Voted for who, West Coast? Obama? Where are you hanging out? Right now, let's take a look at who's on the block for the Right...Ted Cruz.? Tom Cotton? Rand Paul? Scott Walker? I realize these aren't the first string or surely Hilary will win.

Truth to told, I think it's calculated to make Jeb look good.

We are living in scary, scary times.

I'd like to see the GOP put Carson up as their VP candidate. And as I said in my earlier post if he handles that office as well as he's handled himself in his brief dip into public life so far, he might well be a contender for the top job a few years down the track.

Would Rubio be considered too young for the #1 spot? He ticks a lot of boxes the GOP really needs to seriously consider to be seen to be ticking if they want to step away from their traditional 'rich middle aged protestant white guy' as their preferred candidate. Minorities, among swinging voters, have become far more important today than they once were.

I don't know if Rubio would be as flawed a candidate as so many other hopefuls are, but surely, unless he's found to be a serial killer, whatever his flaws, he'd be preferable to Hilary Clinton. As an Australian, I see in her disturbing parallels to our recent (and I can assure you, extremely painful) experience with a very flawed female leader. Would the USA survive (and remain as anything even slightly resembling the world power it once was) another four or eight years of leadership like it has had over the last six years? (As - again as an outsider - I suspect would continue more or less the same under Hilary Clinton as it has under Barak Pbama.)

Rand Paul, I think, is just a bit (should that be 'waaay'?) too radical to attract the middle of the road voter. Some of his ideas might actually be necessary to fix the current US malaise, but I don't think a lot of Americans would be willing to endure the pain that those ideas would bring with them if they were ever implemented.

Well, he was the community organizer. As far as hanging out, in a county that went for Obama. Have a feeling they learned however.

So West, Lonewolf: Do you think we should do that again? (Vote for a guy with no leadership experience, like Carson)

As usual, this is shaping up to be a "hold your nose" choice. Hillary may as well start picking out her White House China set.

Well, there went dinner.

Obgraham

I would be wary of him on the top of the ticket. I wouldn't be surprised to see him as the number two. You gotta throw a bone to most every constituency. I think BC checks the box for the evangelical crowd while not running off the independent voters.

Michelle's name has already been announced by some (NBC) about as part of a 'Dream Team'.

But one would think that even the Democrats are not that dumb.

But who knows?


Just remember, if you didnít vote for Obama you are a racist.

If you donít vote for Hillary you are a sexist.

Hillary is supposed to announce tomorrow I believe, but they already have the campaign buttons made.

Now, now Fan.


Give the guy a break, after all he was closing in on Kennedy's record on the number of woman nailed in the White House. So with another four or eight years Bill may set a new record.

Actually I would be more worried about Hillary than Bill, I think she's got Bill jewels in a purse now. It wouldn't matter whether you had a son or daughter as an intern, they would both be fresh meat.

What's going on in Yemen? according to the News hundreds of American citizens have been abandoned and been told by their Government that they will not be coming to rescue and get them out? the USA is usually the first in heavily tooled up if necessary to get their own and many others out in situations like this?
Genuine question by a puzzled person not just trying to stir things up.

Must be Republicans still stuck there.


Okay, I'll get serious. It has been my experience that is situations such as this, the State Department give warning to US citizens in a country were things are getting out of control starting with, 'Ya'll just might think about leaving' to 'Get the fu<k out now!' and provide access to transportation.

After the final warning of 'Get the fu<k out now!' and you stay, you're on your own.

However, I am not up to speed about what is going on with the remaining US citizens in Yemen or why President Obama has abandoned them.

Who are this citizens in Yemen and why are they there? Things have been going to hell for quite a while. Are they there by choice? Aid workers? Religious aid workers? Out to provide health and education service and convert the heathens? (Yes, I'm teasing)

I worry for our soldiers, they have been in combat without end for years now. I hope all good Americans are support on the USOs and Wounded Warriors and making sure these brave men and women are getting the arms and support they need to do their jobs. And they care tney need when they come home. And jobs. And places to live. And medical care.

If we have to have another Clinton as President, there's only one sane choice...

I can't wait till the first interview with tough questions. Get her off script and she falls apart. Talking points will get her through a NBC interview, hopefully there's some real journo's left that can grill her.

John, you should be concerned as well. She could be the de facto President of NZ as well.
