Lets have him wait at least 8 months to do the trick. If he leaves we are stuck with Joe Biden and I can't stand the thought of that. Then if Biden should come awake and resign we would be stuck with Boehner. I just can't stand that one at all. Both Biden and Boehner are establishment politicians and we don't need any more of them.

I guess if we could find a way to get Allen West or Herman Cain to serve out the remainder of this term I could be happy, at least think there could be some good come from it all.

Any black man will do, huh? So long as he's not Obama. Too bad Richard Pryor is dead now, eh?

That's probably a matter of perspective considering the Democrats intent was to replace all of the Republicans. Sounds to me more like a big loss for the Donks.

Do you feel this could actually happen and would there be an immediate burst of positive economic activity as a result?

Either of those black men would suit me for the next term. One of them is really black and the other would be an excellent choice as far as I am concerned.

BTW, there are no men at all other than Gingrich running in the other party that I can accept. Now the women are acceptable for me.

So would that officially make Bill the First Lady? We all know who was wearing the pants when he was president. Hell, his pants were off half the time anyways chasing beastly looking interns around the Whitehouse.

In the end, that may be precisely why he chooses to not run.

Being defeated might be an unacceptable risk for him, and the numbers certainly don't look good.

He could claim the emergence of the Tea Party Movement is an expression of white racism which has hampered his ability to govern and still play the hero to his base.

Also, declaring he won't be running will give him the ability to rule as a dictator without worrying about public sentiment, Congress or even impeachment. You can't fire a guy who already quit.



I heard a clip from a recent Obama campaign speech last week. He sounded defeated already as he stumbled along attempting to make his actions in office sound like wise policy. At this point, he may be trying to avoid being trapped in an unwinnable campaign by staying in too long the way Carter did.

Ok, I'll bite, just because I'm bored.
Explain this theory, please?

I hear her schedule is open in 2013.

The money and the machine are already in place.

All she has to do is announce.

I don't see a coronation though.

Hilary Clinton has always had extremely high negatives.
