But it is the 2016 national scene on which Brown is most forthright, declaring that Hillary's a shoo-in to win if she runs, and "I can assure you [Hillary] will be a candidate in 2016."

Getting the nomination should be a much different game than her unsuccessful 2008 bid, when the aura of inevitability her campaign sought to use to scare off competitors failed to scare off Senator Barack Obama.

For 2016, "everybody fears Hillary Clinton," says Brown. "They believe that all she has to do is continue to breath and in 2016 she'll be elected to the presidency of the United States."

He is unimpressed with the chances of any Republican to defeat her, and he expects the Democrats to focus on snagging Clinton's vice presidential spot rather than challenge her for the presidential nomination.

Well, she certainly scares me. At least Sarah Palin was amusing.

Life is a hideous business, and from the background behind what we know of it peer daemoniacal hints of truth which make it sometimes a thousandfold more hideous.

I'll admit that she used to concern me.  But at THIS point all she can do is finish beating the corpse into something unrecognizable.  If America votes for a continuation of the policies of Obama then my last worries over the judgement against my nation will be at an end.  In a way it might actually be comforting to watch as justice gets delivered.  I never thought I'd live to see my country as it is today.

Face it, whoever will be voted in will be either Republican or Democrat... and I fail to see many competent in either camp.

Hey it's funny to me you should say that, my great grandfather use to say the very same thing up until the early 50's, before he passed away. At least that was what I was told by my late grandfather, though I never heard my grandfather say anything like that. But now that my father is in his 70's, he damn near says the same thing. His words:  "Thought I'd never see the day when this country would go to crap!"


Aaaah older generations...everything is going down the crapper when they reach their senior years, including their health. God bless 'em!

LOL! :w00t:

Hillary will most likely, not be running for President in 2016....
After all, she is pushing 70.

The most obvious factor militating against runs by these Democratic power players is their age. Biden would turn 74 right after Election Day 2016, and Clinton would turn 69 just before it. Both of them may have other things they want to do with their lives before it’s too late. Clinton, for instance, has made no secret of her yen for a grandchild. And she and her husband are reportedly hunting for a vacation home in the Hamptons, suggesting she has a slower pace in mind.

Clinton also has many long-standing interests that have had to compete for her time during her stints as first lady of Arkansas and the nation, as a senator from New York, and as secretary of State. They include children, the foster-care system and, perhaps most important, the economic and political plight of women around the world. Her most famous speech as first lady catalogued abuses against women and hammered home the message: "Human rights are women’s rights, and women’s rights are human rights.” As notable as what she said was where she said it -- a United Nations women’s conference in Beijing. It is easy to imagine her setting up her own organization, or a branch of her husband’s Clinton Global Initiative, to focus full-time on issues affecting women.

I hope she doesn't run.  My mom is pushing 100 years and she loves Hillary for some reason.

I pity Hillary, but don't fear her.

And I have absolutely no fear that she will become the next president of this country.

Cankles had one of the worst runs as SecState ever (soon to be surpassed by John Kerry) and has failed at everything she has done (remember the baking cookies episode after Hillarycare cost the dems the house and senate). Her one accomplishment was staying married to misogynist Bill Clinton and sucking up the embarrassment and abuse to keep the woman beater in office.  Corrupt, dishonest and lacking any morals makes her a great democrat candidate.  The idiocracy reelected Obama, however, so anything is possible.

The thing I've never understood about the women that support her is how they can just overlook how she was treated by the Democrat Party in 2008.  

I mean she was the suposidly the shoe in for 2008 until Obama came along.

So basically you have an older woman who was kicked to the curb for the younger, good-looking, less qualified male.

Isn't that the same **** that the women of her generation have been fighting against their entire life?  And the party that they have put so much faith in for being so progressive in how it treats women just spit on all of them.

Honestly, no one treats women with more disdain than the democrats.  Hilliary's claim to the throne is that she supported the violent misogynist Bill.  That is it. Her term as secstate was an abysmal failure but the democrats don't care.
