5. Yup. All due respect to SOS Clinton, but...

...today I was watching the hearings and imagining what Senator Warren would have said back to Rand Paul.

She'd have stopped him in his tracks and launched into a "Senator, let me tell YOU what it means to...." smack-down.

I truly believe this.

Nothing would make me happier than her in the driver's seat.

7. Yes.

The days of the DLCThirdWay "l'm a 1980s Republican" shape shifters are over.

4. After some thought, either Hillary or Warren would be fine by me (even Pelosi!) Whatever will drive

the tea partiers even more berserk than they already are

8. Yep that is my vote as well

Personally I think Pelosi would drive them the most insane. But, I doubt she has ever wanted to be Prez.

9. Yeah, because in the next four years it's simply not possible

that someone else will rise as the obvious nominee.

Apparently I'm the only one who still remembers when Gore was going to be our nominee in 04, and Hillary, well Hillary so obviously had the 08 nomination locked up that no one else even bothered to run. Wait. What's the name of the person who just got sworn in a couple of days ago? It'll come to me.

Really. To everyone who keeps on posting these silly things, think back just a little bit over the last half dozen or so election cycles, and you'll discover that there was no way of guessing three or four years ahead who was actually going to be our next nominee.

And they had better begin building their name recognition up NOW.

12. I know people are getting sick of me saying this

but it will be neither. If one of them were the nominee I would obviously vote for them. In a primary it would depend on who's running. The last I heard no one has declared yet.

14. I wouldn't vote for Martin in the primary's

And I live in Maryland. I'd have to think hard about voting for the governor of Baltimore for President.

16. Well....

Can't say right now. Either Hillary or Joe or someone else. Gotta see who's running and who looks strong in late 2015 to decide. Until Iowa in 2008 I was still deciding who I wanted to support. Biden wasn't getting any traction. I was worried about several things regarding Hillary. Oddly, most of them wouldn't apply this time, but her age, which wasn't an issue then, is something to think about this time as it woujld be with Biden. John Edwards seemed like the demograpically smartest choice, although where I'd liked him fine for VP in '04 he seemed shrill and grating in '08. Turns out that was the least of his problems. Then Iowa happened and the world turned upside down and the impossible turned out to be very possible. I don't see anything like that happening next time around, but you never know.

18. Other.

Until late 2015 rolls around, I really don't give a shit. Let President get a start on this term before we worry about 2016. 2016 is a long way away, and a hell of a lot can happen between now and then.

Admins, thank you for "Trash This Thread".

19. so many great Americans on the good guy team, we are so fortunate :)

No need for Democrats to be rushed at all, and probably best to keep the Republicans worried & flailing for years

22. I voted Biden, but...

that's because I like him a lot, not because of the Benghazi thing.

Realistically, I'd like to see who runs - my answer could possibly change. It's a long time until the campaigning starts in earnest.
