You're probably ignoring the Bill Clinton factor.

I see them as two completely different people, and I don't think I'm alone. I'm not sure if there will be much crossover appeal.

Bill as the First Man could be pretty entertaining though.

I just know if men think their rights are down the toilet now wait until she is president lol. Im sure more of my money will be going to people who cant support their kids, more "no means no" laws like in California, etc. I know more of my money will be going to entitled people who are making bad financial decisions and I will have to bail them out, more of my money going to people who don't want to work everyday like I do, etc. I feel democrats cater to the idiots of the world too much as it is but I think it will get worse with her.

My sentiments exactly.

That won't happen since the VP nominee cannot be from the same state as the nominee. Bush and Rubio are both from Florida.

Any man who thinks their rights are down the toilet is either stupid or a liar. But in my experience, the people who think that way are far right wingers who would never vote for a Dem candidate anyway, regardless of gender.

Not altogether true, although it was. The Constitution does not expressly forbid it; it only forbids a state's electors from voting for the same state. It harkens back to when the VP was the also ran for President and not chosen by the Presidential candidate.I don't think it would hold water today. If I remember right, Rahm Emanuel was given serious consideration for VP by the Obama campaign.

I had forgotten that, too. I would think that rule is in place to give the illusion that the whole country is being represented, and not just one state or region.

I'm supporting Rand Paul in the primaries.

Realistically we're very likely going to see a Bush vs. Hillary ballot. A ballot in my opinion that should (let me emphasis should) cause the lowest voter turnout in history. Unfortunately, the majority of the population are low information voters and have this twisted view that Bush and Hillary some how hold differing policy beliefs and views on the role of government.

I think it's way to early to tell who wins in this scenario. It will come down to: how many real and/or imagined terrorist/global threats the GOP is able to highlight vs. how many real and/or imagined threats to the social safety net the DNC is able to highlight.

Even if you were right about this (hint: you're not) it ignores the supreme court and federal district and appeals courts. Hillary and Jeb would nominate very different people to the bench. That's an incredibly important and influential part of a president's job.
