Skip to comments.Doug Schoen: Hillary 'Front-Runner on Both Sides' for 2016
Posted on 09/23/2013 8:43:08 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet
Political analyst and Democratic pollster Doug Schoen tells Newsmax that Hillary Clinton is "the front-runner on both sides" if she decides to run for president in 2016.
He also opines that Republicans are making a "political mistake" in backing a bill to defund Obamacare.
Schoen is the author of the book "Hopelessly Divided: The New Crisis in American Politics and What It Means for 2012 and Beyond."
Story continues below video.
In an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York on Monday, Schoen assesses a potential White House run by Clinton.
"First, there is legitimate concern and indecision," he says. "It's a big decision. She served a long time as secretary of state, four years in the Senate before that. So she has to decide if she wants to go through the rigors of the campaign."
"But that being said, she's the front-runner on both sides if in fact she decides to go do it."
"I don't know if it's all but certain, but I do see her running. She'll be elected, and she's on the odds-on favorite as we talk today."
As to who from the GOP could challenge her, Schoen says: "There are lots of Republicans but I haven't seen a front-runner emerge, and the Republican strategy has been less than ideal."(continued)

Remember when they said that in 2008?
Easy, she got one ambassador, and three patriots killed in eight hours.
That's why Jeb Bush gave her some kind of freedom medal...
Didn’t Schoen work for the Clintons? Anywho, Doug, her last ne may be Clinton but she lacks her husbands political gifts.
Hasn’t decided yet? BS, she’s running. And the media right along with her..
She wins both sides? - he’s talking out of his hat (or worse) and should be ignored
This time may she be run over by an Obamaphone truck making deliveries to the great “low education” voter freeloaders.
Now that would be poetic justice.
There is an off-color song to the tune and some words of “She’ll be coming round the mountain, when she comes”. If I weren’t being civil tonight, I could easily add Hillary’s name to the story. The imagery would make you wet your pants in laughter.
Oh well, it’s hard being a gentleman in a world full of assholes.
Very depressing news day. Lois Lerner gets off with a “retirement”; 0bamacare, which no one wants, looks like it’s on its way to passing, and that POS Hillary looks like she might be the next POTUS.
We have so many incompetent, uncourageous people in government! And they seem to be multiplying like rabbits.
he ....like rev not so sharpton...is “talking awl out the side of his neck””
Is there any law that would prevent Hillary from seeing both the Democratic and Republican nominations in 2016?
That way we could go full out Commie dictatorship, two parties, one candidate.
I would not put that past the Clintons and if the eGOP can nominate both McCain and Romney there is no reason they would not pick Hillary.
Lincoln and Johnson didn’t run as Republicans in 1864.
Who needs accomplishments? As long as 90% of the urban areas get their gubmint check, and the women get their free infanticide, the Democrats have that 47% all locked up.
That is, until she gets the top spot at the UN.
And Karl along with the RINO elites were just fine with this as long as they were promised a seat at the NWO table.
I’ll go with ignore this guy. Sheesh they spew B.S. hoping enough people swallow it to make it come true.
These elections are as much about the pundits and consultants as the candidates and we’re the just poor saps who have to choose between one a-hole or the other.
its totalitarin...and the sheeple are just sitting there doing nothing..
I can't accept the idiocy of people anymore....
I feel like Solzhenitsyn........
Looks like Dougie Schoenuff is promoting Mrs. Bill Clinton.
Afterall, Mrs. Bill Clinton did write her Master’s Thesis on Commie Saul Alinsky.
Those lefties do have a special bond, don’t they?
You all are forgetting her note worthy work during the Watergate Investigation.
besides, the rats got the vote thing down pat....
this is not news.....
the last election was indeed the last election....
