    She'll get the nomination. However, the general election won't be a cakewalk. The nation is evenly split down the middle: 45% will vote Dem and 45% will vote Rep no matter who is on their respective tickets. The fight is over the 10% in the middle.

    If it's her and Trump, then she already won. There's no way Trump will out do her in a debate. It'll be a differ ball game.

    That writer seems remarkably uninformed. The Republicans aren't exploring the female option?

    Uhh, ok. :rolleyes:

    If Trump actually gets the nomination, that means there is a huge invisible mass of Americans who are completely disgusted with traditional politics and career politicians. That would be very bad news for Hillary.

    I don't follow them, so I really don't know who they have if anyone

    I'll give you a hint: it rhymes with 'snarly failorina'.

    I can't understand how anyone could vote for her. She has a track record of poor decisions and switches her stance on many issues, ie is gullible. Would you really be getting a Democratic candidate?

    I don't think the democrats have to worry a single bit about whether or not someone would do well in a general election when picking their candidate. The GOP is such a shisthow right now, they are pretty much guaranteeing that a democrat will win it. Remember that "postmortum report" after Romney lost, called the "Growth and Opportunity Project" by the GOP? It outlined all the things that went wrong and how to not repeat those mistakes. Well, they've thrown that out and decided to do the exact opposite. So I'm not worried about whether either democratic candidate can win in the general election.

    I predict that the democratic candidate, regardless of who that is, will win the general election by the largest margin since Bill Clinton. Democrats might even get close to or over 400 electoral votes this time around.

    I used to be "in the middle". Now, the Democratic Party is the middle, and, the fact that the current Republicans insist that there is not and cannot be overlap is the most frightening thing I've seen since 1983 Able Archer 83. The Republican Party has done everything possible to alienate me.

    I can't wait until Hillary wins just so I can see all the conservatives' heads explode.

    I thought they lost their **** after a black guy got elected and had no more **** to lose, but I was wrong, it was only the beginning.

    I'd love to share. ;-)

    Seriously though... which GOP candidate even stands a chance?

    Yes, as opposed to how rock-ribbed a conservative The Donald is? You sure you're getting a conservative there?

    Just like a liberal, deflect and find the similar comparison. Not a trump fan my friend.

    You do know that Carson is black right? Republicans would love to see him in office.

    If he gets the nomination then I would expect to see the Libertarian party go from one percent of the vote to 5% or so...

    I vote the the candidate who most closely matches my political values AND stands a reasonable chance of winning.

    HRC is more liberal than any Republican candidate, ergo she'll get my vote.

    Can you understand that now?

    Seemed like simple logic to me. What part are you having difficulty with?

    In the gym at lunch CNN's headline was (paraphrased), Debate, Biden, and Benghazi Hearing, Hillary's Best Week Ever?
