OK, about the idea of Hillary 2016
I know that many people will say it is too early, but let's face it, the same inevitability meme is up and going, so trying not to adress it will leave us looking like ostriches trying to hide our heads in the sand.
I will cut to the chase:
Yes, if she is the democratic nominee in 2016, I will work hard to get her in, as hard if not harder than I did for Obama.
Yes, I think she can be a good president, though I have reservations,
Yes, I do not care if the GOP gets so desperate that they nominate fox news commentator Dennis Kucinich, I will not vote for a GOP, period!
Yes, i do think she can help set up a new generation of democrats, the Hildebrands, the Castros, etc
However, here is where I get very antsy,.
The fact is Clinton got to where she is by helping her husband Bill punch hippies. This is an age where even we Obamabots realize that we need to SHIFT TOWARDS THE LEFT. How do you expect people who want actual progress...aw screw it...LIBERAL policies to not see Hillary as a step back? She is not going to reduce military spending, as she managed to get us involved with the war in Libya, and will NOT rein in Bibi Netanyahu. How are we supposed to think she will do spending when Bill and her still pat themselves on the back for "welfare reform', which, as it turned out, was proven to be bad for the country?
In short, if she is the one, how do we keep what meager progressiv...LIBERAL gains we have from going down the commode?

8. I disagree, Nixon invented hippie punching and every president since save Carter has done it
Hippie punching is a long established tradition in American politics.
