Why Hillary Clinton Will Win in 2016
Real Clear Politics, by Carl M. Cannon

Original Article

Posted By:garnet, 6/22/2014 10:20:16 AM

At the end of the Civil War, but before the pernicious reach of Jim Crow undermined the Union Army’s battlefield victory, former slaves and free blacks found themselves in possession of a most precious right -- the right to vote. It didn’t matter if a man had been a war hero in the famed, all-black 54th Massachusetts Volunteer Infantry Regiment or a house servant in a Southern plantation. All that mattered was that he was a man. To say that this development didn’t sit well with the progressive-minded women of this country is an understatement. Before the war, the abolitionist movement and

Perhaps she might win, but all that it will take is just one public fainting spell to illustrate that her traumatic head injury is much worse than advertised, and cast doubt on her ability to effectively fulfill the duties of the office!!!

His point is Hillary will win because we have to atone for our sins against women. I think that grossly underestimates the average voter, even a few of the lo-fo´s. Hillary is very beatable if we stay focused on her record and issues. It won´t matter what her gender is.

It all depends who will be on GOP side.
Establishment pick like Romney or Bush will make base to stay home (myself included) and Hilary win.
Both Texas guys will mean Reagan times are coming back.

The demographic group that Hillary will get (depend on her for this) hating her the most is married women. This pipe dream of riding to victory in a General Election on the backs of oppressed womanhood without really doing or accomplishing anything remotely worthwhile or redeeming, is exactly that - a pipe dream.

Guys, much as it pains me to say it, if Hillary wants the Presidency in 2016 it´s hers for the taking. Not because America wants Hillary Clinton for President but because the Democrats have perfected the art of cheating in high level elections. Think Mexico´s PRI up until the 1990´s where they won every Presidential election even though everybody voted against them. Yes, it´s come to that.

Hillary certainly will win. Want to know why? Because of you. Enough of you stayed at home and sat in your little self-satisfied chairs fuming because Santorum or Perry weren´t the republican nominee. You have your principals, you said. Romney was not conservative enough, you said. He will not get MY vote, you said. Congratulations.

Don´t fret people, her book has already bombed and the price for a new book has dropped from $35 to $13.79 in about two weeks. Rank is now #13 and sinking faster and deeper than the Titanic.

The worst nightmare for this country is lowfo voters and conservatives that stay home on election night. Digging this country out from under a communist socialist administration is now going to take sometime, and if the country elects another of the same, forget America it´s OVER!

The problem, 19, is that most Dems and our "conservative" GOP in DC don´t want to fix it, they want to control it. It´s gradations of damage, not about cleaning the mess up.

I always vote, though it might not be for either of the parties who are causing this destruction.

I respectfully disagree that the failure of her book to sell is an omen that she would not win the presidency. Many lo-fo voters cannot read or would never dream of reading a whole book, much less buy one even as a doorstop. However, they WILL go to the polls if given a ride and five bucks or a pack of cigs, or if they feel threatened that they will no longer get dey ´check´ each month.

Any dizzy spell the Hildebeast might have can be atttributed to post-viral syndrome - from the Bengahzi flu.

-And she was not hospitalized for anything but recovering from her pre-book tour cosmetic surgery - which now that my wife brought my attention to it - anyone can tell the difference.

But the reason she won´t win is the reason Slick won - the economy.

-Millions more are about to become subjugated by obamacare/democratcare and they are going to be in shock and angry.

-But more importantly the bear market rally since Obama took office is all but over, and the rally since March ´09 will be revealed to be as phony as the president presiding over it.

-The next meltdown will cause severe and prolonged pain and act as a rod on the backs of many a previously democrat voting fools.
And when a fool just can´t vote for a democrat- he stays home.

-The GOP will win by sheer misfortune of the democrats and the serious investigations with special prosecutors will begin - and go on for years.

-Hidebeast´s legacy will be lying under oath"I cannot recall", failing to pass the NY bar exam twice, the Benghazi fail, and being part of the worse administration in our history.

A reasonable rule of thumb is that the electorate is divided roughly one third each Right, Center and Left. So it is strange - to me at least - that some folks think that running someone perceived to be toward the center will ensure a HRC victory. Any student of politics will say the opposite - you co-opt the center and paint the other guy as an extremist. Pitting someone perceived to be far right-wing would in all likelihood usher in another Clinton White House. The usual trick is to go for the Independent vote. Yes, some on the far right or far left will stay home if they feel their particular issues are not being addressed by the nominee, but far more more in the center will vote to avoid a fringe candidate like the plague.

Folks here often claim that Romney and Dole lost because they were somehow too centrist. They were also running against an incumbent. Note also that Dole was running against a pre-Monica Clinton and a Perot in the mix. Romney was running against the entire press corp and America´s "White Guilt" complex.

Incumbents are tough to beat - most Presidents get to serve two terms - which may explain why the GOP "A team" largely sat out 2012. It is easy to paint the unknown quantity as extreme. Obama could run ads claiming that Romney was going to end abortion - all Romney could do was deny it. One of the big advantages the incumbent has is while you may not like their record, they are now known quantities and making up stuff to use against them is harder to do.

So how did Reagan win? Wasn´t he considered right wing? Reagan won because (1) he communicated well - and he was likable and demonstrated a sense of humor. That is essential. (2) while not an incumbent he was a two-term governor of CA thus a known quantity and could not be demonized (3) his opponent was hopeless.

Does that mean Cruz should not run? No, but it means if Cruz cannot connect somehow to the center, the Independents, he should not bother running. The press will tear him a new one and we could repeat Goldwater-Johnson.

The assertion that the center is who elects the winner has been around for a long time. It made sense when I first heard it but no longer.
More accurate would be the candidate gets elected who is the most dynamic; the most Hollywood. The most memorable and likeable.
With most lofo voters (dead and alive), the wimpy quiet guy is a sure loser.

As to the people who stayed home being the problem, what is left? Our establishment L Dotters said to wait till after the last election, then change the party from within. You see the luck we have had there. If there are only two mechanics in town and they are both lousy crooks, eventually you will quit taking your car (and money) to either one. To keep going to the "least bad" insures that there will never be a good one.

to a raft of the above, may one respectfully opine that the upcoming election must not be won by pandering to the electorate, but rather through persuasion to your principled stances.
And for those who, as some above, have only scorn for principles, I class you among TWANLOC. Those who are no longer our countrymen. This nation, this shining city on a hill, was not created nor maintained by bidding up the Bread & Circuses approach. "Our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor" is incompatible with the defeatism of the "wiser heads" of the Rockefeller Republicans.

Again, could someone prove that Conservatives stayed home in the last election. That has become an old wives tale to explain Romney´s horrible campaign and his subsequent statement that he thought he was ahead.

Obama received 4 million less votes than he did in 2008. I voted for Romney although he wasn´t the candidate I would have selected.

Any good campaign organization knows where they stand at anytime during the campaign. If they don´t, they don´t have a clue on how to run one. As far voter fraud and Democrats voting more than once, that probably is true to a large extent. To that I say what is the Republican Party doing to reverse a continuing cheating practice by the Democrat Party. That is what I thought... nothing.

I don´t think the Black vote will turn out for Hillary. Remember, Blacks voted 96% for Obama and unless Hillary claims some Black blood in her ancestry, she will be dead in the water.

#34…My theory is that Obama won by all the illegal votes he received. You know the people that voted for him six times like the lady in Ohio. The Maryland and Virginia voters that are still on both registers voted for him in both states. The dead and people that no longer live in Philadelphia that voted 100% of registered voter 100% for Obama.

Too many of us have a defeatist attitude and that becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy.

It´s easier to accept defeat if we admit in advance that we will lose, but we need to change our attitude and believe we can win, even if it turns out we hurt more if we don´t.

I think there is a good chance we can rid the country of democrat control for 4 years starting in 2016. I´m going to think that way, too.

I wonder how many of those of us with this throw-in-the-towel attitude went berserk when the US soccer coach came out and said we can´t win?

Women, God bless them, are hard wired (usually) to institute and promote a "Family" structure wherein assets are shared and ´fairness´ is enforced by maternal force.

Men...are forced to deal with the larger picture wherein assets are won and captured through hard work, and creative advantage.

"Fairness", in Man-World, is all about ground-rules.....not outcomes.

Women mean well but they are the first to fall prey to the snake-oil pitch of the leftist Utopians.

In a "Democracy" where a few points can decide an important election women have managed to help elect the worst Commie Bastids imaginable.

Excuse me for being so rude as to point this out.

Good intentions have, once again, paved the toll-road to Hell.

It is a myth that women support a candidate just because she´s a woman. Hillary will get the same liberal women vote that O got. The independent women´s vote is hardly a lock for Hillary and no Republican or conservative women are going to vote for her. She is also a poor role model, having ridden her husband´s coat tails into politics.

The female vote the PIAPS would get would be the same women that would vote for the Democrat, regardless. Turnout is the key, and I just don´t see her charmless self being able to stir up the slackers. If the Republicans nominate another candidate that lacks the fire in the belly and lacks the communication skills necessary she´ll win because the conservative base won´t be fired up. BTW, I seriously doubt anyone at this site sat out the 2012 election, but without a candidate who can fire up the base we won´t be able to overcome the election fraud, yet again.

Believing Obama won because of illegal votes is rather silly. He won because his team understood statistics better than the teams Romney and McCain assembled. They used that knowledge to assemble larger vote totals and a larger tally in the electoral college. The ethnic groups that favor the Democrats are increasing in number. Democrats are going to win national elections until Republicans find a group they can convince to switch sides. I don´t see that happening for a long time.

For most of 2014, the Democrats looked on the looming congressional elections with considerable dread. All of the standard indicators portend an unhappy outcome for their party.(snip) Then came last week’s Hobby Lobby ruling. In that imminently sensible Supreme Court decision, the Democrats found an unhoped-for opportunity for shameless demagoguery. Indulging their gift for Orwellian rhetoric, they declared that the Court had re-opened hostilities in the fabled “war on women.” (snip) Millions of American women, they thundered, will now be denied access to birth control because five male justices sided with the closet theocrats who own Hobby Lobby.

I’ve never had many charitable things to say about John Kerry, but now it’s worse; I feel sorry for him. Kerry certainly isn’t an evil fellow, merely a run-of-the-mill narcissistic opportunist who has risen to the top of the political heap. I admire his service in Vietnam; many children of privilege — did someone mention George W. Bush? — found ways to avoid the war. If he had any stellar accomplishments during his 28 years in the Senate, they are not etched in my memory. He proved to be an inept presidential candidate in 2004. But now, the spin goes,

I had just turned 22 and I had the self-esteem of a squashed toad. This may explain why I was having an affair with a married 36-year-old sound mixer whom I’d met on a film shoot a couple of months earlier. I’d had only one serious boyfriend by this time and recently had been asked for the first time, “Can I buy you a drink?” by a man.

Now that the Supreme Court has issued its ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, the legal fight over the Affordable Care Act will shift a few blocks away to another Washington courtroom, where a far more fundamental challenge to Obamacare is about to be decided by the powerful U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit. Indeed, if Hobby Lobby will create complications for Obamacare, Halbig vs. Burwell could trigger a full cardiac arrest. The Halbig case challenges the massive federal subsidies in the form of tax credits made available to people with financial need who enroll in the program. In crafting the act, Congress created incentives

Why SCOTUS Ruled in
Favor of Hobby Lobby

This morning’s Supreme Court ruling in Burwell v. Hobby Lobby will doubtless precipitate a flood of stories from the establishment “news” media claiming that an entrenched cadre of conservative justices have dealt a grievous blow to the reproductive freedom of women and somehow endowed corporations with religious rights. These reports should be ignored as so much hysterical nonsense. What the Court actually said was that the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) requires the government to provide closely held corporate objectors to Obamacare’s contraception mandate the same accommodation it already provides nonprofit organizations.

´Suspicious´: Experts, GOP lawmakers

Computer experts and Republican lawmakers are poking holes in IRS claims that the agency did all it could to retrieve embattled ex-official Lois Lerner´s allegedly "lost" emails, which the agency blames on a 2011 hard-drive crash. The email revelation already has prompted three congressional hearings -- with more likely to come -- as lawmakers grow more skeptical of the explanation and look for inconsistencies in the story. Among them, they point to a flurry of emails from mid-2011 between Lerner and the agency´s information technology team about the alleged computer failure which was attached to the agency´s mea culpa delivered to

Irritating phrases and words are not confined to political circles, or solely to Washington, although here in the nation’s capital they burrow in and proliferate like obsolete, but entrenched, government programs. This is a call to arms to fight them—but only metaphorically. 15: “WAR ON [FILL IN THE BLANK]” Syria’s civil war has produced 2.5 million refugees and a death toll of 160,000, a tragedy that has galvanized neither major political party into action. So next time a Democrat brays about the so-called Republican “war on women” or a Republican trumpets the Obama administration’s “war on coal,” tell them

I´m old enough to remember when American liberals cherished the freedom of speech guaranteed by the First Amendment. They celebrated especially the freedom accorded those with unpopular beliefs and protested attempts to squelch the expression of differing opinions. Today things are different. American liberals are not challenging the Supreme Court rulings extending First Amendment protection to nude dancers, flag burners and students wearing antiwar armbands. They are content to leave these as forms of protected free speech. But political speech is a whole other thing. Currently 43 Democratic senators are so-sponsoring the constitutional amendment introduced by New Mexico´s Sen. Tom Udall to amend

I spent a lot of 2008 feeling crushed. It was exhilarating covering Hillary Clinton’s historic run for the presidency, but there was so much about the race that was backward and retro, more 1958 than 2008. It wasn’t just the media’s goggle-eyed questions about whether the country was “ready” for a female president or the inane things that spilled out of people’s mouths on cable television—though let’s remember that Christopher Hitchens called Clinton “soppy and bitchy,” Mike Barnicle compared her to “everyone’s first wife standing outside a probate court,” and Keith Olbermann suggested that the Democratic Party needed “somebody who

It´s time to pass the hat for Hillary Clinton. The former secretary of state has tried to distance herself from her weeks-ago assertion that after husband Bill left the White House, the couple were "dead broke." She told PBS that the line was "inartful," but only after she told a British paper that she does not count herself among the "truly well-off." Nobody knows the troubles she´s seen. In the United Kingdom pushing her latest book -- for which she received a reported eight-figure advance -- Clinton told The Guardian that the Clintons should not be seen as out-of-touch swells: "We

The odds are that you think President Obama’s foreign policy is a failure. That’s the scathing consensus forming, with just 36 percent of Americans approving of Obama’s foreign policy in a New York Times/CBS News poll released this week. Foreign policy used to be a source of strength for the president, and now it’s dragging him down — and probably other Democrats with him. Mitch McConnell, the Senate minority leader, warns that Obama “has weakened the national security posture of the United States.” Trent Franks, a Republican member of the House from Arizona, cites foreign policy to suggest that Obama is “the

Rebel Pundit interviewed the community this week about Barack Obama’s open border policies and his spending on the illegal immigrant community. Let’s just say – they are NOT HAPPY. One local resident even says, “Barack Obama will go down as the worst president ever elected.” The Chicago resident below says: “With the president setting aside all these funds for immigrants and forsaken African-American community and African-American families, I think that’s a disgrace. And Barack is from the heart of 55th in the City of Chicago… He will probably go down as the worst president ever elected. Bill Clinton was the African-American president.“

Sarah Palin wants to impeach Barack Obama. In an op-ed article published last week, the former Republican vice presidential nominee declared that the crisis on the southern border (where young illegal immigrants are being detained) "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´No, mas´." The Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner, thinks that´s loco. (Technically, he said, "I disagree".) For Republicans hoping to avoid the kind of drama that might derail what looks to be a very good midterm election year, this kind of call is both a nuisance and a trend. In a world where there are no

On April 1, the U.S. economy dropped a whopping 2.9 percent for the first three months of the year (no fooling). The American workforce participation rate fell to a 40-year low. One-third of people aged 18-29 have moved back in with their parents. Millions of Americans this summer will enjoy yet another “staycation”: They just can’t afford to go to the beach or the mountains, even for a week — again. (Snip) Forget that the United States is deep into what Mr. Obama dramatically declares a “humanitarian crisis,” that the Middle East is a powder keg about to blow, that Iraq has all but fallen to Islamist terrorists. (Why not forget; the president has.)

A Fox News exclusive reported this morning by Jana Winter inexplicably buried the lede. Winter reports that several dead children have been discovered “washed up along the riverbank” of the Rio Grande, but fails to note that there have been no reports by the Obama administration on this. This indicates a pattern of covering up dead illegal alien kids by the Obama administration. It was two weeks before news was reported on the sole child death acknowledged by the Obama administration, Gilberto Ramos, a 15 year-old boy from Guatemala whose body was found in the Texas brush dead from the

Hawking, 71, the world-renowned theoretical physicist and former Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge, had accepted an invitation to headline the fifth annual president´s conference, Facing Tomorrow, in June, which features major international personalities, attracts thousands of participants and this year will celebrate Peres´s 90th birthday.

The Illinois Democrat said, "I think it is shameful that in the Congress of the U.S. we see members of Congress engendering and creating fear of children. We should be protecting children, not creating fear of them." Yesterday,

The “ugly American” has gotten a lot uglier over the past few weeks, from the streets of California to the halls of Congress and state houses around the country. A growing number of our fellow Americans have taken on grotesque features, in looks and sounds, in reaction to the thousands of children from Central America who have crossed our borders as they flee poverty and violence in hope for something better. Sadly, the arrival of these youngsters has been greeted by flag-waving, sign-carrying, Bible-thumping and Constitution-quoting citizens demanding that they not be received here and that they be returned immediately to their

Those grievances range from (but are not limited to) Benghazi, the IRS scandal, the "targeting" of conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza, illegal immigration, the Hobby Lobby Supreme Court case, the treatment of war veterans, the chaos in Iraq and deep reservations about President Obama. "Five years ago, I stated that Obama would take the country apart piece-by-piece, that he would cause a civil war in this country," Voight read on Saturday in a statement on

On July 16, comic character Archie Andrews, of Life With Archie, will die after being shot while protecting gay friend Kevin Keller. Keller is "Archie Comics´ first openly gay character." According to the Associated Press, Keller is "a married military veteran and newly elected senator who´s pushing for more gun control in Riverdale after his husband was involved in a shooting." Archie Comics´ publisher and co-CEO Jon Goldwater said the way in which Archie will die was carefully chosen. While he could have been killed saving "Betty" or saving "Veronica," doing so for Keller was something "that would really resonate
