She's already running isn't she? I mean she hasn't "declared" which of course gives her the option to opt out and save face once the right get's done smearing some more lies on her, but I'd she's already running.vauge said:The media has spread far and wide that Hillary is seeking the Presidency.
Do you think she will run?
centrium said:Not sure about US politics, but I dont think she would make a good president!! Alhough who's too say she wouldnt do a better job than previous presidents!!!!
Is she disliked because of the things she done or the things the right say she's done.vauge said:I don't think that she is electable, and she knows it.
She is one of the most liked and hated at the same time.
Rice Vs. Clinton?LiberalFINGER said:I once thought that hillary had no chance in hell of getting elected in New York, but we see how that turned out.
I think that everything would depend on what the republicans produce for a presidential candidate. Let's get some choices on the board to kick around and then we might be able to discuss it.
Powell Vs. Clinton?
For the life of me I can't figure out what happend to the GOP. They used to be the party of fiscal responsiblity. Now look at them. Bush hasn't shot down one spending bill in the entire time he's been in office. The deficit is at a level almost unbelievable. What happend to the attitude of Gramm/Rudman? I used to vote GOP on a regular basis, though I've never been a member of any party. But after watching the spending habits coupled with the sleeze ball political tactics (I just loved this last election where they sent out fliers in West Virgina claiming that if Kerry was elected he was going to outlaw the Bible, nice)- I feel like invoking Ronald Reagan and saying "I didn't leave my party, my party left me."Hoot said:>I honestly don't know who'll survive the Demo heap- but I really think McCain has a soild shot for the GOP in '08<Pacridge
I'd love for the Republicans to nominate McCain, but it ain't gonna happen.
This would mean the Republican party actually nominated someone of substance for a change.
I'm not holding my breath.
I hold both liberal and conservative beliefs, but I'd feel much better about the state of our nation with someone like McCain in the White House than the current occupant.

From what I can tell they blame the war. Bush used to give speeches where he stated that he promised during the 2000 presidential campaign that he would only allow the federal budget to go into deficit in times of war, recession or national emergency, but he never imagined he would "have a trifecta." Problem with that statement is he never said it. Least not publicly. And not that he or the White House or the White House Press Corps could find. After the Washington Post ran an article pointing this out, he took the lie out of his speeches.Hoot said:.
Of course, you're right...the republicans have shown no fiscal responsibility, and the last time I checked, they control the House, Senate and the White House, so who are they gonna blame for their outrageous, obscene spending?
Last week I read we have 10 times as much "pork" in the new budget as any amount ever in a dem controlled congress.
We are now spending more money, per capita, on each citizen in Iraq than we are on our own US citizens.
Personally I like Spotted Owls- fried in Exxon Oil.Hoot said:You'll think I'm a tree-hugger, but Bush did nothing to save the spotted owl and used the excuse of saving jobs.
