    women's issues would not cast a vote for Rand Paul.  

    I don't think he inspires a good deal of confidence on social issues generally and I think he would lose the support of women voters in very significant numbers.

    I'm not seeing which constituency Romney lost last cycle would be more inclined to vote for Rand Paul.  If anything, I think Rand would be even less competitive than Romney, and Romney, after all, got his butt kicked.  

    I wouldn't vote for Rand Paul under any circumstances.

    •  Women don't matter. (3+ / 0-)

      Every time a commenter claims Hillary will depress turnout with liberals or be no different from the GOP completely disappears women, who have had their rights more under attack in the last four years than any time in modern American history.

      All polling indicates that it is women and liberals that are most enthusiastic about a Hillary candidacy, with highest intensity among younger voters ans non-white voters.  It's the Obama coalition on steroids.

      Has there ever been a more visible advocate for women's rights and their own agency with such a good chance of winning the presidency?  

      •  There are voters who will give all (0+ / 0-)

        our primary candidates a fair and thorough look over, as I think most of us would anyway, but as things stand now, HClinton is the prohibitive favorite.

        The GOP knows this, and of course, we hear them squawking about Benghazi and brain trauma and other trumped up hoaxes.  

        The Republicans have lost on issues alone.  If they lose the presidency yet again, there's an increased chance that the GOP will split open or maybe even dissolve.  Wishful thinking on my part, but there's a chance that they cannot withstand this many years in a row with nearly every major constituency rejecting their bigotry and cluelessness.  

        She's historically positioned to rewrite a few of our grandkids' history books.
