Ignore the talk about purity tests, progressive cred, and skipping to a post-presidency status. Clinton wont be denied this timeand shes going to make history.
The non-race for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, all but unprecedented in non-incumbent contests, is confounding to journalists and pundits, to the quoteratti whose words sustain their output, and to the partisan spinners whose mission is to bend the arc of the story. But the political cycle-and the 24-hour news cyclehas its own relentless rhythms. If youre one of the boys, and now girls, on the bus, even if it hasnt rolled into Iowa yet, its hard to cover a foregone conclusion. If youre a Republican, then just maybe Hillary Clinton, the certain nominee if she runs, can be damaged or deterred.
If youre on the left, maybe you can nudge her ideologically. Or you can just come up with a fresh take, attention-getting and perhaps friendly, even if its implausible and unpersuasive, an unavailing piece of unsolicited advice.
All this will happen all the way until Hillary announcesand will mutate into variant strains until the day shes inaugurated.
One recurrent meme is that she isnt liberal enough to prevail in the primariesa wish dressed up as analysis or a weirdly poll-uninformed argument....

Christie and Trump should challenge her.
Exactly. No other dems seem to be remotely in shouting distance.
Maybe Hitlary Clinton can explain why she refused to label Boko Haram as a terrorist organization..but hey, when it comes to being a Communist, one must not have to explain why they condone murder
Hillery will not stand a chance!
So the orders have gone out that she is untouchable?
So would Dennis Kucinich, Ralph Nader, some peace/antiwar candidates, attack her from the left where all the radical Lib trolls live in primaries.
And then out of no where a Banana Head whooped her a$$
Hurry up. I want to vote for her.
Crash and burn this thing asap! Can’t take it anymore.
Gore and Biden too?
The Left has no moral compass. The only value they hold is make new laws and expand government if there’s a problem or perceived problem, Constitution be dam-ed. The party of malicious tyrants is moved along by the justifications of naive do-gooders (and careless students who blindly vote for things like “cool”).
White man speak with forked tongue. Fauxcahantas has a surprise waiting for Hillary. Ambush at Old Lady Creek.
Who gave all the Democrats a “stand down” order?
The same one who gave the US military a stand down order on 9-11-2012?
she is untouchable?
We will have a woman for President but it will be Sarah.
Our only hope is to find a qualified female candidate who will challenge her on these issues and run an error free campaign. IMHO.
Boy, who could that be? Some Ripon Republican from the Northeast or upper Midwest?
The dems are trying for a repeat of 2012: their candidate is coronated while the GOP’s candidates tear each other up in a circus-like media coverage atmosphere. It’s nauseating.
The GOPe fighting its own base doesn’t help a damn bit either.
She can’t pass the physical. Her body is producing blood clots.
