    the specifics of the diary or comments. But if it's about questioning whether or not Hillary may not actually be the best choice for next President -- as thoroughly entrenched as she is in an entrenched in an establishment of vested interests that created this mess and refuse to clean it up any time soon -- then I'd like to say I agree with the line of questioning. As it turns out, Obama is as much of a centrist as Hillary (and Bill) -- at least to date -- and that has resulted in far less change than we need on the Class, Terror and especially Climate War. So why would we want another President who would likely be too serious to suggest dealing with real imminent threats as imminent threats, and not treating as imminent threats those people who are trying to expose the imminent threats?

    If the question is about whether Hillary is technically, of course she is. If the question is whether or not Bill bought her "right" to be the nominee, that's speculation, but it certainly seems plausible. He was pretty dang instrumental last year. He's shrewd. Hard too imagine he didn't collect a stack of chips on that. And it certainly crossed my mind that it might have to do with clearing the path for another chance for Hillary.

    Barring total catastrophe over the next three years, Hillary would have a very good chance of winning, considering her stature and the state of public opinion on issues and the Republican Party. But, barring an amazing turn-around during that time on the Class, Terror and Climate Wars, she probably is not the best candidate for ruler of the free world. That person would be serious about saving the planet on its own terms, which would mean first putting the fossil fuel plutocracy in its place and then slashing the carbon footprint of defense, government in general, and business.

    The Class, Terror and Climate Wars are indivisible and the short-term outcome will affect the planet for centuries. -WiA "When you triangulate everything, you can't even roll downhill..." - PhilJD
