36. I greatly admire Hillary. But America has already moved to the next generation

 

and will not go back a generation, IMHO. Besides, I believe her when she says she isn't interested.

That does raise a question about who will come to the forefront in the next 4 years. There is no obvious heir apparent. Biden is of the same generation as Hillary and will not be the candidate.

It has been in Obam's advantage to not have anybody emerging while he is running. But I didn't see any speakers at the DNC that were obvious candidates. Julian Castro will need more experience. Deval Patrick looked the most like a real candidate to me. I have my doubts about two African Americans being able to win back-to-back. I know it shouldn't be an issue, and I'd personally have no trouble supporting Patrick, but there could be an element of "What, white people aren't good enough any more?" from some quarters.

I wonder about Ted Strickland. He might be well positioned.

What about Jennifer Granholm?
