The Secretary of State is making all sort of headlines lately, and most of them don’t have much to do with her current job. (A woman with limitless options who is desired by 90% of the Democrats.) The word has hit the streets that Hillary Clinton’s future is pretty much cast in solid gold plated stone. (Snip)I do not like Hillary Clinton. In fact, I pretty much despise her, and have for quite some time. I was angry at her during her time as First Lady when duties involving public policy were essentially handed over to a non-elected
Four years from now is an eternity in politics. A whole other generation of voters will be saying "Who?" to this craven, almost 70 year-old candiate with unwashed hair, poor hygiene, a horrible, documented track record of failure, and a crackling, grating voice.

No not Hillary, the Democrats will run minority presidential candidates from now on after their success with Barry, Maybe they will run a black woman next time like multi millionairess Susan Rice with investments in Iran, or, don´t laugh, Sheila Jackson Lee.
I agree with Reply #1. Four years from now at 70 Piaps will be too old, too wrinkled, and , who knows, might even be indicted for something by then.
People need to keep pounding on her Communist connections, from the SDS and her Alinsky thesis in college, through her employment at a law firm owned by a Card Carrying Member of the Communist Party USA through the present. Don´t forget Bill´s activities while at Rhodes and his connections.
WAIT: I forgot about the Attention Span of Liberal Democrats - 30 seconds or less.
I don´t like HC any more than the person who made the first comment. But I remember one pundit´s comment in 2008, that her nomination / election would mean a continuation of the Bush policies to a greater extent than any other Dim. And I remember in 1954 that the election of Eisenhower made some observe that we had an honorable man in the WH rather than the product of corrupt machine politics.
Ironic that some in 2016 some will tout HC as the candididate who would take us back to better times.
Let´s get at her transcripts and her thesis from college (on communism) and not let up until they are released. Don´t let up on Libya nor Whitewater and how the billing records were hidden in her closet in the White House. We can also talk about Ron Brown and all of the other dead bodies from the Clinton years. We won´t have the press to help us.
Think it is about time OUR Goldfingers- Adelson, the Koch Bros etc step up and buy Comcast which owns NBC/MSNBC and turn it over to Roger Ailes to help us change the country before the PETUIATE becomes POTUS. Then we need to get a nominee that is first and foremost not a RINO Harvahd or Yale grad.
Sarah, Cruz, Mario, etc. Any Tea Party favorite.
Could do better then Romney/McCain. Maybe even beat Monica´s Boyfriend´s Wife.
I agree with #19´s first sentence. Also, #20 may have it right. Look for Mrs. Obama to run for the Senate from Ill. Or maybe Hawaii. As long as the Repub Party stays divided, an the Economy does not tank, we can expect the Dems to hold the WH for some time. We need the Sen an the House.
So Hillary has no chance. I fail to take much comfort in that prediction as it mostly seems to be coming from the very same posters who thought Ann Romney was a huge asset to the Republican ticket and Mitt would get elected in a landslide.
There is a lot of speculation about what Mrs. Slick Willie is going to do after she leaves he cameo role as Secretary of State. I believe that she should go back to a career of doing things that she has experience for. Like rural real estate development or Trading in the futures market
Mizzuz Clinton´s resume reads like a bus schedule, but get past her titles, and she has no accomplishments. None whatsoever. The woman travels the world and cannot even find a good hairdresser. But while she was doing that, Benghazi happened.
So have several others from both parties. The SCOTUS can´t overturn the 22nd Amendment, it must be repealed by another Amendment passed by both Houses of Congress and ratified by 3/4ths (38) of the States.
For now Hillary WILL BE the next president no matter what. The press has already elected her. The only way this will change is if the DNC changes their fax blasts to the Fourth Estate with Van Jones (yes, I mean THAT Van Jones), et al, then he or whoever the DNC deems will be the next president. If you haven´t yet figured it out, elections are nothing more than window dressings from here on out. Saul Alinsky owns the country now and will until we´re taken out. And spare me with the "You´ve given up" nonsense.
It´s not a sure thing that the Democrats will nominate Hillary Clinton in the end, as look what happened last time when Barack Obama showed up out of nowhere. Remember the Democrats need a large black vote to win national elections. So if an Obama clone suddenly shows up and runs against Clinton in the Democrat primaries, and if the Democrats want to win the general election they might be forced to pick the black clone over Clinton to ensure that a big portion of their black base will not feel insulted if Clinton were to knock out their black candidate for the nomination.
The only way to get past that is to nominate Clinton with a black candidate, maybe Michelle Obama as VP on a Clinton ticket. The liberal media would then crow about Clinton winning in 2016 and 2020, with Michelle Obama then keeping the Democrats in the White House through 2024 and 2028.
If that liberal dream were to happen, the resulting progressive agenda would ensure that the USA would be an entirely different country indeed.
Hillary is a liar and incompetent in everything she does. She threw Mubarek under the bus and Mubarek was an American friend who kept the peace for 35 years. It should have been cleat to Hillary that the Muslim Brotherhood would be elecelected in Egypt with +70 of the popular vote. Now the Muslim brotherhood is arming Hamas and may be planning to declare war on Israel. It is going to be a tough summer in Israel. Hillary should stop planning to run for President in 2016. Hillary should retire, bake cookies and keep an eye on Bill before he exposes himself to a younger Paula Jones.
There may be enough men in both parties to stop either Hillary or Michelle simply because they will never accept a woman let known two with such questionable members of the gender. Other than black women for a black I just don´t see the lady parts voters rallying around an old biddy or a dominant black female wanna be. From most the posts on L Dot since the election the GOP factions have to reclaim something missing in the courage and cooperation department to even make the first step into retaining freedom.
Hillary is not interested in being president. Everyone knows that she is an expert in the cattle futures market....at finding FBI files on her desk........at getting shot at while boarding a plane.......at imitating Black Southern "tired" women...at being a lifetime fan of the Yankees....at pushing (ahem)RESET buttons with former adversaries....at the Olympic lamp-throwing competition....
American presidents should avoid shaking the hand of dictators, especially those that have American blood on theirs. One example of many: Raul Castro was Minister of Defense in 1996 when Cuban Air Force MiGs, cold-bloodedly and over international airspace, destroyed two civilian U.S. airplanes with four American rescue workers on board. President Clinton rightly condemned the attack as cowardly, while Raul Castro decorated his pilots for bravery. That incident alone illustrates the difference between the two systems that are embodied in the two leaders. President Obama seems unaware of the importance of his office or of the mantle of honor
Before we all forget about the latest spat between Sen. Elizabeth Warren and the banks, before it’s downgraded to an anecdote in Game Change III: The Changeling, let’s reflect on how the media got dragged into it and covered the story on Warren’s terms. Short version: Two honchos at the center-left think tank Third Way wrote a Wall Street Journal op-ed warning that a proposal to expand Social Security was foolishness and “economic populism is a dead end for Democrats.” A clutch of progressives—or, if you prefer, economic populists—demanded that elected Democrats distance themselves from the op-ed. The senior senator
Fresh questions about Steve Jobs’ liver transplant have been raised after it emerged that the doctor who performed the surgery spent two years in the Memphis, Tenn., house Jobs bought for his recovery. Dr. James Eason, who performed the March 2009 liver transplant, moved into the palatial house Jobs bought for his recovery just a few months after the operation, according to a report. It isn’t the first time questions have been raised over whether Jobs, a California resident, received an unfair advantage in landing the Memphis transplant. Eason lived in the house in midtown Memphis for two years before
Dan Rather was once among the most powerful figures in American media. Which is why watching him today is a particularly poignant and painful thing. Consider Mr. Rather’s appearance with CNN’s Piers Morgan Monday night. When asked about the recent, erroneous Benghazi report on 60 Minutes that led to a leave of absence for reporter Lara Logan, Rather compared that story to the one that ruined his career: “With our story, the one that led to our difficulty, no question the story was true. What the complaint… was ‘Okay, your story was true, but the way you got to the truth was
The presidential helicopter landed in the small town of Orania, South Africa. It was August, 1995. The President of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, had come for tea. Tea with Betsie Verwoerd, the 94-year old widow of South Africa’s former Prime Minister, Hendrik Verwoerd. It was Mrs. Verwoerd’s husband who, as noted here in this story from the Christian Science Monitor, was known as the “architect of apartheid” — the disgraceful policy of racial segregation that Mandela was famously imprisoned for fighting. The reason for the overwhelming tidal wave of emotion and celebration of Nelson Mandela’s life and legacy in South
If you run a police state such as North Korea (a.k.a. “The People’s Republic of North Korea”) publicity is almost always bad, so you avoid it if possible. There are occasional exceptions and the North Korea authorities spotted one a month ago. A guided tour group was about to leave after a week’s visit when, in a last-minute review of the passenger list, an operative noticed that one of the visitors had not only been a U.S. Army veteran of the Korean War, but also may have been in counter-intelligence. With that, they took Merrill Newman, a retired California businessman,
President Barack Obama’s expected 10-minute speech at Nelson Mandela’s memorial will cost taxpayers at least $500,000 per minute. That’s not counting any cakes and coffee he and his inner circle consume aboard Air Force One during the 18,000-mile round trip to Johannesburg, via Dakar, in Senegal. The 28-hour two-way flight will cost $5 million because the four-engined Boeing 747 costs roughly $180,000 an hour to operate, according to a May 2012 report by the Congressional Research Service. The cost includes jet fuel and subsequent maintenance of the aircraft’s engines, electronics and hotel-class facilities. Obama has been accompanied by the First Lady, Attorney General Eric
On his way to the podium at the memorial ceremony for former South African president Nelson Mandela, President Obama walked down the line of dignitaries, greeting other leaders there to pay their respects. Among the hands shaken: that of Cuban leader Raul Castro. Obama neither made a special effort to shake Castro’s hand nor to avoid him. A snub might have been awkward: In his speech, Obama praised Mandela’s “greatest gift” as “his recognition that we are all bound together in ways that can be invisible to the eye; that there is a oneness to humanity; that we achieve ourselves by
A “presidential selfie” featuring President Barack Obama, British Prime Minister David Cameron, and Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt at Nelson Mandela’s memorial service began making the rounds this morning, but it’s the person not included in the frame who caught everyone’s attention: As anyone with two eyes and a Twitter account has noticed, Michelle Obama does not appear amused. Of course, though a picture says a thousand words, not all of those words are necessarily true. FLOTUS might not have even known the photo was taking place. Or she could disapprove of funeral selfies. Either way.
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
The Obama State Department has finally released a second round of photos revealing the harrowing devastation wrought by a terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012. The new photographs depict rampant damage to the consulate. They show charred walls, smoldering fires, Arabic graffiti defacing exterior walls, and scattered debris throughout. The extent of the damage would lead any reasonably serious person to conclude that this was a cold, calculated attack, carefully coordinated to mark the 11th anniversary of Sept. 11, 2001. Unfortunately for the American people, the Obama-Clinton-Rice cabal that led to the Benghazi cover-up was
Just how much do many Hollywood liberals hate conservatives? In an interview with Playboy, Ben Affleck said, "When I watch a guy [on film] I know is a big Republican, part of me thinks, I probably wouldn’t like this person if I met him": PLAYBOY: You developed a political profile campaigning for presidential candidates Al Gore, John Kerry and Barack Obama. How did that come about? AFFLECK: I grew up in a house with a mother who was a teacher and a Freedom Rider—very left-wing Democrats living in a heterogeneous working-class neighborhood. I picked up a lot of those values there, and I
MSNBC host Melissa Harris-Perry opened her program over the weekend with a commentary about the Affordable Care Act’s colloquial moniker: “Obamacare.” She said that the word was originally created as a “derogatory term,” designed by white men as a way to delegitimize President Barack Obama and his achievement. However, she said that the term will soon be synonymous with all of Obama’s accomplishments and she urged her audience to use the term with pride. “I want to talk today about a controversial word. It’s a word that has been with us for years, and like it or not, it’s indelibly
President Obama, former president George W. Bush and their wives departed Washington Monday morning on Air Force One on their way to a memorial service in South Africa for Nelson Mandela. The president and first lady Michelle Obama are being accompanied by Mr. Bush, former first lady Laura Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on the flight to Johannesburg. A four-hour memorial service will be held on Tuesday for South Africa’s first black president. Mr. Mandela, the anti-apartheid revolutionary, died on Thursday at age 95. Former President Bill Clinton and daughter Chelsea are traveling separately to South Africa. Former President
