Actually, I was talking about as the 2016 Democrat candidate. Usually, the prior VP is the presumptive candidate. This will not be the case for 2016. He will be forced to undeclare in lieu of an even-better minority Messiah. This country won’t elect an old white man any more, no matter whether he’s a Democrat or not.
It won’t be Hillary, either that replaces him. She’ll be a minority, Mexican decent or black, or a much younger flaming liberal like Fluke (but not her).
I disagree with the minority/gender argument for selecting our next candidate. How many blacks and women and Hispanics and Asians rewarded Reagan and GWB for all of their amazing appointments to the Supreme Court and their Cabinets?
Identity politics doesn’t work for us. It’s all about message and finding the right person to deliver it.
