    i'm not ready to call the race when one of them hasn't even officially declared his candidacy and no one has voted. a lot can happen between now and the primaries.

Clinton, quite frankly, has the affability of an ant. She fails the "I'd have a beer with her" test in about sixty-seven different ways.

    Edit: anonymous polls are stupid.

    If it ends up Hillary v. Jeb, I'll vote third party again.

    Exactly, and of course admittedly, we're using the term loosely, but it does seem apropos.

(Even though she wouldn't remember half of it and wouldn't have a clue how the other half happened other than she would be sure it wasn't her fault.)

    What I can say for Jeb Bush is that I would have to hold my nose to vote for him, but not as tightly as I had to do to vote for McCain.
    Exactly, aren't we sick of holding our noses and voting??

    Agreed, but I think it is 68.

    Well it doesn't seem to happen to the Democrats as they don't seem to expect anything of their candidates other than they are reasonable leftwing and have a D after their name. Character, track record, accomplishments, demonstrated ability to get things done etc. don't seem to matter much.

    But until the people who vote GOP, regardless of how they self-identify, develop a backbone and are willing to demonstrate strength of character and conviction by standing up and speaking out for what they want and expect from those we entrust with leadership, I fear we will continue to 'settle' for a vanilla flavor that gives everybody just a little of what they say they want but can't or won't deliver on the campaign rhetoric. And that means holding our noses when we vote.
