Looking Ahead To 2016 Politics
Four months...or...four years?
It's not a race, it's a marathon, and it just goes on and on!
Looking Ahead To 2016 Politics:
Rick Santorum was working hard in July 2012 to keep me in the loop with weekly emails. Does that mean he plans to run again in 2016? If so, he’s a planner alright.
By then Hussein Barack Obama will, for sure, be almost-ex-President Obama, while Willard Mitt Romney still might be trying to win his first term though by early 2015 he was saying he's not running for 2016..
Newt Gingrich will be considered “a senior citizen from the good ole days” and Secretary H. R. Clinton will have published her memoirs with how many hundreds of countries she visited for America. (She will be passing through 69 years of aging by then.)
Surely very few who were “in the fray of Super PAC’s 2012” will still be up and running in 2016 when one, or both major parties will see a scrambling for the front position, and we may even have a valid Third Party by then …perhaps the Tepee Party (“The Party of the Really Big Tent”) or the Tequila Party (“The Real ‘Happy Days Are Here Again’ Party”)?
It will only be a shadow of the 2012 campaign Romney and his campaigners lost, and by then, he will be 69, too, and like Hillary, eligible for Social Security….if it’s still around for anyone to be on.)
Jeb Bush, Governor Christie, Ted Cruz, John Kerry, Marco Rubio, Ron Paul, Governor Walker, Elizabeth Warren, and "Anybody But" Clinton, will all be out their on the hustings and shaking fat pockets, while claiming to be in touch with the common folk who will have less and less sway in 2016.

In theory 2016 votes for president could be so divided that neither major candidate wins the 270 electoral college votes needed to win the presidency outright. If that happens, Caongress decides.
With less than 6 months until Election Day for the 2016 national election in the USA, it seems time for the real contest for POTUS to begin (the rest was only a prelude.) It is "growing time" now.
