    I have been saying for almost a year that Obama would screw up sooo and be sooo weak that Hillary would see an opening and run for the democrat nomination. She looked strong on the recent events in the Middle East particularly on Libya while Obama looked weak, confused, and indecisive. Now in this budget battle a result of Obama not doing his job and passing a budget while he had a majority in both houses, he's in a position where he could be blamed for what appears more likely, a government shut down. This could further weaken him and open the door wider to a Hillary challenge and yet ANOTHER epic fail by Obama!

      Not a chance.  First they are too similar from an ideological perspective, especially with Obama's move to the center.  You have to remember he was the more liberal choice than Hilary in the 08 primary.  Plus this is going to come down to money, and Hillary is too loyal to rock the boat on that.  After what we saw with the results from Citizens United, the dems know that they are going to have to raise a lot of cash.  Last I heard the goal is $1B,  So long answer short, she will not challenge.  If anyone does it will be someone that is far left, and they would not present much of a challenge.

            Hey Ron, how come you are not upset that Obama has kept Guantanamo open?

            Or is trying terrorists in Military courts?

            Or any of the things you derided Bush for?

            Are you a paid shill for the Obama reelection committee?

                I would have a clue because of the things you said you hated Bush for.

                But not one word against Obama for doing the same EXACT things.

                Since you didn't answer my question I can only assume you are a paid shill.

                How much do you make?

      There has to be some candidate that can serve the American citizen.  This is a better direction for your efforts rather than a total negative campaign against Obama.  American politics is all about negative tactics.

    No. I don't know if she changes her mind which is unlikely. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/20 … president/

      She might. Hillary loves power, otherwise she wouldn't have taken the path she has. And she's extremely good at the body politic.

      I think after Bill's campaigning and her own, she's pretty worn out. I don't think she would run without a very strong backing and following. But I do believe both of those are quite reasonable assumptions. If she finds an idiot gaining ground on the republican side, you can bet her hat will go back in the ring.

    I like Obama, but I like Hillary more. I would happily vote for her.

      Hillary is a tough B**ch.  And she certainly knows her way around Washington and how to handle things.  She would tell the Reps to go suck eggs, while for some reason Obama gives in too much to these childish selfish bullies.

    Hillary says she won't run, but remember, this is the same woman who assumed the 2008 nomination was hers for the taking.

    If she senses weakness on the part of Obama (and how could anyone NOT?), my guess is that she will throw her hat in the ring.

    Hil says she's done with politics. Perhaps she'll change her mind. I think she'd be a strong leader!
