Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Thu Dec 6, 2012, 01:40 PM

2016 will not be Clinton vs Bush, because the world be quite different and

those names generate a been there done that attitude.

The cyber era will produce new players. My pick is Sen Gillibrand (D-NY) vs former senator/male model of Massachusetts, Scott Brown.

Too bad we have to wait 31/2 yr to find out.

6. I wouldn't say that


I think she has been a very strong positive influence and advocate for us. 8 yrs. first lady 8 yrs. in the Senate and 4 yrs. Sec. of state.
After 20 yrs. of political service. I would hope she would feel like she has "done her part."
Sec. is a particularly exhausting. I would think she would be ready for a slower pace. Maybe 4 yrs. off will be so reinvigorating that she is hungry for it- maybe not.
Most people want to retire at some point because they are ready to slow their pace.

We'll have to see what she decides.

3. I would like to see us nominate non-politicians for the problems we face

We need jobs that pay good & have living wages, Richard Trumka is an expert. We also have an economics problem, Paul Krugman won a Nobel Peace prize in economics, he seems like a good pick for VP.

Trumka/Krugman 2016: Common Sense!

4. Well you know the textbook definition of insanity...

Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. If we keep running the same people nothing will ever get done. It's time to find some new leaders out there.

5. Hillary and Jeb should run on the same ticket

Then we wouldn't have hear about 'compromise' and 'bipartisanship' for 8 fucking years
