In fact for those not liking Obama you could also say Obama is doing as good a job as is possible considering he's having to deal with a downturn in a natural economic cycle
Heres another line of logic, a representative of a party that just hates everything and everybody cant seriously expect to garner enough votes to be a credible contender for office of President.
Hillary is skilled at what? Hillary has not experience running an economy. She has used her husband's political connections to gain power for herself --- she really flubbed it as Secretary of State. Her Arab Spring is turning out to be a big mess.

She's worse by far than Obama -- and that's not saying much for him.

I respect Hillary, she was an okay NY senator even though everyone understood she was only using it as a springboard for a presidential run. But I haven't been impressed with her run at State. Granted Obama made it impossible with his silly and feckless approach to foreign affairs, but her role in Benghazi was awful. She let Obama hide behind Susan Rice as Rice went out and peddled the administrations lies about Benghazi, which brought to mind her election campaign ad against Obama about the 3 am phone call. Where was Clinton?

We expect this now from Obama....without a teleprompter he's out of his depth on anything. But Hillary hid behind Rice's lies to the American public too. It brought back vivid images of Bill Clinton's lies, and reminded everyone the Clinton's just can't be trusted.

You forgot to mention that she's a lesbian who was raped by the sexual deviant she had agreed to a marraige of convenience for political reasons with and had a daughter. Can you imagine being Chelsea, knowing how you came about..........

I agree with Nita that there's a good chance that she won't run and if she does, she might do only one term in my opinion.

I think Obamacare's fortunes or failures can be hung up on any Democratic candidate also. If it's a fiasco, that's gonna be a major albatross for a Democrat to carry. So let's not be so cocky.

Nita is right...things DO change in 3 years. And surely, a lot will.

That said...i don't think she can lose at this point. I'm damn sure going to vote for her. I voted for her in the 08 primaries over Obama because i felt it was her turn and she was more ready.

Three years before he was elected Obama was basically unknown to 99% of America. Lots can happen.

Sadly the Republican party has yet to acknowledge that many people don't vote based on qualifications.

They vote for popularity, anti-establishment, or because their favorite celebrity told them who they should vote for. There's no beating that! Hence, we have the current clown in chief - part two.

Oh you think most of us don't know that: this is the problem, thee are too many who vote for reasons other than who can best lead our country? And yes, I have to say, Obama is an example of just this. I was or am certainly not a supporter of McCain or Romney, but I still think either would have done a better job. We will never know will we? Now, it is up to the party to find a candidate that has good, solid, workable ideas and the personality to attract voters. We can't blame not having a decent candidate on the Democrats.

If Republicans vote based on qualifications, how did McCain and Romney end up as your nominees?

Better yet, how did Palin get on the McCain ticket?

You guys don't base your votes in qualifications. The Republican Party has been reduced to throwing up candidates that they think can win. That's about it. Qualifications have squat to do with it.

We didn't choose Palin and as much as I happen to share many of her views, I agree she was a very poor choice, totally unprepared and certainly not ready for prime time. As for Romney, he was very much qualified. I didn't like him, I still don't but why would you think he wasn't qualified? He had executive experience which Obama didn't have, for starters. We may not always share the views of a candidate, but that doesn't mean they basically are not qualified. I would have to say McCain was as well. Again, certainly more than Obama. He had many more years in the government and had served in the military.
