1. I hope this move is temporary.

I want him running a presidential campaign in 2016.

3. Interesting

I saw yesterday on Martin Bashir that Dr. James Peterson (who is a regular on Bashir's show) was also officially made a contributer as well.

Am thinking that Axelrod has appeared on Mourning Schmoe the most and may end up on in the mornings (and scattered through the day the rest of the time like Rendell).

4. Shame. He could be Karl Rove with a conscience

and yet he's doing this. Oh well...I guess it could be worse. He could be doing what Dennis Kucinich is doing.

6. Hope it lasts just as long as Hillary45's vacation does, and he is right there with her all the way.

 

BTW, I don't want Hillary wading into any controversial issue of the day the next 2 years.
Let the surrogates and Bill wade into those areas.

The ones free from running for higher office can take care of the issues
(the CEOs, the banks, the Gun issue, the foreign affairs, Keystone, etc.

No need to give anyone anything at all on the way to annhiliating the republican party in 2014 and 2016.

Axelrod and Plouffe are both genius'. The smartest run campaigns ever were in 2008 and 2012.

9. Hillary and Axelrod do not have any kind of relationship

If she runs I assume she will use her own people.

10. Axelrod wants the Obama agenda to continue. Therefore in 2016 they will.

 

Just like President Bill worked hard for President Obama.

It is in everyone's best interest to all work together to advance each others causes.

And Axelrod and Plouffe don't need to be the ones with the title, long as they are all working the same way 2012 was worked.

13. Hillary was a hawk on the Iraq War.

I don't think she will be running.

14. Hillary Clinton waded with all four limbs into the

Iraq War, and I don't think she will have an easy time wading out of it. And maybe she shouldn't try.

That was a huge "mistake" in judgment. Can we afford another president who makes big decisions based on questionable facts?
