Hillary Clinton 2016 election: Launch expected Sunday - POLITICO


She'll have a billion dollar war chest waiting for a scarred GOP nominee. I see this election going along the lines of 2012. Clinton will be able to define the opponent like Obama defined Romney while the GOP candidate will be facing his own challengers in the party trying to eliminate him.

She's been my pick all along and the smart money is on her.

Not saying I do or don't like her, but she'll win.

I don't think she will even be the Democrat Nominee and I certainly hope she isn't! In order I like Bernie Sanders,Elizabeth Warren and Joe Manchin

After the way she handled 'email gate', I'm not as confident as I was, but I still think she'll win because the Republicans don't really have a strong contender, and because she has such a huge war chest. [I don't think email gate is that significant, but her response was awkward to say the least.]

I agree: She'll sale through the nomination process, while the eventual Republican nominee will emerged as damaged goods in much the same way as Romney.

Oh, please! None of them are recognizable to casual voters. I think Warren might have potential if she gets the right exposure in the next 4-8 years, but not yet.

Face it: Polling data indicates Hilary is the only plausible nominee. Before you mention Obama, none of the other candidates is polling as well as he did at this point in the last election cycle, and none of them is nearly as charismatic and compelling. Like it or not, for Dems it's Hilary or bust:

I think all 3 are recognizable with Manchin being the least recognizable. Sanders is on the campaign trail talking to people in Iowa etc and Warren keeps saying she ain't running. With the clown car of candidates the GOP is rolling out a newbie Dem could beat them.

Did you even read the poll I provided in the last post? She leads every other potential nominee by an average of almost 50%!

I'm not going to go back and look, but didn't you write on this forum at one point that you do not vote?

Default Her announcement will give the GOP the runs...to go along with their sour grapes

I'd like to see her challenged in the primaries, so she has to work hard to win the nomination, the way Obama did. This will make her a better candidate when she goes up against the ludicrous GOP nominee.

Also, it's hard to believe that the GOP is even in this race. The have been absolutely pathetic and shameful for the last 25 years. The last 7 years have been the worst. It will be interesting watching them try to appear moderate while they continue to reek worse than at any time in recent memory. They can't hide what they are, which is the party of Dixie.

She isn't going to make it out of the primary.
