Posted on 02/14/2014 9:48:24 AM PST by illiac
At least every week now, there is a new story supporting the narrative of an inevitable 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential bid. Indeed, the conventional wisdom is that it is an absolute certainty that she will run. If anyone is currently saying, flat out, that Hillary isn't running, I haven't come across them. Is the inevitability of her run really as certain as the conventional wisdom suggests, and further, is it unfolding in an optimal manner for the potential candidate?
In all likelihood, Clinton will not make a final, "go-or-no-go" decision until early next year, after the dust has settled from the midterm election. Generally speaking, few presidential contenders make their final decisions before the preceding midterm, and, with the notable exception of Texas Gov. Rick Perry in 2011, most have been laying the groundwork for a long time for a potential run. Most have already been attending countless state and county Jefferson-Jackson (for Democrats) or Lincoln (for Republicans) dinners, meet and greets, and other events to prepare for the potential campaign and the ensuring shakedown (if they do, in fact, decide to run).

She’ll look like an albino Jabba the Hut in HD
I thought it was the pope? Or was that the funny hat one?
Not too old. Too marxist.
What she is is too communist, too dishonest, too stupid, and too without talent to run.
I suspect this is a stalking goat article. Used to flesh out the landscape for Hillary’s campaign.
I confess that I would LOVE to see a Clinton vs Palin race.
Maybe too sick? Besides, from what I read in the grocery store checkout the other day, Bill will be dead in < 6 months anyway.
No she is too unhealthy of mind and body has little to do with age
Not too old, but her political facetime clock has run out. 2008 was her last hope.
What difference does it make at this point, anyway?
That's a silly question. People age differently. The question should be "has hillary aged too much to run?". To that the answer is yes, although it would be fun to see Ted Cruz shred her in debates.
The only thing that old nag is ready for is the glue factory.
Well, certainly. If she wasn’t too old, we’d see another fake picture or two of her and faithful hubby on fake dancing some beach in Jamaica or such, cellulite thighs and all.
She’s a vile, duplicitous, lying pretender-to-a-throne-of-the-diseased-mind that can’t even work up the courage to divorce the lying bastard and stand on her own. Her ascendency is all about made-up impression rather than provable substance.
Hillary will be the Democrat’s Bob Dole.
She’ll be the same age as Ronald Reagan or Golda Meir. But there’s no comparison to either.
Looks pretty runny to me, like an overripe Limburger.
No, she’s not too old.
She is too drunk and unhealthy, though.
She’s too incompetent to run.
Herself, Madame Benghazi, the Cold & Joyless, is no Margaret Thatcher. Heck, Herself is not even Barbara Bush.
They forgot the terminally ugly part!
She’s going to wind up dying of a stroke. We know she has problems.
Heck, no! All one must be is over 35 and alive.
Should Mrs. Clinton run for office she shouldn't be elected. Too much baggage and no positive accomplishments.
Of course, this is the country which elected and reelected not only her husband but also that illegal alien, Marxist, Muslim currently occupying the White House.
And the MSM would then charge Cruz with bullying and woman hating.
In a world of accountability and merit (no this isn’t a movie trailer) she’d have been excluded by public decree.
If she was a republican we would be told that she’s too old and too white. The party of old, white people is now the democrats.
the hildebeast doesn’t “run”....she slithers
Do not underestimate the Beast. She is a lot of things but she is not stupid. She has more experience at campaigning, stronger name recognition and the ability to raise more money than any other potential candidate on either side.
If she runs she will be a formidable opponent.
No Reagan was too old but Hillaryous is a spring chicken. Besides, “...what difference does it make”?
If Cruz and Paul stay true to themselves, they'll be fine
The hillaristas are getting old, along with hillary. They aren't going to appeal to younger voters. TedCruz and RandPaul are appealing to a younger generation, who mostly blame hillary and her peers for the mess the US is in now. And Bill Clinton? He hasn't been president since 2000. Younger voters were in elementary school then.
Even if one could find a video clip of HRC saying in 1979 or 1980 that Ronald W. Reagan was “too old” to be President, it would make no difference whatever. The large number of “American” socialists are fully committed to her candidacy for anything she runs for in the next election.
You may not realize how much you just complimented one Robert J. Dole, formerly of KS.
They may be getting older but they are also becoming more shrill.
“You may not realize how much you just complimented one Robert J. Dole, formerly of KS.”
Oh gosh! I am so sorry.
Naw. She can still run.
Them cankles act as shackles so it won’t be anymore than a quick walk...
Fat ass, sagging tits Hillary too old to run?
Brain damage from that head injury last year should preclude any presidential aspirations.
Of course she wears depends, and I’m sure they are real soggy as well.
Hillary should be sitting in a prison cell wondering why they never have chocolate pudding.
Because every time I turn around I hear from some otherwise intelligent female declaring their support for this disaster of a candidate. I'm afraid she can count on more than 50% of the vote without even breaking a sweat.
Yep, that’s why my Run, H!, Run bumper sticker is on my front bumper.
Yes she is
In 2008, was Hill too old? No! Was she the odds on fav? Yes! How hid she make out? Ask Barry! In 2016 will she be too old? No! Will she be the odds on fav? Yes! How will she make out? Time will tell.
I have to disagree.
Those people who say Hillary is the smartest woman in the world are the very same people who say Michelle Obama is beautiful.
Hillary is as far from smart as Michelle is far from beautiful.
Doesn’t mean she won’t be elected in this idiot infested country, but if she is elected, we will then have a very stupid and talentless woman as president.
I’d say the only person who stands a chance of beating her is Cruz.
I’d also say that there’s a very good chance that Obama is going to be our last president.
That took me a moment. My first reaction was "Robert Dole didn't join the DC office of Atlanta law firm King & Spalding (K&S) after he left Congress, he joined the DC office of Atlanta law firm Alston & Bird (A&B)."
I have tunnel vision.
Yes she’s too old! She has been running for this office since the 1990’s.
Ready for Hillary? Sorry, past the expiration date.
