It's the choice that liberal media want especially when there aren't many democrats building ground support for a run like say Jeb Bush has done or perhaps Paul and Santorum.

Why is the only choice Clinton?
Because as far as popularity goes, she stands head and shoulders above any other Democratic choice.
It's pretty much assumed that if Hillary wants the nomination, she'll get it.
That MAY be a bad assumption, but I don't think so.

She never even fully announced intent to. By this time in 2007, you had many candidates named for either side for the 2008 primary season. This year you only have one confirmed in Jeb Bush and others who are just rumors and whispers of being candidates including Hillary Clinton, Rand Paul and Rick Santorum.

Hillary has not even fully announced her intent to run because she doesn't need to. IF she decides to run, she will almost certainly get the nomination. There's really no one on the Democratic side who will have a chance against her so she can afford to take her time.

If she is up against anyone but a Tea Partier, I will vote Republican, even Rand Paul. If a Tea Partier is the Republican nomination, I'll vote third party.

That's fine. I don't expect EVERYONE to like her or vote for her.
I do however expect that she will WIN.

A lot of people thought that in 2007. I happen to think you are right, but this could seriously backfire on her. Without serious competition she will be rusty when she faces a viable Republican. We already know, she will have some explaining to do about past choices she has made. She needs someone to challenge her seriously and before too much longer.

Not only that but all the PACs and Super-PACs going after a single candidate. All they have to do is air the ad she ran against Obama in 2008 about the phone in the white house but intersplice Benghazi headlines and mission accomplished. That will be the Daisy ad for her that will derail her run.

Maybe not, I would not support Carson and it is doubtful I would support Cruz. I think of Cruz more of establishment type I am sure he will be a war hawk.

Benghazi is bullsh*t. Even the GOP-led report on the subject debunks all the "scandals".
