    No thanks, I can't wait to see the field of Democratic Party candidates. This is going to be a good primary.

    I'm amused to see though that at least some of HRC's supporters are dropping the charade already and just straight-up trying to squash discussion of any alternative. Afraid that the closer we look, the less we will like her? You should be.

      complaining and moaning and arrogance will go from here to  2016 but hopefully by then you'll be marginalized. Keep talking it's a free blog. I'm not telling you to shut up. BUT: If you were more willing to just have a discussion instead of "afraid that the closer we look....You should be" is the kind of language that makes my blood boil. So for you I only have:

        Did you read the post I was replying to? A discussion is all I want to have. I want to push back against those that would rather not have this discussion and would rather get on with the coronation already.

      Even if Hillary is THE ONE it's silly to put all our eggs in one basket.  Some sort of credible health problem could pop up (real or manufactured), a relatively recent scandal come out, she could commit a major faux pas or get splattered when one of her associates goes down (big politicos seem to attract the type of people who turn out to be disreputable when closely examined).  

      In any case, there could be someone out there biding there time who believes they've got the plan to take HRC down and then whatever right-wingnut the GOPers nominate; worked for Obama.

      Afraid that the closer we look, the less we will like her?
      I think that we already know enough about what HRC brings to the table, for better and for worse.

        We might know what she brings to the table with regards to policy, but most of America doesn't. That's why we need to encourage a robust primary process. I just get the feeling that some people are pushing the "inevitable" message so hard as an attempt to discourage interest in (and discussion of) HRC`s substantial shortcomings and the potential alternative candidates.

    •  I agree (0+ / 0-)

      I think Hillary agrees. We want a healthy primary and whichever woman wins the most delegates will be the nominee.

      Voting is the means by which the public is distracted from the realities of power and its exercise.
