You telling me... Out of 300,000,000 qualified US citizens, we got the same family running for president for almost 30 years?


So much for Democracy?

This question might only be asked on the Daily show. Forget the news outlets asking this.

I can't tell you enough how happy it would make me if both of these families rode off into the sunset.

 

We need some freshness in DC, but instead dumb voters will continue to elect the exact same people over and over again.

 

In the past 35 years, we have had 2 good Presidents, that's pretty sad.

I thought only oligarchy governments had few families but America is facing the possible scenario, even though like Arsen said, 300 million people. Really baa sheeple! Ra ra ra go Hiltlery or Bush pt 3!
Even the GOP is scared of Rand Paul that the establishment is starting a Jeb rally and Hiltlery is already crowned by the left. Check out how states are closing doors on third parties but most of the time third parties are pawns for the two parties. Go ahead, pick the losing proposition.

“When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” the moderator asks.

 

 

Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton. Some of what hasn’t been finished may go on to be finished, so when President Obama asked me to be Secretary of State I agreed,” Clinton responded.
 
She continued, “We had the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression, we had two wars. We had continuing threats from all kinds of corners around the world that we had to deal with. So it was a perilous time frankly. What he said to me was, ‘Look, I have to be dealing with the economic crisis, I want you to go out and represent us around the world.’ And it was a good division of labor because we needed to make it clear to the rest of the world, that we were going to get our house in order. We were going to stimulate, and grow, and get back to positive growth and work with our friends and partners.”
 
“So I think we did that. I’m very proud of the stabilization and the really solid leadership that the administration provided that I think now, leads us to be able to deal with problems like Ukraine because we’re not so worried about a massive collapse in Europe and China — trying to figure out to do with all their bond holdings and all the problems we were obsessed with. I think we really restored American leadership in the best sense. That, once again — people began to rely on us as setting the values, setting the standards. I just don’t want to lose that because we have a dysfunctional political situation in Washington. Then of course, a lot of particulars, but I am finishing my book so you’ll be able to read all about it.”

 

 

Wow. Read my book lol

I would vote for Elmo over Hilary Clinton. I don't know enough about Jeb Bush to make any decisions about him right now.

  • Is this shaping up to be a Hilary v. Jeb contest or is it another Hilary v. Giuliani prediction that will end up not happening?

     

I think if there's another Giuliani in 2016 it's Chris Christie.

  • Outside of those two, who really has the best shot on each side?

     

For the GOP, it'll be a clusterfug either way. Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Mike Huckabee with Scott Walker in the mix. For the dems, if Hillary doesn't run it's going to be one as well. I don't think Biden cruises to the nomination if he runs in that scenario due to his age.

 

If it is Bush v. Clinton, can you foresee a legitimate Independent rising? (He'd have to be loaded with adequate donors)

 

Doubtful. I've heard Bernie Sanders (socialist Senator from Vermont) is considering running, but he'd be another Ralph Nader at best.

  • Have any sleepers?

     

For the democrats, Brian Schweitzer (former Montana Governor), for the GOP Governor Bill Haslam of Tennessee.

 

Who do you think it ends up being vying for the office?

 

Hillary Clinton vs. Mike Huckabee with Clinton winning comfortably.

I would say that Raegan and Clinton were both pretty good Presidents.

 

Not great, but I think those days are over.
