Just a thought. If a pollster calls and asks you if you think Hillary should run in 2012, tell them Hell, Yes!
divisive 1980 style Democratic primary? I like.
Problem is, whom do the Republicans run. I like Sarah Palin, but I think her resume is a bit thin at this point, and if we are going to echo 1980, the comparison with Reagan will crop up, and he at least had two full terms as governor and was able to fully form his ideas.
Huckabee is right out no. Essentially he’s a pro-life Obama so I don’t see any major difference aside from Mike’s not being anti-American.
Romney needs to explain himself, he’s flip-flopped too much.
Pawlenty? Daniels? Don’t know much about them.
“Anybody But Obama” is not good enough.
I think it’s a no brainer. I have a $100 bet with a friend of mine that she will in fact run. She’s a Clinton. The incumbent is weak. The poll #’s look good for her. Her age is working against her if she doesn’t win soon. Unless she’s bought off somehow, how does she NOT run? And the Dem’s in congress would suuuure like to have some coat tails (that aren’t all covered in crude oil) to hang on to.
I’m thinking a nice bottle of Patrone for the hot afternoons.
The Hillary Clinton dismount from the Obama cabinet will be a great popcorn moment, as the frothy left will start a serious split. Obama has hired someone that he cannot fire, and I am not talking about Petraeus. Hillary will make her dismount soon as fecal matter starts hitting the spinning blades with foreign policy. She will pick a fight over the treatment of Israel (keep the Jewish vote Democratic) and force Obama’s hand to fire her. When she is gone, she has the “victim bonafides” that are essential to her base and will take her 15% out of his approval rating, dropping him well below 30 in every poll.
Interesting thesis Pablo. If it goes down that way, it will have to be a few months to a year after November. For her, it would be better sooner than later. As you said, time is not on her side.
