From what I am hearing on the news, Hillary is definitely the Candidate to
beat in 2016, and it is a done deal.

I was not aware that it had been decided already or even if she has
announced her candidacy.

If this is correct, she will be a difficult candidate to oppose with her
give away liberal policies. And she is a mean person to boot which
is not brought out in the news.

Is this correct, and have I missed something.

As someone put it, she is the "Anointed One." rolling eyes The cream of the crop sinks to the bottom in Presidential politics. The very best of both parties want nothing to do with the job, and that's a shame. In my never-to-be-humble opinion, Senator Robert Dole was the last highly qualified man to be nominated for President.

Let's not forget she was also the anointed one in 2008 and look what we got instead.

Personally, I put her chances of actually being in the presidential race (on election day) at about 50/50.

I know she appears to be (once again) the favorite and uncontested candidate, but I think that may well change.


Just a few things to consider, in no particular order:
1) She will be about 69-70 years old if/when she were to take office. Why would any sane person want to commit to running the U.S. for four years at that age.... But then, she isn't particularly sane (IMHO). I would think that there could be more personally-fulfilling things to do at that time of one's life....But I could be wrong.

2) I have a suspicion that she may have (or will have) serious health problems that may not yet be apparent to the public (or even to her). After the Bengazi mess and at other times when she was globe-trotting around the world.... Just my humble opinion, but she looked horrible (health-wise). Perhaps she just physically won't be up to the non-stop tasks of campaigning and then running the country. In equestrian terms... It looked like she was "rode hard and put away wet" (not a sexist joke) >>> www.wisegeek.com

3) She will be a new and first-time grandmother. Perhaps she will find it more rewarding to spend time as a grandmother than running a country. I sure hope so.


Perhaps I am hoping against hope, or perhaps it is wishful thinking. I hope that she chooses #3 and soon we won't have to hear from her again.

I think someone like Jeb Bush could bet her. He's more moderate and can get more votes that way --- he's also immigration friendly.... following in G.W.'s footsteps. Add some women friendly policies - and we might have a win.

Peter: Where is your picture? How can I respond to you without your face looking
at me?

Anyway, Hillary is not the "Cream of the Crop." She is just a calculating,
cunning, devious person, with a big ego.

Friends of my Father knew her early on when she went to Arkansas, courting
Mr. Clinton. They said she was a witch then, and I think she still is.

She is an ambitious person. And so close to being President.

Hi Marianne,

Hillary has serious and increasing problems. Her approval is at early '08 levels and IMHO dropping. Her age and medical history will receive increasing scrutiny. There are several fiascos from her time at State which will, in the new Congress, be making headlines. Just me, I feel that there is at best a 50 % possibility that she will even run.

The way Obama got in the White House in his first term, is the way Bill Clinton
took the White House away from Bush. They went at it from the bottom up
and left no stone unturned.

Hillary is very smart and has a lot of followers. But your reasoning about
how she lost to Obama in 2008, lets me feel a little better. She was beaten
once already.
