Posted on 03/19/2014 12:35:21 PM PDT by seanmerc
A Hillary Clinton presidential candidacy looks like a sure thing, with marquee Democratic donors and activists mobilizing for what they see as her inevitable entrance into the 2016 race.
Yet some of Mrs. Clinton's closest confidants and allies aren't sold on the idea that she should run. Their cautions add an unpredictable element as Mrs. Clinton weighs whether to seek the presidency again, a decision she says she plans to make later this year.
One of Mrs. Clinton's top advisers and former aides, Cheryl Mills, believes she should stay out of the contest and has told her as much, according to people familiar with her views. But Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) says she encourages Mrs. Clinton to run every chance she gets.

She shouldn’t run after having a stroke.
And if she does run, she had better be honest about her health.
Her choice for VP will be huge.
I don’t like her.
Her husband, perhaps? :-)
She is incapable of being honest about anything. I really believe her body is just a vessel for a dead soul.
You are part of a long and distinguished list.
She should wait for 2020. She will look even younger and be in better health then.
So Christie, then.....
It’s an ugly thought, isn’t it?
The Clintons are corrupt but they are NOT stupid.
They can see things are NOT trending their way.
I’m expecting Cory Booker to be floated in 2016 by the Chicago Machine.
You'd think that, wouldn't you? Of course, you'll find the formula to Coca-Cola before you'll see her hubby's medical records. Or W's for that matter. When we were a free country, we demanded stuff like that.
My theory is that she has a severe alcohol problem. I think they're worried that it will become more obvious if she can't stay sober.
When has she ever been honest about anything?
When was the last time the Clintoons were honest about anything?
Interesting. I have raised a similar point that after Obama beat Hillary in ‘08, his peeps are now firmly convinced that the Presidency is their personal property.
I feel the Democrat Party is going to have a really, really hard time nominating non-minorities going forward.
Classic! You were posting that as I was typing the same thing! Great minds think alike.
Do you think Christie would join her ticket?
Oh I am so glad! Please don’t run HilLIARy against us! We are so afraid of HilLIARy running. You should not do that.. we would lose so bad if you did, people love her so much
You can do ANYthing just don’t run HilLIARY against us!!
It would be a coronation to being the Queen of Hell...because that is what the rats are leaving to the next POTUS.
Are you suggesting that Bill and the Hildebeast have been less than completely forthcoming with the American people?
But they feel and share your pain!
I agree. Videos of Hillary with her "Reset" button, her earlier attempts at nationalizing health care, as well as Benghazi are just a few things going against her. I also think her health is more of an issue than Hillary's camp is letting on. If she has any kind of health episode in a public setting with the cameras rolling, that will be it for her.
Regarding Booker, I think he may get some consideration as the VP candidate, but I can't see him at the top of the ticket - too many parallels with Obama's candidacy. I thought for a while that John Kerry might make another run at the White House, but after his disastrous stint as Secretary of State, I don't see that happening now.
[ She shouldnt run after having a stroke.
And if she does run, she had better be honest about her health. ]
Woody Wilson had a stroke in office and all the libs still love the racist bastard...
I believe she will run and then resign soon after taking office. The REAL candidate will be who she picks as a running mate.
The all hag ticket !
When was that? I don't recall hearing about George Washington's medical records when he ran, or Abraham Lincoln's. FDR's condition was kept secret, as was JFK's. As far as I can find, Reagan was the first candidate to release his medical records, when his age was made an issue. I'm not sure you can point to any Golden Age of American Freedom when this was an expected standard.
Yes!...Run you old hag, run!
I think they hold the key to 2016. Whoever they back will win. So far I've not seen Axlegrease commit to anybody. Messina jumped on the Hillary bandwagon but he's a latecomer to the Chicago mob.
Her choice for VP will be huge.”
So Christie, then.....
I could see them pick Chris Christie and tout it as the “Democrat Bi-Partisan Ticket” just to siphon away enough country club or ignorant republican voters to shoo hillary in then once sworn in all the “Bridge gate” files come out and they impeach Christie as revenge for her husband gettign impeaches and they put Harry Reid or nancy pe-lousy in as VP...
Oh, a lot of us conservatives simply need a little time to adjust and I know we’ll come right around. Say, 2056?
Do you think Christie would join her ticket?
I don’t think she would choose him imho.
The MSM would have a “bi-partisan gasm”.
Along with the “granny gasm” produced by the perfectly timed birth of William Jefferson Webster “lil bubba” Clinton-Mezvinsky.
Hillary should run for President.....of Crimea.
Disappeared on Benghazi also.
Speaking of the Chicago Machine...
Buzz at the Conservative Political Action Conference is that Hillary Clinton might not be running for president in 2016 and might instead be a placeholder for Rahm, who was President Obamas chief of staff before he ran for mayor.
Another theory: Rahm will be Hillarys running mate on a Clinton-Emanuel ticket.
One clue as to ruthless Rahms ambitions: He is being showcased in CNNs Chicagoland, the documentary series produced by Robert Redford which debuted on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Zeke, the bioethicist and fellow at the Center for American Progress, has emerged as the chief apologist for Obamacare.
The doctor just released a book titled: Reinventing American Healthcare: How the Affordable Care Act Will Improve Our Terribly Complex, Blatantly Unjust, Outrageously Expensive, Grossly Inefficient, Error Prone System.
And Ari the template for the brash Ari Gold character Jeremy Piven played in Entourage is being credited with killing Mel Gibsons career with the column he wrote in the Huffington Post back in 2006, urging Hollywood to shun Gibson for making anti-Semitic remarks.
She IS power hungry and feels entitled to the presidency...if she has a pulse she's running..if not the dims will prop her up for a weekend at Bernie's campaign.
The last thing she would want to do is draw more attention to Benghazi.
In my view Clinton/Emanuel doesn’t have enough “color” to pull in the entitlement army.
I can see Clinton/Booker or Patrick
or Emanuel/Booker or Patrick
She can’t pass the physical. Her body is producing blood clots and if one goes to her brain or lungs, she’s done.
She hasn’t been honest about anything in her life. Why would she start now?
You make that sound like it's a bad thing.
“My theory is that she has a severe alcohol problem.”
I’ve been saying this, too. Think alcohol first when someone has a “fall” and very few clarifying medical details are provided to the public.
If America would elect this piece of crap of crap criminal as a follow up to Obama then America is over..........
1) He is intensely unlikeable, even in his own party.
2) Highly publicized problems with unions. They'll take revenge.
3) Americans don't elect mayors president. Not sure why, but we don't.
Deval Patrick is a child. He was basically a front man for the Democrats in the Mass Legislature.
I guess you could say something similar about the incumbent, but Deval doesn't have the kind of machine that got behind Obama.
Obama lite doesn't look like a winning recipe for 2016.
Cory Booker -- likewise too inexperienced -- and unmarried (and kind of a child himself).
I wouldn't write off White guys like Schweitzer or chicks like Gillibrand.
Probably Julian Castro is too young and only a mayor and with a name like Castro, he'll have a lot of explaining to do, but the country might relish having a twin in the White House.
At the very least, the jokes that couldn't be avoided might lead to a rebirth of political satire.
Well, let’s say she throws a blood clot and it goes to her brain and she has a massive stroke. The Democrats will still elect her President. She’ll give her State Of The Union Speech and say “Smarg granfu skronk blat” and Chris Matthews will be on TV saying that was the greatest State Of The Union Speech he’s ever heard and I’ll laugh so hard that I’ll shoot beer out of my nose and I hate to waste good beer.
