Where Are Hillary Clinton's Democratic Rivals? Seriously! What Will We do?

I'd like to know this two - what, is she going to debate herself? This is ludicrous and truly pisses me off! Hey, how about one of the Cruz twins (as in Julian and Joaquin - not THAT Cruz) Thank ma nature he doesn't have a twin! He's more than enough. We don't need more than one asshat! Although there are plenty more mentioned in the opinion piece.

The Missing Democrats

As the campaign to succeed President Obama shifts into high gear, Republican voters seem assured of a contested race for their party's nomination that will feature generational, geographical, occupational and ideological contrasts. On Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida announced his candidacy for the 2016 nomination, joining declared or almost-declared candidates Jeb Bush, the former Florida governor; Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker; and Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas.

All these candidates profess to be conservatives, but differences abound on issues from immigration to school reform to the U.S. role in the world. (Paul, though he denies being an isolationist and supports military action against Islamic State, says that “my predisposition is to less intervention.”) There will be at least nine debates before the party's convention next summer in Cleveland, offering ample opportunity for a clash on the issues and greater clarity about what the candidates believe and how they would translate their convictions into policy.

There also will be posturing and evasions, of course. But debates refine candidates' positions in a way that inquisitions by the press cannot.

That brings us to the Democratic presidential field. In order to have a debate you have to have more than one candidate, and to have a debate that will command public attention you need a real contest.

2. Mistakes are inevitable

and when the frontrunner's campaign gets bogged down with stuff, some folks will come up with the courage and money to run.

We got more than a year to go, and stuff happens.

We have until nomination, and then election day. As much as I would rather see another candidate, I cannot vote for Jeb Bush....

3. It's early. Frankly I'm depressed that campaigns start this soon in the first place.

 

Don't let the number of repub candidates fool you: They're mainly interested in future book deals, speaking fees, and laundered Super-PAC donations.

8. Sorry, fast cruzing on my mind, unfortunately.

Seriously, maybe she can debate a DUer! Skinner?

Didn't realize there were so many Hillary supporters on here. Must have stumbled on the wrong board.
