1. Amy Klobuchar or Charlie Crist, if Christ proves himself to be a solid democrat. nt

The Castros are too young, as are Patrick Murphy and Joe Kennedy III.

13. Jerry's age hasn't stopped him one bit. He is the singular greatest Gov. of Calif. ever. EVER.

 

What is this ageism all the time. It is downright ugly.
Ageism is just as bad as any other ism.

reminds me all the time when I hear some young whippersnapper fires someone over 45 and hires a tween for the same job just so they don't have to pay benefits.

BTW, this same "too old"blah blah blah is the reason the John Edwards fans in 2004 got John Edwards the VP(and we all know that was the single worst choice ever for VP.
Sarah was just way over her head, and Quayle had a specific reason 41 picked him.
(and neither campaigned for the job, it was out of the blue for each of them).

But the deviousness of Edwards, cold and calculating, was just the worst, and should never be repeated as he avidly campaigned for it in 2004(then tried to coral a position in 2008).
horror.

Should have been Senator/Gov. Bob Graham in 2000 and 2004.
but they said he was too old, too ill, too obsessive with his diaries(at just the time Cheney had no diaries, or logs released at all).

imho. feel free to disagree with it.

5. I would love Charlie Crist as VP. Or Joe Biden for a 3rd term as VP(history again).

 

For the continuation of all things President Obama for another 8 years. 2017-25.

Charlie would be great in that he in the past has spit in Jeb's and the Bush's faces on important issues at important times. Which was at the time unheard of, very brave.

(btw, I didn't hit any of the buttons above, gave my answer in the response title).

Two first times can not win. Sad? Sure. True? Likely. Would two African Americans have won in 2008?

I'm not a politician, an unheard of thing in Washington. I would actually speak truth to them all, also an unheard of thing. I'd be booted out the back door before I unpacked.

25. First one must determine if she will run in 2016!

And I, along with many DUers, think that many are jumping the gun here.

First, let's get through the midterm election in 2014. Then, and only then, should we even begin to worry about the 2016 presidential candidate.

For Christ's sake, this is rubbish! I would vote for Hillary in a second, but the campaign is two years, or more, from beginning.

So, stop ringing those cockamaimie bells.

26. The most popular political figure in the State of Texas

 

If she can somehow find a way to get Texas, nothing else those GOP a-holes do will matter.

Someone who will help her win Texas.....

28. Your poll begs the question, or, actually, two questions:

1. Will she run?

2. Will she win the nomination?

So I didn't bother to vote. I'll worry abou Hilary's running mate after she's won the nomination.

31. Robert Rubin

If he's right there in DC, it'll save on transportation costs for the cash that she'll shovel to him and his cronies.
