    You know, I have some rather mixed feelings about the idea of Queen (King?) Hillary as President. But unlike Obama, as President she’d no doubt kick Tea Bagger butt and give those sorry wacko birds something to actually complain about.

    In January 2007, Hillary was considered inevitable. Best not to count your votes before the votes are counted. Voters may be even less interested in establishment candidates (from both parties) this time around.

    237 years ago, we started the Revolutionary War so we wouldn’t have to put up with hereditary dynasties. Did we learn NOTHING from our 8 years under Bush the Lesser? Do you really want to wake up in November of 2024 to find out whether you’re spending the next 4 years under Chelsea or Jenna? 315 million people to choose from, and only 2 families are ever considered for the nation’s top job? What’s wrong with this picture?

    I’m sorry, but what has she done to indicate that she has grabbed the crown? The media is pushing it, not her.

    I would like to see a listing that shows to what extent politics has become a form of “family business.” Let the list show (lest it become encyclopedic in length) all politicians with family members that have hold, or have held, office above the level of state representative, going back for two generations or more.
    .
    Obviously, a social class of professional politicians has steadily developed, starting nearly from the beginning of our country. We tend to sneer at monarchies in other countries, but isn’t our political class becoming a form of hereditary royalty? Is it a bad thing? Does this contribute to our present problems? Should something be done about it? I suspect this family hand-off of political offices occurs most frequently at state and county levels.
    .
    The father-to-son situation was bad enough, then it started to become father-to-son-to-grandson. Now, it’s becoming husband-to-wife? It just seems Not Right. Is there anything in early national political writings that speaks to this?

    She says she has not made up her mind. She will run, she has no choice, the establishment and the media demands it. Media ratings and content are what is important.

    The huge anchor of which you speak is more likely to sink the Republicans, if they continue to obsess on the non-issues.

    I knew that, obviously. The Harrison’s were grandfather-grandson. The Roosevelts were distant cousins. Let’s not have any more.
    .
    Our candidate pool is big enough now that it shouldn’t happen, shouldn’t be allowed to happen. And a wife following her husband in presidential office — I consider that ridiculous, and it doesn’t matter who it is.
    .
    And I’d respect Jeb Bush if he did not run. All in all, these sorts of situations seem to me like political incest, bad for the country in the long run.

    Yes, it’s Chris Christie who is already campaigning for 2016, not Hillary. I fully expect her to, but heck, it’s three years away. (More of an Elizabeth Warren fan, myself.)

    @Uncle Joe

    I dunno… With people like Melowese Richardson who voted 6 times for Obama (in 1 election) Hillary is a cinch to win!

    Some folks here seem to like the idea of Elizabeth Warren for President. Nope. Won’t happen. She’s sane, mostly.

    ^^ The attack on the consulate is not a non-issue. The Republican interpretation and so-called coverup should be a non-issue because it is pure political spin.

    “….I sincerely hope we do not ever see another President Clinton…..”
    .
    You would instead prefer a Bush or a McCain, or a Dole, or a Romney?
    .
    How would you compare Clinton’s qualifications up against those of Cruz, Rubio, or Rand Paul? In comparison, Clinton’s qualifications are exemplary. Her so-called bagage is largely Republican created.
    .
    So far as America’s International reputation is concerned, it is far higher now than any time in recent memory. You would have to go back to Bill Clinton to get a similar standing.

    I’m a moderate. If you want to see Republican moderates turn to the dark side faster than Superman folds on laundry day then run Hillary as your candidate. I can only hope that Tigger is right and she’ll stay out of the fray. . . forever. No more dynasties!
