Romney seems to be sniffing around political circles again...would take Pence down pretty quick on the GOP side.
Really? Have you seen the other thread(s) on it here? There's already people just giddy over the thought...

That gender war started the day Trump was elected. That a pus*y grabber could rise to the top like he did sparked a fire that started the whole 'me too' movement and women are still fired up to work hard change the status quo regarding the gender power structure in the USA. But your point is well taken: f she ran and didn't win the gender war would be taken to unpredictable levels.

Actually, quite a few people want her to run.

The question is whether she could win.

Could she beat the Republican machine and their Russian troll farms?

How does building a billion dollar media empire from nothing not qualify as "experience in business"? And what difference does Trump's place of education matter when Trump doesn't know basic things about government and history?

Obama, and the Democrats escalated the Race, Gender, LGBT Identity Politics war long before Trump. During her campaign, Hillary also used it. Trump's off color comment TWENTY YEARS AGO had nothing to do with it. Hollywood, and the Democrat supporting sexual abusers like Weinstein re-ignited it.

This makes too much sense.

But the likely answer is because everyone is phony and corrupt except for an outsider like Donald Trump. And Holden Caulfield, of course.

Imo, it really depends on if she could get younger voters interested. To the 25 and under crowd, she's not relevant. Obama was helped immensely by the young people.
She might be able to pull some of the soccer mom crowd who voted for Trump. She would get poc to the polls in larger numbers than Clinton did.
Let's see what kind of platform she advocates. I really don't think it's going to be as liberal as you'd think. The difference between her and Obama is that he grew up white, she didn't. She understands the hood culture and I think she'd be a lot harder on takers, make them do more for themselves.

Is this some kind of projection due to the shame some GOP voters feel having nominated and elected a reality TV star who may be in the early stages of dementia?
