    Change will not come if we wait for some other person or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we've been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.

      •  He can't be, but the thought is nice. (6+ / 0-)

        He might well be an advisor with Hillary, though.  I opposed Hillary in 2008, mostly because of Iraq, but I am less opposed to her in 2016 than I might have been.  12 years of Dem rule with her building on Obamaa as first woeman president would be good.  If Hillary can make peace with left progressives, at least some peace, there might be a grand coalition as with Obama.  Time will tell.

        I'm glad Barack Obama is our President.

          Too much bad blood about the Clintons.

          She has totally proven herself however, and I would be behind her 100% in 2016 if she chooses to run.

        •  actually, I looked it up. (0+ / 0-)

          According to a Cornell law professor, Bill Clinton could run as veep. The prohibition is on electing a president for more than two terms.

          Would the internet lie?!?

          I don't know, really, if a former two-term president can run for veep, but everything I read about it, several sources, said it is within constitutional law.
