    Could she end up being the first woman to be POTUS?

    Would you vote for her?

    Discuss.

    Yeah, I'd vote for her! I think she's proven herself as secretary of state. She's smart but also compassionate, and I believe she's very grounded and won't just play the political game. She'd also work to build on Obamacare and make it even better for America. Go Hillary!icon_smile.gif

    I like Hillary too but not convinced she'll actually want the job in 2016. Something tells me she is tired and just ready to retire and enjoy life. If she wants to be president she would need to start campaigning in 2 years.

    I'd vote for her six times a day and twice on Sunday, but I don't think she'll run. icon_cry.gif

    If she does want to run, if the Dems are smart they will figure out some way for Joe Biden to step down (if Obama wins) and Obama can slide Hillary into the V.P. slot. which would be a smoother stepping stone into 2016 --- not that she necessarily would need that

    I doubt she will run. She is leaving the Obama administration after the election

    I would vote for her, but I don't think she will run. We got a taste of Democrats' up and coming talent last night, our bench is looking good for 2016 with or without Hillary I think.

    She would not run. But the first thing she would do is take you to war, just to prove the hairs on her chest run all the way down to her balls, and she can play the men's game as well as the guys.

    Hillary will be 68 during most of the campaign season of 2016 and 69 by the election. If she were elected and served eight years, she would be 77 by the time she left office. Joe Biden would be 73 during the campaign season and 74 by the time he took office if elected. If he served eight years, he would be 82 by the time he left office. Although age should not necessarily be a barrier, I am thinking the Democrats will choose someone younger.

    Republican Party calls on NBC, CNN to cancel planned Hillary Clinton programs and threatens to pull out of primary debates if the networks don't comply.

    My eyes nearly popped out of their sockets when I read the title of this article. I thought "Barbara Bush" as in the fat old harpie-demon-hag who is the real power behind the Bush ilk.

    Barbara Bush the elder. Caught in a candid moment.

    Aren't you confusing Hillary Clinton with George "Dubya" Bush?

    I would love to have the next President be somebody whose last name is not Bush or Clinton.

    I completely understand where you're coming from here, i.e., the dynasty factor. But I think at this point in history it would be entirely appropriate for a woman to be president and it would be a very uphill battle for the GOP to contest Hillary. That fuck-face Sarah Palin is not a consideration.

    You made a very good point, but then you blew your credibility with your last sentence. Why must we all be so nasty about those "on the other side" - or even view those in the other political party as completely vile people?

    Thanks for your feedback but i'm not trying to be credible, just honest. And this has nothing to do with what side or party she is from. Very few folks get my mercury rising, but Ms. Palin kinda takes the cake here. And, I'm not sure if I am angry at her complete stupidity or if i'm angrier at the loss of intelligence of Americans who put her on a pedestal (no thanks to the media, of course). The only good that came from her stint was that her stupidity got people talking about politics and the political process who had never participated in discussions. So yes, this would be the silver lining in that cloud.

    I don't think she'll get the nomination. Since she last ran she's accumulated too much baggage. If by some slim chance she should win the nomination, the next president will be a Republican.

    What baggage? I guess you failed to notice her approval rating just as she left her position as Secretary of State.

    Let's not forget that Democrats have the upper hand when it comes to getting the 270 required electoral votes. There was an article I recently read that pointed out that Democrats have a solid 91% of those votes.

    Even with all the "baggage" that Conservatives claimed would hurt President Obama's re-election chances, he still came out on top—winning the popular vote and the electoral vote by a margin close to that of his 2008 win. With the exception of North Carolina, Obama won the swing states, despite the alleged baggage.

    And you think with Hilary Clinton's high approval rating that the Benghazi incident, which is only on the mind of Conservatives, is supposed to hinder her chance?

    HILLARY CLINTON TO YOUTH: SPEAK UP FOR GAY RIGHTS AND UNIVERSAL HUMAN RIGHTS


    Said Clinton:

    "We need more voices speaking up for universal human rights. We have honored some of the great advocates here today who have spoken out courageously for women’s rights, gay rights and religious understanding, showing us that our communities and institutions are strongest when equality and opportunity are open to all people and freedom of conscience is respected.
    Here in the home of the Scottish Enlightenment and the great contributions from Scottish universities, we need to be reminded that it paved the way for much of the progress we now take for granted, not only in the West but around the world. And it is important that as we chart our way forward in this new century, we bring with it the enlightened view that every individual around the world regardless of gender, religion, race, ethnicity or orientation, should be able to contribute to their societies and to have the chance to live up to his or her God-given potential.

    We are confronting deep cultural and political differences. Change can be very wrenching and it is difficult to bridge the gaps between and within societies.human-rights/"

    How hairy and big are her balls?


    I'm sure it would've taken Big Balls to of dealt with the fallout from Bill turning the White House into the dirtiest little whorehouse in Washington, and since she is more of a man than Bill, i'm sure theres lots of hair too.
