    I have always thought that. There isn't a thing to base that thought on. But Hillary is not Bill, she does not have his Charisma and charm. She does not have the ability to connect with the people like Bill had. She also can come across as aloof and snobbish. Sort of a know it all.

    I think she knows she will have a hard time among independents. I think she wants to keep personal things personal. She has been through Whitewater, Paula Jones, Monica, Benghazi and much more. This e-mail controversy is just the latest. I think James Caravel had it right, he said Hillary just didn't want Republicans going through her e-mails is why she kept a personal e-mail account instead of a state department one. Perhaps in the end, she just ties of all the dirty laundry and muck raking.

    Still, there is nothing solid to go by. Just a hunch.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    IMO the Democrats have at this date only one strong viable option to Hillary, and that's Jim Webb.

    O'Malley is an interesting idea though.

    I think there IS a large chance that she won't run. Eight years ago she was a relatively young woman and and the energy. I don't see it now. She is flat, she speaks to the rear wall of the room and not the audience, she looks tired.

    You are right about her not being Bill, she is not even Bush. She is in fact a huge turn off, her voice is raspy, she talks down to everyone, even the "announcement' at the last news conference was telling us what's what, like a teacher half committed to the course.

    In the meantime, she is being undermined by the White House in a battle over who is in control of the party after Obama leaves, and the White House is winning.

    So, I would say she is weighing her options. She wants it more than a junkie needs a fix, but whether it's too late or not is still out there begging an answer. I say it is.

    Re: Are there any realistic Democrat Alternatives to Hillary

    Have you ever wondered what Bill feels about Hillary running or becoming president. An ex-president playing first lady so to speak. Even when Hillary was secretary of state, it was still Bill who drew the big crowds and enthusiastic responses from them. Compare that with Hilary's book tour. Bill still out shined his wife even though she held office and he didn't.

    I think if this e-mail thing heats up, she just might say to hell with it. She is getting little cover from the White House and fellow Democrats. I have always said there will be a fresh face, much like Obama was in 2008. But I don't have a thing to base that on except a gut feeling.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
