Pennsylvania polling has Rand Paul ahead of Hillary in 2016 - Watchdog.org
Rand will never be the POTUS.

Never. Ever. Ever.

Then those poll numbers are probably incorrect.

I really like Rand Paul but I think Rubio is probably going to be the last Republican standing. Hope Im wrong.

Only a Fox "news" (wet) dream poll would have Paul running anywhere close to Clinton.

I would seriously discount those numbers.

I hope/pray that people will let these knuckleheads bull$**** each other to death for the next 12 months, and then in the final three months before the election, they can come public with their respective platforms and make their case to the voters.

I don't think I can take 18 months of hot air from these jokers.

Paul's father took a lot of disrespect and abuse from reporters, and Rand is bound and determined not to fall into that same trap. It's a shame the media is looking for any excuse to smear him. He has a lot of good ideas, and I don't blame him for not letting reporters twist his positions into something they are not.

Pennsylvania polling has Rand Paul ahead of Hillary in 2016 - Watchdog.org

This will change 20 times over the next year and a half....nice to see she recovered from her concussion, and "Debate" about whether or not she was going to enter...she has the cash and cold ice water running through her veins to screw anyone to win.....

Just hope those emails become a true smoking gun...and if they do...it will still be close as 1/2 of America just doesn't give a crud about anything but, what they can get for free from the guvmint.....just the way it is....

Sad.....really was hoping we could get a candidate, right or left, that could unite instead of divide. In Hillary's case, she is a much of a divider as Barrack and in some cases, worse. She doesn't care about you or me, just the power the office holds.

I don't think anyone cares if a woman gets elected, just not Hillary...Some females that would be acceptable? All of these are put forth by a middle aged white guy who is Republican. The silent majority if you will. These are compared to putting Hillary forward

Carly Fiorna: Republican. Has actually HAD real world experience in business. Something we desperately need right NOW.
Kelly Ayote: Republican. Truly long shot but, acceptable
Mary Bono: Powerful attorney and congresswoman from California. Used to be married to Connie Mack
Tammy Baldwin: Democrat, gay senator from Wisconsin. Only had 3 veterans die while sitting on a report from the VA....Hillary lost 4 people (two diplomats, 2 Navy Seals) serving our country...that we know of....
Condoleeza Rice: Black , super sharp, Provost of Stanford, earned her career coming from humble beginnings in Alabama....you may not like her but, if there is anyone that knows Putin in this crowd, it's her. She was the leading analyst on the Soviet Union prior to her state appointments under Bush. Her knowledge is actually useful.
Elizabeth Warren: At least this Democrat whacko has passion. She actually believes in her misguided ways on business but, I'll at least respect her for CHOOSING a view and sticking with it. Hillary will just say anything to anyone for a vote. Think about it.
Susan Collins: Republican from Maine. Was a TV writer...we need a better spin doctor than the ones we have particularly that white house press secretary whatshername....she lies worse than anyone so far and Carny was pretty good at lying.
Nikki Haley: Governor of South Carolina. Born from Indian (dot, not feather) parents. Probably smarter than the whole crowd put together. Could help us with Indian relations and that could help to keep China at bay. Who would you rather be in bed with? The Indians or the Chinese??? We need an allies in the area....helps keep Pakistan on their toes as they are mortal enemies of one another. Handy Hailey is now her nickname.
Joni Ernst: Colonel in the reserves. Came up humble. I like that. She knows the value of YOUR tax dollars. Hillary? She can't spend your cash fast enough.
Deb Fischer: Senator from Nebraska, replaced laser haircut Nelson.
Maria Cantwell: Sure, she loves a PAC or two but, who doesn't? She's a Democrat but much less offensive than Hillary and Labor can actually work with her....
Shelly Capito: Republican....FROM WEST VIRGINIA!!!! That alone is worth the look.
Mia Love: Yes, Mia Love....she is black and holds EVERYONE accountable...not her turn but, I would rather have her than Hillary.
Cathy Rogers: Insider in Washington....literally....educated and slices and dices the opportunity. Nice.
Jaime Herrera Buetler: Hey, when looks matter?
Kim Reynolds: " " " Isn't she just sooooo cute?

No matter, throw a dart, ALL of them would be preferable to Hillary. It will be interesting to see how Elizabeth Warren does but, at least 1/2 of these women should be testing the waters for a future shot. 4 of them would be taken very, very seriously and you can probably figure out who they are.

As mentioned, America (men) is NOT afraid or intimidated by having a female president. Quite the contrary. Hillary has proven that a good portion couldn't care less about the gender. Like all candidates, it's getting the RIGHT person in the job. Not "just because she is a woman" but rather, because she is the BEST candidate???

Hillary??? Really????? I don't think any of the above mentioned have pulled as many faux pais' collectively as Hillary??? None of them were involved in a state department affair that went awry. If there were ever an election cycle that COULD produce a female president it will 2016. It would be the surprise of the election. Why more aren't contending is a mystery to me. Hillary has more quills thrown at her than a porcupine.

Seems like a sharp Ernst type, right or left, would have a shot. Needs to be a moderate, needs to have business savvy, needs to know how to navigate and win in Washington. Know any of those? Hillary just comes through like a Tornado wreaking havoc and despair. Now her daughter is in on the racket. With Gucci jewelry and designer outfits, yeah, that will hit home with Democrats and Republicans of modest means.....right....

Why don't you on the left go invigorate some of those mentioned? See if any of them want to get off the bench or, are they too scared of Hillary? If they are, then they should never be President. Ever.

Oh - the old 'makers' vs 'takers' argument! That is so 2012. Ask Mitt how well it worked for him.

Wonder how many people on Medicare gonna take that personally? Most of them vote Republican, no?
