    Re: 2016: Bush vs Clinton

    How exactly is both halves of a husband and wife team holding elected office a dynasty? Dynasties are about passing power down generations, kind of like a wealthy entrepreneur who used his wealth and power to get into government and then to get his son into the senate, who then used his wealth and power to get his son into government and eventually into the presidency, who then used his wealth and power to get his son into government and eventually into the presidency. If we were talking about Chelsea Clinton being president, then "dynasty" might be an appropriate way to refer to the Clintons, but in this instance, it only applies to the Bushes, who have been an aristocratic family for over a century.

    Personally I'd pick Warren over Hillary, but Hillary's the one who would win the election...and I've got two "Hillary" signs in my basement waiting for me to bring them out....

    Dynasties are rulers from the same family. It is NOT limited to passing rule down through generations.

    Why are you talking about the Kennedy family in a thread about the Bush/Clinton matchup in 2016?
    A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.

    This thread should be titled "Which one sucks less". Hillary is a nightmare and the best thing I can say about Bush is that he's not Huckabee or Lindsay Graham.
