The first 2016 Democratic primary straw poll

Of course I know this is ridiculous - but since others have brought up the point...

Who would you at this time be the most inclined to support for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in 2016?

1. Clinton KR

Hilliary Clinton's candidacy and election could, under a certain set of plausible circumstances, end the Republican Party.

If the Repukes get taken over by hard right teabaggers and nominate a knuckle dragger and Hilliary comes out of a Dem. Primary season unscathed. If the economy continues to show growth into the 2016 election. With Obama, Bill and Hilliary, as well as a very good VP candidate on the trail, we can see a 58% to 40% victory. We could carry 38 states. We could see 35% gender gaps. It could be the Republican Armageddon.

It would be beautiful.

5. Hillary at the head of the ticket with Elizabeth as Vice

would be my dream ticket.
I really want us to have a woman President and Vice during my lifetime. I might make it to this election but I doubt I'll make it to the next and the next and the next and on and on.

6. Although I choose not to weigh in yet on "who will run in 2016", I have a point to make about 16 ...

I chose not to vote for Hillary in the 2008 Ohio primary. Not for getting the "first black/African American president", because the history would have been made with the "first woman U.S. president".

I felt that, despite the "liberally-biased media's" penchant for ignoring (or "forgetting") the past problems/mistakes of candidates (at least, Republican candidates), the "l.b.m." would manage to remind the voters about all the "scandals" of HRC. (True or totally fabricated).

Hillary was, and would return to being, one of the most polarizing figures since the moment Bill Clinton announced he was considering running for President. Mostly not her doing, but the "lbm" sure as hell enabled the detractors (to describe them "nicely").

7. Right now, Hillary

She has the best chance of winning out of any Democrat or Republican, she's well-respected worldwide, etc.

I'm keeping my eye on Martin O'Malley, though. He could play the spoiler role President Obama did in 2008.

8. By 2016 there should be a number of Governors and Senators to chose from

All but Warren are old, tired, recycled candidates.
