So would I. We might actually see an adult type of election without all the histrionics to the bases. I wonder how Fox News and the talk radio guys would handle it. Equal opportunity attacking of both candidates?

Default We're going to have another DEMOCRAT as POTUS

Republicans need to face the reality that they are NOT going to take back the White House in 2016. There are many reasons for this, the least of which is the fact that every potential GOP presidential candidate being mentioned, is absolutely REPULSIVE. The only thing that reeks more than each of these suspects is the ideology they represent. No.

Who do I want for President? A DEMOCRAT.

I like Sanders. Warren I did like but think she is to much of a chicken hawk....Stein no. I like a lot of her ideas but little bit out there for my taste...

I'd like to see Sanders or Warren as president, but Jill Stein has never even held a public office before, and I would never vote for the Green Party. Jill Stein couldn't even win a state house election

Elizabeth Warren is too far to the left to win. Even if she did win the presidency with a majority republican congress she would have to govern from the middle to get anything done.

Don't forget that there are many moderate Democrats out there would would not be thrilled with a Hillary nomination. The right moderate Republican candidate could get a lot of those votes.

That being said, finding a Republican candidate that could appeal to both the moderates and the hard conservatives is probably out of the question. So you may be right that it will be a Democrat win in 2016. But we are a long ways away and strange things can happen.

It is Hillary or bust for the Democrats. If she does not run, the alternative is Joe Biden. Both over 70 within a year of taking office. The GOP has a vast array of options, from Romney to Rand to Jindal to Rubio to Scott Walker to Susana Martinez.

As a Republican, I am looking forward to this. This is going to be a lot of fun.

The question is, can Hillary get the nomination. She was supposed to be a sure thing when she got beat in the primaries by an inexperienced nobody. Anybody who thinks Hillary is a shoe in better look back at recent history.. You have to win your primary first.
