clinton right now. With that in mind, I have been thinking, in terms of political moves, who makes the best VP for Hillary in a Presidential run?

    Note: I include Bill Clinton because he technically can have two more years in the WH, if for some reason he was called upon to serve longer, his VP would simply step up and take the reigns.

    This poll, top to bottom, including Hillary Clinton, shows just how bereft of talent and leadership qualities the Democrat Party today truly is.

    Assuming she pulls off the nomination, she should ask Elizabeth Warren to consider the idea.

    If this elitist 1%er with offshore bank accounts wins the nomination, then the Dem party has proven to be total hypocrites (which we already knew).

    I'm going with "other".

    My best guess is that Hillary will choose either Whoopie Goldberg or Ellen Degeneres. She'll want someone who appeals to her base without being a threat to her office and both of those picks fit the bill. On top of that Bill doesn't seem to have much of a thing for black chicks and Ellen doesn't roll that way so she can avoid any embarrassment along those lines.

    My immediate thought is a fresh face / junior politician. Who? IDK.

    I think Mom and Pop show would be cool. And he would be doing a first, I think, having been President.

    Rasputin is dead, so I'm going with Rosie O'Donnell.

    Don't say that. They have Kerry.
