Skip to comments.Election 2016: Not Bush vs. Clinton, but Palin vs. Biden
Posted on 11/26/2012 11:55:24 AM PST by Marcus
Allahpundit at Hot Air is relating what he thinks may be a nightmare scenario for 2016, the presidential candidacy of former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, the brother of one former president and the son of another. It just smacks too much of dynastic politics.
This is especially true if Bush wound up running against Hillary Clinton, the wife of a former president, former senator and soon to be former secretary of state.
There is an alternative, however

C’mon...what was Biden before Obama snatched him from the jaws of defeat? He’ll be 8 years older, and nuttier. He’ll be primaried and lose.
sorry ,but 2012 was the last Presidential Election ,in 2016 everyone will be pledging allegiance to Obama
It will be Hillary (she will be ready to go after 2 years off before beginning campaign) vs. Bush or Rubio (not a great choice but GOPe will stick them on us). And once again we will be forced to vote for him. Who will win????? Nobody knows.
If by some long shot she gets a SCOTUS nomination would she quit?
Will never happen.
Mrs Palin has been so marginalized by the media.
Until we get control of the progaganda machine - I mean media- the world’s best candidate will never have a rat’s chance
I agree..Obama is seeing what is going on in Egypt and is salivating to do that here(He’s pretty much already done it) he will probably put in a new law in the Constitution saying that he’s President for life, nothing would shock me at this point
Moochelle is going to run as the next Obama Messiah
Jeb Bush?!?!? When somebody sneezes or can’t find their keys they know that it’s the fault of somebody named Bush. There is no way that any Bush could win.
I’d love it of Sarah started running today, but would also love it if a strong, successful conservative governor like Walker, Scott or even Perry (after sharpening his debate and memory skills) would run.
Hot air. That’s all this is.
Unlike the Pubbies who select the next loser in a hierarchy of losers, the dems pick the person who has a shot at winning...
Biden...will be offered some plumb post... Ambassador to Sweden or something to keep him out of the county and occupied...and mouth SHUT..
Is Biden well? I can’t imagine him running for President. He just doesn’t seem all there.
“Obama is seeing what is going on in Egypt and is salivating to do that here(Hes pretty much already done it) he will probably put in a new law in the Constitution saying that hes President for life”
It will be called “Lincolesque” by the propagandist media. One of many reasons those online petitions for secession were foolish and counterproductive.
Biden won’t make it to the general election if Hillary runs. She’ll have that “election” locked down from the moment she announces.
He was my Governor and a pretty good one...
As President..I'd pass
The one and only reason he is being tossed out as a trial balloon for POTUS is his wife, Columba Bush is a Mexican born and raised...
She still has a heavy accent..
Trending demographics favor Joe Biteme. Note tag.

He never was. That hasn’t stopped him so far. Somehow I don’t see the court jester being offered a crown though.
Hill against Rubio: 3-1 in favor of the Hildebeest.
So, who do you think would be the best candidate to run against Hillary?
It’s not going to be either Palin or Biden, but we’d better start lining up some viable candidates soon.
No matter who the Dems run after Obama, they’re not going to have the “first (non-American) (half) black” thing going for them, and it doesn’t look to me like the Dems have any good candidates waiting in the wings. The fact that they are floating Michelle Obama for 2016 lets you know what this is all about: a cult of personality.
But we have time to get a few possible candidates out there. Jeb Bush is certainly a possible, so let his defenders support him and see what happens during the primary campaigns (or before - people often start and then drop out). I don’t think Palin is even a possible, because she has not in any way indicated that she wants to run, she let everybody down the last time by dilly-dallying until the last moment to say she wasn’t running but she wasn’t really supporting anybody else, either - and I don’t think we need that type of candidate. In other words, just because we think they should be the candidate...it doesn’t mean they think it too.
So we need a selection of good, fresh and well-presenting candidates (the elderly lame-brain McCain seems to think he’s going to get it again! NO WAY!) and then when primary season rolls around, there will be some real choices. And we have to start now, not by shooting down possibles right out of the box, but by finding and promoting good people.
Rubio, even though I think he would lose. That's why my tag line says: "We are finished."
Hillary is finished, and I think she knows it. Her performance as SOS has been lousy to really lousy, and she is very clearly subservient to Obama and has let him humiliate her on a number of occasions.
It’s a pity, because Rubio would run all over her, although I don’t think he’ll be the candidate because the GOP-e will simply not permit an Hispanic conservative candidate. It’s going to be an elderly white RINO guy again, hopefully not McCain, although he’s angling for it and seems to have emerged as their spokesman.
I think the Clintons are hoping to get at least a Senate seat for their odious daughter Chelsea. I don’t think she’d be old enough to be president, otherwise they’d be trying for that.
But my money’s on Michelle Obama as the Dem candidate.
I think you're on to something, It would be easier than changing term limits for president. And she would be a shoo-in. An Obama dynasty. And the Obama girls can mature in the house and senate, respectively, before they run for prexy too.
Not any more. I forced myself to vote for Dole, McCain, and Romney, I will not force myself to vote for anyone anymore.
I will vote for Hillary before I will vote for Jeb Bush, Rubio, Jindal.
Read it and weep
Let’s be aware of what we’re up against.
Please don’t mis/underestimate the electorate.
I heard from three people just yesterday who are rather in-the-know and the smart money at the moment is for Hillary to run AND win.
Think about it. Obama was finished, couldn’t get reelection, a disaster on the Constitution, freedom of religion (unprecedented), economy and foreign policy by any standard, except that of the liberal half of this country. But he’s back in to inflict so much damage as he possibly can.
If he’s getting away with Benghazi, and he seems to be- she certainly can.
How is Hillary anywhere close to finished on that scale? Plus, she’s an American citizen - bonus.
I know you’ve thougt of this, but, beware of considering Hil. tolerable in light of all others, even and esp the present occupier. She has no shame, so she appears in some way moral. People love her, so she appears in some way good. She would be worse than anyone else imaginable even her good for nothing “husband”.
I'm wondering when the 'concerned' PDSers are going to quit running that worn out meme.
"Umm, dunno about that..."
We need Bill Whittle. Please go watch him on YouTube in his recent speeches. He could be a serious candidate.
ELECTION 2016??? Seriously, do you really think your vote or your voice actually has anything to do with who actually sits in the WH?
Looks like forty miles of bad road.

Palin? The GOPe wouldn’t even invite her to the Republican convention because they thought that her views are too conservative. And people are actually fantasizing that she’ll be running as the GOPe candidate in the next election? Put down the crack pipe. Will never happen.
Hey, there is an alternative though. Since we’re gonna loose the election to the class warfare scammers anyway, and the takers now outnumber the makers, conservatives should make a concerted effort to start a serious 3rd party, the Tea Party, and run Sarah Palin, JOE WALSH, Allen West or some other solid conservative. Completely trash the GOPe with their stupid socialist candidate that they will deffinitely pick. Hahahaha!! Make the stupid RINO GOPe candidate only get like 25% of the vote in the next election running against the dems and our true conservative Tea Party candidate. Why not? We got nothing to loose now, we already lost it all.
Jeb Bush, IF he runs, will quickly be out in the first primaries when he comes in last.
Biden as well. He is another nonstarter who put the “STU” in STUPID!!
As for Palin vs. Hillary?? I doubt it. It will be someone versus Hillary, but not Palin.
You can say that again......and again, and again...
"I welcome the opportunity to rule the world!"
Joe Biden will be 74 years old on Nov. 20, 2016.
Stop posting nonsense.
(barely hitting touchpad, and leaping backward)
Heh....what a goofball pic of a goofball. Hillary isn’t even capable of being president of her own life.
I hear that lots of people are having that problem with iPads and the like. It's got to do with the sensitivity of the keyboards. Someone posted a link to a tool you can download to stop that, the other day (sorry, I didn't bookmark it).
I still use my trusty old Microsoft natural keyboard and my desktop computer. I much prefer mechanical keys to touchpads.
I’m with you....I have no desire for a handheld device. This is actually a laptop; fairly new, but the touchpad is just crazy-sensitive. This wasn’t the first time I multiple-posted with the thing.
Agree about keys over touchpads. I prefer our older desktop. Too bad they’re going the way of the dinosaurs.
