I wonder if people were thinking back then that "Democrats had no chance" in 1992. Hopefully once Obama's term is over people will realize a liberal is not what this country needs right now- similar to the mindset after Bush's term was over.

You can call it whatever you want, but it's a base of 242 electoral votes for the Democrats that has lasted for 20 years.

If she runs, she wins with ease. No one else gave Obama a battle, and the Blue Wall states, Va, NM would all go HC by even healthier margins than they went for Obama.

If she opts to run, whomever is the Democratic nominee rides that same EC rich path into the WH.

Math wins, every time. The only sane campaign MO is to win the hearts and minds of the population in EC rich states.

Can you read a thread caption? This is not about liking nor disliking her, it is about the probability of her success in seeking the office of the presidency.

I'd like 2 parties to battle well for said office, but in recent decades, the GOP has not been competitive for POTUS, losing 61%+ of total ECs over 24 years.

These pics speak well:




Let's see, you've got about 50 folks there - half a dozen of whom are actors (what happened to shut up and sing...or act?), or talking heads (I see Malkin and Perino), a comedian or two, and at least one dead guy (Breibart).

I'm not sure what point you are attempting to make with this photo. Maybe that out of the millions of GOP folks, there's 30 +/- who aren't white as snow on rice?

Do they?
Really?
Well, let's look at the numbers shall we?
Of the general U.S. population, just over 1/2 are women (50.8%). Racial minorities make up another large chunk. When all is said and done white males are about 1/3rd of the population.
Now, let's look at the GOP make up of Congress shall we?
The percentage of non-white male Republican House members is 12% (down from 14% in the last Congress). Democrats and Republicans hold 55 and 45 Senate seats - but there are FOUR TIMES as many Democratic woman Senators as there are GOP woman Senators (16 Democratic woman Senators vs 4 GOP woman Senators).

So let's see - white males make up about 33% of the general population, but 88% of the GOP reps in the house and nearly 90% of the GOP senators.
Yeah, I'd say "old white males" is what the NUMBERS say - no matter what your token picture tries to say.

Default If you hav been around?

Clinton is damaged goods. Bill & Hillary have so many white House scandals that all of these will come out., Like White Water.

Ms. Clinton supported a rapist, Bill and his 5 victims.

Hillary's non record as senator and she ran in New Your instead of Arkansas.
New Yorkers are fleeing the state of NY, because of High Taxes and Regulation.

She voted for the war and she didn't?

Her not record as Secretary of State.
Benghazi, Syria ????
Approved of releasing 5 Terrorist, that will return to the fight?

Her polices ,hmmm, what Policies???????

See what I mean.

Despite his awful showing in the 2012 primaries, I think Rick Perry could have a very good chance of beating Hilary.

1. The national impression of Texas is that it is a job machine.
2. The US is a very forgiving country with a short attention span.
3. Texas is a border state and at the epicenter of illegal immigration and Perry appeals to Latino voters.
4. Perry has done an exceptional job thus far of changing his image.
5. Ted Cruz has zero chance of winning the nomination if Perry can keep his act together.
