    I don't think she still has the "fire in the belly" to go through the torture of a looooooong campaign for the presidency. I think she's worn out from a life in politics. But, who knows ? Maybe, after a break of a couple of years, she'll feel like going for it. I hope so.

    I don't know about that. Women don't always support women. I would love to see the stats on that. I remember many women saying that they would forever be angry with her for taking Bill back. But who knows how long 'forever' is to the women who said that.

    All those women will want to be alive when the first woman becomes president.

    I would love to see the Clintons back in the White House. Hillary would make a fine Madame President. Bill would be brilliant as our first "First Gentleman".

    May I be honest in this forums? I'm quite frightened for Hillary 2016, I personally have no reason to trust her just as I have no reason to trust Obama. I like to call myself a libertarian-left and usually hate big, oppressive governments like what Obama is running now, but don't worry I'm no anarchist.

    Part of the reason I reject supporting Obama is that while people love him and his party for progressive ideals (such as gay marriage, marijuana, etcetera) people are often ignorant of his more...oppressive policies such as the NDAA, kill list, drone wars, etc. and with this I have no liking for a government that kills innocent men, women and children, sorry to put it bluntly.

    I don't think Hillary would be any different considering she is pro-war, believes that the biggest victims of war are women and children who have lost husbands, and laughed at the death of Gaddafi (never liked him anyway but I could never imagine laughing about it), etc. I think my biggest concern is people voting for her because they think it will be "progressive" and be totally ignorant to her flaws and bad policies like most Obama supporters are.

    Not trying to offend anyone, I'm still young and have so much more to learn but I thought I'd put in my two cents. icon_smile.gif

    Now that the GOP has spent the last two decades sh*tting on every minority group, they won't be winning any elections for years to come. I think Hillary would be a very formidable candidate, but what's more important is that the Republicans have shot themselves in the face with the relentless immigrant bashing, gay-hate campaigns, war on women, etc.
    The demographics are not there for them to win in 2016, or for the foreseeable future. The Latino vote alone basically sinks any chances for the GOP.
    Either they change their tune dramatically, or the party will cease to exist outside a few states in the deep South.
