139. She never had it at all. I find it extremely strange to consider the...
...possibility that out of 300 million Americans, the best presidential choice would be the wife of the previous Democratic president. I'm sure actual conservatives, not PNACers, but actual (yes, even likable aside from the difference of opinion) conservatives scratched their head, or a lot more, when the SON of the previous Republican president got the nod for a run at the White House.

  Neither side likes the concept of political dyansties much, except insofar as individuals with brand recognition really have done a yeoman's job in politics on their own.

  Neither Bush, Jr. nor Hillary Clinton had shown anything exceptional prior to their run except brand recognition which is a shameful thing for a Democracy to sink to when considering new leaders.
