Because electricity is important.

They are conservative/Blue Dog Democrats. They most certainly didn't vote to put Obama in the white house.

Here's Joe Manchin's voting record. Call him what you want, he is still a reliable yea vote for Harry Reid, and when he does vote nay, it's of little consequence and good cover back home for his yea votes. WV will never have a serious shot at impeding the EPA and advancing their state's coal production as long as they keep putting legislators in who toe the party line.

And since this thread is really about Hillary, I'll be curious to see how she fares in light of these new Benghazi reports from CNN.

Can't remember his name, but there was once a cardinal, older fellow. Back in the days where the Papacy was a source of power struggles and poisonings, as this was some centuries ago this bishop wanted to be Pope.

So during the conclave, knowing his fellows would not want a long-lived Pope after the recently deceased lived for some time, he made sure to move extra slowly, nod off, and generally look as old and decrepit as possible.

When he was selected he sprang up and dashed down the aisle to accept the Papacy, for despite being old, he was actually in very good health.

Methinks something similar is at play here.

Imagine her having Colin Powell as her running mate. How about an Latino as her running mate, or an Asian? Maybe she would pick someone who is of mixed-race and GAY? Any combination dooms the hapless GOP. There isn't a GOP candidate alive who could compete.

Really so after
8 years of Obamanomics
4 years of Obamacare
Benghazi

Among the bombshell findings:

* A DS agent was called off a case against US Ambassador to Belgium Howard Gutman over claims that he solicited prostitutes, including minors.

“The agent began his investigation and had determined that the ambassador routinely ditched his protective security detail in order to solicit sexual favors from both prostitutes and minor children,” says the memo.

“The ambassador’s protective detail and the embassy’s surveillance detection team . . . were well aware of the behavior.”

Undersecretary of State for Management Patrick Kennedy ordered the investigation ceased, and the ambassador remains in place, according to the memo.


Gutman was a big Democratic donor before taking the post, having raised $500,000 for President Obama’s 2008 campaign and helping finance his inaugural.

* At least seven agents in Clinton’s security detail hired prostitutes while traveling with her in various countries, including Russia and Colombia.

So yeah. please let her run, Rand Paul will destroy her.
