  •  There is growing opposition on policy (8+ / 0-)

    I'm not going vote for Hillary on good will alone because my store of good will towards the Democratic Party has about run out and if there is anything Hillary represents it is the establishment Democratic Party

    There isn't a lot of good will going on around the country either so it's an assumption that people are going to reward the Democratic Party in 2016.

      and I do believe Hillary will be the last stand of reform vs. . . . something else.

      Her presidency will show, finally, whether our current political climate is redeemable (and whether we have just had a lackluster CIC) or not.

      •  I'll Probably Write This 100 Times Before 2016 (10+ / 0-)

        Hillary Clinton looks strong in the polls because she's a Democrat with 100% name recognition. Whoever the Democrats nominate in 2016 is likely to be an easy winner if he or she is not tainted by too-close association with President Obama. Let's nominate a true progressive, like Sherrod Brown, Elizabeth Warren, or Sheldon Whitehouse, and not another corporate Wall Street Democrat.

          ...and even if they did, they'd be at a severe disadvantage.  Wall Street and co would go apeshit over a choice like that and spend every dime from their Cayman accounts to stop them.  

          But, you never know.  Sherrod Brown would be a very politically attractive VP candidate.  With national recognition, he could get a nice shot 8 years later.

        •  McGovern Only Lost 49-States in 1972. (0+ / 0-)

          But later, another liberal won his home state at least, losing all 49-that weren't though. Yes, nominate a liberal in 2016...probably the only way the GOP could win.

        at the grocery and right there on the front page it says that Obama plans 4 tiers for Medicare benefit costs with 25% of Americans paying more.

        What did we get about 2% paying more when they repealed a sliver of the Bush tax cuts?

        I am so at the Democratic Party now, if there is primary candidate named NO she will have my vote.
