      Hillary, what better way to reduce federal payrolls than getting more foreign service employees slaughtered by Muslim Terrorists.

        Dear Sir, who would YOU suggest as a better presidential candidate than the esteemed Ms. Clinton?

          Wouldn't that be Mrs. Clinton?

          I said what I meant.  Hillary is my suggestion.  Who better to keep accelerating the world toward disaster than someone who shares the current President's values.

            As much as I am opposed to Hillary Clinton being our next president, I have to say that I believe that even she is conservative when compared to the POTUS.  She's a true, liberal democrat; he's more liberal than that.

              She has been very effective in reducing the influence of America around the world, much as the current President and she would see his intentions through to the end.  She likes to talk like her pragmatic husband but she has much much more in common with the angry activist woman who was asked to leave the Watergate hearings.  She would be a better Obama clone than Biden, though Biden doesn't have a cogent thought that isn't shoveled into his giant melon by Obama advisers.

                You could be right.  Maybe I'm just so displeased with the POTUS that anybody seems to look better right now.

              Yes. Obama is so far to the left that he's almost...halfway...to...center...

                Actually, I enjoyed your graph, as it suggest two points I have made in other forums.

                1.  Republicans and democrats are quite similar compared to politicians of other countries.  To Americans, we believe our two primary parties are worlds apart.  In reality, they're quite close.

                2.  Where have all the true conservatives (Right-Libertarian) gone?  We haven't had a true conservative president in decades, and few in Congress can claim the title of conservative.

                How is it possible that a man supported by more than 70% of his population be authoritarian? It is Bachar Al-Assad. And how can they position Hollande as a libertarian. It is definitely biased. The world is upside down.

    I'm not really thrilled with any of my "conservative" choices.  Isn't that the problem the GOP has, among others?  With some hesitancy, I choose an unknown, James Risch.

        Rand Paul won't survive the primary

        Ted Cruz is the scary one.......but he was born in Canada, so I'm sure the Tea Partiers won't support someone who was born in another country.

    retief2000 is so misinformed about liberalism and the current President it's almost funny. I'm very liberal, but I like Chris Christie a lot. I think he's honest and devoted to serving the people even if I may disagree with him on some things. If I was going to vote for a Republican, I would seriously consider him.

      I haven't been clear enough, I think it should be Hillary.  Who is better qualified to preside over the end of America than Hillary.

        The idea that Hillary or Obama are presiding over the end of America because they're anti-American or socialists is so stupid and ill-informed as to be funny.

          Read into it what you wish. (pretty sure I said nothing about them being anti-American or socialist - but I am stupid and unable to plant thoughts in other peoples' heads or read what has not been written)  It is action not words that speak the loudest and both these great American political figures have done marvelous and miraculous things that will end America.

        She can take a metaphorical punch but those who work for her, like Chris Stevens, have to be able to endure much more.

    Hilliary Clinton is sure to run I think and I think she will be elected the first woman president of the United States. I think that the time is right and I think she will be elected.

      It doesn't seem to matter much.  Would you rather have your head slammed into the pavement at 1000 mph or 250 mph?  The differences that exist between the GOP and the Democrat party don't add up to our liberty being preserved, our Constitution protected or our economy set right and let run free.  Neither is prepared to surrender illegitimately acquired power and control.

      Sadly, any third party President would see both Democrats and Republicans uncooperative.  It is unlikely that the leftist press would welcome a 3rd party candidate with open arms who is opposed to Democrat policies and I can't imagine voting for one who did.  So there we are.  Intractable differences.

        It's a sad situation but you are right. I don't see either party working with a third party. They can't work with each other though, so I guess I'd be happy just knowing neither of the current ones were president.

          I can think of no greater preserver of domestic liberty than political parties that cannot agree and nor hold a majority of voters or power.  I have never felt safer from government cupidity than when there is gridlock.  Sadly, we have a President who has decided that fiat is better than Constitutionally ascribed powers and proscribed limits.  In cooperation with the two parties and the courts, who have abandoned there Constitutional charge in favor of soggy headed feel-good-ism, the President is over reaching, while we watch.

    I'm going to say something that may surprise people who know me.

    Maybe we need a moderate, somebody who is really neither a republican nor a democrat.  We need something to get accomplished in Washington.  Conservatives despise President Obama's liberal agenda and fight him at every turn.  At this juncture, we need somebody who will not alienate either side, somebody who can actually do what the POTUS said he was going to do, bring both sides together.  As much as I would love to see a conservative, I wonder if what we really need is a moderate that both sides can get behind more so than would ever happen if we had somebody who was supported only by one side.  It's just a thought.  What do you think?

    independent ticket ----- Chris Christy / Collin Powell,..... if for no other reason than to watch the pundits absolutely explode,... can you imagine the media circus? the frenzy in the beginning?

    OMG i can SEE the Dems and Repubs just simply loosing it!...... Rush Limbaugh will be possessed,.. head spinning round vomiting pea soup and offering sex acts with priests,... the whole kit and caboodle,.... Al Sharpton will spontaneously combust on live TV,... just poof,... big ball of flaming camera hog,.... Chris Mathews will come UnGlued with his trade mark "HA" repeating manically like his CD is skipping (record stuck for all us old farts out there).... probably hyperventilate and pass out on set.

    But more importantly,… can you imagine,…… two middle of the road realists with histories of compromise and real action?….. Two fellows who actually live in the same reality of the rest of the world?

    Smsh….. What was I thinking
