  •  I'm innately skeptical of "Hillary is Inevitable" (8+ / 0-)

    after last time, but she really does hold an even-more commanding position this year, and she's probably not going to face a once-in-a-generation political talent the way she did six years ago.

        ....president who people "weren't that crazy about"?  1992, right, and then 1996? But we have been "spoiled" by several years of a president who has come closer to political integrity than we've seen in a while. Not perfect, I know major mistakes like the NSA and drones, etc., but everyone knew we weren't electing George McGovern, because it wouldn't work. President Obama is a very savvy politician. He wants the foundation he has worked so hard to establish to last, and not be screwed up by a Rand Paul or Jeb Bush succeeding him. Hillary could screw things up because, for starters, her campaign in 2008 had major failings, and there's reason to believe that if she hires some of the same bozos the next time over, history could repeat itself. What Hillary has said in the past few months doesn't exactly get folks excited about her thinking process. She is way too tame, way too safe, like a football team that is trying hard to not lose, but taking no chances in order to win. The country does not need that kind of president to succeed Obama. We need major headway in financial reform, electoral reform, tackling poverty, infrastructure rebuilding, etc.   The list goes on and on. Whoever is elected has to have determination and a lot of energy, and be able to energize the electorate, and I'll leave it there for now.

          I think we will get many domestic satisfactions -- to the extent that they do not interfere financially with the Defense (resource war) budget. I think Hillary would bring it domestically. (Except for financial reform, of course. Those guys own this place.)

          A Rand Paul or Elizabeth Warren would never be allowed on a Presidential ticket. They don't past muster with Our Defense or Financier Overlords.

          This is the 21st century.
