    Far more important.

      Schweitzer will not Hillary Clinton's VP in 2016.

      “There’s a whole lot of America that looks at each other and says, ‘Well, there’s 340 million people living in America. Isn’t there somebody other than a Bush or a Clinton who can be president in these modern times? Isn’t there hope for somebody who’s running a business or who has served overseas or comes from a different occupation to become president? Are we now in the era of royalty again?’ So I think there’s some level of frustration about that.”

      •  That would be the line against her (0+ / 0-)

        But not from someone to her right.

          There is no way Hillary Clinton would pick someone publicly saying that as her VP, and it would be highly unlikely he would accept the VP slot if he really does have those views.

            There is a very affective response to that. Something like, "Yes, his name is Barack Obama and don't I know it!"

          •  I'm not sure Hillary is as vengeful (0+ / 0-)

            as you think, or that she might not have learned from Obama's example of picking someone who ran against him for VP and hiring her for Secretary of State. If she really wants to win, she needs to be politically smarter than she was before.

        This is the talk she'd get from Christie, or any Repub for that matter not named Jeb in any GE.

          I find it a bit weak. Are people really going to reject somebody they agree with on issues and admire just because of her surname and her husband? I doubt it. Obama's job approval and the economy matter far more.

            And she can point out where she came from, growing up, her home life.  Point to how she went to school to make something of herself and she did and is.  Point to her resume as a US Senator and Sec of State and double dog dare any man to claim she wasn't qualified for either but only got them because of who she was married to.

        •  Christie versus Schweitzer... (5+ / 0-)

          Would be kind of a funny race optically, since they are both overweight white guys who are known for being unusually blunt politicians and coming across as "down-to-earth."

        take him out of the running.
