and it would make her wiser than Solomon himself
However, when HIllary goes against head to head any challenger, she whallops them.
I think Biden is 2nd, Andew is 3rd, the others in very low single digits.
The best advantage she has is, all her dirt is long time public knowledge.
That plus the advantage she is the most competent and largest resume of any candidate
(probably her qualifications now equal the sum total of the 20 or other second tier candidates beneath her for the office of the presidency.
Trouble with one issue candidates is, they have no record on any other issue but that or they are out of the mainstream or have nothing to say they would do a better job, different job, or anything else to get above Hillary. There is no track record.
(those on the other side loved to spew about the now knwon fraud that was/is Ron Paul.
He yapped alot, but what accomplishment did he ever get ZERO. Because it takes compromise to get an accomplishment in the USA(ask Lincoln and Stevens).
It is just raw number stats. 2016 will have different needs than 2008 did, and from all the candidates already thought of (the 20 or 30 after Hillary), none presents themselves to having anything that says they would win more electoral votes than Hillary.
And like this time, the only ## I care about is 270. I actually don't even care about wedge issues or any issue but the 270.
Because 270 means we all lead a better life, than if the republican/tea/libertarian/otherkook3rdparty were to win the 270.
That is what I care about.
(as Willie Nelson sang "still is still moving to me" so even if we only stayed parallel, it is still better, however, I don't buy that. I say 10% getting something done is alot better than 100% of nothing or moving backwards.
that was the brilliance later on of President Obama using the word FORWARD. I could not think of a better word.
And I hope for another 10% now, another in a couple of years, and then another in 2017 and 2020 and 2022 and 2024.
By that time, counting the 10% up, we would have about 60% of what we want
NEVER will we get 60% at one time. America does not and never has worked like that.
(cliche- slow and steady wins the race, and yes, it does, Nate Silver would say about 91% of the time).
