Four years hasn't been long enough to forget. Some supporters of Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential bid, including Texans, remain bitter over how the last primary turned out, and they want their candidate back on the ballot this year, one way or another.
Petitions are being circulated to encourage Clinton to resign as secretary of state and run for president; write-in efforts are under way to put her name at the top of the ballot.
Some say they wouldn't mind if President Barack Obama did what has long been whispered: swap the jobs of Clinton and Joe Biden, making Clinton the vice presidential nominee and potentially pumping new energy into the Democratic base. A potential worst case, some say, would be teaming Clinton with Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul to create a bipartisan ticket for an emerging third party known as Americans Elect.
"The way Democrats felt in 2000 because of [George W.] Bush v. [Al] Gore is how PUMAs felt about Obama v. Hillary in '08," said Will Bower of Washington, D.C., who helped create the group known as PUMA, which stands for People United Means Action or Party Unity My A-- and counts a number of Texans as members. "There was a moral victor and a technical victor and the two weren't the same person.

Remember that this malevolent hen only ‘’suspended’’ her campaign. She didn’t give up her delegates or return the campaign funds. She will run and keep on doing so until she’s dead.
I don’t think that the Food Stamp President is stupid enough to swap Slow Joe out to State and Clinton in as Vice. Hillary would be president within a day after inauguration due to the tragic fatal ____________________ that befell our beloved Marxist leader.
I am completely in favor of a Hillary run - she’ll make a far better Prez than the maroon now in the White House.
Hillary is TOO Old and TOO Ugly to Run now.
Her Ship has sailed.....
RuPaul/Hillary sounds like a superGAY ticket to me.
Remember what happened to Ted Kennedy after he torpedoed Hillarys Presidential bid—He came down with Brain cancer! Maybe Obama might have some health issues and be forced to resign. Its possible.
Better? You mean like, more efficient? In carrying out what she many times referred to as the exact same agenda?
Yeah, that's what we need - more efficiency in the Obama agenda.
Efficiency, of course, being historically defined as brutality.
It is to laugh.
I remember hearing for months, over and over again, about how the "PUMAs" were going to put McCain in the WH.
Come election day, they all came creeping back to the Democratic ticket like declawed, toothless kittens.
You don’t understand why I would advocate a 3rd party run by Hillary?
