    That's one of his upsides - he's pretty much already been nationally vetted.

If the GOP nominates a viable candidate like Scott Walker, she will suddenly bow out for health reasons and say she wants to spend more time with her granddaughter. I don't think she will risk humiliation.

    The fading of a dream is difficult, the fading of a dream tasted is a bitter event and the realization comes slowly. For four, at least, of the six years we have had Obama, they have been whistling past the grave yard. Barrack Hussein Obama is such a very gifted speaker and debater, they bought his act, or believed the people had. 2010 was, I said then, a wake up call that ultimately went unheeded, then completely ignored when Obama manipulated a second term......

    but they missed the part where the voter said "OK, we like you better than the other guy, but we want some restraints. here's more "enemies" to deal with....and it is there where the dream goes from almost real to a fog slowly burning off the mountain. And, as noted they didn't wake up then, Obama went "pen and phone" and boldly provoked yet another fight....

    And down goes Humpty.....instead of a Clinton turn around, one of the most popular presidents to leave office in history, a lesson not learned and more damage to the brand.

    Now, anyone attached to that, anyone who served in it, is suspect, guilt by association...as the political winds shift yet again, as they have since the first cave man figured out he could get more to eat if he "led"...

    Now Hillary, serving so close to the presidency, tasting it, and now a chancy thing for her to brag on her record, she has a machine.....only a machine, force without substance. If she thinks she can win, she will run, which will be pretty much what I would want if I were managing the Republicans. It is lot harder to score off a fresh face than an old hag who has been in front of the US electorate for a quarter century. She is, in fact, too well known now....like an unwanted wart

    They bleat like pigs to the slaughter; "old news".....when it is anything over a week old dealing with the Obama administration.

    That's unhealthy to say the least. At this point, I read Sarah Palin and I hear ignorant and desperate

    As I have been saying for some time, the obsessive attraction she and others, Ted Cruz for example, tend to indicate the left has nothing of substance to offer. What other failed vice presidential candidate gets that much attention? And why, at this point, should anyone care? The truth is she was an easy hatchet job, her many 'sins' so well known, it is safe ground for those not quite in touch, say something between a Gruber and tin foil hats....

    And that is the essence of the continuing smear. Without her, without something to look down on, they cannot look up to themselves. It is becoming increasingly evident that so long as the focus is on a tabloid figure, no one will look to close at the man behind the curtain.

    However, there is no man behind the curtain, just more curtain...and that is too frightening to accept.

    Well, she won't be able to blame the Republicans if she doesn't win, and if she even mentions Bush, that will open up a canyon of questions she won't want to answer since she has been a large part of the current administration, and she did vote to invade Iraq. Maybe she could hint at a "2-fer," but Bill has health problems too. A lot might depend on her who VP pick might be, though...A Hispanic, as an example might help her. She could also tout "you'd be electing the first woman POTUS" card, too. Why anyone in either party
    would want to be POTUS at this time in history totally escapes me, but who knows?

    Thats clear, they have already lost the war of ideas so they have moved into typical reality show fare.

    What they are good at, is rhetoric and on occasion winning elections.

    VP choices don't win elections, they can make them easier to win.

    But you hit the nail on the head and my point, she will be too closely associated with the Obama era, coupled as you noted her errors as Senator. What she will be remembered for is as First Lady. And in that regard, those who love her and would only vote for her on gender she leads. But neither will add any voters to her cause.

    She is in a war against attrition. She ruled the polls as the next in line, the heir apparent for four plus years. But the heir to a sewer is still just a sewer owner and the American people are tired of stink.

    When you have good government you get dynasties. Here, the Liberals have been in power since 2000 and just gained seats electing a women, not the first woman to be premier, but the first to be elected in a general election.

    You have not had "good government". Good government is one you hardly hear from, relatively free of controversy, division and dispute. Obama has governed as though the goal is controversy, division and dispute.

    And Hillary has been an eager part of that, an unquestioning supporter of Obamacare and the author of "regime change" in Libya, which isn't exactly working out so well.

    A Republican win is dependent on that being evident to the voter. To do that, Republicans will have to stop waring against Obama and get much more pro-active than they have been in the idea department, or at least do a job of any kind in letting someone know they have ideas.

    They will need a new battle plan for Islamic terrorists.

    They will need a workable program for dealing with illegals, and to do that they must act to stop the flow as a priority, make it stick before they will have any acceptance on any amnesty. They will have to avoid that word, LOL.

    They will need a clear plan to get the economy back on a footing with some substance.

    And they will have to at least, begin a dialogue on creating a real, workable health insurance scheme.

    Otherwise, the meme of not having no alternate plans of their own will stick.

    Actually, an independent by definition is not a partisan.

    You've never questioned my objectivity when I have question Hillary's candidacy or expressed opposition to the possibility of her being in the White House. You never called me a partisan when I said I would never vote for her.
