    that a strong woman steps up and runs.  We are trying to convince the American people to continue with what got us to here in the White House, which is a somewhat tough sale to make because the economy hasn't really improved that much.  It is far easier to make a claim that true change is needed to really get things going, even without much evidence to back that up.    A successful woman candidate can turn the election on its head and render the expected "vote for us, we produce jobs fast" - "vote for us, we are on the right track, trust us" banter almost moot because of the historic significance of such a run.

    I think HRC will run, the historic implications are just too strong of a pro-argument for her, IMO.  But, should she not we really need a strong woman to step up and run.

      I love Senator Elizabeth Warren and she close represents my views on most issues, but I worry about her electability for the typical mainstream voter.

      What do you think of DNC Chairwomen Debbie Wasserman-Schultz?  I've been pretty impressed with her many times.

      Also, I've been wondering if we had a woman at the top of our ticket, how about former Governor Bill Richardson as Vice President?  Perhaps, helping us charge up the Hispanic voters, and maybe pick up some more western desert states?  Perhaps, even Arizona?

        Then Warren is electable. She is leftist in a very populist direction (more national wealth to the middle class).

        The greedy wing o the Democratic Party has defeated us. $Clinton$ 2016.
