    If she decides to run, I will send my meager pocket change her way immediately.  If she doesn't, I will have to wait and see how the primaries sort out.

      prominent DLC candidate, and that's what Hillary is.  She's better than a lot of the other DLC folks, but it's good to remember that one of the reasons she lost in 2008 was because Obama was to her left.  Her support for the Iraq war won't help her any either.  She didn't in fact make it through the gauntlet in the primaries.

      •  What we need is a good President (0+ / 0-)

        And HRC would be a good President.  At this point, the IRaq war is over.  I am willing to forgive that vote, in part because the Bushies knowingly lied to get the Senate to approve the AMF.

        In 2008 I supported Dodd because he voted against the FISA bill.  After he exited, I supported Obama.  But that was 2008.  We are talking about 2016, and I can think of no one who is more experienced or who has the proper temprament for the job.  If she runs, she will have both my vocal and monetary support.
