QUOTE
(CNN) -- There are few certainties in American politics. But you can write it down: If Hillary Clinton wants to be the next nominee of the Democratic Party to be president, the job is hers.

Joe Biden, Andrew Cuomo, Mark Warner, Martin O'Malley and the others in the long list of commander-in-chief wannabes will go about their day jobs for the next couple years, but at the back of their minds will be only one question: Will she or won't she?

Because, as the most popular politician in America -- who also happens to be married to America's most popular ex-president and who has in place a nationwide network of donors, campaign staffers and committed supporters -- Clinton has the power to keep potential rivals from raising money or gaining political traction simply by saying, "I haven't decided what my plans are." She's in control.

That's after he fulfills his pledge on his run at Obama right? At which point he'll be carrying around some extra weight care of the United States Secret Service. Weight doled out in grains.

I wonder if Ted gets a bit extra tanned from all the laser designator illumination directed his way? :D

Ted's all bark and no bite.

Hillary's got some bite to go with her bark though.

I think she will -- and I am now less leery of her than before.  I have always admired her intelligence.  That hasn't changed.  But now, I am also more comfortable with her character.  Her stint as secretary of state showed me more of her public service side.

Really though. Lets spread the presidency around some more. 44 presidents out of a half a billion or so Americans in our history. Two Bush's was too much and two Clintons will be as well. Not to mention her Benghazi failure.

I should think that all of us want to be judged on our own merits and demerits?

Was that an inside job too, just like Aurora and Sandy Hook? How much does Alex Jones pay you to promote his conspiracy theories?

That's where you always go. But obviously you didn't watch her utter pathetic performance on Benghazi. I suppose you pay a lot of attention to AJ as much as you seem to know about him.

Firstly, your the one promoting Alex jones. I've never quoted him. Further you are the one attacking gun owners and calling them all the horrible things that you do here regularly.

Ok HG. To the subject, Mrs. Clinton has not satisfied too many people on the hill with her Benghazi failure, and she's stale in my opinion. I would prefer she retire.

.. Will she or won't she?

When she gets elected in 2016 and re-elected in 2020, that should be enough time for Christie to see if Weight Watchers worked out for him.


Should be, anyways.

She has been pretty effective. As much as I liked Colin Powell, he acted on faulty intel, as did W and the same dogs of war are biting at Hillary's heels that defended W. Realistic expectations should be a bigger part of the political culture.

Ben-where-ever failure, yeah, right.  Of course, disregard the Ambassador's decision to go there.  He was just a tool afterall, taking direction from the Secretary every minute, obeying orders.

BS.  He made the decision, he got himself killed.  That's the facts.  Poor judgement, sure, good intention, sure.  But he still got himself killed.

Period.  Cut the crap already.

HYOH,

The ambassador....the one Hil kept referring to as Chris because they were such close friends?

The close friend that we are supposed to believe NEVER let her know of his concerns for the safety of his team over there despite his many requests for added security?

That guy

The guy that actually ended up with less security despite all his requests and warnings

The guy that died along with 3 other Americans and we are told the details do not matter any more because it has been four months and nobody can be expected to remember whatever stupid mistakes they may have made four months ago.

Perhaps there is an Ambassadors Handbook that clearly states that by going to an overseas posting you are aknowledging our inability and unwillingness to provide competent security measures for you and your staff and that when TSHTF we will not be available to take your call

We truly do get the govt we deserve....
