With Gov. Jerry Brown (D-CA) joining Elizabeth Warren and other in deciding not to run in 2016, it looks like Hillary Clinton will have no serious challenger for the Democratic nomination in 2016.
According to the LA Times, California Gov. Jerry Brown has ruled out another run for the Democratic nomination in 2016, No, thats not in the cards. Unfortunately. With his impressive record as governor, Brown would have presenting a serious and interesting challenge to Hillary Clinton. However, it is looking more and more like Democrats have decided to clear the field for Hillary in 2016.
Last month, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) also ruled out running in 2016, Im not running for president and I plan to serve out my term I pledge to serve out my term. I am not running for president. I am working as hard as I can to be the best possible senator I can be. I am working as hard as I can to be the best the possible senator that I can be and to fight for the things that I promised during my campaign that I would fight for. I am fighting for bank accountability. I am fighting hard to help rebuild Americas middle class.
There are no top tier Democrats who want to challenge Hillary Clinton in 2016. Maryland Gov. Martin OMalley said that he wouldnt run if Clinton does, and former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer is tinkering with the idea, but he seems far from serious about a run. Hillary Clinton will likely get a primary challenger, but it will be a no-chancer like Dennis Kucinich.
The 2008 Democratic primary was good for both candidates and the Democratic Party. Clinton and Obama pushed each other, and they became better candidates because of it. The reason why Obamas campaign against McCain seemed so easy was because beating Clinton was that hard. Hillary Clinton will be a great 2016 candidate, but all Democrats would be better served if she had a serious challenger.
It is easy to understand why Brown, Warren, or any other top Democrat wouldnt run. Clinton will be a formidable candidate with deep support within the party, and a gigantic campaign war chest. It would take a candidate of Barack Obamas caliber to defeat her, and Elizabeth Warren is no Obama.
However, it would be best for the party if Clinton was not allowed to veer too far away from the partys leftward shift. Clinton could use a serious challenger, but it looks like no one is willing to step up to the challenge.
“With his impressive record as governor, “
The stupid. It burns.
You do NOT want to mess with her, sucka!
Come again? Are we talking about the same Jerry Brown?
I think it’s called, The Vince Foster Effect.
I say watch Axlegrease, Gibbs, and Plouffy.
If they jump on board with the Clinton Crime Family, it’s game over.
And if they don’t, remember January 2008...
Oh, come on EW face the general public........
really the mocking will be monumental......
and I need a really hearty laugh laugh.
President Aunt Esther.
Look out sucka.
Or any GOP opposition, I expect.
I really think that’s why she stayed behind at Orca’s estate in Hawaii with Valerie Jarrett and the rest of the entourage. They’re planning her campaign.
What about Biden?
As Spock would observe: One less marxist traitor in the race.
Logical, but sad!
These are blatant people. They think they're just that much smarter than anyone else. They have pens. And phones.
No vote from myself ! But need someone who run on the GOP ticket and win ! Don’t want a feminist woman run the USA ! I am sure the comments would be pretty rude from my mouth !
Mchelle will not run.
She has never maade a single speech about anything other than food and exercise. If she were running, she would already be all over the map talking policy.
Warren did not say she will not take the VP slot.
So if Cankles doesn’t run the Dems have no candidate!?! Hmmm
I think 2012 proved that the Chicago Mob could elect Charles Manson as POTUS if they wanted to.
If MooseChelle wants the job, it’s hers to have.
I really don’t think “What difference does it make!” could survive a primary. The ‘RATS make sure their creations don’t have any competition that would cause their “war chest” to decrease.
In ‘04, Obama ruled out an ‘08 run also:
“You know, I am a believer in knowing what you’re doing when you apply for a job. And I think that if I were to seriously consider running on a national ticket, I would essentially have to start now, before having served a day in the Senate. Now, there are some people who might be comfortable doing that, but I’m not one of those people.”
I think its called, The Vince Foster Effect.
If the GOP gets its way, there will be one. I just hope we get our crap together and stop them in time. But I keep seeing comments here that mirror the Romney voting.
If the furthest of right wing sites still has people willing to compromise yet again and vote for another lib repub, we just need to all go home now. because the rest of the Right will embrace one easily.
We’re all assuming that Secretary Clinton will live long enough to see 2016. Have you seen her lately? Two women, neither of which has any discernible executive experience (i.e., governor, CEO, mayor, military officer, etc.)? Well, it did work for Barry and Joe, so why not?
“President Aunt Esther. Look out sucka.
haha, I love it. I wonder what cabinet post the Kingfish will get.
I don’t think the Dems would run 2 women.
I’m guessing Hillary goes with DeVal (Baraq Jr.) Patrick or Cory (Baraq III) Booker. With the unspoken promise that he’ll be POTUS in 2025. Gotta keep those votes from the ‘hood at 105% of registered voters.
Which is why they had to destroy Krispy Kreme now, rather than wait.
The kiss of death.
A lot of FReepers were saying ole BJ wouldn’t last long after he left office, and (with the help of some excellent cardiologists) he’s still around.
It seems like old leftys go on forever re: Soros
Will Huma be first lady?
He does not know where he is.
Of course not.
That is how the communists free up their voters to vote for gop-es and RINOS in the Republican open primaries.
There is no real choice to make for the communist nominee so voting in a commie primary is irrelevant and therefore unnecessary.
This is exactly where they will go here in Texas and they STILL will not close the primaries. .
It's all about politics i.e. will this person vote my way.
Obama, Hillary, Fauxcahontas. Such inexperienced marginally intelligent people. But they vote the "right" way and are good at public speaking i.e. hoodwinking. And so they get elected.
Obama won in 2012 because:
Romney made an idiotic remark about the 47%.
Almost on the same level as Akin & Mourdock comments on women getting pregnant by rape.
Romney could not attack Obamacare, which is Romney’s illegitimate child.
People liked hearing president Zero was going to wars in Iraq & Afghanistan.
Zero gave 800 Billion dollars in stimulus money to his cohorts in unions & green energy and other contributors,
something Romney could not match. A lot of that money was
plowed back into campaign cash for Zero.
47 million on food stamps is a formidable force to contend with. Big food corporations love this program. Hard to run against Santa Clause.
Some Christians have bigoted attitudes towards Mormons and stayed home on election day.
Hilda has none of the advantages of incumbent Zero.
Even the Chicago democrat machine can not anoint Hilda.
I hate to be cynical, but for awhile now felt that the only way to beat them is to do the same. Groom conservatives to act as moderate-left candidates - and infiltrate their ranks. Run candidate in their primaries to disrupt them. I would not be surprised a bit to find out that world socialists/communists have been working for decades to infiltrate the Republican party.
Unfortunately, if you can conceive of it, it has to be considered.
..waiting to see who the Dems find as their ‘Ross Perot’ vote splitter of Republican votes. You KNOW it’s gonna happen.
Slow-Joe is OUT? How sad......
Don't know where Kingfish will end up, but my money's on Grady for Secretary of Defense.
And he willingly helped them being who and what he is. I’m glad they did it. Saves us the trouble. One less excuse for the Right to fall on...”He can win!”
No he couldn’t.
They are clearing the decks. Wonder what the GOP establishment will try and shove down our throats.
I’m with ya. Sadly, I think we all need to “go home now”. People will yelp and scream, but they’l line up and vote for Romney II.
With Holders wife along, it's a sure thing the vote rigging in well in place. Expect new lawsuits over Voter ID and the cries of disenfranchisemnt of blacks to reach a new pinnacle of outrage.
How else is the Left going to sell a nasty-looking old white woman to the black voters and encourage 140% of them to vote?
“..waiting to see who the Dems find as their Ross Perot vote splitter of Republican votes. You KNOW its gonna happen.”
Yes, I have no doubt that the Commies will try to find third candidate to be the spoiler. It is sad the the mindless Republican party has no serious contender to challenge the Marxist.
In January 2014, it’s a bit early to forecast what will and won’t happen in the fall of 2016.
She could fall again you know.......
Cankles & The Squaw 2016
I can see it...as either a ticket or a 70’s sitcom
If we can’t beat Hillary, like a rented mule, the country is lost.
One down, one to go. One of the checkstand tabloids’ covers tonight shows Hitlery and Faye Dunaway as famous people who are dying. Thanks 2ndDivisionVet.
