    Hillary Clinton announced that she will be running for President in 2016. Do you intend to vote

    for Ms. Clinton to be president?  Why? Why not?

    I will vote for Hilary if no better democrat steps forward. Personally I would prefer Elizabeth Warren, but it's not clear if she will run, or if she could get the proper funding for a nomination.

      I would also prefer Elizabeth Warren, but if Hilary is the Democratic candidate, I'll vote for her.

    No I won't. Clinton represents the continuation of the Obama's policy. She accepted millions from corporations that invested in her. She will apply their policies. We have to break the mold. And vote for an underdog. Either I will pick an independent or nobody. I had enough of those incompetents. They chose corporations over people than let's corporations vote for them and let see how far they will go...

      That's a dangerous line of thinking, there. Think of it like this: A vote for an Independent or for nobody = a vote for Ted Cruz or Rand Paul. And that should give you nightmares.

      By independent I meant  independent from any lobbies, corporations, big money. I meant someone who has a very long curriculum vitae stating his fervent involvement in the people's cause. I meant someone who has fought and still fighting corporations.

      Sometimes you don't have a choice. I don't like Hillary, but if she's the only thing keeping the Republicans out of the White House and out of the Supreme Court, then I'll take it.

      Don't let the perfect be the enemy of the good (or tolerable).

      "As a last resort" I also will vote for Elizabeth Warren, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, or any progressive Democrat. I believe that if the Republican win the Presidency in 2016 and create a "Political Trifecta". A Republican Federal Government.

      If a Republican wins, I am so outta here, whether it be by plane or by handgun. It WILL be the death of the middle class, the death of social freedoms, and the death of the First Amendment. The U.S. will be at-once and firmly dead.

      I actually don't own a .45, just a shotgun. I am not worried about the government overthrowing the people as long as there are republicans to keep the democrats in check. That is the beauty of checks and balances!

      I guess they want the poor to starve to death for their own good?

      Not as suspicious as the wealthy democrat politicians that pretend they are champions of the poor. Why would dem try to eliminate poverty since that is their voting base?

      The answer is simple: By making the lives of the poor better, those same people will be more likely to vote for the party that helped them out. You don't get votes by keeping poor people poor, because, surprise surprise, they're going to remember--

    I would never vote for her. I think she is an awful person and her husband is even worse. The reality is that he would be running the show and they both would embarrass the heck out of us. The only reason she will get votes is if there is not another viable option for die hard democrats who would never vote for a republican no matter what. Don't believe me? Look at 2008.

    I am not an American so, I can't vote in an US election, but I image how she perform as Secretary of State can be a reference, to what so of President she would be.  It would definitely be interesting, if Hiltary Clinton is elected, we would have a married couple both served as Emperor of the most powerful country in the world,

      How she performed as SoS is she ignored pleas for more security in Benghazi, left 4 people to be murdered, blamed it on a You Tube video and then said "What difference does it make?" There is your performance reference.

    Yes, I am definitely voting. And I will flip the lever for the Republican candidate for president, no matter who he or she is.

    I have been voting for presidents going all the way back to 1968, and I have never voted for a Democrat and I never will.

    In my opinion, the worst Republican in the world is better than any Democrat. And one of the reasons why I feel that way is,  opposite of the case when it comes to a Democratic president, no Republican president has ever ordered two powerful nuclear bombs to be dropped on thousands of innocent civilians (remember Harry Truman, D-MO?)

    I'm pretty sure I'd vote for a rusty shovel before Killary Shillton. I haven't finished my research into the views of all the Republican candidates, but the last several decades of voting trends indicate that a Republican is going to win it.

    It'll be an even easier task if H.C. doesn't just drop out. She doesn't stand a chance.

    It seems that rather than searching out and backing a female candidate who could actually be a good, qualified president and an inspiring role model for future generations, the Democrat party is instead dredging the bottom of the barrel for anything with a vagina.

    I will most definitely NOT be voting for "her!!"    Why?  Because quite fortunately I am blessed with an excellent brain, solid morals, common sense, respect for my fellow Americans, loyalty and pride in our Country.  I have all my senses and faculties in fine condition.  I can see and hear & identify a LIAR, phony, sneaky, greedy, and totally untrustworthy individual .....which describes Ms HC to a Tee.   
    Sure, a woman in the White House may be a nice thing.....but at what cost?  Just how much MORE damage are we able to tolerate?  The fact that she is female means nothing more than she is one of the only 2 sexes we have.  Odds.....we all deal with that. 
    I am not willing to gamble every last thing our Country has stood for since it began.....because of some idiotic notion that we need a woman as President.  Certainly not the poor excuse of a woman she represents.
    Where ever she lives (any or ALL of her residences) she can have them painted WHITE.  That's as close as she will ever get to being in any White House, if we have any hope or luck at all. 
    I wouldn't go so far as to kill myself as someone here mentioned.  We won't have to do ourselves in.....she will do that for us, quickly & easily if she's in charge! 
    Hilary fans.....Please, I beg of you.  Snap out of it.  Thank you.
