Elizabeth Dole: Hillary Clinton 2016 ‘Front-Runner’ (RINO's picking their candidate)
Politico ^ | 6/20/13 9:56 AM EDT | By KATIE GLUECK

Former Sen. Elizabeth Dole, who briefly ran for president herself, on Thursday called Hillary Clinton a “front-runner.”

“I have to say as far as Hillary is concerned, you know … we can recognize that we’re past the point of a woman being accepted as president because she almost made it last time, and also just to think she could be a front-runner — a few years ago, that wouldn’t have been something that would have been conceivable,” Dole, a former Republican senator from North Carolina, said on “CBS This Morning.” “But she is the front-runner. Of course, it’s a very personal decision, having been through that myself [for the 2000 election]. It’s something that she will have to decide.”

Dole, whose husband, Bob Dole, was the GOP presidential nominee in 1996, said there are plenty of “capable people” who could run in 2016 and lots of “excellent people in the party,” but it’s too early to name names on the Republican side.

She did, however, name policies, saying that moving on immigration policy could play a constructive role in broadening the GOP’s appeal.

“I think most definitely there are several things that could be helpful,” she said. “This immigration policy that’s being discussed right now, which I think could be a very helpful initiative if that moves forward, immigration certainly in terms of continuing sustained economic growth.”

She continued, “And I think we need to be careful not to be too rigid so that we seem to be unwelcoming to people who might want to come into the big tent.”

Why would Eliz Dole feel the need to say anything positive about Hillary?

What is wrong with these people.

You are assuming that they have ever had sex. I’m not sure that’s a safe assumption. Webb, on the other hand ...

Her husband was another waste of a 4 year presidential election cycle for what once was a GOP I could get behind.

Then McCain.

Nothing like doubling down on losing.

Rush was right when he said its all about making money for political strategists, advertisers, advisors. Not about electing the right man for the job.

Sadly she is right. And after Palin, the left knows they can destroy anyone good, no matter what.

Yep, Webb is the daddy.

Bill would screw a snake if he could arrange it.

Notice how Democrats aren’t bragging about how well Biden is going to do against Republican candidates. We need to start pushing Biden’s candidacy now.

At this stage I think the article is correct in that Hillary would be perceived as the democratic
front runner this early out. It's too early to predict with certainty.

She continued, “And I think we need to be careful not to be too rigid so that we seem to be unwelcoming to people who might want to come into the big tent.”

Liddy, ol' girl, what makes you think the illegals want anything to do with your tent? Aside from tearing it down...and burning it?

Clearly, RINOs are the reason why the GOP is known as "The Stupid Party".
